Phil’s Top 5… Steven Spielberg Movies!

Other Cr*p Top 5

Each week Phil, from Phil’s Quick Capsule Review, takes a look at a different movie or TV related Top Five.  This time out: Steven Spielberg movies!

 

Close but no cigar: Saving Private Ryan, Minority Report, War of the World

 

 

5 – Jurassic Park
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.

Close but no cigar: Die Hard With A Vengeance, Mission Impossible 3,Back To The Future Part 3, Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade, Harry Potter and The Prisoner Of Azkaban, The Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King

 

5 – Army Of Darkness
Army of Darkness is amazing.  It’s camp, silly, funny… it was and still is everything I wanted from a sequel to Evil Dead 2!

 

4 – Star Wars VI:  Return of The Jedi
Yes it has Ewoks.  But it also has great plot twists, epic space battles and a note perfect conclusion to one of the best trilogies of all time.

 

3 – The Good, The Bad And The Ugly
Most people forget this was part of a trilogy but the man with no name rode out one last time in what is the bets of the series for many.

 

2 – Goldfinger
Still seen as the quintessential Bond film by many, Goldfinger set the bar and the format for all Bond films that followed.  Connery defines cool.  

 

1 – Toy Story 3
Toy Story 3 made me cry on several occasions.  It’s a charming, heart breaking and emotionally strong film that deserves it’s place here as the best threequel of all time.
