    I'd love to see this again. It's been years...

    He thought on homeland, the big timber, the air thin and chill all the year long. Tulip poplars so big through the trunk they put you in mind of locomotives set on end. He thought of getting home and building him a cabin on Cold Mountain so high that not a soul but the nighthawks passing across the clouds in autumn could hear his sad cry. Of living a life so quiet he would not need ears. And if Ada would go with him, there might be the hope, so far off in the distance he did not even really see it, that in time his despair might be honed off to a point so fine and thin that it would be nearly the same as vanishing.

    And for a while there, I thought I was the only one who loved this movie.

    I understand that in the new dvd version, and all future versions of Empire of the Sun, Speilberg will be making some changes. Whenever Christian Bale, (then a child actor), is in a scene with Japanese soldiers holding guns, Speilberg will use GGI to digitally remove the guns held by the Japanese soldiers and replace them with walkie-talkies. He doesn't want to alarm anyone. [​IMG]

    That's just silly. Walkie talkies are frightening to a young child. The guns have been replaced by Reese's Pieces.
