Eagle, I agree that Star Wars is hugely influential, George gets the credit for that and like Joe said on the article Star Wars takes a back seat to no one. I do however think that Spielberg’s amount of classics like ET, Jaws, Close Encounters, etc and his executive producing of stuff like Gremlins, Goonies etc can catch up to Star Wars on the pop culture side of things. I guess I see it, too keep with the boxing theme Joe has going on. One guy has an extremely huge right hand that can deliver a knockout blow at any time but the other fighter while not having the same power has defensive skills, speed and footwork that can keep him in the fight and maybe get him the win via decision.

Joe, I was gonna send you a messege but for some reason the site wouldn't let me. Anyways, I checked out your animation videos, good stuff man. I liked the one about the unemployment, made me LOL at the end there. Also, thanks for taking a look at what I wrote last week, made the changes you mentioned.

Joe, yeah, Spaceballs has its moments, but over all is pretty bad. But I had to throw that in there just for funny sake! LOL!

James Cameron kicks them both in the balls and walks off with the title.

hanso, this site is finicky at times, but thanks for trying to message me. Glad you enjoyed my animations. The unemployment one is my favorite so far. I enjoyed your article. You know your stuff, make excellent points, and you've got enough natural humor to keep things interesting. Looking forward to reading more of them.

EagleManiac, eeeeeeehhhhhhhh... that movie makes me want to hurt myself.   ;)

Spielberg, Lucas, Scorcese, Copola and Stone have all bowed down before Akira Kurosawa. Star Wars was a direct rip off of Hidden Fortress.

Probably not the best place to admit it but, I'll take David Lean and Kubrick over Spielberg any day. But then I prefer Wagner to Michael Jackson too.

Well then HANSO my post is valid if you think Spielberg is even close to the same kind of impact that Lucas has made. If i was to put a scale of pop culture impact...Lucas would be #1 and Spielburg would be maybe a #15 to #10 at the very highest. I would put Chevy Chase over Spielburg in a test of pop culture titans in all honesty.

People reference the Vacation movies and Caddyshack more then they do Jaws or Close Encounters. Sure Indy is big in there..but again most of the credit there as far as the world and story would have to go to Lucas.

I guess for me, Stone, Kubrics, Nolan, Coppolla, Attenborough or scorsese are equal to speilberg or Lucas. they are all great.

It's not fair to pit any directors against any other because they each have their own style and vision, Mel Brooks had a specific vision which was great but obviously, would not be the same for a regular movie.

No, it wasn’t a valid post because you were talking about something I hadn’t said. If you reread my post you will see it’s not valid, it might be valid if you were talking to someone else. Where you? If you were then I apologize, but I saw Hanso on it so I figured you were talking to me.

If you got Chevy Chase over Steven Spielberg, then I have nothing left to say you man.
