There are more pop-culture cameos in Ready Player One than you can shake a stick at, but surely the most hilarious and unexpected of them all was horror icon Chucky.
During the third act battle, Aech (Lena Waithe) throws a "little guy" to Parzival (Tye Sheridan), and as we cut from the real world into the OASIS, the tiny fella is revealed to be the Child's Play antagonist himself.
He cackles manically as he tries to stab Parzival, before our hero manages to throw Chucky in the air, where he lands in a crowd of Sorrento's (Ben Mendelsohn) goons and starts stabbing them to death.
The kicker? One of the cronies shouts, "It's f***ing Chucky!" Brilliant use of your single PG-13 F-bomb, there.
Stay at home dad who spends as much time teaching his kids the merits of Martin Scorsese as possible (against the missus' wishes).
