Ready Player one movie review: Holy grail of pop culture celebration
Written by Shubham Dwivedi

Steven Spielberg has arrived with his latest blockbuster as he walks right into the pop culture reference city in this one. For the past decade, Spielberg has been rolling around the realistic film-making zone but he is the director who has made most number of blockbusters in the world. Thrice he has made the highest grossing films in the history of cinema overcoming his own ones. Adapted from the book of same name, this film has referenced everything a nerd wants in a film from Batman to Stanley Kubrick’s ‘The Shining’.

Film has written classic all over it tremendous box office because this one is a food for any film buff around the world. Story of the film is quite simple as this is set in a futuristic world where people can put on a glass and go to the world of their dreams designed by themselves through this portal. Film culture from the 70’s shows up in this one every ten minutes but story takes a twist when people realize that the portal itself is in some kind of danger and it needs to be saved or else this film phenomena which has hooked everyone will be destroyed forever.

Absolutely no director in the world can block a breath taking thrill sequence like Spielberg as he would remind people of all the Jurassic Park screams they had to go through with. He literally puts you on the edge of the seat for a two and a half hour panic attack which is shot at it’s finest. It took them $150 million just to make this film making it Spielberg’s most expensive film in a decade but it will recover a lot more than most while going down in the book of classic blockbusters. One should definitely walk into a cinema theater to enjoy this festival of a film.
