This is all just my opinion, of course. I've got nothing against him, really, he just hasn't made a film on my top 20 list.
A like both of those films, but Schindler's List reduced me to sobs, and, like Donald Trump, I don't cry . I just like that type of schmaltz. I cried buckets watching many schmaltzy, idealistic movie musicals: Camelot, Man of La Mancha, Carousel. Then there was Stella Dallas. I don't cry, but I sure cried then.
