Tiago Cardoso’s review published on Letterboxd:
Do we want to exist in reality, or do we want to exist in an escapist universe?
Anybody who is connected, at all, with the movie industry/pop culture will love this whiplash effect of going from social reality to total escapist entertainment. Ready Player One is jam-packed with references to the pop culture of yesteryear. Spielberg pirates our mind, to get to our heart sucking every movie industry/pop culture you have in your brain and put it into a movie with endless layers of homages and making a cautionary tale about leaving us the choice of where we want to exist. We basically live in nostalgia.
