Episode 30: Ready Player One

Ben Mendelsohn, Simon Pegg, Mark Rylance, Lena Waithe, Win Morisaki, Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, and Philip Zhao in Ready Player One (2018)

This week, the big boys and girl decided to tackle one of the biggest films of 2018 and that is… Ready Player One! And we are joined again by our favorite guest, Paul Bestolarides!

Ready Player One is known for it’s elaborate and well made CGI but does the film itself have any other redeeming elements? The film was directed by Steven Spielberg and we all love him at SPMN, so we were excited to see this film by him! Based on the novel of the same name written by Ernest Cline and the screenplay was also co-written by him too! Did he do it justice?

On this episode, we discussed the spectacle, countless movie references (we even have a long list of references that Michael did, we sped it up for you though, don’t you worry), we even have an argument or two, but what less do you expect?

Did Michael enjoy watching this film on his fourth viewing? Listen in this week to find out!
