Spielberg's screenwriting sounds a bit tinny in parts today, but the film is just as gripping and mesmerizing, thanks to his command as a director and the benevolence of his vision.

The new Blu-ray presentations--crafted with input from Spielberg himself--make the film look better than it ever has.
