READY PLAYER ONE Trailer (2018)



I'm excited for the movie, because reading something (esp pages and pages of internal dialogue) is very different from seeing something visually on the screen. Plus with people like Spielberg behind it, I'm sure he's gonna trim a lot of the fat and inject a good deal of drama and feels into it.

I'm sure the movie is gonna be good cause of SFX (and Mr. Spielberg), but in truth, I couldn't get past 20 pages or so in the book when I tried to read it a few years ago. Way over hyped, way too many references, I mean I got every single reference but it just reads like a millennial tryhard who WANTS to be a geek rather than someone WHO IS a geek. I have nothing against someone beefing up their nerd cred, but when you try so hard you kind of lose the point. We became geeks because we spent the hours after school playing magic cards, playing those last few minutes of SNES before we had to go to school and the wait until we got home to finish the level, we wrote our passwords and cheat codes on the back of our notebooks or in the back page of the instruction manuals, we stayed up late to watch the horror movies we weren't supposed to or got up early to watch the cartoons people said we were too old to be watching. I'll probably finish the book, but only because I want to compare it to the movie but the article makes a lot of good points and Ender's Game and similar stories have already done the same story. I hate on people who shit on the Big Bang Theory because they claim it's 'shallow nerd humor' and if that's true, then this book is guilty of that but 100x worse.

Armada by Ernest Cline: Follow-up to Ready Player One, reviewed.

Armada by Ernest Cline: Follow-up to Ready Player One, reviewed.


If that sounds familiar to you, that's probably because you've seen the movie The Last Starfighter, which is about a young boy who is so good at video games that he is enlisted to fight aliens. Or perhaps Ender's Game, a story about a young boy who is so good at video games that he is enlisted to fight aliens. In an interview with the Verge,
Cline explained the secret sauce that makes his story different from
the other sci-fi tales that have told similar stories: Yup, it's pop
culture references. “In a zombie apocalypse movie,” he said, “nobody's
ever seen a zombie movie. Or in an alien invasion movie, nobody has ever
seen an alien invasion movie like Independence Day. That's what Armada is — if an alien invasion happened today, we'd be aware of all of that and reference all of this pop culture.”





Indeed, after Zack blasts off to join the Earth Defense Alliance, he
explains how he feels again and again not by telling us, but by
referencing the experiences of main characters from better versions of
this story: “I felt like Luke Skywalker surveying a hangar full of A-,
Y- and X-Wing Fighters just before the Battle of Yavin. Or Captain
Apollo, climbing into the cockpit of his Viper on the Galactica’s
flight deck. Ender Wiggin arriving at Battle School. Or Alex Rogan,
clutching his Star League uniform, staring wide-eyed at a hangar full of
Gunstars.”








Barely a page goes by without a reference to Star Wars, Dungeons & Dragons, Flight of the Navigator, Transformers, Starfox, Space Invaders, Zero Wing, Iron Eagle, Star Trek,
and on and on and on. Geek culture has long been preoccupied with
trivia; the ability to recognize and make references to games, movies,
and TV shows beloved within various “geeky” subcultures is often
considered an in-group badge of honor, a signifier of credibility and
even power. Armada is a book designed entirely around getting the reference—high-fiving
the readers who recognize its shoutouts while leaving everyone else
trapped behind a nerd-culture velvet rope of catchphrases and codes.





Armada often feels like it's being narrated by that one guy in your group of friends who never stops quoting the Simpsons, a
tic that feels increasingly tiresome and off-putting in the face of the
novel’s supposedly apocalyptic stakes. On more than one occasion,
soldiers salute each other en route to world-ending battles by solemnly
swearing that “the Force” will be with them, and one character flies to
his supposedly tragic and moving death while screaming quotes from Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. This is a book that ends with someone unironically quoting Yoda.

For Amusement Only: the life and death of the American arcade | The Verge

For Amusement Only: the life and death of the American arcade | The Verge

Everyone seems to agree on one thing: the arcade is dead, and most
people are okay with that. No one I’ve asked gives me a different
answer. The economics aren’t there any more, the community support never
was, and, of course, gaming companies make a killing in the home —
almost none are even producing cabinets anymore. So it’s not surprising
that everyone nods their head when I ask if the arcade is really
dead. "Can it come back?" "No," they shake their heads. Only one person
gives a different answer, and it’s Nolan Bushnell. "Absolutely, it can
come back," he says, his eyes lighting up. "Creativity will bring
anything back. There’s so much technology out there which can’t be
packaged in the home environment," he adds. He’s animated, and adamant
that our culture has "lost something," in the disappearance of all the
"informal clubhouses" as he calls them, public hangout spots for young
people. Bushnell is in the minority with such a prediction, but if
anyone can bet against such odds and win, it’s probably him.

When does 'Good Witch' season 4 premiere on Hallmark Channel?

While Hallmark has yet to confirm the show’s fate, it seems highly
likely that this Hallmark Channel staple won’t be going anywhere! The Good Witch Season
3 finale ended the season on a high note with 3 million total viewers
and a 2.8 household ratings when Live+3 day viewing was factored in
and the show’s Season 3 average was up sixth and seven percent,
respectively, among viewers and in the demo. In other words, there are
still many more stories to be told in Middleton.
