Movies Directed by Steven Spielberg:
Steven Spielberg has made so many iconic movies over the course of his career that making this list was possibly one of the most difficult things we have ever had to do. He was born to direct movies and we thank God for that otherwise we would have missed out on so many amazing cinematic experiences.
#10: Minority Report (2002)
Minority Report is probably one of the most underrated movies of Steven Spielberg. The movie is an amazing mixture of action and suspense. The premise will grip you from the start. The premise of the movie is that in the future, murders can be predicted and stopped before they happen. Tom Cruise is one of the agents who discovers that the next murder they have to stop will be committed by himself. It is one of the most entertaining Sci-fi movies ever made.
#9: Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977)
This movie is a Classic which is as good as the year it came out. The story is still fresh and the acting in the movie is amazing as well. The special effects are obviously not up to the standard we all are used to but if you are willing to let that pass then Close Encounters of the Third Kind is an amazing movie. The movie explores the possibility of extra-terrestrial life and also tries to find the real meaning of our existence.
#8: Catch Me If You Can (2002)
Catch Me If You Can is a story about Frank Abagnale Jr., who successfully forged millions of dollars’ worth of checks while posing as a Pan Am pilot, a doctor, and a legal prosecutor. Steven Spielberg presents a movie with amazing attention to detail which engrosses the audience.
#7: E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial (1982)
Arguably the most influential movie of all time, E.T. Extra-Terrestrial is a very touching movie about a special friendship that will warm your heart and possibly make you cry. This movie is an experience that you cannot afford to miss.
#6: Jaws (1975)
This movie redefined the meaning of Horror. Jaws set the standard for horror thrillers by which all other movies are measured. It centers around the Fictional North Atlantic resort of Amity, which finds itself terrorized by an enormous great white shark. This movie made the career of Steven Spielberg.
#5: Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade (1989)
Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade concluded the amazing story of Indiana jones perfectly. It is a beautifully crafted film and it is funnier, classier than the other two movies. When two legends like Steven Spielberg and George Lucas work together with a star like Harrison Ford, nothing could go wrong.
#4: Jurassic Park (1993)
We all know everything there is to know about how awesome The Jurassic Park is. It has a brilliant plot and the graphics are absolutely superb which still stands strong. The Dinosaurs were actually convincing and this was the first time a monster movie was presented on such a scale like this.
#3: Raiders of The Lost Ark (1981)
Indiana Jones is one of the most iconic fictional characters of all time thanks to Spielberg, Lucas and Harrison Ford. You can re-watch this movie countless times and it would still be entertaining. Spielberg has just announced a new movie in the franchise and although fans a bit sceptical, we believe in Spielberg.
#2: Saving Private Ryan (1998)
Saving Private Ryan won 5 Oscars but unfortunately, it could not bag the Best Picture Oscar which is a total shame. It is a very emotional movie which gives out some strong messages. The acting is fantastic in this movie which elevates the overall experience. Spielberg’s direction made this movie so realistic that even the people watching the movie felt the pain.
#1: Schindler’s List (1993)
No surprises here, Schindler’s List is the best movie ever directed by Steven Spielberg. It is undoubtedly the best Holocaust movie ever made. This movie shows the true horrors of the Holocaust, it depicts all the true atrocities faced by the people during that time and you can feel the pain of all those innocent people and the only thing you can do is cry. Steven Spielberg is undoubtedly one of the best directors to ever exist.
