Ready Player One is officially certified as Fresh Fresh on the Rotten Tomatoes Ratings page. The film, the latest film by legendary director Steven Spielberg, is the youngest in a long line of genre images to debut in March and is also best-received. A Wrinkle In Time, Tomb Raider and Pacific Rim Uprising produced mixed reactions. For Spielberg, this is the 22nd time in his glorious career that he has been awarded the certification mark Certified Fresh as a certifier. This shows that he still has the makings of quality film.
It seemed like Ready Player One was destined for its surprise debut at the SXSW Festival. The first reactions of the film screening were mostly positive. The participants praised the film as an old escape popcorn film by Spielberg. Of course, social media reviews are not always a harbinger of what written reviews will be, but in this case, that’s exactly what happened.
Tonight, Rotten Tomatoes has updated its Ready Player One page to give the Science Fiction movie the Certified Fresh Ranking. At the time of writing, 93 reviews were produced and the Tomatometer achieved a solid 84 percent. Critics’ consensus says, “Ready Player One is an exciting nostalgic adventure that perfectly incorporates Spielberg’s strengths and adds yet another compelling adventure to his filmography.”
This development is great news for moviegoers as the rush for Ready Player One was quite negative in the months leading up to its debut. A combination of an uninspired marketing campaign that relied too heavily on references to pop culture and a devastating critique of the original material left many in doubt about the potential quality of the film. Spielberg, however, showed why he remains the master by transcending the mistakes of the book and doing something entertaining and sincere. In the eyes of many, the movie Ready Player One is a notable improvement on Ernest Cline’s novel. This is a trick Spielberg has achieved earlier in his career (see: Jaws, Jurassic Park). The director was not shy to admit that there are some major differences between the book and the movie, which was apparently the best. It will be interesting to see this word of mouth hit the box office of Ready Player One this weekend.
Three months after the launch of The Post, nominated for The Fresh Fresh’s The Post, Spielbergshows he still has plenty of fuel in his tank, with a movie of backward adventures reminiscent of his classics. This is a good omen for his next project, Indiana Jones 5. In any case, the Ready Player One was a litmus test to see if Spielberg could lead a crowd that pleased the crowd, and for the rest, that’s the case What happened If you look at your (supposedly) last archaeological search with Dr. Ing. Preparing Henry Jones, Jr., it’s encouraging that you have not lost Spielberg’s spell.
