Free Guy is an amazing movie that is probably the movie that understands video games more than any other movie I can think of (possible exception of Wreck It Ralph [not the sequel]). It's an extremely fun movie. Laugh out loud very frequently. Very in tune with video game culture. I enjoyed watching the 'perspective' of the movie slowly shift from the regimented nature of the NPC's 'loops' to the chaos of the PC's randomness. (Also the PC's absolute banality.) I loved all the YouTubers in the movie (though I would have loved a fictional Game Theory video from MatPat on Guy's NPC status as well as a 'deep dive' into the Free City lore).

The movie's not 'quite' perfect. But this feels like the video game movie Ready Player One wanted to be.
