minority opinion

A quiet weekend, though I did go out to see Minority Report last night. Pretty amazing stuff, really surprising for Spielberg. As I said before, it’s not the first time he’s reacted to his own “cute” films by digging in deeper and getting nasty – that was a factor in both Poltergeist and Schindler’s List. It did have a bit of a happy ending, but so did the original cinema version of Blade Runner, the other benchmark adaptation of a Philip K Dick story. (Total Recall is great, but a major departure from the original story.) I wouldn’t be too surprised to see a Director’s Cut in a few years, with a bleaker ending.
