. . . and Spielberg doesn't "do" audio commentaries;
George Lucas doesn't "do" DTS;
Woody Allen appeared before congress (or something) to demand that MANHATTAN be released in Letterbox.
John Cassavettes had to drink a GALLON of Jack Daniels (or something) before he could shoot a scene
1970s Directors . . . and their stubborn peculiarities and eccentricities.
(1970s directors have amassed such a grand, collective Cult of Personality that we have to "crumble" under them while "supporting" their eccentricities.

I dig Spielberg's train of thought. I didn't mind *some* of the changes to the original Star Wars movies, enhancing backgrounds as whatnot, but Lucas should have been ashamed of himself for removing Alec Guiness from the final shot in Return of the Jedi. I called Blasphemy! as soon as I saw that.

I didn't notice that . . . THAT is BLASPHEMY!!!!! (revisionist-SIN! against the Star Wars Legacy). As I remember it Alec Guinnis was standing next to Sebastian Shaw who played Annikin (Darth Vader).
I see Spielberg's point more clearly now as well. Thanks.

KUBRICK was against letter-boxing, as soon as KUBRICK died, Warner Bros. LETTER-BOXED ALL OF KUBRICK'S FILMS.
When Spielberg is gone, "we'll" digitally enhance ALL of SPIELBERG'S FILMS.
I hope that Spielberg lives to be a hundred and twenty--he's a wonderful filmmaker.
Spielberg, Lucas, Stephen King, ROMERO, Coppola, Argento . . .nothing beter happen to any of those guys (no premature death or anything . . . I was greatly UPSET when Spielberg was taken to the hospital for gall-stones )
