Jean-Luc Godard and Alejandro Jodorowsky agree with Braden on Spielberg's merits.

While I like Jodorowsky (and dislike Godard), I have to say it's silly to think that he's ruining cinema when he revolutionized different genres.  Just because they don't agree with his vision doesn't mean he's ruining it.  I do think newer Spielberg has gone soft, but Schindler's List and Munich are some of the best films made.

Didn't Jodorowsky direct that piece of crap The Holy Mountain? Yeah, I have zero interest in his opinions on anything.

I much prefer Santa Sangre.

Have not seen that one. All I know is that between Holy Mountain and Knight of Cups, I'm done with Tatum recommendations for a good long time.
Cold... :\

Let's be real... Tatum is on the lower echelon of users whose opinion I trust.

The man liked Swiss Farty Man more than Silence. While I respekt his onion, it's clear our tastes don't align.

Peter Jackson had to film new scenes for The Lovely Bones because audiences at test screenings wanted more violence and suffering and complained that a death scene wasn't agonizing enough.

But the rest of the movie was plenty agonizing.

Steven Spielberg, a fan of the Inspector Gadget cartoon from the 1980's, considered executive producing Disney's live-action 1999 film adaptation through his production company Amblin Entertainment, but couldn't due to being busy with other projects

In 1993, Steven Spielberg announced he would serve as executive producer on Disney's sci-fi comedy Flubber, written and produced by John Hughes, and have the film released under the Amblin Entertainment banner. But he decided not to go through with it because his only choice for the lead role, Robin Williams, was at the time in a bitter fallout with Disney and refused to be in the film. Hughes' first choice for the lead role was always Williams. He lined up other choices including Christopher Lloyd, Jeff Goldblum, John Lithgow, Tim Allen, and Patrick Stewart. As soon as Williams made peace with the studio, Hughes immediately cast him.

In 2002, Cartoon Network was developing a live-action Samurai Jack film that would be released by New Line Cinema, but Genndy Tartakovsky confirmed the project's cancellation in 2006.

A set decorator on the John Hughes comedy Planes, Trains & Automobiles reportedly spent five months furnishing a seven-room set for Steve Martin's character's house, repeatedly asking for but not receiving directorial feedback, and was then fired by Hughes because he felt that the house had too many tchotchkes in it.

In a scene from John Hughes' final film as a director, Curly Sue, the title character eats pizza. During filming, the pizza was only lukewarm. Worse, after numerous takes, the prop master had run out of cheese pizza and had to substitute sausage. Because the gag wasn't working out correctly, the prop master was then fired by Hughes.

John Hughes' comedy script Career Opportunities was a project he didn't feel like directing, so he hired Bryan Gordon to make his feature-length directorial debut with the film. When the initial results turned out unsatisfactory to him, Hughes reshot several scenes, and when that didn't work, he threw tantrums and demanded that Universal remove his writing and producing credits from the film as he didn't want them to sell a bad film under his name. However, the studio refused, telling him that it doesn't matter if what's being sold is good or bad since his name is a selling point.

Black Cat Bone, a modernized retelling of Tom Sawyer's Huckleberry Finn, was a John Hughes project that was supposed to begin filming on March 16, 1992 but it never got off the ground.

John Hughes sold a script, Grisbys Go Broke, a comedy about a wealthy family that loses all their money and is forced to spend Christmas in poverty, in 2002 as a writing and producing project. By the time of his death in 2009, the script still hadn't been made into a film, but Paramount was rumored to be interested in it during the wave of nostalgia and sadness caused by Hughes' untimely passing. Paramount opted not to purchase the script.

Early drafts of the script for Jem and the Holograms included the holographic characters and atmosphere featured in the original animated series, but these were removed from the final draft in favor of a more grounded approach.

In 2006, Paramount obtained the film rights to The Smurfs and were planning to make an adaptation with Nickelodeon. It was going to be an epic comedic fantasy, described as a cross between The Lord of the Rings and The Princess Bride. However, it was cancelled and Sony then bought the rights.

James Franco was in talks with Christopher Nolan to play Arthur in Inception but was ultimately unavailable due to scheduling conflicts, so Joseph Gordon-Levitt was cast instead.

According to director Jonathan Liebesman, producer Michael Bay found the original cut of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to be too dark and dreary and ordered reshoots to put more comedy and homages to the cartoon and comics into the final cut of the film.
