Dear Steven Spielberg, first I just want to say I am a giganotosaurus (get it lol) my favorite scene is when the spinosaurus fights the T.rex. I had an idea that you should add mammals from the cenozoic era. here are a few examples like the marsupial lion, mammoth, titana boa. to name a few. Also if you don't like that idea just add a few dinosaurs from the phone game. pleas respond I think it's a great idea!

Just wanted you to know that no one in our family will see The Post because of Ms. Street's political comments during an awards show. We are sick and tired of listening to entertainment folks toss their opinions out at an inappropriate venue so our only recourse is to boycott any film she is in.

I just read an article concerning a polite, petite and soft-spoken woman named Yeonmi Park. Her story is the very fibrous root of what make good movies, soul-changers. She escaped from North Korea, made her torturous journey on to Mongolia, endured the torture of her family members, rape, trafficking and horrendous personal sacrifice. The North Korean officials refer to her as a "Poisonous Mushroom" due to her messages of possible freedom which are sent secretly back into North Korea. Before escaping from North Korea, the movie which changed her life was a smuggled copy of "Titanic". Yeonmi Park, now lives happily in the United States and with her message of hope, feminine strength and perseverance, she is a light for all of us.

Headteacher in London. Every time I watch your film I am reminded of the inhumanity of one man against another. We can never forget this tradgedy and I think your film perfectly helps us to respectfully remember what was and what should never be again. Thank you

I loved this movie. I watched it today with my grandkids. I loved all the references of movies and characters from the past. The only thing I did not like is the swearing. I wish kids movies had no swearing.
Keep making family movies. Thanks

For anyone who has read the young adult novels by Victoria Aveyard, the Red Queen Series strikes a blow to you adventurous side. Not only is this series action-packed, thrilling, and has a bit of romance, the series in general is original. I have heard (or read) of anything like it. As you get into the story, you fall in love with all the characters, especially the main character, Mare Barrow. The story is beautifully told and I, as well as countless other fans of the series want to see it hit the big screen.

Thank you for your patience. I hope you consider.

Hello :)
We need an Iron Giant remake,
The original was one of a kind, but an up to date film (Not fully animated) with the CGI we have now would be amazing.
Is that something you might be able consider in the future ?
I need it in my life 😂

I recently heard that Animaniacs might get a reboot in the near future on Hulu. I think that's great, but what I'd really like to see more of is that blue superhero with the red tights and the lightning hair. Of course, I'm talking about Freakazoid! That show was hilarious, and I think it's a shame that it was only on for two seasons. I feel like it had a lot of potential for further character development. For instance, at the end of episode one, they briefly mention a female version of Frakazoid called Freakazette. Why not introduce her into the show, somehow?

I just want to thank you for your creative genius! I have been watching your movies my whole life. I was the perfect E.T. Child fanatic. Your movies have given me laughter and tears throughout my years! Especially during my chemo fight. God bless you and yours!

Watched it for 3rd time yesterday. Would watch every few years but it truly is a complete emotional knockout. As for Ballard, I grieve that he is gone, no one can pat his back or blow smoke he probably never really wanted or needed anyway. The GUARDIAN reprint of his comments on the movie, ending so amazingly with "but in the end it was a movie". Yes, dear J.G., a movie. One of the most incredible "movie" experiences I've ever had, and for decades I've believed that Miranda Richardson's characters soul did go up to Heaven, and maybe Ballard actually did see it go. I will hold to that belief. Words pail complimenting this MASTERPIECE. I assume I have missed one just a good AND REAL by missing War Horse. But sadly the war horses of 6,000 years are a subject I can barely deal with and had to skip the movie to protect myself from insufferable pain. I guess I was not the only one. One minutes of the Brits shooting their English war horses escaping Dunkirk in Atonement) almost did me in. Steven it would be wonderful if you ever get bored and surf the net looking for what disembodied typists are saying about your movies. I hope you do.

My and son have now watched both theatrical uncut versions of Saving Private Ryan and Schindler's List. Many young people today have no idea of what Satan looks like when manifested through man. You have done it with both these films. Further, you have clearly demonstrated the costs of stopping that evil. I cry inside for the tragedy man is capable of - and am thankful for the blood poured out by those dedicated to stop it. Thank you - for educating my son like I could never - and may we never forget the pain and sacrifice.

I have seen Schindler's List a million times because I'm a World War II buff all through childhood to growing up. I became a WW2 author, and I've interviewed multiple veterans, but also multiple Holocaust Survivors. And I have seen Schindler's List a million times already.....

Just last week I traveled through Germany, Prague and Poland. I went to Krakow with an Auschwitz survivor, Eva Kor, and I stood at the gate, I stood in the barracks, I went to the scenes where you filmed Schindler's List, led by polish guides whose families dipped into this history...And I listened to the history that I already knew, but struck me for the first time like an emotional freight train because I was actually standing there.
As soon as I got home I watched Schindler's List again. This time it wasn't just a movie. It wasn't just a war movie that I would enjoy for being a historian. I had stood there, I had been there.
It was brilliant, and heartbreaking.
I was where you filmed it, and I was also in the camps that no longer exist. I was in Auschwitz where it's illegal to take anything away, you cannot pick up the dirt because it's not just dirt... It is human ashes.
So watching Schindler's List again upon my return, which by the way Eva Kor died three days after I left her, so watching this movie this time - they were not actors...
It was not a movie...
It was a visual portrayal of what happened, because we can't see what happened anymore.
Though I have seen it a million times, this time I could barely make it through it.

Thank you so very much for making this film.

Thank you for your bravery, and making something to stay with today's generation - despite deniers.
Thank you.

I was there. I saw it.
Your film gave it humanity.

Thank you.
Thank you.
Thank you....

The other day i was watching all the movies of Indiana Jones i have seen it many a times when i was very young now i am 47 i stll love it because it's got that elements of surprise in Indiana the mysterious ways of avoiding booby traps the courage to face adversity to move on even when the stakes and odds and also the circumstances he's against with which he faces head on charging full speed full throttle ahead into the storm like the eagles do the full charge on the horse galloping and Indiana on it is mesmirising this i write to you not as a man but the child inside me indicating to you that the horse and Indiana and the whip and the hat are an integral part of of this character words are not less please implement horses in your stories too as it wasn't there in the last one and bigger yourself to write an extraordinary story where a child somewhere and a fan in someplace holds his hands together praying he was in last crusade

I have been wanting to tell you this for a long time. I watched this movie in the Jewish section of Budapest, Hungary, where I was an English teacher. When the Russians announced that they had liberated the Prisoners from Auschwitz the entire audience burst out in a huge burst of laughter. As an American I wouldn’t have realized the irony of the situation if the Hungarian audience hadn’t laughed their heads off. (On top of that the buses had stopped running, I was living on the outskirts of Budapest and had to figure out another way home.) PS John Donovan gave an explanation and explained more about theBridge of Spies. I translated the German for him.

I doubt you'll ever read this, but on the slight chance that you do, it's worth my time. Just want to say thank you for Ready Player One. Just watched it and for reasons I can't even explain, I enjoyed this more than any movie I've seen in the last 5 years. It really brought my spirit alive on a day that I needed it most. And while I'm at it, thank you for a lifetime of amazing movies - I've seen every one you've directed and produced and I love them all. Here's to you Steven.
