My favorite 18 Steven Spielberg movies

With The BFG now providing a decent opportunity to take the kids to the movies (despite early reports that it's a dud), this is the perfect time to take a look back and rank the films of one of the modern movie masters, Steven Spielberg.

Drumroll ...

18. The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997)
17. "Kick the Can" from The Twilight Zone: The Movie (1983), with Scatman Crothers and Burgess Meredith in a joyous short that imagines the residents of a retirement home finding the fountain of youth.
16. A.I.: Artificial Intelligence (2001)
15. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008)
14. Amistad (1997)
13. Minority Report (2002)
12. Indiana Jones and the Lost Crusade (1989)
11. Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984)
10. Lincoln (2012)
09. Catch Me If You Can (2002)
08. Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1997)
07. Poltergeist (1982)
06. Jurassic Park (1993)
05. Saving Private Ryan (1998)
04. Schindler's List (1993)
03. Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)
02. E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial
01. Jaws (1975)

It's very difficult to pick Jaws over E.T., which is the one movie that makes me cry no matter how many times I've seen it. But then again, Jaws may be the scariest movie ever, and fear is a powerful thing. A case could be made that no director's best 10 films make up a stronger top 10 than these ones from Spielberg.


And then there are the many that I actually have to admit I've never seen (or possibly completely forgotten): 1941, Hook, The Adventures of Tintin, War of the Worlds, War Horse, The Sugarland Express, Empire of the Sun, The Terminal, Bridge of Spies, Munich, and The Color Purple. Of these, are there one or two I absolutely need to check out and possibly add to this list?
