Fifth about The Seventh

Ready Player One – Revisit

Ready Player One: director Steven Spielberg made it evident what he was trying to achieve when he said this work is a movie, not a film; that’s a subtle distinction between something more serious and something more breezy. Neither is easy to get done (particularly not well), and he proves, after cranking out a few great films in a row, that he still can make very entertaining movies as well. There may be a few issues with the plot, but the more connected one is with the material, the less relevant they become. A second viewing allows for a deeper grasp of the many different references, as some turn out to be more subtle than others. Still, the story stands by itself. Production values are, needless to say, top-notch.
