One of the best directors of all-time, underrated because his films have the audacity to be popular, therefore they can't really be that great.

Totally agree. I'm afraid that's exactly how the snoots here feel.

George I see you also rank '1941' above 'Schindler's List' and 'Saving Private Ryan', and I thought I was the only one to dare such a thing. Posted Image

I neither underrate Spielberg as a director, nor do I begrudge him the popular status he's achieved. But lately he's been taking the easy way out. The Terminal was a cloying insult of a film, Catch Me If You Can was decent if decidedly unmemorable fare, and Minority Report just pissed me off with its unnecessary feel-good ending. War of the Worlds I hate to say, looks like another Independence Day - just another empty, blustery spectacle (though I hope I'm wrong). Spielberg is better than that and I wish he'd wake up. Hell, instead of adapting The War of the Worlds as a brainless summer event film, why not use his clout to get a serious adaptation of Rendezvous With Rama off the ground?

A totally fallacious argument trotted out continuously on this forum to defend a director who doesn't need defending by bashing other people's opinion.

*1. A.I. Artificial Intelligence - A (still the best film of the 00's and a top 30-40 all-time)
*2. Close Encounters Of The Third Kind - A (astonishing when I was younger, now I can appreciate it as one of the most "realistic" and hopeful depictions of what a human/alien encounter might be like)
*3. Jaws - A (I love this because everytime I go see it, it makes me want to rent a boat and go shark killing, right Bill? Posted Image)
4. Raiders Of The Lost Ark - A (I haven't seen this in many years, just assuming I'd still feel this way)
5. Schindler's List - A-
6. Catch Me If You Can - A-
(surprised me that I enjoyed this so much)
7. Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom - B+ (Even when I didn't know what editing was I thought the opening scene in the restaurant was the best sequence in the 3 films.)
8. The Terminal - B+ (again, I was surprised I found this so entertaining though it does have a few clunky bits. Can't help but be impressed by the set design and some of the opening wide pan shots.)
9. The Color Purple - B+
10. Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade - B
(still Indiana but too-often resorts to silliness and lacks a lot of the snappy dialogue of the previous films)

11. Warhorse - B
12. Saving Private Ryan - B (A for the first 30m, C for everything after)
13. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull - B-
14. Jurassic Park - B-
(woo-hoo dinosaurs, boo story, Sam Neill going through the motions, & the most annoying pair of kids since the frightening robotic Disney monsters of the 60's.)
15. Amistad - B-
16. Minority Report - B-

17. War of the Worlds - C
18. Munich - C
19. The Lost World: Jurassic Park - D
(an awful film, possibly one of the worst ever by a director of Spielberg's stature and talent)

I didn't rank ET because I've never seen it again after its theatrical release 20+ years ago. I also know I've seen The Twilight Zone movie but can't remember anything about it.

Own: 3 (possibly a reflection that my Indiana Jones ranking is too high based on memory. I decided I didn't really want to see them enough to buy the box. Catch Me is the only other one I've considered buying since it used to show up so often in cheap sales)

I suppose one of these days I should get around to filling in the holes. At least watch Sugarland Express, Empire of the Sun and Duel. I can't say Hook, 1941 or Always interests me.

If you're referring to what I said, I wasn't bashing anyone's opinion, I was just stating that while I think Spielberg is a great director, he's been putting out unimpressive/unchallenging films of late (my opinion of course). A.I. was his last great film and I wish he'd take more chances like that. I'd say Ridley Scott falls into this category as well.

Munich(2005) - Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image - One of Spielberg's best films and it layers and doubles itself thematically very much like Empire of the Sun. It also is one of his most thought provoking and powerful statements on family. A masterpiece, his first since AI.
War of the Worlds (2005) - Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image - stellar except for the piss pour final 90 seconds.
The Terminal (2004) - Posted ImagePosted Image1/2 - gorgeous cinematography and a charming movie that never became the sum of its parts
Catch Me If You Can (2002) - Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image - brilliant caper/chase/character film. Love every moment. Leo DiCaprio is one of my favorite working actors
Minority Report (2002) - Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image1/2 - excellent piece of intelligent commercial sci-fi. Cruise is great as is Samantha Morton.
Artificial Intelligence: AI (2001) - Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image - Spielberg's most challenging and intelligent work, a masterpiece and it contains arguably the best child performance ever, and (possibly) the best performance Spielberg's ever gotten, in Haley Joel Osment.
Saving Private Ryan (1998) - Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image - Incredible impactful, and amazing piece of film. Overshadowed now by Band of Brothers, but this is an astonishing work.
The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997) - Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image1/2 - why do we have to rehash King Kong for the ending? Great thriller otherwise.
Amistad (1997) - Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image what on earth was anthony hopkins babbling about in that end speech and how could it possibly convince a jury? But as Djimoun goes through the bible, that was brilliant.
Schindler's List (1993) - Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image - ...
Jurassic Park (1993) - Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image - One of the best thrillers ever made.
Hook (1991) - Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image - fuck y'll if you don't like it, I was 8 when this came out and it was one of the greatest movies ever, I've watched it a hundred times, most recently about three years ago and I still find it charming and effective, if a bit silly and over the top.
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989) - Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image - Dr. Jones meet Dr. Jones. The first Indy I saw, and almost still my favorite.
Always - Posted ImagePosted Image(1988) - note to Spielberg, you're not good at remakes and the problems with this film are the messed up time periods the characters are balking around in. One way or another, this way doesn't work. Holly Hunter is gorgeous.
Empire of the Sun (1987) - Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image - my personal Citizen Kane, and still my favorite movie of all time. So nuanced, layered and textured. It's a fine movie with way more going on in it than is usually attributed.
The Color Purple (1985) - Posted Image - Just sad what was done with this novel, but I forgive Spielberg because he said he was embarrassed and didn't know what to do and just lacked the world experience to make the film properly but boy could he shoot the hell out of those lesbian scenes now. Posted Image
Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984) - Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image - Dr. Jones! I love you! fun film that's just so damn fun and silly
E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982) - Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image - Perfection realized
Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) - Perfection realizd
1941 (1979) - Posted ImagePosted Image - you tried so hard and fell so far, but in the end, it doesnn't really matter.
Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977) - Posted ImagePosted Image1/2 - dammit this was so good until he kissed that woman and got on the ship! Abandoning bastard!
Jaws (1975) - Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image - Brilliant film, love the scene between the father and son, and just an incredible thriller, top twenty film.
Sugarland Express (1973) - Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image - Damn good work needs a bit of shaping and focusing and polishing to be a masterpiece but this is a stunning piece
Duel (1970) - Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image - this is the european cut but it is a brilliant technical exercise in suspense and dread. Excellent, flawless execution, however the edit is definitely too long, I'd like to see the TV version.

Actually Steve, I think Brook was agreeing with George's disclaimer at the start of his list. All five of my fave directors have now been covered. David Lean, Billy Wilder and Spielberg, Hitchcock and Kurosawa.

More people here need to see Empire of the Sun; I need to write a paper/cinematographic/editing analysis of that film.

I own ten Spielberg films, second only to my nine Wilder films. Posted Image

Well, here's an interesting one. I have my highest percentage seen so far, although Spielberg is certainly not my favourite of the directors we've discussed. Far from it. I didn't list some because I've seen them, but it was so long ago that I've forgotten everything about them. Some I really like, some I really dislike. Something for everyone!

Adam, I wasn't sure who he was referring to. Posted Image

My major problem with The Terminal was Tom Hanks' cliched performance (hey look, I'm playin' a cute lil' humble foreigner!), but the film plays to the crowd too many times. The only pluses were the photography and Catherine Zeta-Jones (who was just beyond hot - I hate Michael Douglas!). Posted Image

I recently rewatched Empire of the Sun and liked it quite a bit more than on my first viewing years ago. For a similar story, check out Kazuo Ishiguro's novel When We Were Orphans (plugging one of my fav authors).

We still haven't gotten to one of my fav directors, Werner Herzog. Posted Image

I thought it would be obvious I was responding to my old sparring partner, George, and also talking about Ernest who shows up in threads where SS isn't even being discussed to launch into spirited defenses of his work Posted Image. I agree with you Steve. Even though I've liked his last two films, they certainly aren't challenging and I wish he would attempt something on the level of A.I. again.

That would be very unusual.

Much more likely. Posted Image

Having seen neither, I can't comment. But certainly it's not unusual to see threads in which masterpieces like Jaws are dismissed as trash, and Spielberg is viewed, not as a good director, but the reason why Hollywood makes crappy summer blockbusters instead of great films like Cries & Whispers.

Guess I'm one of the aforementioned "snoots".

Just about hate everything prior to Schindler's List (with a few exceptions), due to the whack-you-over-the-head-in-case-you-missed-it stories oozing gooey sentimentality and entirely populated by those lovable loud, abrasive, ADD-inflicted yahoos that Spielberg uses to depict the common man.

Jaws sucks!!!
