The plot is the creator (James Halliday) of a virtual reality simulator world called the OASIS has passed away. He was a huge fan of 1980’s era technology and pop-culture. His will states there are Easter eggs hidden throughout the OASIS that will lead to a final Easter Egg.

.The book/movie really resonates with those of us that remember the 1980’s. There are countless throwback references that make you smile when you remember them. From the looks of the trailer, they are cramming in a multitude of those references as well. This will be one of those movies you pause the Bluray so you can look at all the 80’s stuff on screen.
Ready Player One was a New York Times bestseller. Rebecca Serle of The Huffington Post said it “has it all – nostalgia, trivia, adventure, romance, heart and, dare I say it, some very fascinating social commentary”. Jack and I both can’t wait to see this book brought to life on screen by Steven Spielberg, especially since there are references to his contributions to the 1980’s nerd culture.
