Ready Player One – A Love Letter to Children of the 80s


by Katherine Reilly

One of the most fondest memories I have of my childhood, is waking up on Saturday mornings, sprinting to the TV and with a bowl of cereal in my lap, watched cartoons. There was something magical about this decade that captivated not only myself, but everyone who grew up during that period of time. It was the 80s; a time when DeLoreans became synonymous to adventure and home gaming literally boomed in every household.

With 80s nostalgia reaching a critical peak, a new film is coming out in theatres – “Ready Player One” based on the 2011 science fiction novel of Ernest Cline which is literally a love letter to all children of the 80s.

‘The Iron Giant’? ‘Duke Nukem’? ‘The Batmobile’? ‘Boomboxes’? The list is endless and since this is an educational blog and I don’t do reviews here, all I want to say is that we’re in for a whale of a ride when this hits theaters in March. The chime at the end of the trailer, one of the most iconic in cinematic history, guarantees that!

Can’t wait to revisit my childhood once again!

Lots of love,
