Ready Player One is a bit like catnip laced cocaine sprinkled atop crack filled Girl Scout Cookies. You probably can't live on it. It may even kill you. But it will be worth it.

Ready Player One isn't a transcendent piece of cinema. That's OK. It IS a well-made piece of popcorn entertainment that also manages to be an odd ouroboros of layered Spielbergian nostalgia-ception.

It's a movie with a storytelling approach that feels as old and cliched as some of the inspirations it's trying to evoke.

Dishes out a liberal serving of memberberries piled-high atop a generic, hollow bowl.

An old-fashioned, though state-of-the-art, frolic ... Viewers need not be cut-throat Trivial Pursuit players to know Blondie from Buckaroo Banzai, though it wouldn't hurt.

The story is fairly conventional ... the cast is only mostly successful ... but the relevance of it all and complete sense of wonder ... make it a trip worth taking ...

Ready Player One, despite its pedigreed director, amiable cast, and eye-popping visuals, mistakes tired references and slick action sequences for personality

The dazzling visual flurry on screen is both amazing and emotionally draining, often to the point of excess.... Ready Player One elevates itself beyond genre fodder.

Far from perfect but almost obnoxiously entertaining.

A once-great filmmaker has taken on a new avatar less heroic than Parzival. It is the avatar of a pandering crowd-pleaser.
