Steven Spielberg Countdown | One Man, 32 Movies | Will accept late submissions via PM

Recommended Posts

I'm not adding anything until I fill in a few of my own blind spots (I have Always on Blu-Ray, though I've yet to watch it, I just rented Empire of the Sun and Hook is on Netflix).

Just rewatched Ready Player One and the movie deserves more credit, at least on a technical level. Spielberg experiments more with a virtual environment than any film since Avatar combined.

I watched Jurassic Park in the cinema a couple of weeks ago. The "Welcome to Jurassic Park" scene is so beautiful. Honestly like top 10 film scenes ever.

 

Raiders will obviously win this list but will be interesting to see how high up people rank some of the other stuff.

Ready Player One is one of my bottom 5 movies I've ever seen.

Thing sbout Spielberg is his contributions as a producer and studio head might be as great as his contributions as a director.

Ready Player One is impressive technically, but it's flaws as far are writing and plot drag it down.

Its writing isn't any worse than most blockbusters in the past decade.

War Horse - Another late Spielberg film that I think gets too much hate from the internet. Rare to see films today so unbashedly uncynical. Somewhat weak act one though.

War Horse made me bawl like a baby. I’m a sucker for horse movies.

Where was I celebrating the writing of Ready Player One? Saying that the bar for writing in blockbusters is very low isn't me celebrating it.

So that's why you saw the My Little Pony movie instead of Blade Runner.

Munich - Spielberg even at his most subdued, continues to show off. Contains some of the most precise camerawork in his career. The way Spielberg moves through different perspectives through his zooms and dolly-shots is just impeccable. Some very subdued work from Williams too.
