    Can't say I've seen many movies on the social media theme. Although the virtual world in Ready Player One was called a game, I liked that it resembled more of a social virtual world like Second Life. One RYM reviewer suggested watching the VRchat was a mistake video to see a more realistic virtual world, haha. But I reckon Ready Player One's recycled pop culture lands it in the ballpark of what that shit will look like in the future.

    Ingrid Goes West was fun in a very vapid kind of way. Definitely not great though by any means, could have been way better if it was treated more darkly.

    personal shopper (eligible for the 2016 list) uses a text conversation to drive a crucial horror/suspense scene, not sure if that counts though.

    actually a more fitting 2016 movie would be nerve. less fb/twitter/insta than a version of twitch i suppose, but it’s more interesting and modern than it was given credit for IMO

    Veering into a particular form of social media, I thought Netflix's Cam (2018) was pretty good. Granted it's social media for pervs, but the premise was cool.

    Good call. RP1 isnt a great movie but the premise of trading real life for a virtual world was mostly well handled.

    This one had a very similar premise to the Black Mirror ep but BM did it way better.

    Read a fairly good review of this from someone who's opinion I generally trust. Wasn't even watching in full screen and the Blue Screen of Death moment damn near gave me PTSD.

    First Herman Yau film I've seen since Ebola Syndrome. Good to know he's still clinically insane.
