“The best latter-day Spielberg films look back in order to tell us about where we are. READY PLAYER ONE just speeds along in reverse.” – Sean Burns, The ARTery

“The final act helps READY PLAYER ONE redeem itself a bit as it’s energetic and puts the spotlight on the elements that should have taken center stage from the outset.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“It’s a fitting summation of Spielberg’s career: occasional nods to the real world, but really preferring a world of fantasy and eternal adolescence.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“What makes this standout from other Anderson films (besides having a plot) is that the characters – particularly the dogs – are much more well-rounded than the caricatures who you usually parade through his movies.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“Wes Anderson movies are already such exactingly micro-designed miniatures, it’s a wonder he doesn’t use stop-motion animation for all of them.” – Sean Burns, The ARTery
