Warner Bros. Cinema
35mm + Codex
”People come to the Oasis for all the things they can do, but they stay for all the things they can be”
It's only fitting in the lore of cinema, that the man behind some of the most iconic iconography in history and the godfather of blockbuster entertainment, is the one to perfectly execute a stunning immersive experience of pop culture phenomenon, and even manages to showcase an interesting parallel of social commentary with the prison of entertainment. Spielberg’s Ready Player One is the essence and complete ideal of blockbuster cinema. It’s invigorating, with a beautiful storm of passionate conviction. Set pieces are stunning to behold in such high volume and running at such an excessive and accessible pace. Ready Player One is handcrafted by the ultimate creator of imagination, to be enjoyed and adored by all players, who will be left in complete awe. My advice for Spielberg? Get out now while you can stand tall and firmly behind the next evolutional step of entertainment.
3D: Pretty superb on screen. Impactful, immersive and incredibly stylised with brilliant affect. In-particularly a car chase sequence that will blow your mind.
