#1 Republicans should start talking about raising taxes on copyrights...

#2 ...no, cutting back copyright to its original intent of 14 years.

#3 In these days of instant and cheap electrionic publishing such as Kindle .. 2 years might be a more appropriate copyright period.

#4 Not sure what happened to Spielberg. There was a time when he could do no wrong and everybody loved him. Now, not so much.

#5 I just don't understand how a guy that made "Schindler's List" "Saving Private Ryan," and "Band of Brothers" can even sit down at a table with one of Bambi's minions.
Apparently, the lefties in the entertainment industry are bigger whores than I ever thought before.
How can a man who went through, supposedly, a personal catharsis during the making of "Schindler's List" cozy up to a regime that is so anti-Israeli?
I guess Dreamworks is off my list of movie makers to watch. I may be a spit in the ocean but my paltry spendings on movies will speak as best they can.

#6 No surprise here. Conservatives don't get love in Hollywood.

#7 Liberals don't hate WW2, they just hate every other war. After all Hitler turned against Stalin so he's a legitimate enemy of the People in their minds.

#8 Funny, since the only movie of his I saw recently was Tintin, and that was on a DVD rental. The computer CGI was amazing along with the cinematography. The story was a great big pile of flaming ass.

#9 I would like you to review the cast and key conversation scenes, also try skipping the fight scenes, and reconsider what you think about saving ryans privates.
Ambrose is so strong, the spielberg/hanks wondertwin powers could not even scratch it.
IJ4 is aweful. I only saw the end because I accidentally tuned in early for the next show.
Which leaves obama two choices: crawl into a lead lined refrigerator or team up with George Lucas.

#10 *off topic
If hollywood could to better than sneeze turds, they would remake Longest Day, but base it off of Abrose's literature D-Day. Use the cast from Greatest Raid, they did just fine...or actual soldiers as IMHO Act of Valor pulled off.

#11 Spielberg insisted that Messina sit down with the DreamWorks marketing team.
You mean the guys who put all the product placements in movies? Or design all those lame toys they put in happy meals? Or who change the villains from Muslim terrorists to Christian arms makers to make it sell overseas?
Yeah, that's why Hollywood can't make good movies.
