The film is an adaptation of the 2011 science-fiction novel by Ernest Cline. However, movie studios were well aware of this novel’s appeal. So much so, that Warner Bros. acquired the rights to the novel a year before it was published.

Ready Player One takes place in 2045, where the world is so desolate most of humanity uses a virtual-reality software known as OASIS, to escape it. This includes Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan), a teenager who lives in the slums of Ohio, who one day hopes to capture a legendary Easter egg.

Bridge of Spies Movie Review

Director Steven Spielberg and actor Tom Hanks have worked together on four films together if you include the new movie, Bridge of Spies. They collaborated on Catch Me If You Can, Saving Private Ryan, and The Terminal—all outstanding pieces of work. This team reminds me of one from some time ago, director Frank Capra, and actor Jimmy Stewart. A masterful storyteller and a damn good actor. Bridge of Spies is no different; it is another wonderful partnership that provides true art.

 Bridge of Spies tells the story of American insurance lawyer James B. Donovan (Tom Hanks), who is chosen to legally defend Rudolf Abel (Mark Rylance), a man accused of espionage during The Cold War. However, he quickly learns that though he was picked to show the world America was going to give Abel a fair trial, that the case might not be as impartial as he imagined. After a series of events, he is recruited by the CIA to negotiate the release of Francis Gary Powers (Austin Stowell), an American pilot whose U-2 spy plane was shot down in the Soviet Union.

Jurassic World is a World of Fun

In 1993, director Steven Spielberg brought the world one of the most iconic films in cinematic history—Jurassic Park. A movie that has stood the test of time, as two decades later it still manages to wow and even frighten some of its viewers. Jurassic Park is just one of those movie that really capture the feeling of movie magic. The Academy Award winning film would spawn two disappointing sequels, but now, 22 years later, director Colin Trevorrow finally reopens the park, now known as Jurassic World.

The movie tells the story Jurassic World, which has been open for 10 years, without incident. But there is a need for a new attraction, one that is bigger, and “has more teeth.” This plan backfires horribly and now, the team of velociraptor trainer, Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) and manager of the park, Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard), must stop this hybrid dinosaur from destroying the park and everyone in it.

Poltergeist is Pale Version of Predecessor

It was 1982 and writer-producer Steven Spielberg, with director Tobe Hooper, would introduce fans to Poltergeist. A true horror favorite with great special effects and one of the most memorable quotes of all-time. The film was even nominated for three Academy Awards, including: Best Original Score, Best Visual Effects, and Best Sound Editing. Though it didn’t win any of the Oscars, the movie still became a classic film from the 80s that is still celebrated today. Now, director Gil Kenan brings the world a remake of the horror classic about 33 years later, “It’s here!”
