Not sold at all on this film. In fact, I think it's going to be incredibly annoying to see product placement characters scattered throughout the virtual oasis, like a continual can of coke being set on a table with the label in full view.

Maybe the spectacle of it will allow that to fade into the background, or maybe most people just won't care.

Must-skip for me. Guessing I'm not the target demographic anyway.

The Book was great. I hope the movie is good. I plan on seeing it.

I will go see it, but I'm pretty disappointed in everything I see. It's a mash of pop culture references, but they should be 80's pop culture references and not just any random thing that the studio could license out for cheap or that they already owned.

Instead of a love letter to the 80's, it's just a random collection of pop culture bits. They should have taken the money to license out the real stuff.

It's not random. It's what they could get money in return for inclusion (it's advertising!), and pretty much nobody is paying to advertise products from the 1980s.

Instead of selling film space to new products as ads, they should have PAID to include licensed content from the 80s.

So we will get an ode to corporatism and capitalism. I love capitalism, but I don't need in-my-face reminders of product placements.

I couldn't even finish the first chapter of the book. Based on that alone, I don't really care about this movie, but I'll see it with Movie Pass.

Book was great, this looks like garbage. Eh. I dig the references but the CGI just looks like it was done 10 years ago.

It's supposed to look like a video game. Complaining about how "bad" it looks is missing the point.
