    It has its moments but it's clearly more Spielberg than Hooper, for better or worse. 3 years 4 months ago

    I'm certainly not an expert on cinematography, but even I noticed a fair number of flaws in the movie. Still, I can certainly see how it was great for its time and how it's become so iconic. It's definitely superior to many of the horror movies of recent years. 2 years 6 months ago
