I saw this in theaters and I own it on DVD.

This is a pretty good movie. An apparent nerdgasm of references and experience. That is a great point of the movie... while simultaneously being it's biggest problem. Yeah it's fun seeing all the nice little references and geek culture scatted everywhere, but it does that too much. So much to the point that it seems to sacrifice on other elements of the story and character development for it.
It's a bit of an overload, while at the same time I love it.
It is missing a lot though, like Nintendo characters and more. But the things they did get in there are great.
My favorite by far is the Gundam vs Mega Godzilla battle... damn that was freaking awesome. That alone was worth the price of admission.

The story is good, the characters okay, the ideas interesting. But I feel in the end... he wound up with the wrong girl. I think he should have gotten with Helen. So shoot me I got a weakness for black girls. But also they had much better chemistry than Wade and Artemis. And they knew each other for so long. Even stated they can finish each other's sentences. I even got a bit of a feeling that Helen was jealous at times. I think But enough about that.

Good movie. Not overly great, but good. Some epic moments, underwhelming characters, wrong love interest in the end. But good. Just that often times the movie feels more like it's trying to just say "Ooh hey, look at me! I'm nerdy look at these characters, you recognize this?" than actually trying to tell the story.

Mistake Status: Current movie project, searching extensively.

Continuity mistake: When King Kong leaps off the Empire State building to smash an IOI car, the positions of the planes circling the building change between shots, most notably the one closest to the race gets a higher altitude. (00:14:55)

Halliday: Why can't we go backwards... for once? Backwards, really fast. Fast as we can. Heh heh. Really put the pedal to the metal, you know? Bill and Ted did it. (00:25:10)

Trivia: In the video that Halliday left behind after his death, you see floral arrangements around his coffin that are in the shape of the Star Trek's Federation symbol and one of the Enterprise. But the really cool thing is his coffin is actually a photon torpedo, exactly like Spock was put in after his death at the end of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. Complete with the blue Federation flag draped over the end of it. (00:08:05)
