    Ready Player One is a novel that gained wide success riding the wave of 80s nostalgia and the modern nerd culture. You've either heard of it or you haven't, and the less I talk about it the better. It's pretty popular so they made a movie based on it.

    Trailer is out. Let's play "spot the reference":



    Anyway, it's directed by Steven Spielberg, and it is conceivable that it might not suck.

    Thoughts?

    I am betting my 2018 it will be gooood.
    Even if they didn't go with this weird idea to use magic leap.

    I expect it to be very entertaining, a pleasure to watch.

    That looks pretty good, I'll have to watch it.
    I've heard of the book, but beyond being game related I had no idea what it was about.

    verrry excited about this one. I read the book and it was 75% good and the ending kinda sucked. but I have a feeling senor spielbergo will fix that.
