My policy is I don't see 3-D revivals of old movies. Don't encourage them !!!
Though it's been my lifelong dream that mainstream multiplex would be in the habit of devoting one screen to older films -- a way of giving something back to the art we love so much -- I didn't foresee it happening in this way and I'm not too happy about it since 3D is a cheap (okay, expensive) gimmick and not the way these films were originally shot and therefore impure (like colorizing black & white movies).
But you know, if they must do it, this one's maybe the best choice. Don'cha think? Maybe I should make an exception just this once.
Most people love Spielberg unreservedly. Alas not I. But I do love some of his pictures so I thought I'd do a top ten. But it turns out I only have five. They are...
- Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)... aka the second best picture of 1981
- Jaws (1975) ...a member of maybe the best best picture lineup ever
- Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977) ...the only one I've written about recently
- Schindler's List (1993)
- Jurassic Park (1993)
All the others I have minor or major quibbles with. But those five? Pass the popcorn! Extra butter.
