Plot
Where to start? Well, Steven Spielberg directed this masterpiece, so it goes without saying that the cinematography is spotless. But it’s better than that. Nothing, here, is random. In fact, this movie is perfect in every way. Every crucial element of the story is carefully planted early on. You’ll have to watch this repeatedly to catch all the Easter eggs and references.
Batman, Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, Chucky, King Kong, Beetlejuice, Goro, the Chestburster, Michael Jackson and MechaGodzilla make small appearances. Superman, Marty McFly, Bill & Ted, Ferris Bueller and Buckaroo Banzai are mentioned. The Terminator, Steve Jobs, Robert Zemeckis and John Hugues are also referenced, but The Shining gets the best homage. Wait for it!
This is the ultimate pop culture test! Tense, exciting, touching and sometimes scary, Ready Player One gets to our heart one way or another. There’s even a romantic story somehow blooming despite all the action and violence. This is a tight script. It’s one thing after another. Prepare for a long movie that doesn’t drag at all and barely lets you breathe. This is one of the best films ever made.
