Steven Spielberg delivers the ultimate expression of why we digest media, and possibly a glimpse into a world we could all be heading towards.

With Ready Player One, you can feel director Steven Spielberg pushing to reclaim his status as Hollywood's crowned head of spectacle as he pours his considerable talent into another memorable science-fiction fantasy.

What Ready Player One does through its story is never quite as interesting as what it means, but its a Spielberg science-fiction pop culture souffle...

A heckin fun movie, full of stunning action sequences and laughs and winks at the kids who grew up watching Back to the Future and Jurassic Park and E.T. and Indiana Jones.

Steven Spielberg has basically made the best possible version of this material with the serviceable-at-best script he was given.

If you go to the movies to watch big blockbusters with big explosions and effects, or to just have an enjoyable time with family and friends, then this is the movie for you.

The setting of the film allows for some truly spectacular action set pieces and these are the strongest parts of the film

It's a film to watch and enjoy once, but probably not to return to again and again, like Spielberg's best. It's fixated on easter eggs and it's like an easter egg itself: shiny and pretty, inducing a brief sugar high, but ultimately hollow.

Pure escapism that begs the question, Will there ever be a video game movie that really works?

While the video game preoccupation is adequately and thoroughly visualized, the real world has plenty of missing details.

A kid at heart until his end, Spielberg's renegade sensibilities turns Ready Player One into a true treasure.

The film asks the viewer to find their purpose in life, like Wade has, so there isn't always this instant urge to run off to a different reality as found in video games, movies, or television.

While Ready Player One is an entertaining thrill ride, its storytelling still feels rather empty.

Most filmmakers fail miserably when trying to meld together both real and fantasy worlds, yet this is truly where Spielberg reminds us of his extraordinary talent.

Even the most hardened of cynics can appreciate the take-away message: it's important to live in reality because it's the only thing that's real and the only place you can get a decent meal.

The character development and emotional stakes may be undercooked, but it's such a thrill to watch a filmmaker of Spielberg's pedigree unrestrained and having fun.

Ready Player One has found a way to bring a difficult-to-accurately-adapt book to the big screen in a way that fashions it into something new and exciting on its own.

It's a film that, in addition to being prophetic, is very entertaining, but, above all, it reminds me of those movies and video games that have allowed me to daydream to travel to other realities. [Full review in Spanish]

The film is overkill, it's in your face, and it's sensory overload; but it's also a great deal of fun.

If escapism is what you're looking for in a popcorn movie, then Ready Player One is worth the price of admission.
