    I always heard all these good things about the book, then saw the plot of the movie, then the summery of the book and its just not good at all.

    I felt the same thing about the book Redshirts, which came out around the same time, which didn't deserve the praise it got either

    The martian was probably the one book that is great as it is, and the movie took a different but equally great take

    Ernest Cline actually owns a DeLorean or two.

    I thought the "Movie" was just a nod to gamer culture and recognition our existence. Much of the world still don't take gamers seriously. Compare this to a world where being good at sports is something to proud of. Acknowledgement is what it felt like.

    They changed so much in the movie from the books. In the books he goes into hiding and buys this insane gaming rig and gets himself into shape. He doesnt even see Artemis in real life until the whole fight is done partly because she has an ugly af scar but in the movies they casually meet up halfway through the movie

    I actually strongly related to wade (except for his views on his avatar) XD I just didn't really like the movie because it could've been so much more epic if they just did what the book did (especially for the final fight) you've got some great points though.

    I didnt know war games was mo ty python. Also the film pauses and queues the player so it can vary in length due to the player. Sorry for nitpicking love the videos

    Remember when Marvel switched the X-men allegory from racism to homophobia, so they had to kill off all the weird looking ones? Best twist ever.

    I remember a movie back in the day, called detroit rock city, where it portrayed the heavy metal, precursor punk crowd as anti stella, anti disco, mostly because that world shunned those "outcasts" as a typical hierarchy does. Now im listening to a guy bash the know it all nerds cliche reviewing a nerd movie. I rather like nerds, i dedicated a portion of my life to their interests. Lol
    Carry on cycle thought.

    you know what I originally thought about all this stuff but my girlfriend really liked it and introduced it to me so I had to go you know what I'm going to overlook everything

    The book sucks even more.Did you know?

    Being a user of 3D chat programs that require avatars and I can tell you that it’s very common to find people just using copyrighted characters as their avatars. And no it’s not VR chat, it’s something much older

    YES OMFG THANK YOU I hated this movie so much and my bf loves it and I'm so excited to make him watch this video since I introduced him to your channel

    This book/movie could've been an amazing story on late stage capitalism…
