95 Things That Should Be Ready Player One Easter Eggs

As of this writing, I have not yet seen Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One, adapted from the Ernst Cline novel. I have read the book, which is primarily known for having an abundant amount of references to various pop culture items. I consider myself as astute a student of pop culture as anyone, so when I do see Ready Player One, I will be bringing this list to use as a checklist with which to grade the film. The more of these 95 items that are in the film, the happier I’ll be.
