I saw the Stephen Spielberg-produced Super 8 the other day (and yes, you can follow it without having watched The Super or 6 intervening films), watched it all the way through the climax, where the alien get in his spaceship and heads home. Spielberg, one may remember, is the man who directed Close Encounters of the Third Kind, where at the climax, the aliens take off in their spaceships and head home. And also E.T. the Extraterrestrial, where the climax was when the alien got on board the spaceship and headed home. And Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, where the climax is when the aliens take their spaceship on home.
I still haven’t seen his film Munich… and now I’m afraid to.
