Siskel & Ebert: The Future of the Movies (1990)

George Lucas, Steven Spielberg and Martin Scorsese are interviewed in this special episode of Siskel & Ebert that talks about their past films as well as the future of their movies and movies in general.

I always loved watching this television show and watching this episode twenty-seven years after it was first shown was quite interesting. Of course, both Siskel and Ebert have passed away but the three directors are still with us and the topics they discuss are quite interesting. This includes them talking about their favorite shot from one of their films and there's a very interesting discussion about where their futures are going to go in the 90s.

Scorsese talks about him not being able to make a film like Spielberg would. One of the most interesting moments has Siskel somewhat grilling Spielberg about growing up and maybe taking on more adult pictures. Of course, this was a few years away from his first Oscar win for a very serious drama. Lucas also talks about the type of computer work that he is doing and discusses the possibility of more STAR WARS films.

There's even some discussion about film preservation and it's interesting to hear them talk about things that have came true as well as a few things that still haven't happened. If your'e a film buff you should really enjoy these interviews and especially seeing where things are today.
