Just as long as

it has at least one of the things I am about to mention. Swords, jungle, fighting, explosions, male and female

heroines, mystery, swimming and running, shooting, and huge battles.

Yes -- exactly! Explosions and gun fights are a must, as is a mysterious plot-line.



The Incredibles contains almost all of the elements that you mentioned, with

the exception of swords. Hey -- that would have been kinda cool to see one of the characters wage a swordfight

with a villian in that film, wouldn't it? Oh well....

Mitch:

True, I would love to see a classic sword battle in TI. In fact, I have a character in my own fanfiction that

works with the Incredibles who also wields a sword, but back on topic. . .

Who here likes Steven Spielberg films?

I do. I think that man is a

genius. His films are so marvelous. I think he is a very good director.

Three Spielberg films (Schindler's List,

E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, and Munich) made it to my

list of top films, so I think that's enough evidence that I very much admire Mr. Spielberg's work. :)



In order, my ten most favourite Spielberg films are as follows (only the ones that I've seen, which, as

I mentioned before, sadly doesn't include the Indiana Jones films, are included in

this list):

1. Schindler's List
2. E.T. the

Extra-Terrestrial

3. Munich
4. The

Terminal

5. Jaws
6. Catch Me if You

Can

7. A.I.: Artificial Intelligence
8. Minority

Report

9. Close Encounters of the Third Kind
10.

Hook

I have actually also seen Jurassic Park and

its sequel before, but it's been a really, really long time since I last watched them, so I don't consider

myself as having officially watched them (I will watch them eventually, though - now with the eyes of an adult ;)

)

A lot of you might wonder why Saving Private Ryan is not on the above list.

Well, that's because I have to see it first before I can make any judgments on it. ;)

So far, there has

only been one Spielberg-directed movie that I didn't like: the 2005 version of War of the

Worlds
. I was really disappointed when I saw it.

Right now, I'm really looking forward to

the Abraham Lincoln biopic (entitled Lincoln) that Spielberg's directing. I'm

looking forward to Interstellar as well.

CountSolo - You haven't seen the Jurassic Park films for a while? You should watch them again.

I just bought the entire series as a DVD set.
And I know that a fourth movie is in development.

Steven Spielberg is a certified

genius. I'm hoping to meet him (and possibly get his autograph) at the

Star Wars Convention IV this May. I'm determined to

shake his hand at least once in my lifetime. :P :D

My favorite of his productions has to be

Jurassic Park -- the first one. Gotta love that "Velociraptors in the

Kitchen" moment....

Mitch - If you want to know about his upcoming films, here they

are:

Indiana Jones 4 - The long awaited forth installment of the franchise. Harrison Ford returns in the

title role. Sean Connery is considering coming out of retirement to play his role from earlier in the series.

Scheduled for release in 2008.

Lincoln - A biopic of the 16th president and a draminization of the Civil

War. Stars Liam Neeson in the title role. Scheduled for release in 2008.

Interstellar - A science fiction

movie themed on wormholes. Speilberg's first space travel movie. Jonathan Nolan is writing the script with Kip

Thorne. Scheduled for release in 2009.

I am really in to adventure films so I will be on the look out for the Indiana Jones

film. Definetely something I would want to see. I bet Steven will do an incredible job with it.

Bill -

Oh yeah, I

knew about Indy 4 a long time ago. I've been waiting for it for

years, to tell you the truth (but aren't we all?). One reason is because Harrison

Ford is my favorite actor, so there you have it. (snigger)

Wow -- Qui-Gon Gin (Liam Neeson) as President

Lincoln? That will certainly be interesting. Sounds like the film itself will be another winner on Spielberg's

part!

And Interstellar, eh? I'll have to check that one out, as well.



Thanks for the recap, Bill! ;)

What is your favorite Monty Python film?

I don't have one. I watched Holy Grail and I didn't

like it.

Holy Grail was pretty funny, to me at least. It was the

feature film directing debut of Terry Gilliam, and he's gone on to do some interesting stuff (haven't seen any

of his movies) .
