In this latest episode of The Geek Embassy Watches, ambassadors Nicole, Regina, Tahani, Max, and Evan discuss the first big-budget sci-fi film of 2018: Ready Player One. Adapted from Ernest Cline’s bestselling novel, director Steven Spielberg and composer Alan Silvestri bring the dystopian future of 2045 Columbus, Ohio to life in a computer animation showcase wrapped in a love letter to pop & nerd culture. Our incredibly handsome and exceedingly intelligent host Dante guides our ambassadors on a discussion of the movie’s script, animation, music, and characters as we break down the successes, failures, and overall performance of one of the most hotly anticipated movies of the year. Does Ready Player One get a 1-Up, or should Spielberg go AFK?
