    Sometimes I think about digging back into the book threads of this forum's past in order to find all of the people here who read the book and enjoyed it at the time

    I think I might have a...well, I don't think I ever gave it a super positive review, but I don't think I hated it immediately. It's a weird thing where when it first hit, people, including myself, seem to gloss over a lot of its worst elements and when they get brought up now, there's this "what the fuck, has that been there the whole time?" reaction.

    This is pretty much the reason I haven't actually done this. I know there were people around here who had reactions from actually it's fine to enjoyable trash, but I'm pretty certain nobody ended up earnestly defending any of the legitimately shitty parts of the book.

    I think I may have initially said, "eh it's a YA book and better written than most YA books," but then other stuff was pointed out to me and now I'm like okay yeah.

    I'm certain Spielberg brought a ton of technical craft to this, and he does have a knack for finding humanity in his movies, but I'm not sure that's enough to overcome the core issues I have with the source material. It's something I want to see once it hits cable or Netflix or whatever, but I think I'll skip it in theaters

    A lot of reviews treated the book as a fluffy wish fulfillment fantasy novel and reviewed it as such from what I remember.

    Fluffy wish fulfillment fantasy becomes very problematic when the wish fulfillment character is sexist, transphobic, etc.

    I read the plot summary on Wikipedia and the movie just barely follows the book's plot, which is probably for the best.

    Having seen it in an early showing, I'll spoiler my thoughts:
    I went into the movie with something of an unfavorable opinion - I enjoyed parts of the books but recognized that there were a lot of problematic elements and mediocre writing. I came out of the movie relatively impressed, as I felt it was an enjoyable popcorn flick. The special effects are well done, even if the real world of the characters (as opposed to the Oasis) is not really fleshed out well. But the concepts and ideas of the Oasis are expressed very well.

    There's still odd choices/a rapidly accelerated relationship between Wade and Samantha in their IRL life, but a lot of generic problematic stuff is removed or toned way the heck down. The character comes off as nerdy and a bit obsessed, but not in an obnoxious "list everything" way. The movie definitely trades heavily on nostalgia and references, but it's all kind of fun, too. The villains are a bit cartoonish - even when they're not literal cartoons in the Oasis - but you can see a motivation.

    There's changes to key events from the book, but they make sense and I think make the movie flow better. There's also a very well done bit in the middle of the movie where their Oasis characters go into a classic film - with the style of the film intact and the characters showing up as outliers.

    I'll fully admit I'm relatively easy to please as a filmgoer, so my review should be taken with grains of salt, but it's worth seeing if you enjoyed the book at all.

    I'm sure it's probably a fine movie when you take it out of the societal framing of movements like gamer gate. Spielberg probably did a very good job with the material.
    I don't watch movies much anymore, though, so *shrug*

    A few weeks ago, a coworker asked me if I had read the book. I said no, and that I had no interest in doing so, to which she said that it would be a book that I would like.

    I was sorely tempted to explain all the little and big ways the book is horrible, to point out why I wasnt interested.

    At least there isn't PED weed in it.

    I can know the ending of Far Cry 5 is awful without having played the game at all. The only thing that playing it might help is if the rest of the game had important context that was left out.

    This is the good ending to Far Cry 5, though I'd refrain from giving it such a positive descriptor. When you travel to the Project at Eden's Gate compound after defeating the three Seed siblings, you'll have to head to the same church from the beginning of the game to attempt to arrest Joseph Seed. After a long monologue, he'll give you the same choice he gave you when Far Cry 5 started, resist or walk away.

    If you choose to resist, prepare yourself for an intense fight. Every one of your allies you met throughout the game will be high on Bliss and will turn on you. The objective here is to knock them down then revive them. Once they're revived, they'll once again become your ally and turn their guns on Seed.

    Your former buddies will spawn in waves, and eventually, you'll knock down and revive 12 of them. After that, you have to fight Joseph Seed himself. Without the backup from your brainwashed friends, he's not too hard to take down, and even if he manages to kill you one of your 12 allies will revive you.

    Once Seed goes down, you and your friends encircle him. Sheriff Whitehorse will arrest Seed, but as he does a bright flash of light will blind you momentarily. When you regain your vision, you'll see the telltale mushroom cloud of a nuclear blast in the distant mountains. As the shockwave approaches, the Sheriff, the two Deputies, and yourself rush to a nearby truck and attempt to head to Dutch's bunker.

    As you rush towards the bunker, more nuclear blasts occur, and Hope County turns into a hellscape. You manage to dodge falling trees and exploding cars long enough to make it almost all the way to the bunker, but after being momentarily distracted by another nuclear blast, a burning tree lands on the truck and knocks you out.

    When you come to, you see that Joseph Seed has dragged you into Dutch's bunker and killed Dutch. You're handcuffed to a nearby object and unable to resist Seed. Instead of killing you though, he raves about how he was right. He says he should kill you for what you've done, but instead, he makes you his "son," and claims you as his new flock. He then leans back in his chair and gives you a creepy stare as the screen fades to black.

    A few weeks ago, a coworker asked me if I had read the book. I said no, and that I had no interest in doing so, to which she said that it would be a book that I would like.

    I was sorely tempted to explain all the little and big ways the book is horrible, to point out why I wasnt interested.

    At least there isn't PED weed in it.

    Wouldn't it be weird to point out how bad it is without reading it?

    Not gonna lie but if someone showed my the excerpts with the sexism, transphobia and other gross shit I’d write the book off immediately and tell anyone who asked just that

    Instead I read it ages ago, thought it was fun if bland and kinda shitty to its supporting characters and forgot it existed til the film got green lit
