So "I Love The 80s - The Movie" just came out with some new movie posters, where they take existing classic movie posters and redo them with RP1 characters. The Internet is not happy.

However, they really are just looking for any reason to hate RP1 itself, as shown by the wild variety of salt.

The posters:

Ready Player One is a pretty shit book to be honest. It's a parade of references to nerdy shit the author likes with a bad self-insert Mary Sue protagonist. That being said, both fans and people who hate the book get really fucking mad about it for no reason. I watch Vinny from Vinesauce, and when he played a game which parodies said book and movie, the chat erupted into a shitstorm over the "true nerds" and "u all haterz". It was pretty bad. I get a feeling both sides are really compensating for something, because they both get offended that their "geek cred" is being challenged :story:

Are people who constantly complain on Twitter ever happy?
Happiness was never part of their psyche to begin with. These people crave on conflict and will create it when they see none. They try but miserably fail at posturing themselves as intellectuals which puts their true intellectual capacity on display. Besides, why does anyone trust movie critics like them to begin with if all they ever do is use their medium as a way to spew ideological bullshit? Oh yeah, they can't develop their own stance on their own.

I thought Daito and Shoto dies shortly after their appearance. Why are they on the poster?

Maybe I have missed the point of the thing, but the previews make it look like fandom itself is a dystopian hellscape?
The entire point of the book is that the future is a dystopian hellscape because of an out-of-control consumerist culture incapable of dealing with the real world, that prefers meaningless feel-good nostalgiabait over anything intellectually or emotionally challenging. It's what might happen if Wil Wheaton and co. become the dominant cultural trend (in fact, Wil Wheaton is one of the administrators of the VR world, and by extension one of the most powerful men on the planet, because people remembered him from Star Trek, basically.) The fact that so many people can read the book and completely miss that astonishes me.

It had an orgy in the sewers in it. Also please learn how to spell.

No they don't. I mean, Daito gets fucking suplexed out of his 50th story window by the Sixers about..... 5? 6? chapters after he's introduced, but Shoto survives all the way through the book.

Ready Player One was okay, maybe even good, but it really is overrated. Parzival being a Gary Stu is.... somewhat debatable, although mostly true. Really, there's thousands of OASIS users just like him - he just had the good fortune to be in the right place at the right time for most of his parts in the book.

While I thought the book was fun if you've read the author's other stuff and seen his interviews it's really not this. The dude just loves wallowing in his nostalgia and wants to invite people to wade in the pool.

Yeah, Ernest Cline honestly isn't smart enough of an author to write a dystopian book about consumerist culture gone awry. Ready Player One is glorified fanfiction where the Howard Hughes character is a blatant authorial self-insert (Cline shares a birth year, hometown, and physical description with Halliday) and the main character wins by performing the literary equivalent of smashing his action figures together and quoting movie lines to himself.

The real dystopian narrative about consumerist culture gone awry is the fact that this book was a) marketed as something for adults to read despite being written at a 6th grade level, and b) that it made it on the New York Times bestseller list.

Come on, it can be both.

Even if the world is just as shitty as it is to enable something like the OASIS to 'replace' the real world, it still manages to BE replacing the real world because that world is shitty and people are diving into it to live something better than reality. Whether Cline wanted that more to justify his nostalgia wallow or truly meant to criticize the real world doesn't change the validity of said criticism by others.

Jesus christ this salt is so much. While the movie was not gonna work because nerd movies don't work out in the media ever beucase of how diverse and autistic the marketing can be. But the hatred is practically unnerving and reminds me on how a group of spoiled brats are mad because their uncle Mike is at the family reunion and he smells a bunch and talks about Trump shit.

I guess this is a good time to let you know the author of this book writes shit poetry like this
You really are giving him more credit than he deserves. Overall RP1 is not something to get mad over but doesn't deserve praise at all. It's just geek garbage like the capeshit movies
