This film looks really great and is on my list of films to see next year.

Well finally. I loved the book and from what I've heard some of the puzzles will be different in the movie so those who read the book will have fun watching it.

I have a feeling it might stray far from the book. Not because I read the book, but more because that's what Hollywood usually does.

 

I'm not sure if they're going for Cyberpunk. If so, it seems a little ... action heavy? But then most Hollywood movies are.

I know its just a film but highly unrealistic we'll still be using goggles and haptic gloves for VR in 2045, they should have brought the date to 2025....

Unfortunately Spielberg has said he doesn't want to make a film where the majority of easter eggs are self gratifying (most are from Spielberg movies). I think there is a rumour that the only mech in the entire movie will be the Iron Giant... and it won't be voiced by Diesel....


“If the genius of invention were to reveal to-morrow the secret of immortality, of eternal beauty and youth, for which all humanity is aching, the same inexorable agents which prevent a mass from changing suddenly its velocity would likewise resist the force of the new knowledge until time gradually modifies human thought.”

The film looks incredible. I second what another poster said, by the year 2045 people won't be using vr goggles like depicted in the film, it's going to be contact lenses or something else completely.

It will most likely be Matrix-Style VR via nanobots or a powerful headset. According to the timelime, that's possible by the late 2030s. I wish the film used that instead.

@Everyone saying that VR tech needs to be visually better: it's actually explained in the book that human society is completely in decline and that the era where miniaturization like that was possible is behind us. So there's technically a reason.

This is literally my favorite book of all time; I'm so excited they're making it into a movie.

I'm pretty skeptical of movies that practice an over-reliance on pop culture references to appeal. Cameos and easter eggs are not a substantive replacement for everything that makes a movie good.


I always imagined the future as a time of more reason, empathy, and peace, not less. It's time for a change.

Yes, but the book was the bomb.  I loved the book, and as long as the movie can stay close to the book's storyline, it will be good.

Here's the thing about RPO, though— the pop culture references are integral to the story itself. It's more than just "Hey, this thing. Remember?" 

 

That's why the book works so well. It's not pandering to nostalgia (well it is), it ties in all these references to the plot and, without them, you effectively don't have a story at all.

they'll need to depart from the book in a few places. Someone playing a text adventure game or playing pac man the entire way through would not work in a movie format.

Was really different from the book, but kept the same general greatness that made the book so good.  Great movie, but not the same story

I've not read the book or seen the movie yet. My plan is to see if I can get into a movie tonight and post my review of that to my youtube review and inspired prompts channel, and then read the book and review and inspired prompts that as well. I feel like any time a movie based on a book comes out it's libel to face the challenge of converting a dense medium like a book which is often read over days or weeks and contains abstractions and internal thoughts of characters that do not translate well to the screen into something that happens over 2 hours and covers mostly the highlights and action aspects of visual and auditory stimulation.

The book and movie are almost different stories, to the point where only the basic plot points of the book are kept in the movie.  It's not a bad movie, just very different.

Yup, as I would expect. I'm not bothered by that though. I mean I enjoyed the watchmen movie and then read the graphic novel and I like the movie better, but everybody I know who read the graphic novel first hates the movie for betraying the comics. Pretty much the same for the hell boy comic/movies. And I was never invested or even read a green lanter comic so the movie while not the best superhero movie I've seen wasn't bad for me.

 

I've also read some things and then seen the movies and am able to accept them as two different stories, like siblings rather than clones. But I feel like I benefit from enjoying a spectacle and thinking about it first before deep thoughtful reading of a thing and then going to see it made into a spectical and finding it falls short on the contemplation of the topic.

 

Not everything works that way but it's good enough for me to use as a general guide in how to manage pop culture. That and don't become invested in something so much that you can't let it be something a little different when it's reexplored later.

I have seen it now. I will shoot a review and edit it and post to my inspired content channel by monday at the latest.
