davidcware’s review published on Letterboxd:
READY PLAYER ONE is a magical, nostalgic, futuristic adventure of a film. This film is the dream of gamers everywhere. All of the Easter eggs and cameos of different characters and objects from video games brought a nostalgic feel. This nostalgic feel brings all pop culture geeks to their childhood dreams.
In a technology advanced world , there is a theme of taking time to enjoy the real world. The Oasis is a place where you can escape and be whoever you want to be but the driving theme is to not miss out on reality "because it's real."
