Are You Screening Podcast – Ready Player One Review – Win The Blu-Ray

Ready Player One, despite any flaws, was a magical ride and a somewhat surprising effort, especially for Steven Spielberg. Largely unfilmable, the movie opted to abandon many of the most unfilmable moments, and while that may irritate fans of the already classic novel, no one was going to watch a game of D&D.

We were psyched for this one, both being fans of the book to one degree or another, and there is something about the spectacle that manages to win out. That said, it’s a film with a lot of problems, and while you can’t give fans of the source material everything they want, you do sort of expect a story that manages to deliver on the ultimate point of telling it in the first place.

Still, as a wild ride with an often mesmerizing display of its virtual world, Ready Player One delivers the entertainment most people who could be convinced to show up are looking for.

Tune in below and we’ll let you know all the ins and outs of what there is to love, how disappointed fans of the book will or won’t be, and where things go right and wrong.

You’ll also get your chance to win a copy Ready Player One on Blu-Ray when it hits!
