I really loved the book. I don't get why people hate it.
I don't want to poo poo on someone else's love for the book, so I won't. I have too many salty thoughts on the thing that would come across as curmudgeonly probably .
Looks like a great film.
Yep... I like it
These TV spots are looking good Please ignore trailer rehashes after the TV spots.

Ready Player One premiere reviews praise Steven Spielberg movie | EW.com
Speilberg's "Ready Player One" Is An Instant Sci-fi Masterpiece
There are some slightly negative reviews as well (as for every movie), but the movie is getting mostly positive reviews.
Call me the pessimist in the group.
I want Ready Player One to be the next Who Censored/Framed Rodger Rabbit, but I am afraid a lot to how they'll balance the film in a way that makes sense.
But perhaps something to mention, and was buried in the midst is that the review embargo drops THIS MORNING, so we are going to see the film get a lot of time critically.
Full reviews are already out online, which is surprising. Same thing. They're mostly positive.
this movie looks big and dumb.
Yeah, this is the trailer they should have led with.

Jesus. SO MANY REFERENCES.
Some notable ones: MCU, Mario Kart, HTTYD, Cloverfield, FNAF, Minecraft, Toy Story, The Shining, Cars, Star Wars, Tron, Avatar, Ghostbusters, The Matrix, Jaws, Monsters Inc, Elf, ET, Clash of the Titans, Wreck It Ralph, Splatoon, Donkey Kong, Kid Icarus, F-Zero, Bioshock, Zelda, Pac-Man.
MARIO KART? TOY STORY? OMG
Not to walk on anyone's parade, but I wouldn't put much stock in a Wikia that can anyone edit. Especially when the movie has only been screened to critic and not nearly enough people to catalog all of these references.
The only way I can buy it, is if there are a lot of little private screenings happening that people are seeing early. Heck, I just saw today someone saying that they were going to a private screening of RP1 soon.
That said, I do think we should temper our excitement, as that list doesn't make sense.
Yeah, if there were that many Nintendo and Disney characters in the movie, we would have seen some by now.
I do think that this film will be our Rodger Rabbit of our era in shere volume of cameos, but I do agree that if we did know, we would've already known about that (unless Spielberg and WB are going to throw a Lego Movie at us with some surprise characters).
According to Spielberg, all of the major studios were very cooperative and helpful with lending their IPs to the film. Not saying that that list is correct but it doesn't seem like they ran into any major road blocks with acquiring the cameos.
I really wonder where Spielburg goes after this. It was starting to look like he was losing his touch, but he might have gotten it back again with RPO.
