I have a question for all those who say that Spielberg's films have no depth, or say that they are just popcorn films - has it ever occured to you that maybe you just don't understant Spielberg's work? That maybe there was something deeper in all those films that you just missed? Oh wait, these are Hollywood film, so there couldn't possibly be anything of depth there. I am really angry with all the f*cking anti-Spielbergism that is plaguing the film society. Every film he makes, you all immeadiatly search for ways to critasize it. With just about any highly rated film ever made, I can imagine the ridiculous critasisms that people would throw at it had it been directed by Spielberg. If you viewed his films with an open mind (that would mean making you're critasisms of his films AFTER you've seen them), and actually bothered to analyse them rather than dismis them at the earliest opotunity, you'd realise that Jurassic Park is about a lot more than dinosaures. Please stop taking the view of "it's Hollywood and it makes a lot of money so it MUST be crap".
...and I suppose that like all the rest of the media snobs who like to think of themselves as intellectuals, you've already asumed that the reason I rate Spielberg is that I'm a stupid teenager who thinks that cinema began with The Terminator and is unawear of any films pre-James Cameron. Well I'l have you know that I am a teenager, and my other favourite directors are Kurosawa, Kubrick, Eisenstein, S.Ray, Fellini, Sorsese and Truffaut, so go f8ck yourselves.
