    The world is ravaged and literally almost unliveable,everyone is on a virtual reality system for entertainment,killing time..its literally where they live.There is a rival company who is competing with this entertainment system which has taken over the world,now the originals creator has died and left some treasures in the game..whomsoever discovers it inherits the empire and the battle as well as the race is on.Jump into it mate if you get a chance.

    Read the book of Ready Player One,liked it. And I love most of Spielberg's movies apart from one or two but RPO the movie is an unmitigated mess.

    imho

    Each to their own though.

    Kingdom of Heaven, Ridley Scott film, lush cinematography, acting but historically bollocks. Still enjoyed it though.

    I know they can't stick rigidly to the book but huge chunks were missing, parts more interesting than what was actually put in. The casting was woeful, mostly all very wooden and the effects are just lazy.

    Maybe if I had seen it without reading the book I would have liked it more but I doubt it, I think Spielberg is showing us the law of diminishing returns.
