Even though I don’t love every single one of his movies, Steven Spielberg will always be one of my favorite directors. He was one of the key figures in making me a die-hard movie fan. His worldwide influence is undeniable, he shaped Hollywood in the modern era, and he’s been going strong for decades (there are going to be so many Jaws retrospective pieces next year for the film’s 40th anniversary). This fall, Universal will release a new 8-film Blu-ray collection of his work. The Steven Spielberg Director’s Collection will include digitally remastered versions of Duel and The Sugarland Express (both their first time on Blu-ray, and the first-ever widescreen presentation for Duel in the U.S. and Canada) as well as the Blu-ray debuts for 1941 (theatrical and extended versions) and Always. The set also includes Jaws, E.T. The Extra Terrestrial, Jurassic Park, and The Lost World: Jurassic Park.
