Just a shame he's increasingly fallen into the trap all great directors seem to, of losing the power of editing and forgeting the importance of pacing. Still this would be fab, but at the moment it's just pure wish fulfilment.
That's a phenomenon that I call "Spielberging". See "Jurassic Park II: The Lost World", "A.I. Artificial Intellgience", and "War of the Worlds" to see what I mean. Each of those films needed to be at least half an hour shorter.
