At this point, I’m ready to call it... I don’t think I like Charlie Kaufman’s films. While a deeper look at Synecdoche, New York certainly reveals insightful and mindblowing revelations, the surface level provides little in the way of entertainment. I need both.
Really fun and suprisingly very funny. Ready Player One captures the Spielberg wonder, yet not without some stumbles. The first 15 minutes are almost all voice-over exposition which definitely could’ve been done another way, but once you get past that the film really finds its groove. The live-action bits are perhaps where the film shines the brightest. And the cast has tons of chemistry both in and out of the game.
For those worried about it simply being a nostalgia…
