ready-player-one-pic1

Ready Player One is cotton candy, but it’s really good cotton candy. Based on Ernest Cline‘s 2011 book of the same name, the latest film from director Steven Spielberg takes us to the near future where life in the real world pales in comparison to the virtual reality of the OASIS where some go to play, some go to hide, and nearly all go to in order to avoid real life. Think of the OASIS as a virtual smorgasbord mashup of MMOs like World of Warcraft on steroids, mixed with every nostalgic 80s icon which can fit on a screen (and the film could get the rights for).

legends-of-tomorrow-i-ava

The latest episode gets its title from the storyline of Gary (Adam Tsekhman) showing up looking for his missing boss and traveling with Sara (Caity Lotz) and Ray (Brandon Routh) to a forbidden time period where they learn something quite unexpected about Ava (Jes Macallan). Discovering the locked time period includes hundreds of Ava clones, Ava (who follows the group) turns out to be just as baffled by events as the Legends. With clones, actors hired to play Ava’s parents, and single year that doesn’t seem to make much sense blacklisted to all time travelers (did people the very next year simply forget?), there’s plenty of craziness going on. While I don’t doubt there is (at least some) reasoning for all this, the episode raises several questions about why Ava was plucked out the this time period, given fake memories and a fake family, and just why she is needed at the Time Bureau.

krypton-pilot-pic1

Created by David Goyer, the SyFy’s new Superman-inspired TV-series cobbles together a version of Krypton from various sources (unfortunately Goyer’s Man of Steel being one of them), to offer a look at the civilization that gave birth to the Man of Steel. Set during the lifetime of Superman’s grandfather, the “Pilot” introduces us to Seg (Cameron Cuffe) whose family is disgraced in the show’s opening scene, ending the House of El. Heroics 14 years later allow for the possibility of Seg regaining honor with another house, although a time-traveler named Adam Strange (Shaun Sipos) has other plans for the rebellious street rat who must fulfill his destiny to continue the El line.
