Ready Player One

Ready Player One ★★★★

This is a weak 4 star film. If there was an in-between of 3.5 and 4 this would be in that. So 3.75 star film.

Instantly when that first race started, I got this exhilarating feeling. There's no other way to describe it. I felt it when I watched War of the Worlds, Jurassic Park, and Raiders of the Lost Ark to name a few. It's Spielberg smashing those scenes out of the park. It's where he just has your full attention, brain, eyes and all other bodily functions in his wheelhouse. I have to commend the original property too. The book, which I haven't read, is a great concept. If you don't like annoying nostalgia moments, then don't watch this. This is filled to the brim with those. They aren't annoying to me, just unnecessary.

Characters are weak though. Just all around; this doesn't even live up to those previous films I mentioned. All the nostalgia porn and weak characters make some moments just not as gold or on the level of the action scenes.
