Proving that he does blockbuster better than anyone else, Jurassic Park is pure entertainment from start to finish.

 

4 – Schindler’s List
Schindler’s List is a brutal, personal film that finally secured Spielberg a well deserved academy award

 

3 – E.T. The Extra Terrestrial
Years later ET still packs a huge emotional punch and lives of generations after it’s original release.  

2 – Jaws
Jaws is one of the best horror films ever made and even now, years later, the iconic film lives on in references from everything from TV to film.

 

1 – Raiders of the Lost Ark
Creating one of the most iconic characters in film history is not easy, putting them in a trilogy that’s nearly perfect is even harder.  And yes… trilogy. There is no crystal skull.

Best Film of 2011: Hugo

Best Film of 2011: Hugo

Best & Worst Quick Review
Phil’s Quick Capsule Review
Film of the year.  Period.  Hugo is a delight, a film for all ages by a director at the top of his game. Funny, exciting and with real heart, Hugo is a rare beast in that it entertains both adults and children without patronising or pandering to  either.  Oh… and 3D that doesn’t make you want to scream.  Must watch.  
 
Best bit: Scorsese Recreating the films
Rent, Borrow, Buy, Stream: Buy
IMDB Rating: 9/10
If you liked this try: Kundun (9/10); ET (9/10); Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows Part 1 (7/10)
