ready player one spoiler review

(In our Spoiler Reviews, we take a deep dive into a new release and get to the heart of what makes it tick…and every story point is up for discussion. In this entry: Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One.)

Steven Spielberg has spent nearly his entire career proving his critics wrong. When the filmmaker rose to prominence as a blockbuster wunderkind, there was a prevailing sense among critics that Spielberg was little more than a purveyor of harmless, artless pop – not a serious filmmaker. “If there is such a thing as a movie sense — and I think there is, Spielberg really has it,” critic Pauline Kael said. “But he may be so full of it that he doesn’t have much else.” Yet Spielberg did have much else, and he proved it time after time, crafting a lifetime worth of fantastic, heartfelt, downright magical films.

Until now.

It’s taken nearly 44 years, but with Ready Player One, Spielberg has finally proven his critics right. Here, on the heels of The Post – a wonderful, important film that had the 71-year-old filmmaker still firing on all cylinders – Spielberg offers up a muddled, downright hideous catastrophe. It’s official – Ready Player One is Steven Spielberg’s worst film.

Ready Player One premiered at the 2018 South by Southwest Festival to heavy anticipation. Would it be as tacky as the marketing made it appear or would director Steven Spielberg live up to his legendary reputation?

Ready Player One - Olivia Cooke as Art3mis

Warner Bros. Pictures brought quite the show to San Diego Comic-Con last month. Along with the expected pomp and circumstance for Justice League, the studio also debuted the first teaser trailer for Ready Player One, the adaptation of Ernest Cline’s popular, nostalgic sci-fi adventure novel that’s being directed by none other than Steven Spielberg. It blew the roof off, even if it didn’t entirely explain what the movie would be about for those who hadn’t ready the book.

The good news is Ready Player One doesn’t hit theaters until March of 2018, so there’s plenty of time for general audiences to find out what this story is about. Until then, a new Ready Player One photo has revealed a character who we didn’t see in the teaser trailer, but is an integral part of the story. Check it out below. Read More »
