I saw the movie and I heard a review or criticism of the movie that might be true that this a movie for 80's male nostalgia nerds. That it was a fan boy service for men. and it didn't show a female perspective for women of what they thought was cool in the 80's. I thought the female character latched on to what all the other guys were being and doing in the movie.

Most of their contracts are up.

So it just may not be his character that dies.

New actors all around.

I hate cliff hangers.

I'm currently reading the book, and so far, it' very interesting.

Something tells me it is actually FAR more prophetic than people realize. I personally think that the world setting, importance of the OASIS, (or something like it), etc. is going to be our actual reality in a few decades.

Mark my words here, on this forum, in 2018, that in the not so distant future, physical schools will be a thing of the past. Our kids will go to school in virtual schools, on virtual planets, never physically leaving their home for it. We'll go to work in a virtual workspace. We'll shop for clothes, food, etc. in virtual stores, and have little to no need for real cars, planes, etc.

The author really nailed a lot of things right on the head, but perhaps STILL missed just how important and widespread the use of this tech would actually be in our world.

Our reality will change. And while we will be virtual prisoners in our own homes, we'll have a virtual universe to explore and it will be just as real as what we call reality today, so we really won't care all that much.

I think that the film missed a massice message from the book, that of the ourney.
In the book the young lad immersed himself in 80s culture as an antidote to what was around him, he sort of shared in the joy of the guy who made the comp. That was something I took from the book, hugely. but then, I am a child of the 80s so could relate to so much of what was written.
The film, well, it sort of gave a cliff's notes version of the book.
Good films expand on the understanding, this one didn't.
Go read Jaws, then watch the film to see how it should be done.
