A place of diverse opinions but mutual respect and appreciation for movies and life in general? Then why not listen to the latest Lambcast episode, dedicated to Spielberg’s latest blockbuster, Ready Player One.

As always our initial thoughts are spoiler-free, but after a warning we get more in depth with details from the film and the book. Also on tap: Rants and Raves of the Week and a round of the Rotten Tomatoes game!
