Ready Player One

Ready Player One ★★★★½

A fourth viewing, first on the Blu-Ray and outside of the cinema.

For my money this is one of the best blockbusters of 2018 (Placed third, only behind Black Panther and Mission Impossible: Fallout) and it delivers pure entertainment value from start to finish. The nostalgia works in the film's favour with a spectacular set-piece centred around The Shining, best watched with people who haven't seen Kubrick's classic. It's a fantastic roller-coaster of a ride from start to finish, and I love watching films with people who aren't too keen on watching something like this only to have their mind fully changed by the end as they become completely invested in it.
