Are meta, self-referential or recursive science-fiction films doomed?


Re: Ready Player One

I felt the same. I related very closely to the book having played many of the games and seen the movies as someone born in the 70s. The film has very few of those references in it and the whole storyline is only the same insofar as they are looking for something to prevent the bad guys getting it - the journey on how they get there is so different from the book.

I think taken on its own merit, it's a fairly fun film with good special effects and had I not read the book, I would have really liked it. As it was, I enjoyed it, but am now listening to the audiobook version again!
