Will Ready Player One kill nostalgia?
by MATT STOKES | APRIL 9, 2018
In a bonus segment of the podcast, we reviewed Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One. In our review, we discussed the movie and how it’s different from Ernest Cline’s book; the movie’s ideas; how Halladay is more like Mark Zuckerberg than Steve Jobs; whether we want to see characters from our favorite movies mush up against each other; and whether this movie represents the tipping point of the nostalgia industry’s popularity.
What other movies have we been reconsidering?
Close Encounters Of The Third Kind (1977) | Directed by Steven Spielberg | Starring Richard Dreyfuss, Melinda Dillon, Teri Garr
Is anyone else driven insane by the gibberish fake language in Slums Of Beverly Hills? (otherwise: good movie)
Slums Of Beverly HIlls (1998) | Directed by Tamara Jenkins | Starring Natasha Lyonne, Alan Arkin, Marisa Tomei
