Ready Player One ★★½

Overall, to me it felt jam-packed but often empty. There are moments I liked, often in the real-world, but overall it just felt like something I'd seen before, but better elsewhere. Strong direction (especially during an early chase scene), a good Silvestri theme, and some lovely lighting. It's fine but not something I need to return to or would recommend rushing out to see.

Maybe I'm just tired of movies about cis white guys being the main characters in a "save the world, get the girl" plot? Whatever the reason, it just wasn't for me.
