These icons of girlhood culture deserve adaptations like ‘Ready Player One’


Let’s not beat around the bush: Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One is a circle jerk of male geek culture sustained over a grueling 400 pages.

On March 26, we’ll see the release of the mega-budget blockbuster adaptation of this fanboy-favorite, courtesy of cinema’s own champion of male geek culture, Steven Spielberg. There’s nothing wrong with that — and early reviews have even been more positive than expected

But that doesn’t negate the criticisms against what Ready Player One represents — or rather, who fanboy culture tends to leave out.
