Steven Spielberg in 30 Iconic Shots

I have to say I was a little disappointed when I saw the title ‘Spielberg in 30 shots’ and it wasn’t a video of Steven Spielberg just wasted of 30 shots of Jager. Although after watching this video, I must say, this guy has got chops. Should should keep an eye out for him, I think he’s going places. Enjoy. p.s. I like the choice of the score from ‘Hook’ for this video. One of his more underrated musical scores. Advertisements

‘Jaws’ Celebrates 40th Anniversary With Return To Theaters

Turner Movie Classics in association with Universal Pictures has announced the re-release of ‘Jaws’ in theaters on June 21st and 24th to celebrate the movie’s 40th anniversary. Over the span of my life, I have probably watched Jaws around 20-25 times.

Sharknados, that’s the real threat. To get you ready to see the film on the big screen here is the original trailer. Afterwards you can watch Steven Spielberg get snubbed by the Oscars. Enjoy!

But this article is about Pinky, Elmrya & The Brain…which was a real show. Pinky & The Brain started as the genetically enhanced Acme lab mice in Steve Spielberg’s Animaniacs, a show that spawned many spin-off’s. The duo became so popular with their comedic back and forth (Pinky: “Gee, Brain, what do you want to do tonight?” The Brain: “The same thing we do every night, Pinky—try to take over the world!”) that they had a half-hour all to themselves in 1995. They lasted 4 seasons and 65 episodes. Sadly the Brain never succeeded in taking over the world…he came close though. For some strange reason the show was “retooled” in 1998 as Steven Spielberg Presents Pinky, Elmyra & the Brain (originally titled Pinky & the Brain Meets Elmyra, The Continuing Adventures of Pinky & the Brain, and …
