Here is my opinion:
- "Schindler's List" -great, masive, powerfull film about      Holocaust..realy moveing..strong.
- "Munich" -realy cought my attention, great acting, story, photography by Kamisnki,......great movie.
- "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial" - childhood memory, but still after many years great expirience every time I watch it...there are no such strong-emotional films this days...

worth mention:
- "Empire of the Sun"
- "Minoryty Report"
- "Terminal"

This is hard, I still have to watch Schindler's List soon, but the one's I saw has to be:

1. Jaws
2. Saving Private Ryan
3. and to add some critism, War of the Worlds.

1. Jaws
2. Raiders of the Lost Ark
3. Jurassic Park

'Course... my list will change based on which films I've seen most recently, except for Jaws.  It'll always be numero uno.

in no particular order

Indy trilogy.(3 films I know but they are all great but if you was to push me for one it would be Raiders)
Duel-Classic Adult Spielberg
Saving Private Ryan- First brought the real reality of war home
Schindlers List- I could not imaging any other director making this film
Munich- The best film he has made for some time!!!

Sorry is that to many

Schindler's List - A heartfelt movie based during horrific events.

Jaws - The first ever blockbuster and a tension filled movie.  Bruce has to be one of the most celebrated characters ever.

E.T. - I grew up with this one so I'm adding it there.  Otherwise this spot would have been occupied by Saving Private Ryan.

Holy c**p, Amistad *was* bad. It's as if he had a great cast and story, but the technical crew and writer just pissed it all away.

The 3 best? I won't quibble about how to define "Best" but like, is it his best or your favourite?


5 best (I'm cheating but I mean, it's Spielberg...):

1. Schindler's List
2. Saving Private Ryan
3. Munich
4. Indiana Jones Trilogy (One big movie, I don't care)
5. (Tie) Close Encounters of the Third Kind/ E.T./ AI/ Minority Report/Jaws/ Jurassic Park

5 favourite (in no order):
1. AI
2. Indiana Jones Trilogy
3. Minority Report
4. Jaws
5. ET/Close Encounters/Jurassic Park


Yes, I am a BIG Spielberg fan Happy
But really though, Spielberg can't make that bad a movie (I say after saying I'm a BIG fan, but I find it to be true) , even his "bad" ones are entertaining and worth a watch every so often.

To Tony:
"The Terminal" is ok, not the greatest but worth a watch.

"1941" is a Zemeckis movie, Spielberg's only real involvement was direction, it's all Zemekis cast (people from "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" and so forth, screenplay written by him, etc.) but it was good, I got it for Christmas this year and I'm glad I did.
