Plot Outline:

In the not-too-distant future the world has become stagnated and the "missing millions" generation finds release in a massive VR MMO called "The Oasis". When the billionaire founder of the game dies, it starts an in-game Easter Egg hunt, steeped in 80s pop culture, with the prize being his entire fortune and the future of Oasis itself. Young outcast Wade Watts finds himself in the center of the hunt, and with corporate-backed zealots willing to do anything for the prize, Watts will have to put everything on the line to win - and maybe change the real world for the better. -- Chris Kavan

I loved Ready Player One! Steven Spielberg's dazzling and entertaining trip to the past and the future is one of the best popcorn films I've seen in years. It's a thrilling, visually breathtaking roller coaster ride with colorful characters, a wonderful and engaging story and a truthful message at the center of it all. It's a world built and fleshed out beautifully by Spielberg, and by the end you'll wish you were able to be part of the fun. This is, in my opinion, Spielberg's best film in over a decade.

This is no ordinary sci-fi movie. It has the humor that all successful action flicks out there, and a clear message all melodramas had. I enjoyed this film not because of the graphics and the whole idea of a virtual reality. I enjoyed it because of all the pop culture I can relate to were introduced not in a cheap or mocking way. The irony is, it is a movie marketed and appeared to be appealing to the younger generation who may not have a single idea of all, or at least most, of the references.

Clumsy writing, an excess of pointless exposition, and a distractingly overpacked visual field made me yearn for the simpler, more elegant pleasures of the original Tron.

No need to say I was thrilled.

James Halliday saw the future.
And then he built it.
He gave us a place to go.
A place called … THE OASIS.

Recently I got a Playstation VR set for my birthday and since then I’ve spent a lot of hours in different virtual worlds. So I understand very well that in films such as Ready Player One the population spends more time in this artificial environment than in the actual world. As one already suggested at the beginning, this virtual fantasy world is alluring because there’s so much to experience. But also because you can be so much. Just like in “2047: Virtual Revolution“, it seems as if all of humanity has lost its contact with reality and is wasting their entire fortune on digital upgrades and gadgets and spend all their free time walking around in futuristic-looking VR glasses....

Ready Player One is set and good to go!

Steven Spielberg pays homage to a genre he helped to create in this rollicking and visually dazzling blockbuster adventure.
In the near future, a disillusioned human populace retreats to an infinite virtual reality called the OASIS. Inside this digital world, people use their unique avatars to hunt for clues to a huge fortune left by the deceased inventor of OASIS. One of these players is Wade Watts aka Parsifal (Tye Sheridan) who teams up with a motley crew of gamers in a race against an unscrupulous industrialist (Ben Mendelsohn) for the prize of winning the game and beating OASIS.
The technical details are stunning. The mo-cap for the characters look very good. Tye Sheridan has the look of a distaff Miles Teller but he's a solid young leading man. While he does fine, he is a bit bl...

Ready Player One is Nerd-vana Come True

I knew after reading Ernest Cline's novel, that this love-letter to 80s pop culture was going to be headed to the big screen. What better choice, then, for director than an 80s icon himself, Steven Spielberg. While both the book and film have their issues, Spielberg puts his own spin on things, expanding the story and references and delivering a film worthy of watching again and again - if only because you'll never find everything the first time around.

Ready Player One takes place in the near future where humanity has stagnated with the escape people are looking for in a massive virtual reality playground known as the Oasis. Created by James Halliday (Mark Rylance), a mixture of Willy Wonka and Steve Jobs and his partner Ogden Marrow (Simon Pegg - in essentially a cameo role), Hallida...
