This means something. This is important.

Indiana Jones and the Close Encounters of the Third Kind

» Kurt and Shing both described it as "fun," which is about as assuring as Paula Abdul praising your outfit for her critique.

» Lucas: "Hound Dog"? Russians? Greasers? A diner? I can't tell what era this is! The 80s? We need a gratuitous nucular explosion!

» Video idea: Bob Falfa challenges Mutt Williams to a drag race.

» What, exactly, was the point of the masked, chop-socky dart-spitters?

» Kingdom of the Cheap-Looking Plastic Skull is more like it.

» I want an animated .gif of Harrison Ford jerking his head about while "communicating" with the skull.

» The chase sequence in the forest references the forest chase sequence in The Incredibles, which references the forest chase sequence in Return of the Jedi. Note that Lucasfilm founded Pixar.

» "Me Tarzan. You dad."

» Monkeys = Ewoks.

» I hope the gold jewelry was worth it, Mac. At least Elsa died trying to retrieve the Holy Grail.


A number of production photos were stolen from Spielberg's office. Roderick Eric Davis, 37, pled guilty to two felony counts and will serve two years and four months in jail.


Fienberg:

I'd say "This is proof that even as part of a pure money-grab, Spielberg isn't capable of making an unmitigated disaster," but the guy's last sequel was "The Lost World."

I must've missed the memo that said The Lost World was a disaster, because I LOVED it.

Granted, I haven't seen it since 1998, and if I saw it again today, my opinion might change, but I saw it seven times at cinemas — twice on one day!

I loved the tiny dinosaurs attacking a girl and ripping off bits of a man's flesh.

I loved the teetering trailer sequence.

I loved the two Tyrannosaurus Rexes jointly tearing a man apart.

I loved the T. Rex squashing a man under its foot, sticking its tongue in a waterfall and roaming suburban San Diego.

I loved the raptors picking people off in high grass and losing traction on tile roofing.

My favourite scene:
A woman (I don't remember who) digs a hole under a door to escape an outbuilding. She sticks her head through the hole to check for raptors, pulls out to report that the coast is clear and BAM! A raptor busts through the door, jolting the audience.
