Really tough one this. I suspect Schindler's List is the best film he has made; it is not the one I enjoyed the most, however.

 

I know he has wrote/produced loads of ace films like The Goonies, Poltergeist, Gremlins, Back To The Future etc... But for the poll I'll just do ones he has directed. Again, can't fit all of them in so if I've left your favourite out vote other.

 

On another note he is making a film of this book Robopocalypse: Amazon.co.uk: Daniel H. Wilson: Books anyone read it? Film due out 2013.

I went for Raiders Of The Lost Ark. Difficult to divide his better films. Schindler's List is a superb film and he has made some of the finest popcorn movies of the last thirty odd years like Raiders Of The Lost Ark, Jaws and ET.

I went for Raiders... simply because, of all the Spielberg films I've seen (I've not seen all of them mind), it is the most purely enjoyable.

I know it's a cheat but I voted "Other" because I genuinely cannot split Jaws, Saving Private Ryan and Schindler's List. There's at least five other all-time classics on that list too, in my opinion. I reckon he's easily the greatest film-maker of all time.

I'm seeing Jaws at the beginning of August on the big screen and I cant fucking wait.

 

The Prince Charles cinema in London is showing it on monday 18/7 if anyone wants to see it on the big screen.

Probably Jaws as well for me, it was the first ever VHS I saw as a child, and it scared the bejaysus out of me

 

I have to admit, I'm really looking forward to the new TinTin movie as well, TinTin was an awesome cartoon, for a French fag with a little quif hair-do, he's always involved in scraps and shootings, I can't bloody wait

That run from Duel to Raiders (1941 aside) was tremendous. I can't really decide between them. I just wish he'd done the segment for Twilight Zone that he'd originally intended (The Monsters are due on Maple St) rather than the overly sugary Kick the Can.

Jaws for me, it's my favourite film so it has to be. Raiders second and E.T. third. I was too young (or not born re:Jaws) to see any of them in the pictures but I'll always remember seeing Jurassic Park for the first time in Woolton as one of the best times I ever had in the cinema. Scared the fuck out of me.

Went for Close Encounters, but another day it could have been Jaws or a few others too.

 

It a breathtaking body of work. And that's before you consider his cameo in Blues Brothers.

Schindler's list for me. Actually only watched it this morning having arrived from Lovefilm and only the second time I've seen it.

 

Love Dual, Close Encounters, Jaws and ET though. The later three were part of my childhood. And Raiders.
