"My philosophy is that every single movie is a signpost of its time, and it should stand for that. We shouldn't go back and change the parting of the Red Sea in Cecil B. DeMille's 'The Ten Commandments' just because with digital tools we can now make that even more spectacular than it was," he explains

On Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom:
Quote:
"It doesn't hold the same candle up to the first film."


Lincoln...will be coming after the presidential election in November, and it's a calculated move to avoid being used as political fodder by either party.

Quote:
"It has a lot of revelance to our time, especially with our divided House. It is about a divided House in 1865. But I'm not willing to allow the film to be part of the gristmill of the 2012 election cycle," he explained to EW in the latest issue. "So I'm going to make the movie, which of course would be ready for release before the election, but it won't come out until December of '12."

And while he doesn't point to any specifics, he does say that both the Republicans and Democrats could put their teeth in the movie, and he's not willing to have it chewed up by politicians. "I don't mind starting a conversation, but a film like 'Lincoln' could be used by both sides, and the only casualty will be the film," Spielberg said. His feelings are understandable, and speaking from a purely pragmatic view, not rushing to meet an earlier date will certainly give him more breathing room to finish the film which is already coming in on a sharp deadline.

The Spielberg Face

The Onion A.V. Club has a nice little summary piece on the Spielberg face.

Quote:
Behold the glory of the “Spielberg Face”

By Marcus Gilmer December 14, 2011

Years ago, a reader of ESPN’s Bill Simmons’ columns wrote in about the “Manning Face,” a look of confusion, frustration, and disgust displayed by quarterback Peyton Manning every time something went wrong on the field which, given Manning’s strive for perfection from teammates, was often, a look inherited by his younger brother Eli, also an NFL quarterback. Now, one eagle-eye filmgoer has found its cinematic opposite: the “Spielberg Face.” Defined by Matt Patches of UGO, the “Spielberg Face” is described like so:

"When a character looks up and catches something unexpected, that's the face. When a character watches something otherworldly take place in front of their eyes, that's the face. When a character stares outward, mouth slightly agape and has a revelation that will change them forever, that's the face."

Fandor’s Kevin Lee then took up the task of finding all the examples he could of the “Spielberg Face” and created the below video, one of the most slack-jawed, sparkly-eyed supercuts ever made as well as something akin to a master’s thesis. (No word if the video will be updated to include any instances in the upcoming Spielberg films War Horse and The Adventures of Tin Tin.) So cast your eyes in wonder upon the glory of this collection of awe-inspiring gazes.

Spielberg in the saddle

Quote:
Q. You’ve been directing for more than 40 years now. How have you changed? Not grown, which is inevitable, but changed, which isn’t.

A. Well, if I could tell you that I’d go into another business. I’d be a therapist.

Q. Let me ask that question a different way. Would the Steven Spielberg who directed TV episodes and “Duel’’ 40 years ago, would he recognize the Steven Spielberg of today?

A. Oh yeah.

Q. What would he think of him?

A. I think he’d say, “What’s the matter with you? You’re much older than I am, but why won’t you grow up?’’ I don’t think there’s any difference between who I was then and who I am now.

With regards to Indy V Genre:

Quote:
Q. What haven’t you done that you’d like to?

A. [With no hesitation] A musical and a love story.

If Indy V's a musical love story, you know Willie has form in both those areas.

Not anymore she doesn't! Maybe we can get the daughter of Willie Scott and Mutt to battle it out...in song!

You mean a re-run of the TOD separare bedrooms scene? Little Willie tries to make a man out of Mutt, but discovers to her dismay that he's more of a Brokeback kind of guy.

Nah. Mutt's more likely to ignore the fanservice because he's already got the ultimate piece of ass.

Wasn't quite sure what was going to be at the end of that link. Luckily it was a fox and not a bear.

Hey, I might be a Machiavellian, sardonic bastard, but I'm hardly a hypocrite.

It was the Machiavellian aspect that made me suspicious.

Excellent video:

This tribute was created to honor Steven Spielberg when he received the 2012 David O. Selznick Achievement Award from the Producers Guild. The tribute highlights all the films that Mr. Spielberg served as Producer, Executive Producer and Director/Producer.

Warner Brothers wants Spielberg to direct this film with a sense of reality, a la SAVING PRIVATE RYAN.



Must be ditching all the source material then.

Or maybe they just want to see Moses rack up a healthy body count.

Documentary-in-the-making to stalk Spielberg in Los Angeles this fall.
Seeking donations.



Familiar faces in the video: Fran Casanova and Elodie Cinquanta.

Steven Spielberg is said to've attended the Bilderberg Group before. Interesting, no?

To conspire imposing a world government / planned economy with his capitalist ways?

Raiders...maybe?

Tony Mendez, Affleck's character in "Argo" is quoted saying: “by the time Studio Six folded several weeks after the rescue, we had received 26 scripts, including some potential moneymakers. One was from Steven Spielberg.”
