Also apparently the Premiere was seriously glitched, completely crashing repeatedly and Speilberg remarked it was the most anxiety ridden moments in his life. The audience did give it a standing ovation.
The more I ponder Spielberg the more I believe my theory that everyone else was wrong about hiw Kubrick would have done the ending, including and especially Spielberg.
My Kubrickintuition, which is for whatever reason, always dogs me, tells me, that when wrestling with AI, he thought Spielberg would have given it a happy ending, where Pinocchio would become a real boy. And now ironic, that Spielberg's ending was so bleak. The more others disagree with this the more I am sure. He wanted Spielberg because he was afraid of his own bleak ideation about the future.
I find it interesting that Elon Musk has warned that "AI is more dangerous then the Nuclear threat."
On another note, I watched the new and final, Season 5 of "Bates Motel." yesterday. Very excellent and appropriate. Really fleshed out an end of the story, far better then the Psycho sequels. I think Hitchcock would have loved it.
