  6. I ended up having a lot less time this month to watch films than I originally thought, so I only ended up getting around to watching 3 Spielberg films that I hadn't seen before: Adventures of Tintin, Empire of the Sun, and A.I. The former two films were pretty solid but A.I. blew me away by how great it ended up being. Definitely one of the Berg's most underrated films and it instantly became a Top 10 favorite in his filmography for me. 1. E.T.: The Extra Terrestrial - A+ 2. Schindler's List - A+ 3. Raiders of the Lost Ark - A+ 4. Catch Me If You Can - A+ 5. A.I.: Artificial Intelligence - A 6. Jaws - A 7. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade - A 8. Jurassic Park - A 9. Saving Private Ryan - A 10. Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom - A- 11. Lincoln - A- 12. Empire of the Sun - B+ 13. The Adventures of Tintin - B+ 14. Amistad - B 15. War Horse - B 16. The Lost World: Jurassic Park - B- 17. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull - C+ 18. Hook - C 19. The BFG - C 20. War of the Worlds - C 21. Ready Player One - C-

  8. I'm planning to watch more of his films throughout the month so that's why I haven't submitted a list yet.
  9. I'm mostly going off my Letterboxd review here (and expanding on it as well) but I thought this was a decently fun time. Not great or anything but still a fun enough time. I've never read Roald Dahl's original book and I only just recently watched the Anjelica Huston film from 1990 so my experience with this source material is very limited. I know that a lot of people consider the 90s version to be far superior to this version, and while I would agree with them that Roeg's version is probably the better film, the fact that they essentially tell pretty much the same exact story (minus a few key differences, mainly the setting/time period and the ending) made me see the two versions on equal ground. While I do side more with the 90s version's preference for practical effects and make-up, I think the remake's designs of the witches are a different enough interpretation to stand on their own. I've seen a lot of people criticizing this film for its special effects as being dated and eerily reminiscent of Zemeckis' motion capture films from the 2000s (I'll throw Welcome to Marwen in the mix there as well). I think the main difference between those films and The Witches is that, while the former group of films were going for a more realistic approach that resulted in a heavily uncanny valley feel to them, the latter feels appropriately over-the-top and cartoony with the mostly zany tone and vibe that its going for. There are some moments that border on the uncanny valley, mainly with the mice characters (with Chris Rock's mouse design in particular looking a tad wonky), but when you have Anne Hathaway pretty much channeling Bill Skarsgard's Pennywise and a fairly fantastical storyline driving everything, it kind of put things into perspective for me and allowed me to be far more forgiving of the film than I otherwise would be. I think what mainly holds the film together for me is both Octavia Spencer and Anne Hathaway's performances (similar to how Mai Zetterling and Anjelica Huston were the highlights of the original film for me). Spencer's character just radiates a ton of needed warmth and delivers a lot of the film's well-needed comedy, while Hathaway is an awesomely over-the-top and delightfully hammy blast as the Grand-High Witch. Both actresses brought a lot to their roles and, for me, were the main reason the film was heavily elevated from simply being a competent but mediocre film to an enjoyably watchable feature. I'll admit that I don't think this is a perfect film, but I found there was a lot of good, simple fun to be had here. It has story problems but to be fair to the film, those problems extend to the 90s feature as well – mainly that it takes halfway through the film (right around the midpoint) for things to actually get interesting. But I think the film gets by mostly on the charm of its two leading actresses and its zaniness. I also think it succeeds in matching the first film's disturbing factor, and I imagine that it will also scar a new generation of children who are exposed to this version. Though I certainly could be very wrong in that regard. B-/C+
