Forums - Movies Discussion - Steven Spielberg's best film?


I think the best is...

Schindler's List 11 22.92%
Saving Private Ryan 3 6.25%
Jaws 7 14.58%
Raiders of the Lost Ark 6 12.50%
Munich 2 4.17%
ET 1 2.08%
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade 2 4.17%
Jurassic Park 10 20.83%
The Colour Purple 0 0%
Other 6 12.50%

Schindler's List and Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade for two very different reasons. It's actually hard to choose cause so many of his movies are so extremely good. I even love Hook

My ranking for the ones I've seen:

1. Jurassic Park
2. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
3. Raiders of the Lost Ark
4. The Lost World: Jurassic Park
5. The Goonies
6. E.T.
6. Ready Player One
8. Lincoln
9. War Horse
10. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
11. Hook
12. Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

I've also seen A.I. and Saving Private Ryan, but it was so long ago that I remember very little about them.

The Goonies was directed by Richard Donner.

My bad, was looking at the wikipedia list and apparently he was only the writer and 2nd unit director on it, not the main director, though Sean Astin said that Steven did so much of the directing on it that they were practically co-directors. 

Of this list I like Raiders of the lost ark the most. Another really good movie is of course Schindler's List Problem is that I saw this movie after I've seen The Pianist, which actually copied some really intense scenes from Schlinder's List. So when I saw Schindler's List, therefore these scenes did not feel as intense as they could have been.

But my number one would be A.I., which is in my top 10 of favourite movies all time (maybe in my top 5 as well).

Pretty much the same for me. Shindler's List won in the end for me due to it's ending, with real holocaust survivors depositing flowers to Schindler's grave, which is very powerful and makes me cry every time I see it.

It’s hard to select only one as almost all of the movies he made until the mid 2000s have a significant importance in our modern culture.

But if I have to choose it’s best, Schindler’s List come on top.

I was a kid that loved Dinosaurs,had lots of dino figurines to play with and was 9 years old when i went to see this movie in cinema.
It was so awesome.(and scary)

A Robert Zemeckis film, only financially backed by Spielberg with no directorial input from him.

Schindler's List takes it for me. From the direction to the performances to the cinematography, its just as masterpiece of cinema and one of the best films ever made in my opinion.

That said, Saving Private Ryan, Munich, Raiders, and Jaws are all absolutely amazing too, and I also thoroughly enjoyed many others from Jurassic Park to ET to Ready Player One.

Overall he's probably my all time favourite director, I can't think of any other who has so many films I loved.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Raiders is my favorite because it's the most fun but Jaws is arguably his best movie.
