Ready Player One ★★★

One of the few examples of an adaptation having more depth than the source material, Spielberg is still a little too enamored of the (gorgeously rendered) digital sci-fi setting to truly sell the cautionary message. The director does, thanks to a strong cast, manage to find a heart underneath the enormous action and “fuck yeah!” fanboy moments. Which are, it must be said, a lot of fun, especially the horror homages.
