Steven Spielberg's latest sci-fi blockbuster Ready Player One is a strange sort of creature — a complete hodgepodge of blatant allusions specifically intended for sparking the nostalgia feels, which it does with manipulative effectiveness. The whole thing is Christmas-wrapped in a tale about saving a virtual reality game, and the rest of the world by extension, called the OASIS from falling into the hands of a greedy corporation controlled by self-centered businessman Nolan Sorrento (Ben Mendelsohn). The high-concept plot is straightforward and uncomplicated, specially designed so as not to interfere with the smorgasbord of cultural references largely making up the film, which is, after all, the main attraction. Of course, the script, based on the book of the same name by Ernest Cline, introduces a few challenges and mild complexity in the way of reluctant, would-be hero Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) and a band of resistance fighters, but ultimately, audiences book a passage to this adventure fantasy purely for the sake of wistful escapism.

And this is precisely what makes Spielberg's adaptation a strange and fascinating piece of entertainment. Wade explains in voiceover that many of the world's economies are in ruins, forcing much of an unemployed society survives in overcrowded ghettos or congested cities where trailer homes are piled on top of each other like skyscrapers. Rather than deal or face the problem, however, people ignore the sad, deplorable conditions of their reality by escaping into the OASIS where players can be whoever or whatever they want. And most participants, as far moviegoers can see, choose fanciful, almost futuristic looking characters. But the world is an amalgamation of a past they never personally experienced because it was long before their time, rendering the pop-culture references throughout meaningless outside of a fondness established by the game's creator James Halliday (Mark Rylance). After his death, his fondness has grown into society's obsession, attaching a sense of identity to a romanticized pastiche of an imaginary "carefree" time.

There is something strangely familiar and relatable to this dystopian future — beyond the obvious idea of escapism through social media and video games. It's the preoccupation with the pop-culture of the past, of a contemporary society failing to create something new and unique. And because of this fixation with pointless abstractions, the more problematic it becomes to live in the present, which admittedly, is the plot's central theme. What's really interesting though is how this theme also seems to be an indictment of us, an audience also seeking an escape from the troubled times of the present. Similar to Wade, we put on our rose-tinted glasses as to be whisked away to an imaginary world that feeds our nostalgic yearnings. For some, it's almost like a game where we're spending a majority of the time pointing out and guessing the references instead of a story about the game's creator hiding three difficult challenges in order to find a new owner. Funny enough, the plot is itself a subtle reference to Willy Wonka's efforts passing on his legacy.

Perhaps even more curious is Spielberg somehow making the whole spectacle entertaining rather than its downfall. The legendary filmmaker embraces the irony and even revels in it, a man partially responsible for creating much of what is seen on screen in the first place. His signature style for the grandiose and child-like wonderment are in full display, providing the production with a great deal of its charm though it tends to drag its feet in the middle of the second act. The subplot with love-interest Art3mis (Olivia Cooke) feels forced and distracting at times, but Spielberg eventually reigns it in and makes it fit into the storyline by the end. But again, this is not a tale to challenge viewers as much as simply enjoy the phantasmagoric visuals, to wallow in the momentary delight of escaping the real world with the imaginary. As Wade explains its when playing the classic Atari gameAdventure, savor the pleasure in simply playing the game, wandering through the world its creator gifted participants, and Ready Player One is most definitely not about the absurdly predictable conclusion but about the fun of being immersed in pop-culture references of the past.
