Storyline

In the year 2045, the real world is a harsh place. The only time Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) truly feels alive is when he escapes to the OASIS, an immersive virtual universe where most of humanity spends their days. In the OASIS, you can go anywhere, do anything, be anyone-the only limits are your own imagination. The OASIS was created by the brilliant and eccentric James Halliday (Mark Rylance), who left his immense fortune and total control of the Oasis to the winner of a three-part contest he designed to find a worthy heir. When Wade conquers the first challenge of the reality-bending treasure hunt, he and his friends-aka the High Five-are hurled into a fantastical universe of discovery and danger to save the OASIS. Written by Warner Bros.

Trivia

Spielberg worked with Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) to oversee the film's visual effects, meeting with ILM for 3 hours three times a week. A significant part of the film takes place in a virtual space based on the Overlook Hotel in the film The Shining. This was mostly a digital recreation of the film using high-quality telecine of the original film, giving them some freedom of new camera angles and shots that could be generated from this recreation. The final film includes a combination of the original footage from The Shining and ILM's additional work. Only a few scenes in this sequence which involved real actors, such as the appearance of the Grady twins, required them to construct a faithful reproduction of The Shining's set for the actors to interact with. Finally, the sequence was post-processed to introduce film grain and other aging effects to make the new footage indistinguishable from the original film. ILM also had to faithfully produce digital recreations of several of the cultural references that appear throughout the film, including the DeLorean time machine, the Iron Giant, Chucky, and King Kong that was modeled after the 1933 version of the character. The Tyrannosaurus rex from Jurassic Park was also recreated using the same base model that ILM had previously created during the original film production. See more »

Film's New Horizon, Unification of Online Game, Cinema, and Cartoon's Virtual World
24 April 2018 | by hilaryswank2011See all my reviews

This film actually explored the new frontier of the most popular media's unified world.

Spielberg is truly revolutionary in terms of innovation of story telling. He unified the cartoon, online game, attraction of amusement park and live action film into this cutting edge feature film.

The story is simple enough that When the creator of a virtual reality world called the OASIS dies, he releases a video in which he challenges all OASIS users to find his Easter Egg, which will give the finder his fortune.

Avatars are unique and everyone can be idealised even though you are not confident of your looks. I was impressed with Spielberg's homage to the true Japanese international star Toshiro Mifune.

Although Daito is played by the ordinary TV talent Win Morisaki who belongs to the notorious talent agency Stardust Promotion Group, the avatar and its name Toshiro are something made me quite familiar with. Only the post WW 2 era could make Mifune such a decent personality.

If these real characters of avatars are more ordinary, it is more appreciated and close to the real world's audiences.

In this film, we can almost see all major genres and entertainment devices. Such as Godzilla, King Kong, The Shining, Gundom, Robocop and Alien etc. I know there are only US-Japan characters in this film due to its main targeted film market is US-Japan. As Hegel said, this is a synthesis of cinematic story telling. Steven Spielberg was and still is the most advanced and authoritative film director.

I cannot imagine Taiwanese governmental and political creation of Ang Lee stuff is something worth than Spielberg's true Hollywood values. Japanese audiences don't even recognise who Ang Lee is even after Taiwanese government and Chinese Nationalist Party helped to purchase the awards from the world. He cannot do any Hollywood blockbuster and its basic quality without Hollywood crew and casts. He should make films under pure local Taiwanese film conditions with pure local crew and casts. That appears his true quality. And Lee did not even improve or solve any serious industrial issues for local film workers.

Anyway we don't enjoy any Ang Lee stuff no matter it is Made in Taiwan or Made in USA until today however Spielberg is our legend. We love his films! Arrogant Ang Lee brother have actual racial bias against Japanese people.

Japanese people love Spielberg's films as true Hollywood films! However Japanese still don't enjoy any Ang Lee stuff as something worth to see.

We actually see this film as cutting edge film work at present.
