He was involved in so many projects that were unfathomable for most folks. He most definitely made going to the Movies a greater experience.

 Saving Pvt. Ryan, Jurassic Park (as its brought the real scenario of the Dino. Kingdom for nxt. gen.)...
#10 | 1673 days ago

jsmall don't lie.
#11 | 1673 days ago

I put "Jaws" as #1 because I could not go in the ocean for YEARS after seeing it without at least some small part of me thinking that they'd find my body parts scattered on the Jersey shore the next day, covered in seaweed and small sea creatures. 

Any movie that stays with you THAT much deserves to be #1 in my book.

Who Framed Indiana Jones: An American Tale.    "In a land before time, there were Goonies and Poltergeist. Men in Black Transformed in The Terminal, and said Catch me if you Can. But in the Last Days, Artifical Intelligence wrote Letters from Iwo Jima about Evolution. They said to beware of The Mask of Zorro, for it is the Color Purple. If we could only go Back to the Future and find out Who framed Roger Rabbit, maybe then he could get onto Schlinders List for Saving Private Ryan on the Amistad, where he was ripped from the Jaws of E.T. Sometimes he had Dreams that the world was not just a Money Pit, but a world with an Eagle Eye for spiders, for he had Arachnophobia. A world where his friends Hook and Munich  could bask in the Empire of the Sun wthout having to worry about Gremlins following them around. Sadly it is all just a dream, for they are fighting in a War of the Worlds"

The Goonies because it's a timeless movie and introduced me to Rocky Road ice cream.  Sloth was the man!  There really aren't any wrong answers when you have that many great movies to choose from. 

I wonder what Spielberg's personal favorite is?
