Why My Head Will Probably Explode Tonight

Tonight, I'm going with my roommate, viewer 14,000, to a screening of the new biopic "Lincoln." Wait for it...before the show there's a live satellite Q&A with Steven Spielberg and Daniel Day-Lewis. Ahh what's that...wait a minute...something's happening? AHHHHHHH...oh...there go my brains.
Without getting to far into it, I've been obsessed with Steven Spielberg since I was about 8 years old.  Jurassic Park was the first PG-13 movie I was allowed to watch, I've been Indiana Jones for Halloween and in 7th grade I gave a presentation about Spielberg's restrained use of CGI  after seeing Minority Report.  This is a big moment.  Add to this the fact that Daniel Day-Lewis is a crazy method acting  maverick, and being able to sort-of talk face-to-face with them is almost too much to handle.

I've been trying to think of questions worthy of these two goliath's for the past two weeks and the best I can come up with is, "Why are there plans to make Jurassic Park 4 AND Indiana Jones 5?" Hearing that  those are in development makes me think that Spielberg hasn't actually seen Jurassic Park III or Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skulls. Even though he helped produce them both. Yikes.

What do you think ThreeifbyStrikers? If your had the chance, what would you ask some of the most revered  living icons in film?

  1. It would be interesting to see what Daniel Day Lewis would say if you asked him who was a better director working today, PTA, or Steven Spielberg? He'd have to answer diplomatically, especially because he'd be sitting next to Spieberg, but I'm betting that deep down he's a PTA guy.
