#167 – Ready Player One and Capitalizing on Intertextuality

On this episode of the Reel World Theology Podcast:

We grab the reigns of nostalgia and dare not let go! Steven Spielberg adapts Ernest Cline’s love letter to 80’s pop-culture in a big budget, popcorn-shoveling spectacle. How does it translate from the book? Is it ok that we are making a movie that is almost completely references to other things? We talk about all the things that make us who we are and what happens when you try to tell stories where the virtual is more interesting than the real.
