That the fact is wrong doesn't make me enjoy it less because the author didn't know any better. Spielberg can't use that excuse. Spielberg knew, or should have known, that germs will not stop an alien invasion. That he chose to ignore that fact took me out of the movie and caused me to dislike his film.

Now, how does changing the setting of the story to 1898 somehow alter the bolded part? Specifically, how can altering the setting of the film change your perception and suspension of disbelief? Spielberg would still know basic germ theory, as would you. The fact that some people inside the imaginary world set in 1898 would not should not in any way change the physical reality. Would you, for example, find no fault with a presumably realistic film about Roman gladiators if all of them were able to jump 30 feet in the air simply because the laws of gravitation weren't understood at that time?

My goodness, you're thick. Changing the setting isn't the determinative factor. Following the story as originally written is the determinative factor. You really like bolding things that have no relation to the actual topic, don't you?

While the new can't hold his liquor "why" is a lot of fun, it's kinda nice having the old one back.

About to watch Aeon Flux.

I have a grave feeling I may regret this decision.

Holy shit, people are still paying attention to why? Hmmm.

Anyway, I'm a little embarrassed to say I'm only now watching The King's Speech. Wow! And I love the cleverness of the title.

I forgot to add the add the parallels to Mrs. Brown, another movie I love, that are so apparent.

i still cant put my finger on it, but there was something very special about that movie, imo. i think that the characters really were perfect, especially sheen, playing frost. he brought something to the table in that performance that was really special.
