I think Spielberg is MUCH more of a pansy than Lucas. Lucas mostly confines himself to his Star Wars creations, but Spielberg's films permeate our culture and completely fool the movie-going public with all their crap.

By that I just meant that he's a wuss filmaker who's willing to churn out exactly what the mass public wants to see.

I didn't mean "pansy" in an anti-gay way or anything. That's funny.

Don't worry, no offence taken - I just didn't understand the context. Not sure whether I agree or not though...

I wasn't referring to Spielberg when I used the phrase "fantasy films for children"; I was speaking of Lucas. I think that many of Spielberg's films are for children, even though he didn't intend it. I actually did not like "Minority Report" at all; aside from some skilful sequences, there was much I didn't like, from the plot resolution to the cinematopgrahy (I am not crazy, to say the very least, about the hues he chooses for many of his films). Of course, you have every reason to like it, as do critics, given that you interpret it differently than I do and that it is well done in a number of respects.

However, even with "Minority Report" under his belt, my opinion of Spielberg isn't very high. To each his own, I say.
