Damn You Hollywood: Ready Player One Movie Review

Ready Player One

W2M Network’s Sean Garmer joins Mark Radulich and Robert Winfree to discuss and review the latest blockbuster hitting theaters, Ready Player One, on Damn You Hollywood.

Ready Player One is a 2018 American science fiction adventure film produced and directed by Steven Spielberg, and written by Zak Penn and Ernest Cline, based on Cline’s 2011 novel of the same name. The film stars Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, Lena Waithe, Simon Pegg, and Mark Rylance.

The film is set in the year 2045, when much of humanity, escaping the desolation of the real-world, uses the virtual reality software OASIS to engage in work and play. Wade Watts (Sheridan) discovers clues to a hidden game within the program that promises the winner full ownership of the OASIS, and joins several allies to try to complete the game before indentured players working for a large company, run by Nolan Sorrento (Mendelsohn), can do so.

About Damn You Hollywood

It started out as a just a series of summer blockbuster reviews. It has grown to a nearly weekly movie review show. Robert Winfree and Mark Radulich take on the big budget studio films and animated features that have of late migrated out of the summer season and have dotted the calendar almost all year long. Winfree and Radulich critique all of the elements of the movie, but that’s not all. We discuss THE MONEY i.e. budgets, did it open #1, projected worldwide gross, etc. Lastly, we criticize the critics. Radulich reads selected bits from Rotten Tomatoes and Winfree attempts not to have an aneurysm. It’s fun for the whole family!

Robert Winfree

Mark and Robert fell into the movie review thing almost by accident. They’d gotten together a couple of times to discuss particularly divisive movies and discovered that his love of big-budget blockbusters both complimented and clashed with Robert’s perspectives, plus they both genuinely enjoy talking movies with each other. What started out as a summer exclusive series has now expanded to a near year-round almost weekly outing because they enjoy talking movies with each other so much. Robert also hosts the 411 Ground and Pound Radio, while also guest hosting on other shows on the RIBN network when possible.
