Mar 28, 2018 | Chad Riley, Eddie Villanueva, Movies, Podcasts, Spencer Williams, The Filmlosophers

The Filmlosophers, Eddie Villanueva, Chad Riley and Spencer Williams, head to the OASIS for this week’s review of Ready Player One (2018). Adapted from Ernest Cline’s popular novel by none other than Steven Spielberg, the film follows Wade Watts and his avatar, Parzival, on a quest to complete a series of challenges and keep the multi-world digital space out of the hands of IOI, an evil corporation looking to lock down and commodify the OASIS.

Starring Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, Mark Rylance, Simon Pegg and more, the story indulges in a slew of 80s pop culture references and offers a look at what our world could look like in the very near future.
