Best Buy Steelbook
In the year 2045, people can escape their harsh reality in the OASIS, an immersive virtual world where you can go anywhere, do anything, be anyone-the only limits are your own imagination. OASIS creator James Halliday left his immense fortune and control of the Oasis to the winner of a contest designed to find a worthy heir. When unlikely hero Wade Watts conquers the first challenge of the reality-bending treasure hunt, he and his friends-known as the High Five-are hurled into a fantastical universe of discovery and danger to save the OASIS and their world. – Warner Brothers Pictures
Spielberg is back, baby! I guess he really never went anywhere but Ready Player One is a decent flick. It’s no Jurassic Park or Jaws but it’s a solid 140 minutes. Say what you want about the book but it’s really not bad, it’s way too focused on blatant references to pop culture but it’s fun story. Spielberg does the easter eggs way better. He changed up the story and it was probably for the better, some of the story elements wouldn’t transfer well from text to screen. Visually this movie is a marvel and it should be seen just for that.
