Ready Player One – Projector

Film Brain dives into Steven Spielberg’s visually breathtaking pop culture Easter egg hunt, only find it decidedly hollow at the centre.

About Film Brain

"Bad Movie Beatdown" takes a look at the very worst that Hollywood has to offer with commentary and analysis. "Projector" is reviews of current UK releases that have yet to open in the US. There may also be some commentaries and other material.


  1. Hrm, from what you described, this may actually be the best videogame movie that has ever been made. It’s a story that focuses on experience and sensory overload over nuance or substance, there’s like a krillion different franchises from all cultural walks and genre shifts that were integrated over the years as DLC, and the main character’s personality is about as magical as a bowl of cereal, meant to serve as a springboard for the audience to view the story vicariously through him. IOI even serves as a sort of existential crisis that stands to put a stranglehold on the game itself, a threat that takes place outside of the game and worms its way in. Nah, I doubt I’d ever want anymore than one viewing, though I’d be lying if I wasn’t hype as hell to see Kaneda’s bike when I saw it in the trailer.

  2. This movie reminds me of Isekai/trapped in the video game animes.
