Again, another movie I never knew existed and after the review I'm glad I didn't
know about it. Although, it was interesting learning Spielberg and Kubrick were
buddy-buddy. And what the heck was with everyone acting like seals during the
skit parts?!

Also; concerning the flashback to a certain being who "toyed" with him, I wonder
how things will go down if Doug ever reviews Ted.

You know what bugs me the most about his recent slams on Spielberg? That he's painting this image of Spielberg as a one-trick pony of being sentimental and whimsical and upbeat.
Did EVERYONE in the entire world forget Spielberg has made adult movies? "Schindler's List," and "Saving Private Ryan" ring any bells? Is Doug trying to convince people that THOSE are family friendly movies? Cause nothing is more family friendly than Nazis killing hundreds of Jews.
Or what about Spielberg's less-talked about work? "Empire of the Sun" or "Munich" both of which are mature films that present a rather depressing tone to them. If you want to really go even farther, look at Spielberg's early work, "Duel" and "The Sugarland Express" for examples. What's so upbeat about a man getting chased by a truck driver or a criminal couple on the run from the law?

Yeah, That really bugs when i see allot slams on Spielberg in some NC reviews of his movies. And doesn't the NC know that Steven Spielberg was the founder of both DreamWorks Studios (The studio who made Spielberg's Saving Private Ryan, War Horse, A.I.,etc.) and DreamWorks Animation SKG

I disagree with the Critic's arguing with the ending but I love this movie,


Verdict:
Sure it as problems and sometimes it lacks in focus, but what made it work was about the main character who wanted to be a real boy and be try to be with society. I will admit the future world look amazing to look at, I will admit the actors try their best and surprisingly they did brilliant job...also What made it work was the main character "Dave" who was rejected by his parents go on this adventure then achieved that dream, the ending to be honest...I cried at it because Dave the main character wanted his to be with his mother back and wanted to spend the days like...a real family to me that wait held the movie together. and it was nominated for academy awards....

so I'm guessing the message that Kubrick and Spielberg wanted for us is..."Learn who your really are and spend your life with either family, friends or journey on your life"

that's the message I learned from so...take it what it's worth and check it out.

Precisely and as for the "spotlight fetish," that's a little uncalled for. Is he gonna harp on J. J. Abrams for using lens flare in his Star Trek movies? If he's gonna do that, he might as well harp on Alfred Hitchcock's choice of blonde actresses in his movie or Woody Allen's constant use of jazz songs in his movies or hell, why not go the distance and harp on EVERY Silent Movie filmmaker for using title cards to show what people are saying if he's gonna be that rude.

Such a powerful and funny review. Never knew about the ending to this movie, and I'm surprised that a legendary filmmaker wanted it to end it like that, yet his friend kept it when he was making it.

I guess these two were the best of friends, and he wanted to make his friend's life long dream come true, no matter what the coast.

Thanks Doug, you showed us a great lesson in this review. Well done.

Also, love his payback at TMZ. Funny stuff.

I also loved the part when the scenes involving Teddy cause the Critic to make a flashback to his evil teddy Ruxpin doll. XD

Heh yeah, I knew you would.

But tell me, what was your thought of the Critic's speech about how Spielberg wanted to make Kubrick's dream come true, as well as the very close friendship that they had?

I'd Think the Critic speech is quite touching. He mentions how Kubrick wanted to make A.I. in the early 1970s. And he hired a series of writers up until the mid-1990s. But the film was in development hell for years. Beacuse the CGI was was not advanced enough to create the David character, whom he believed no child actor would believably portray. Then Stanley gave the rights to the film to Steven Spielberg and DreamWorks, but the film did not gain allot of momentum until Kubrick's death in 1999. Spielberg remained close to Watson's story for the screenplay for the film. And the film was also dedicated to the loving memory of Stanley Kubrick once it was released wordwide.
