Spielberg is the most financially successful director of all time with multiple major box office hits. He has also been nominated for seven Best Director Oscar and four of the movies he directed have been nominated for the Best Picture award. This list is the top ten movies he has directed.

The Top Ten

1 Schindler's List

Spielberg's tribute to the Holocaust reps Hollywood cinema at its best. Though looking at the phenom from Schindler's narrow POV the b/w film is sharply-written and anchored by three great turns from Liam Neeson, Ben Kingsley and especially Ralph Fiennes - anthonybecerra

Schindler's list is the best movie ever made. Saving private ryan doesn't deserve to be number 1 - Shynash21

schindler's list is the most beautiful movie I have ever seen.

This has got to be number one. Used to be my all time favorite movie. - jack2244

2 Jurassic Park

Amazing journey into a theme park under inspection that has breeding dinosaurs, but all hell breaks loose and that's where the fun starts.

Definitely, Jurassic Park is the best in its series as well as one of the Best films for Steven Spielberg. Based on the novel of the same name, the film is more and more interesting than any other film. Nevertheless, it is one of the most terrific films.

All these are good but not many people would even think about making Jurassic park. It's very thrilling and very interesting - Sabbath

Best Spielberg movie. The vibrating glass scene is the eeriest movie moment.

3 Raiders of the Lost Ark

Better than Schindler's List, Jurassic Park and even Saving Private Ryan! The most complete movie of it's era, this legend even contends with movies like Star Wars and The Shawshank Redemption.

This is definitely the greatest action/adventure movie of all time. It's Harrison Ford's greatest movie. It's potentially the greatest movie of all time. - BKAllmighty

It is an incredibly epic movie and it is Harrison Ford at his best. The most amazing adventure movie of all time

Great film! One classic scene after another.

4 Saving Private Ryan

This movie got gipped for best movie, I would call it a tie with Jurassic park, but Saving Private Ryan is the best World War 2 movie ever, every other movie to this day has tried to recreate it. No one can.

Best action your ever gonna find in a movie and it is long, stunning and one of the few movies that are the greatest!

Greatest and most stunning movie of all time! A great cast of actors all fit their roles and it is a long movie! Winner of 5 Academy Awards!

Most realistic war movie - Ajkloth

5 Jaws

You're gonna need a bigger boat. - RdrTech

Jaws is unquestionably the most effective, most enthralling and most entertaining movie Spielberg has ever done. It is a his most magical movie because it is just as funny as it is terrifying and suspenseful. Robert Shaw, Roy Schneider and Richard Dreyfus performances can send Harrison Ford four Indiana Jones ones right to Pluto. This movie was more beneficial to Steven Spielberg's career that the 2 Oscars he received for "Schindler's list and private Ryan. It is a touching movie and of extreme intensity because it shows us an extreme situation of human courage.

An extremely effective thriller, depicting scenes of human courages in a total desperate situation. Characters are real human beings. This is spielberg at his very best, helped by John williams amazing music.

This movie is good except close encounters and E.T are better

6 E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial

A near perfect film that beautifully represents what the art of cinema is all about -- Wonder, magic, heart, emotion, and iconic imagery.

E.T. is a true achievement that will stand the test of time for decades to come.

Love love love love LOVE this movie. I watched it 5 times! And I never got bored of it!

Best Spielberg film not part of a series (aka no sequels)

7 Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

Best Indiana Jones movie with the combination of a greater artifact to fetch from the Nazis. He actually gets it this time, it's very funny and Jesus beats Moses. Suck it, Raiders! This should be on the top 3.

Plenty of action and adventure, and provided a lot of laughs along the way. A great installment in the franchise.

a really good story and good action

Who else do you see Harrison ford and Sean Connery

8 Close Encounters of the Third Kind

Voting for this one because I believe it should be higher! What I love about it is that the aliens in the movie are completely shrouded in mystery! They're like extra-terrestrial ghosts! It's a wonderful film!

Oh yeah and Jerry Garcia is in the chanting crowd scene. - higgsboson2142

My favorite is surely close encounters. 2. Jaws.
