I saw Ready Player One today…
I really wasn’t expecting to like it… And didn’t even plan to see it.
But I’m glad I did.
The previews did not do this movie justice.
Ready Player One had everything you would want in a sci-fi, futuristic movie that’s also part superhero story:
- Characters you actually cared about
- Ranges of emotion and human empathy that even was conveyed by the CGI characters
- A great story
- Awesome special effects
- A great beginning, middle and ending
- The right length
- Nice love story angle
Ready Player One was like Star Wars meets Lord of the Rings meets Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory.
This is Spielberg’s best movie in a LONG time.
I haven’t read the book, but I’ve heard the book is terrific too.
