  • Ready Player One		In Spielberg's latest pop culture finally gets sucked into its own event horizon.		Sherilyn Connelly Wed Mar 28th 2018 2:54pmFilm

The Catholic News Service classification is A-III - adults. The film has been rated PG-13 and is being screened in 2D, 3D and IMAX formats. Cinematography by Janusz Kaminski is hard to appreciate since "Ready Player One" is nearly an animated film.

Working from a screenplay by Zak Penn ("The Incredible Hulk") and Cline, Spielberg conjures the filmmaking mojo that established his reputation decades ago.

Create your avatar and go: You can be a boy, or a girl, or a creature. and so can anyone else, so most of the time you are interacting with people who are something very different than their virtual reality version and that you will never meet in real life. In other words, narcissism reigns supreme. His only personal satisfaction comes in trying to win Halliday's contest in the OASIS.

But there was a point about midway through where my eyes started drifting away from the action in the center of the screen to the margins, hunting for pop culture references.

A "Karnataka Election Anthem" is also being written by film and music director Yograj Bhat which is due to be released in a week. Karnataka will vote on May 12 and the counting and announcement of results will be held on May 15 .

Aside from the nostalgic references, I could not help but smile all the way through "Ready Player One" because I realized that Spielberg is coming back to his roots of whimsy and awe. He spends his days hunting for a trio of Easter eggs hidden inside the OASIS by its late creator James Halliday (Mark Rylance).

So the race is on.

When it came to casting the power-hungry Nolan Sorrento, the head of a giant corporation which wants control of Oasis, Spielberg chose Australian star Ben Mendelsohn. Motivated by greed, his goal is to populate the Oasis with as many pop-up advertisements as possible.

The year is 2045, and our hero is 18-year-old Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan), aka Parzival. Wade is an orphan, living unhappily with his aunt and escaping whenever possible into the Oasis, where he appears as an animated avatar named Parzival.

In other words, Toyota is offering people a completely new model while its current RAV4 is already doing way better than best. The 2019 Toyota RAV4 with hit dealerships by the end of the year with the hybrid versions coming out sometime next year.

"I had to be in each of those places myself and that's why it was very, very hard for me because what looks so easy was actually the hardest work I think I've ever done in the digital universe". One of them includes the smart Art3mis (Olivia Cooke), on whom he develops a huge crush. Substitute Halliday for Wonka, Wade for Charlie Bucket and a golden egg for a golden ticket, and the picture becomes clear. It is a sight to behold, not only clever but hilarious and exciting as Spielberg and company insert shots from that classic 1980 film and then let the action go wild.

Ready Player One is out now.

"We found a long street on a gradient that was a good double for the kind of lengthy high streets you find in the USA, and we also filmed underneath the city's "spaghetti junction" interchange", says James. It is directed by Steven Spielberg.

The special effects going back and forth to the real world and the OASIS was, for me, what seemed like it could have been hard. He turns the zero-gravity dance floor of an Oasis night club into a physics-defying ballet, and even finds room for Mendelsohn to offer a turn on corporate villainy arrogant enough to leave his password on a Post-it note in his virtual chair.

Former Disney star Caroline Sunshine becomes newest member of Trump's White House
The 22-year-old played Tinka Hessenheffer , a "foreign exchange student" and back up dancer on the Disney sitcom. Sunshine was appointed to the Donald Trump White House press team on March 27.

The cast of young actors, Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Lena Waithe and others are superb in their roles. You're watching a master at work, one who is loving every moment of this movie too. Intense violence with gore, much stylized mayhem, brief sensuality and partial nudity, one use of profanity, occasional crude language. A Warner Bros. release playing at Franklin Park, Fallen Timbers, Levis Commons, Bowling Green, and Mall of Monroe.
