Based on the novel by Ernest Cline, Ready Player One follows the story of Wade Watts. It is set in 2045, with the world on the brink of chaos and collapse. When James Halliday, creator of the Virtual Reality world called the OASIS dies, he leaves behind an Easter Egg for only one of the players to win, but with billions of dollars and control of the OASIS on the line if they find it, the search for the egg quickly turns into a war.

#ReadyPlayerOne is classic Steven Spielberg. It’s got the references, the ferocious effects and the great ‘80s soundtrack, sure, but also the charm, the heart, the humor and a fantastic Alan Silvestri score. I loved it & so did this #SXSW crowd. Be excited for it! pic.twitter.com/xwPOGwXDxd

READY PLAYER ONE feels like Spielberg watched a ton of Luc Besson movies and decided to outdo them. In terms of pure spectacle, it’s the most astonishing thing he’s done. Never underestimate Steve. #SXSW

#ReadyPlayerOne hot take review: a fun, enjoyable film with some amazing set pieces and references (THAT scene). However, the film suffers from a script that has a LOT of convenient plot devices and never really manages to make you care about the characters… 7/10 #sxsw
