Movie Review – Ready Player One

Our family doesn’t go to the movies very often. We took our daughter and several of her friends to see A Wrinkle in Time for her tenth birthday party. Before that, we only saw 1 or 2 movies in the theater in the past year. We all decided to see Ready Player One. Good choice. It’s a […]
