Your probably right, although T2 had a perfect balance of humour as well when the film called for it. Even Aliens had that to a very small extent, though only in the first act.

I won't even talk about True Lies. Enjoyable as that film is.

That said, I just watched Schindler's List tonight for the first time in over a year or so, and I laughed out loud several times that I literally shocked myself. Is that a bad sign.

If it was when Schindler breaks down at the end, "If I only could have saved one more!" you had every right to laugh at that shameless, phony, maudlin bullshit.

Or maybe you laughed when the girl with the pink jacket ran across the screen. Oh my god, he's trying to be artsy!

Spielberg, Man With a Movie Hammer.

Actually I didn't. Though I did find Schindler's breakdown to be a poor bit of filmmaking indeed. Lame.

I didn't have any problems with the girl in the red coat. I actually thought it was rather effective. Yeah he's being a little artsy, but I sort of worked this time.

My only genuinely big problem with the film though was the last coloured segment. Totally unneccesary.

Are you talking about the survivors placing stones on his grave?

Yeah.

And I understand why Spielberg put it in the film, I just don't like it there.

Would you guys have liked a Scorcese-directed Schindler's List better than a Spielberg one?

Other than the Schindler breakdown at the end, I think it's Spielberg's best movie of his career so far.

I have a feeling A Scorsese-directed Schindler's List would have been about on par with Spielberg's.

Scorsese's probably wouldn't have been as subdued or subtle throughout most of the film, but it also probably would have had a more appropriate ending to it. So I say it balances out.

True.

And then we'd all be missing out.

And speaking of Scorsese, I watched Gangs of New York again the other night, and it made me think how un-Scorsese a lot of that film really is. I wonder what the deal was. Maybe he had just been working so long on that picture that he started to lose focus? I dunno.

T2's humor is there, mainly because of how stiff Schwartzenegger is throughout and supercrazy Sarah Conner. Definitely not the same humor for Spidey (a Schwartzenegger Doc Ock would've been lame, but never ever as bad as Mr. Freeze.)

True Lies does get points though for making Tom Arnold likable.

With the new advances in Performance capture, Micheal Beihn can now play every character in every movie.

Finally, the world shall be at peace.

And no one will ever blink again.

Add some Bill Paxton to that and now we're all in good shape.

Back to Batman, Batman Returns is severely underrated. Discuss.

Batman Returns is awesome. Just look at that cast. Totally bat-shit crazy movie too (pun-intended).

Army of penguins with rockets on their backs? Yes, please.

Michelle Pfieffer at the apex of her hotness , too. It could be the only superhero movie with 2 villains that actually works.

Plus, Christopher Walken plays an absolute dirtbag.

I only wish the Keaton/Burton combo did Forever.
