Steven Spielberg’s “Ready Player One” was made for the holiday season.
It’s about an Easter egg by a director known for gilding the lily.
Its classic Spielberg overkill. But it also in his sci-fi wheelhouse.
The teenage hero played Ty Sheridan lives in a post apocalyptic housing project called The Stacks whose residents escape into The Oasis a video game universe inspired by 1980s pop culture.
The introverted nerd who created it is played by Mark Rylance who people forget is a former Milwaukee resident.
