    Rules number one: Hate women. sick. I thought he was a better man before he made those comments about wonder woman and the director which happened to be a woman.

    George Lucas should have followed this advice, Merchandising, CGI that would have all come instead he is ‚winning‘ with only 400 Million in Net Worth over Steven but Spielbergs work is immortal and my hero George Lucas has become a laughing stock and Rightly so, he was too soon to follow the Billionaire cult and not his Golden Intuition but his Legacy can be saved.

    I hate Spielberg!!! Because he made money with his despicable movies JAWS by telling harmful things on Sharks! It was so easy to make „sensational“ with those poor species now hugely threatened. Spielberg never say a world to help Sharks or support Biodiversity ! Spielberg is partly with China responsible on the damages made to sharks today!

    1) Be a great storyteller. 2) listen to the whispers. I spent the last 22 years of my life in the technical world, but I always had a yearning to be a writer. When I went to school the first time around, my parents thought writing was too unstable. now in my 40s, got my BA in English and now getting my MA in scriptwriting. I am going to be a writer; I listened to that whisper.

  24. ChiliConQueso sagt:

    Interesting that this is quoted almost verbatim in The Land Before Time (which Spielberg produced) by Littlefoot’s mother, and in The BFG.

  25. MrRichlisa sagt:
