Top Ten Movies Directed by Steven Spielberg

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

Jurassic Park Jurassic Park Product Image

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

This movie and the whole Jurassic Park series sucks and gets so boring. The only film I liked in the series was The Lost World.

Schindler's List Schindler's List Product Image

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

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

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

This is not his best movie. I know, it's about Jews, but come on, just because of that it isn't the best. (it's a very good movie though)

Raiders of the Lost Ark Raiders of the Lost Ark Product Image

Although it may not be a serious, dramatic, or revolutionary in it's effects as the top 2, Radiers still stands as one of the greatest action movies ever made. There's a underlying creepiness to it that I haven't experienced with any other film prior to or since watching it. Perhaps it's the overall mystery the film presents, or maybe it's the amazing score by John Williams. Whatever it may be, it slowly builds in intensity as the film goes on, and ends with one of the greatest climaxes ever. Not to mention, there's also great dialogue, amazing pacing, and showstopping effects that still impress to this day.

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.

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

Saving Private Ryan Saving Private Ryan Product Image

A gem from director Steven Spielberg, starring a gem for actor: Tom Hanks.

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!

Jaws Jaws Product Image

Definitely Jaws because of how well acted it was and the effects are pretty good as well

You're gonna need a bigger boat.

How can Jaws not the number 1 on this list? Like seriously it is one of the best films to this date and needs to get more attention on how incredible this film is. It is not just a horror film but a mix of all genres through thriller to comedy to drama, etc. It is one film I can watch over again and again.

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.

E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial Product Image

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.

oh my gosh. best movie. drew barrymore!

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

This should be 1 if not then too because this a great movie and we can congratulate E.T. for phoning home!

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade Product Image

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

I love this movie! This is the best Indiana Jones film out of the four in my opinion.

Catch Me If You Can Catch Me If You Can Product Image

So underrated, how this amazing movie somehow went under the radar is beyond me

This movie is literally as good as any.

Amazing film, a must see!

Second best after last crusade

Close Encounters of the Third Kind Close Encounters of the Third Kind Product Image

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.

My favorite is surely close encounters. 2. Jaws.

Minority Report Minority Report Product Image

Great special effects and a horror like element, this movie has exciting moments and thrilling action

Dakota Fanning is great in this movie.

I think this movie is very underrated.

I did't like this.

Munich Munich Product Image

Great movie that deserves much more respect compared to other movies in this list.

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom Product Image

Why is this movie way higher than the lost world jurassic park. That movie should be at this spot in my opinion. This godawful film should be in last place. The only good thing about it is Harrison Ford and the fight scene at the end. Other than that, avoid this film at all costs. It's that bad.

Most overrated movie of all time

The Adventures of Tintin The Adventures of Tintin Product Image

It's so BADASS!

Poltergeist Poltergeist Product Image

For the people who don't think he directed this, HE DID, and this movie isn't that scary but it's an amazing movie with a great cast. SEARCH IT UP. HE DIRECTED THIS.

He directed this look up Steven Spielberg or Steven Spielberg movies and this will come up I SWEAR

He didn't direct this


Gremlins Gremlins Product Image

Didn't direct it.

This movie is kinda scary...and it happened at Christmas Time. Gross when they hatch thou

This movie gave me nightmares

There are no bad Spielberg movies is my opinion, this, E.T. War Horse

Lincoln Lincoln Product Image

It has the best performances, the best script and the most restraint we've seen in any Spielberg film. Could we ask for more?

Objectively, this should be at number 1 or 2, with Schindler's List. It really is a masterwork.

Empire of the Sun Empire of the Sun Product Image

This is such an underrated film. If you have a chance, rent it!

This is underrated in many ways...

Christian Bale's childhood

How could this be at 19!?!?!?

The Color Purple The Color Purple Product Image

This movie is so great! Sadly, few people know about it

The best of a lifetime of great films by speilberg

Amazing movie...

Good movie. I'm suprize it didn't win any Oscars

Hook Hook Product Image

Not a big fan of this movie. I know a lot of people gush over this film and that's fine but I think this is one of Spielbergs worst movies. It has cheesy effects, fake sets, a boring first act in London and the plot is all over the place. I don't despise this film but I don't like it either save for Dustin Hoffman and Robin Williams as hook and pan respectively. I'm glad I did not grow up with this film at all.


Ready Player One Ready Player One Product Image

I know its not out yet but the trailers great

Awesome Film

It's awesome

The Goonies The Goonies Product Image

He didn't direct this movie

Not even in the top 5?!?!? Deeply offended..

Spielberg only wrote the story but he wasn’t the director.

The Lost World: Jurassic Park The Lost World: Jurassic Park Product Image

Awesome film. I like how it is much more darker and more savage than the first. A masterpiece really.

Screw you guys, this movie was great and by far the best in the franchise. Part One is great but is overrated.

This is film is very underrated. I like this movie very much.

Personally my favourite in the series and I liked it even more than the first one.

The Terminal The Terminal Product Image

One of Tom Hanks best films in my opinion. One of those movies I can watch over and over again and never get tired of it.

It's gotta be at least in top 20...
