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.
