Excellent hub on some excellent popcorn movies. I have seen all of his movies except for Amistad, The War Horse and The Color Purple. His movies were very influential in making me a movie nut....as Jaws, Close Encounters and Raiders of the Lost Ark were three movies I saw in my impressionable teenage youth.

His later films have not been as impressive to me at least but they all are quality work....with the exception of Indy IV.....which everybody seems to blame George Lucas for how bad that one turned out....but Spielberg has to get some credit for that one too.

Great pictures as always.....just seeing ET makes me think I should watch that with my 5 year old very soon.

Voted up and interesting.

Hey thanks Bruce, much appreciated amigo.

I have to agree, his recent output hasn't impressed me either. Indy IV was a disappointment and Tintin could have been directed by anyone.

My favourite Spielberg films are the three you mentioned, Jaws, Close Encounters and Raiders.

Btw that second ET poster, with the moon and bicycle was especially created for the crew of the film but Spielberg liked it so much he let the studio use it on re-releases of the film.
