So, since Dean's family are ok with this whole fiasco and they already conisider this as his "fourth film", then every other sound argument here seems pointless. I guess a "no4 sequel" with a spooky digital version of one of cinema's greatest actors "playing his new role" is quite "awesome" and has a place in 21st century's already fucked-up universe. I guess everything is "cool" with cgi and in case someone has a differnet opinion, he/she is by default old-fashioned and retro-addict. Of course the production will not let down the fans.
Well put, you got this topic fully covered. If money-wise is worth it, then it makes sense.
Spielberg's point is quite simple and valid : don't let the Moviegoing Experience be destroyed. But I guess now 10 Spielbergs won't be enough to stop the new avalanche. So long classic theatrical exhibition, so long film projectors. Digital has benefitted many of us independent filmmakers in many ways, but on the other hand it has damaged the way we used to experience films. The End.
