1. Duel
2. Jaws
3. AI
4. Raiders Of the Lost Ark
5. Minority Report

Not meant as a threadcrap, but Spielberg's never been one of my favorite directors. However, I still think his early work has endured.

and I guess, Jaws.

I'd put ET up there, but I haven't seen it in awhile.

a lot of his other stuff, are frankly quite pretentious, but entertaining.

1. Jaws (just BARELY edging out...)
2. Raiders of the Lost Ark

then there's a big dip in interest, and finally we arrive at
3. Jurassic Park
4. A.I.
5. Catch Me if You Can

I thought Minority Report was utter crap, and Schindlers List just more manipulative Spielberg shmaltz.

Still, for Jaws and Raiders alone, the man belongs in the pantheon.

In no order:
schindler's list
minority report
raiders of the lost ark
jaws
jurassic park

now if the ending of minority report was syndow actually killing cruise to prove pre-crime was right it truly would be his #1 masterpiece.

1. Minority Report
2. Jurassic Park
3. Artificial Intelligence
4. Schindler's List
5. Last Crusade or Raiders... not sure which I "enjoyed" more.

SPR was good as well, as were most of his flicks (was never big into JAWS or E.T.)

1. JAWS --- One of the only films that still scares the sh*t out of me. This film defined Spielberg to me. Kudos to John Williams as well. The score is one of the best ever.

2. Raiders --- One of the defining adventure films. Another great score by John Williams.

3. ET --- Childhood fav.

4. Schindler's List --- Can't wait for this on dvd!

5. Saving Private Ryan --- One of the greatest films depicting war. The handheld camera scenes were incredible.

I have not seen Duel or CMIYC yet. No matter how many times I watch Minority Report it just feels like a good remake of Time Cop. Sorry. :lol:

sorry but Schindler's List is the 3rd most overrated movie made, EVER behind Godfather 1 & 2, all 3 are fine films but still IMO not near as good as they are given gredit for.

Why do you think "Schindler's List" is overrated?

Because it's black and white? Or is it too slow paced of a movie for you?
