RPO is a movie with a tsunami of these moments from about 40 years of film, T.V and gaming. If you're a collector, you may relish trying to catch them all.

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 basically a Spielberg movie inside an ode to Spielberg movies.

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.

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.

A juicy wad of bubblegum entertainment, visually antic and immersive without feeling assaultive, fast-paced without feeling rushed.

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.

A fantastic, mind blowing amalgam of "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory," "Tron," and "The Matrix"...

Not a lot of attention is paid to the troubling implications of living your life in a make-believe space, but the adventure moves fast enough to prevent the viewer from worrying too much about it.

[The film] serves as testament to Spielberg's gift as a pulse-riding, intuitively cinematic entertainer....a film full of grandly staged cyber battles and real-world intrigue. And thankfully it's one of the few long films to warrant its running time.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

the film improves as it goes on, especially in the second half, where Spielberg generates a successful tension in juxtaposing action taking place simultaneously within the real world and the OASIS
