And in your Monday Must-Read, Steven Spielberg talks to the Los Angeles Times about the 30th anniversary of “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” and the kind of film he set out to make.

Here’s the salient part of the story:

“It’s really startling,” Spielberg said. “Number one, it seems like it was only five years ago, it does not seem like 30 years ago. And the other great thing is I’m still close to everybody that made the movie. We’ve all watched each other grow up and older — older [not old] – and I love how that ‘Raiders’ family has stayed together for 30 years. We’re all still the closest of friends. ‘Raiders’ was the first movie where I actually shot the movie without thinking. I like to say that the line in ‘Raiders’ that most typifies the production of that movie was when Harrison says, ‘I’m making this up as I go along.’”
