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.

Ready Player One – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Tonally Ready Player One is a bit of a mess.  The humour doesn’t always work alongside the darker story undertones and the amount of swearing is very unusual for a Spielberg film.  This all said – Ready Player One is visually stunning and as you’d expect the direction is first class, showing once again that Spielberg is still one of the best directors working today.  The cast are generally good as well but personally I’m getting a little bored with Mark Rylance’s increasingly one note mumbling’s.  But it’s the cameos you’ll remember – everything from the Iron Giant to the Delorean and a million more.  Ultimately Ready Player One is a geeks paradise that’s good enough to paper over it’s cracks.

Best Bit: Cameos!
