Ranking Spielberg
Ranking Spielberg
11/26/12 at 02:19 PM by Jonathan Bautts
After seeing Lincoln recently I got to thinking where it fits in among the now 28 films Steven Spielberg has directed, which these days happens every time he releases a new film. (Spoiler alert: it's almost exactly in the middle.) Since I have a compulsory habit of formulating lists and hadn't done one on him in a while, I decided to oblige. Spielberg is someone I've pretty much had a lifelong love affair with after witnessing Raiders many, many years ago, while Saving Private Ryan is my third favorite film of all time and my pick for best film not associated with a franchise, but he has churned out quite a few duds over the years as well. Still, no other person in modern history has made a bigger global impact on pop culture, on what has now been across a nearly 40-year period. I'd like to think for the better, I'm sure many would argue the contrary, yet one thing is for certain - it's doubtful anyone will wield this type of influence again.
