There is a beating heart behind the glossy technical craft here, a real respect for the pop culture that so dictates everything about the film's universe.

At one point it might simply be too much. But that's part of the experience. Like some rides you're left dazed by the end, but you might just want to go back for another round.

It's definitely not the book-and that's good. Unfortunately, however, it's not a great movie either.

If Spielberg had found a way to inject even a bit of the warmth, wonder, and intelligence we associate with some of his best-loved films, this might have been something special.
August 27, 2018
It's basically a Spielberg movie inside an ode to Spielberg movies.

August 27, 2018
It's a win across the board...when Spielberg decides to use a piece of pop culture or nostalgia, he uses it as an integral part of the story.

Ready Player One feels empty when you explore its characters, and tries to have its cake and eat it too with the climactic message, which feels downright incongruous with everything thrown at us during the previous two hours.
August 26, 2018
It's pure entertainment, and gives Spielberg an easel to prop his sentimental painting on, and all the colors on his palette to do so.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

There are so many times that Ready Player One could have wrestled with its nostalgia love or more problematic elements, but instead it's just a movie with no there there.
August 25, 2018
Definitely a film worthy of your quarters.

Ready Player One is literally a gamer's paradise, a dazzling film that never seems to slow down.
August 24, 2018
A fun film that can be enjoyed whether you read the book or not.
August 22, 2018
Creating escapism is what Spielberg is all about, and he nails it with "Ready Player One."

Nerds and gamers are more than simply white men of a certain age, guys. Give us all characters we can enjoy and embrace.

August 21, 2018
Ready Player One is weighed down by so much nostalgia and pop culture references while being devoid of everything else.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
August 14, 2018
For all of the fun that "Ready Player One" thinks it is having, if you look behind the curtain of its stratagems you'll find a ho-hum young adult sci-fi movie.

A stunning piece of popcorn cinema... one big budget blockbuster worth immersing yourself in ASAP.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
August 6, 2018
A juicy wad of bubblegum entertainment, visually antic and immersive without feeling assaultive, fast-paced without feeling rushed.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

The movie is cynical and manipulative because the '80s it exploits means nothing to Spielberg. He uses items from that decade because he noticed that's what kids are into...
July 27, 2018
Ready Player One isn't the Spielberg home run that fans of the book may have hoped it would be, but it's a solid double and a good time that is almost perversely suited for home viewing.
