Ready Player One

Ready Player One ★★★½

It is nice to see Spielberg back behind the camera doing "fun" movies, and his direction is so apparent in Ready Player One. You will notice quite a few calling cards. And Back to the Future gets more love than ever. It's like a love letter to Robert Zemeckis.

One particular sequence tickled my nostalgic horror funny bone especially (and we won't spoil that) and was my favorite portion of the film.

My only issue with RPO is that the nostalgia can get in the way of the story a bit. I found myself looking for Easter eggs more than paying attention to the story, which isn't always a good thing.

Definitely some fun entertainment for a Saturday afternoon, but this won't go to the top of my Spielberg watch pile.
