It's just not even remotely the most interesting WW2 movie I've seen. Not much of a fan of Spielberg's cheap & schmaltzy way of tugging at heartstrings.

Superior in my opinion: The Pianist, Der Untergang, A Woman in Berlin, The Counterfeiters. There's more, of course.

To me, Spielberg lost his ability to make worthwhile movies very early in his career.

Big Think
Published on Jan 2, 2019

We're finally here! We've been counting down the 10 most popular videos of 2018. This is #1...

- Hey flat Earthers, it's time to put your theory to bed once and for all! "There are so many proofs that the Earth is round, it's difficult to know where to start. And it's not okay to think that the Earth is flat; this is not a viable argument," says NASA astronomer Michelle Thaller.
Thaller explains three observable proofs that instantly debunk flat-Earth theory with irrefutable evidence of the Earth's round, curvaceous, gloriously spherical shape.

- The ancient Greeks figured out we were living on a sphere over 2,000 years ago, and there are things you can do to prove that the Earth is indeed round—just go to a body of water and look at ships or boats on the horizon with binoculars. Watch the video for the details!
You can follow Michelle Thaller on Twitter at @mlthaller.

- Dr. Michelle Thaller is an astronomer who studies binary stars and the life cycles of stars. She is Assistant Director of Science Communication at NASA. She went to college at Harvard University, completed a post-doctoral research fellowship at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) in Pasadena, Calif. then started working for the Jet Propulsion Laboratory's (JPL) Spitzer Space Telescope. After a hugely successful mission, she moved on to NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC), in the Washington D.C. area. In her off-hours often puts on about 30lbs of Elizabethan garb and performs intricate Renaissance dances. For more information, visit NASA.

Another incredibly wrong hot take from Shazam. Contrarian just to be contrarian. Schindler's List is definitely among the finest holocaust and Spielberg films.

Funny that he embraces The Pianist too since it has very similar pitfalls.

Sure, I'm just being contrarian for... some reason?

Step 1: Make everybody hate you by having the wrong opinion.
Step 2: ???.
Step 3: Profit!

I think Polanski's movies are generally vastly more interesting than Spielberg's. Both are very accessible film makers, but Spielberg was best when he was making movies like Jaws and E.T.
I don't like a single one of Spielberg's serious dramatic movies.

But yeah, the Pianist is also somewhat melodramatic at times, but I think it's far more involving and feels more grounded in reality in terms of the behavior of the characters.

Not really tbh.
