Ready Player One is a far better film for those who haven't seen the movie, though it is still the sort of engaging you'd expect from Spielberg. Those who are already fans will find a lot missing, not least, apparently, an understanding of why the novel is so good.
Even stacking the deck won't always work, and there's far too little meat involved in The Post, and far too much effort at steering the zeitgeist. What should have been one of the year's best falls flat for a surprising lack of purpose.
The Last Jedi is often fun and great to look at, but you can't think about it and that's a shame. There's too much that's built around the easiest, and most boring, choices.
