Ready Player One

Ready player one is the latest in a long line of Spielberg smash-hit box office films.

But you deserve to see to this planet till the very end as the galaxy hurtles on its mass collision course with its neighbours; and when the suns, and the planets that halo around them, collide with other suns, destroying worlds that burgeoned life from nothing and moons that could have – and did –  support the future. 74 more words
