Are you telling me that the 'robots' from A.I. do not look identical to the 'interdimensional beings' from Crystal Skull? And that both of them aren't lifted right out of Close Encounters of the Third Kind?
Who cares what the script calls them. Spielberg doesn't know how to end a movie and he uses the same fucking trick almost 100% of the time. Dude's a hack. He makes jerkoff Holocaust films that the Academy shits Oscars on half the time, and the rest of the time his output would be indistinguishable from Michael Bay IF IT WEREN'T FOR THE DAMN ALIENS.

I don't care that they look like aliens, and who the fuck should? They're robots dude. The movie only makes sense if they're robots. Wanna youtube link from the "hack" himself? www.youtube.com/watch?v=rz7sPiOoU7A.
Besides, Aliens are the least of Spielberg's problems. The worst part of A.I. and pretty much every other movie he's done is his goddamn daddy issues.

After Indiana Jones survived Chernobyl by hiding inside a refrigerator, I've become convinced that it doesn't matter to Spielberg if his movies 'make sense'. But whatever.
The Malick film looks like that Aronofsky film that had Hugh Jackman in it, although The Fountain I think suffered for some pretty aggressive editing, which I'm pretty sure was done at the studio's insistence. I'd really love to see a director's cut of that film.
When I saw the New World, it was at my local art-house cinema, by myself on a Tuesday night, and I was so excited. Then I was bored out of my mind for damn near three hours.
But since then I've read so much about how that's such a brilliant movie and it's on everyones top of the decade lists. I'm usually patient with slow movies. So it must have been an off night for me. But I still haven't picked it up since then.
Anyway, now I know more what to expect from Tree of Life. And I hear it has dinosaurs.
Best Animated Movie of 2010: Totally has to be Toy Story 3.
While I thoroughly enjoyed Despicable Me and How to Train Your Dragon, Toy Story 3 was infinitely better. What is it that they put in the water over at Pixar? Every film they make is incredible... having said that, I still think Cars 2 will be a lemon.
As for the new Shrek movie... did they really need to make a 4th? Or a 3rd or 2nd, for that matter? Tragic.

The Black Swan sucks, don't see it, don't talk about it, just forget it.
Why would any of us give a shit about Natalie Portman's character??? She was actually frustrating to watch/listen to.
But the best part of this film was watching it in a theatre full of uncomfortable people who somehow got it in their minds that they were going into a Friday night blockbuster. Y'know, your typical big hollywood slow descent into madness themed film based around the ballet?. So much out of place laughter, it was great.
The dancing was also great, like really great. And there were some cool Lynch-like scary parts, but possibly I was hating the movie so much that it was simply the best of the bad.
