“Free Guy,” March 20, 2022 (2021), DVD. With so many meaningful films out there, why did I watch this one about a video game character who comes to consciousness? Because 1) I could; 2) I like Ryan Reynold’s work; and 3) I like to share the best films with Bronwen. But mostly because I could. It’s mostly fun, silly, and sentimental, and as a complete non-gamer, was about a culture more alien to me than the Free City inhabited by Reynold’s character Guy in the Blue Shirt, an NPC (look it up, I had to). His evolution reflects his upbringing, I mean programming, but it’s fun to watch. I needed something fun to watch while B was down in paradise at a yoga retreat in Mexico and I was following what’s happening in the world. I also read and enjoyed Cloud Cuckoo Land.
