Brush off those 80’s movies and experiences as there are more references in here than you may remember! And, if you haven’t seen The Shinning, you might want to before watching. Special effects are great as you are bolted in and out of a video game and reality. Avatars are very lifelike. There are a ton of messages and comments about society wrapped up with a fun action adventure and of course, it wouldn’t be Spielberg to let us go without touching our heartstrings, innocent romance. He tries really hard to have something for every generation from some baby boomers through Gen Z and men/women/boys/girls. All is great – music, cinematography, actors – just a bit long in some parts and a bit too much of a commercial for the inevitable game to accompany it! Date night yes, may as well bring the kids as you can also watch it with the fam., but not the grandparents.
