julian singer’s review published on Letterboxd:
This is definitely Spielberg’s best in years. Spielberg once said that he approaches each movie he makes as a different director, and with RP1, he very much shows this. Though, it was still very much his own, and WOW was it great!
Tye Sheridan does a really fantastic job in his role. So does everyone else, however, OLIVIA COOKE WAS JUST WOW. She was fantastic! She gave so much enthusiasm and was incredibly likeable, and she NEEDS to work with Spielberg again.
It’s beautifully shot, and really well color graded. The original score was REALLY good too. Alan Silvestri is seriously a beast.
Weirdly enough, my only complaint is the title itself. I know that’s not really a thing to complain about, it’s just an awful title. But overall, Ready Player One was really good. Spielberg is absolutely brilliant.
