The way it dances between narrative and theme is gorgeous, and the performances are all just seismic. There's like five or six performances just as impressive as Day Lewis. I think Spielberg's collaborations with Kushner have been astounding, and his best films in twenty years.

 

Private Ryan is the one I can't take anymore. The thing is much closer to Armageddon than it's reputation. Empire of the Sun sounds like something I will rewatch too.

I just thought it's tone was off, and it was a stilted, disorganized drama. Here is my post from the post release thread:

That's what he said. I presume we should wait to let Art do the final tally.

THE END

post #322 of 326
My list would be wildly different from this but, looking at the man's filmography, I really do not get how he gets so much hate from people.

If you said you liked Spielberg at my film school, you'd get so many eye rolls at once, you would think my classmates had gone collectively blind.

The guy's a master of the form. End of story.
post #323 of 326
Because Andre, meu grande amigo, Spielberg has the balls to play in the fields of sentiment. And having balls just ain't cool at film school.

post #324 of 326
Agreed, Bucho... Been loving your reviews btw.

Nice Portuguese, too!!
post #325 of 326
Obrigado companheiro! Coincidentally the main reason I know any Portuguese at all is that I'm such a ha-uuge Indy fan I went in search of Indy-like adventure and ended up living in the Brazilian Amazon for six months. Also thanks for setting me up to bring that up since I know people love it when other people derail threads to brag about awesomely brave things they've done and don't find it obnoxious in the slightest.
post #326 of 326

There are films in the 18 to 28 range that would be the shining lights of some other directors' filmographies.
