    In a not so distant future, other actors will play the part of Indiana Jones, but with Harrison Ford's digital face. And the people will say, the film was meh but Harrison Ford was great as usual.

    I'm not into Jeans, but for women, a Jeans mini skirt is a classic.

    I once read that TV stations don't like to program movies that are older than 10 years because they attract less viewers. This seems to be my experience here in Belgium as well.

    Actually, Jaws has a slow-paced build-up. It really takes its time and seems more interested in the characters (and their interaction) than in spectacle, action or monsters.  And I don't think its style or tone are very 'today', but very akin to the filmmaking of the first part of the '70s, when filmmakers didn't think in terms of formulas or reaching the broadest possible audience. I actually feel respected not being treated as a juvenile when I watch Jaws, something I can't say of the average 'modern' blockbuster. So, no, not a modern-feeling movie to me. If they did a Jaws remake today, you would definitely see a different kind of movie.

    No, no Dolby B, C or DBX. Odd that it's not included.

    Are you tired of the complaints that your music sounds too good? In that case, make it sound like a cassette tape with three options: Pro, Home and Micro

    Steven Spielberg (anybody heard of him?) said that he made LAST CRUSADE, to apologise for TOD. He's also pointed out the many faults, in 1941, and he's gone on record saying that he still doesn't like HOOK.
    A director is entitled to not like their work.

    Yeah whatever was a big zeitgeist back then isn't necessarily a crowd pleaser now. Are studios even learning that?

    Don't you think that the "low fi", cheap stock suits the mood of the film? Maybe that's what Scorsese wanted? Nonetheless, it would be nice to have a 4K restoration, in time for its 45th birthday.

    It's estimated that Dark Fate will lose a 100 million dollars. R.I.P. The Terminator francise.
     
    Hopefully Avatar will suffer the same (dark) fate.

    Alex, you have to post pics like that inside a spoiler (eyeball icon) box and with a NSFW warning.  Many of us read this forum at our jobs from our work computers.  Thank you.

    I miss the John Williams that borrowed from the classical masters. His music today sounds so John Williamsy and I'm not sure if I like it.

    I expected this to be a 7/10 movie at least, but it ended up being a 6/10. It looks good, all the ingredients are there, and yet it's not that involving or fascinating. You know a movie has issues when costumes and battle scenes are the best part.
