I still consider A.I. half-Kubrick, half-Spielberg.
IMO I would rate the Kubrick films I have seen:

2001: A Space Odyssey
Dr. Strangelove
The Shining
A Clockwork Orange
Spartacus
Lolita
Full Metal Jacket
Barry Lyndon
Paths of Glory
Eyes Wide Shut

I really liked A.I. I found it's themes to be very disturbing... The only thing I really disliked was the ending

Clockwork is another movie I want to see, but I'm not sure if I can stomach it.

2001 is a masterpiece and ClockWork Orange

Eye's Wide Shut is for people who dont' want to look like perv, so they wank it to the orgy scene and Nicole Kidman.

That's because Spielberg directed that last part of the Film Since Kubrick died during filming of A.I.

I don't think that's true.

I'm pretty sure Kubrick died before filming started...

Sorry, I meant about your assessment of Eyes Wide Shut.

and:

In an interview with film critic Mark Kermode on The Culture Show broadcast on November 4 2006, Spielberg responded to some of the criticisms of the film, stating that many of the so called 'sentimental' elements of the film, including the ending, were in fact Kubrick's and vice-versa the darker elements were his own.

Your right, my bad

from wikipedia

Quote:
[edit] A.I.: Artificial Intelligence—posthumous completion
One Kubrick project was eventually completed by another director, Steven Spielberg. Throughout the 1980s and early 90s, Kubrick collaborated with various writers (including Brian Aldiss, Sara Maitland and Ian Watson) on a project called by various names, including "Pinocchio" and "Artificial Intelligence."


Haley Joel Osment and Jude Law in a scene of A.I.The film was developed expanding on Aldiss' short story "Super-Toys Last All Summer Long," which Kubrick and his writers turned into a feature-length film in three acts. It was a futuristic fairy tale about a robot which resembles and behaves as a child, who is sold as a temporary surrogate to a family whose only son is in a coma. The robot, however, learns of this, and out of sympathy is left abandoned in the woods by his owners instead of being returned to the factory for destruction. The rest of the story concerns the robot's attempts in becoming a real boy by seeking “Blue Fairy” (a reference to Pinocchio), in order to regain his mother's love and acceptance once more, as his love was hard-wired into him, and hence everlasting. The journey would take the boy-robot (referred to as a "Mecha" ) thousands of years.

Kubrick reportedly held long telephone discussions with Steven Spielberg regarding the film, and, according to Spielberg, at one point stated that the subject matter was closer to Spielberg's sensibilities than his. In 2001, following Kubrick's death, Spielberg took the various drafts and notes left by Kubrick and his writers, and composed a new screenplay, and in association with what remained of Kubrick's production unit, made the movie A.I.: Artificial Intelligence, starring Haley Joel Osment.

The film contains a posthumous producing credit for Stanley Kubrick at the beginning, and the brief dedication "For Stanley" at the end. The film contains many recurrent Kubrick motifs, such as an omniscient narrator, an extreme form of the three act structure, the themes of humanity and inhumanity, and a sardonic view of Freudian psychology.

A.I. was not a major box office or critical success, and the unorthodox combination of two vastly different directorial visions was considered by some critics a confusing failure unappealing to fans of both Spielberg and Kubrick. However, the film has a cult following among science-fiction fans[citation needed] and is considered by some to be one of Spielberg's finest films

1. Do you have any idea how stupid this is?

2. Spielberg filmed all of A.I. But you don't need behind-the-scenes info to know that. Just watch it, it's not hard to tell.

LMP:

A Clockwork Orange isn't too graphic at all. It's very disturbing in its themes, but you should be able to stomach it just fine. If you don't have any problems with Pulp Fiction, you'll be fine with this.

Well Eye's Wide Shut was not that great, it felt like a better version of Showgirls than anything. This ranks in below Full Metal Jacket. The First half of Full Metal Jacket was brilliant. The second half felt like any other Vietnam movie.

Sounds good, I'll probably end up torrenting because Mama LMP thinks it's too intense for me.

It has nothing to do with the quality of the film.

Just read what you said again:

How can you expect anyone to take you seriously when you discuss things this way?

Well how would you have put it then, because seriously, there have been reviewers in the past who have said similar things about other films.

Eye's Wide Shut is the weaker of Kubricks bunch. Is that better?
