Agree with everything you wrote except for Minority Report - I really liked it when I saw it in the theater. I'd love to see a better DVD release for it, something like the War of the Worlds 2 disc SE. I do wish they had kept the ending about the murder rate increasing, instead of going with the "happy" ending.
Never seen The Terminal (and I don't really have any desire to remedy that), but it will be interesting to hear him talk about it. Maybe it'll convince me to check it out, but somehow, I doubt it.
While he'll surely discuss Raiders, I get the feeling that Temple of Doom & Last Crusade are going to be skipped in the interest of discussing other films. The fourth disc in the DVD set gives a decent amount of info, so that's fine by me. The less said about Hook, the better...

I wouldn't expect it. The Scorcese doc stayed pretty close to just discussing the films, characters, and working with the actors. It probably won't get too in depth with his producing, given that they don't even include all the films he's directed.
