I agree. Anything that Spielberg gets his hands on seems to make things contain a slimy excretion. It's like a Hollywood hex with him (and Dreamworks). I'm still waiting to see that film studio sink to obliteration as a result of being so close to bankruptcy in 2003-5. That they're still around makes me wonder how and why they've managed to stay afloat in a recession that's effected such large companies as major financial institutions and loaning organizations.
