Steven Spielberg's First Movie Amblin' is Borin'

You'd think that Steven Spielberg's first movie would be all about dinosaurs and aliens or something like that - but you'd be wrong. Very wrong: here's Amblin' (1968), the first film written and directed by Spielberg:

The film is a short story set during the hippy era of the late ’60s about a young couple who meet up in the desert, become friends, then lovers and make their way to a paradisiacal beach.

I always thought it was me, as that as what my Doctor said....but Spielberg? Boring.

They only film I liked of his is 'Empire of the Sun'.

I love dinosaurs and loved the effects in JPark but the plot, the acting, the moralising, oh please! ET was just turgid.

Oh wait, my Doctor is telling me I also liked 'The Goonies' so what would I know but I am not surprised that 'Amblin' is of boredom a citizen.
