He’s Smarter Than Me

For years, Phillip has taken a post-convention day off. This year, I finally followed his example and took yesterday off. It was a good idea.

Yesterday, after relaxing a while, we decided to hop on a bus, go Downtown, and saw Ready Player One in 3D.

Phillip and I both read the book when it first came out, seven years ago. We both loved it. Then, about a week ago, in anticipation of the movie, Phillip read it a second time. I wish I’d followed his lead.

Obviously, yesterday, Phillip remembered the book better than I did.

Ready Player One, the movie, was awesome! I loved it. It wasn’t perfect, but it was beautiful and fun.

I don’t want a movie to be too faithful to the book it was based on. It don’t want a movie to be merely a direct copy of a book. What would be the point in that?

Was Ready Player One, the movie, faithful to the book? I don’t remember the book well enough to say.

I went back to work today, and didn’t forget any of my passwords, even though I had to change a couple of them last Wednesday.

During NorWesCon, something reminded me of Wes Anderson. (Maybe it was a mention of The Isle of Dogs somewhere.) I decided to put three DVDs on hold at the library. I picked up The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou on my way home today. I’ve seen it before, years ago. Moonrise Kingdom is In Transit. I’ve never seen it. I’m in position 16 for 22 copies of The Fantastic Mr. Fox. I’ve never seen it, either.
