As an admitted nerd, and cyberpunk slut, I didn’t think I would ever be ashamed of my desire to live in the Metaverse. Whelp, here the fuck we are.
This book fucking sucks. This trailer sucks, BUT OH MY GAWD #NERDREFERENCES so a good amount of herbs will jizz their pants.
First trailer for Ready Player One is here! And! It’s…okay? Maybe it was my own reading of RPO, or maybe it’s just an early trailer, but the first look at the movie casts Cline’s source material in a far more dystopic, gritty light than I pictured when reading the novel. I definitely pictured a more bubbly, 1980s, Hughes-esque vibe. You know, a coming-of-age-with-positivity-despite-staggering-adversity type world.
RPO, a shameless masturbation of 1980s and early 90s culture, and fusillade of fan service, is getting a movie adaptation. It’s coming courtesy of Steven Spielberg, and if you’re wondering how the book is going to translate, here’s your first look.
Simon Pegg is joining what is already the considerably talented cast of Spielberg’s Ready Player One adaptation.
Some actor I’ve never heard of has been cast as the main character in one of the most overrated books I’ve read in years.
I suppose this is it, folks. The big virtual reality push. In a couple of years, we’re all going to be looking back at this moment. Wondering how anyone really thought it was going to take off. Or, ideally. We’ll be looking back at this moment as the catalyst for the technological progression that ended with me wearing a headset. Covered in teledildonic devices. Using my haptic gloves to stroke a furry with a priapism half a world a way.
I truthfully wouldn’t be surprised by either of these developments. But I’m hoping for the latter.
Ben Mendelsohn is a great actor, though I don’t know if he is well known. However, soon, the public shall learn the power of The Mendelsohn. Not only is the dude in StarWarRogueOne – A WarStar Anthology tale, but the dude has also landed the villain role in RPO.
Ever since Steven Spielberg signed on to adapt Ready Player One its development has taken off like a mofuckah. The latest bit of news regarding the adaptation is the casting of Olivia Cooke. I am not familiar with Cooke, but I’m going to go ahead and trust Steven and his Alien-Filled Entourage with the casting choices.
Ernie Cline (‘Ready Player One’) is writing third sci-fi novel; has signed enormous deal for publication rights
Ernie Cline is not a good writer. RPO was a decent, enjoyable pastiche. I read the description for Armada and laughed out loud. And yet despite both of those bullshit notes, I’m glad he’s making bank off of his cheap peddling of 1980s nerd nostalgia. ‘Cause that’s pretty much what I wish I was doing in life.
