Ready Player One Review

Ready Player One Movie was great, 3 out of 5 stars. Lots of fun and full of pop culture references. It's a fun ride and dazzling--make sure you see it on the big screen. The bad guy comes off as a little goofy, and the challenges aren't as difficult as in the book, so not sure how book readers will feel about it. Almost feels like a whole different animal.

Of course, it did my heart good to see all the BTTF references--heck, the main character drives a souped up Delorean. Plus the soundtrack's by Alan Silvestri, who also did BTTF and Avengers. I told my wife Samantha she has to go see it with me so I can gauge how it plays with folks who didn't read the book and aren't completely obsessed with '80s pop culture. Best part? The Shining...
