Minority Report turns 20 this year - and it remains one of the best sci-fi films ever made.
I recently rewatched this and it feels like Spielberg is giving us a masterclass in how to propel plot forward.

The movie has so much more going for it than its basic premise and sci-fi future setting - that's what makes it work so incredibly well. At its heart it is a noir detective thriller and the way it weaves that with science fiction is perfect. It doesn't rely on the precognition as a https://xender.vip/ gimmick - but instead makes it central to more individual, personal questions about individual choice vs predeterminism.
At times Spielberg can be a little h
eavy handed with fatherhood themes (e.g. War of the Worlds) but here, again, it marries perfectly with the plot and feels more authentic.

I love everything about this movie.

Anything written by Philip K. Dick is going to age well.

More impressive is how Paul Verhoeven's flicks of the 80s and 90s have not only held up, but are even better today than they were when they came out. Most of all Robocop and Starship Troopers, especially the latter.
