Ready Player One. A lot to enjoy in this film. Not sure if I particularly appreciated the ending with its preachy overtones of ... not sure if this is exactly a spoiler, but I'll put one up anyway * Spoiler Alert*... playing games is fine but you should concentrate on reality, because wait for it, reality is real. How very insightful. I accept the message superficially when applying to things like social media, but reality is very much up for grabs and I enjoy films that actually explore this issue - what it is to be human when related to AI too. There's none of that in this film.

Did enjoy the storytelling though which Spielberg excels at.
