Ready Player One

Ready Player One ★★★★½

After watching this film twice I can say that some of the pacing issues do become a bit more noticeable but it doesn't take away from the fact that this is one of the most straight up, no nonsense fun I've had with a film in quite a while. As a lover of films (obviously), video games and just pop culture in general, I feel that this movie was made for people like me. Aside from the pure fun and movie references (the shinning sequence is pure insanity) RPO actually has a lot of important messages and a genuine heart beating at its core. I really like this film.
