    really is not his movie, so he can't fuck with it.

    Spielberg usually seems to know better.

      Digitally removing the guns and replacing them with walkie-talkies. No, neither he nor Lucas gets a pass from me on that.

      But wait! Maybe there is hope for Steven after all...

      Even legendary directors make mistakes, and Steven Spielberg is no exception. In an upcoming Blu-ray release of "E.T.," it appears the DreamWorks maestro has made good on a promise to undo one of his more regrettable decisions.

      Spielberg digitally edited rifles out of the hands of policemen chasing down Elliot and E.T. and replaced them with walkie talkies. Fans revolted, and Spielberg himself eventually admitted he regretted the decision.

      That's from an article in May 2012 so he's changed his mind about the whole thing. So credit where it's due, thank you Mr. Spielberg, thank you very much.

      To me progress is not so much a goal as it is a process and I believe it will not follow a straight course. Remember, the drops of water that form the river may not take the shortest path but they will still reach the ocean.
