5 Must watch Steven Spielberg movies for an amazing experience


Christopher Meloni tells us his top 5 must watch Steven Spielberg movies in a guest post for The Bearded Trio:

‘ I don’t dream at night; I dream all day, I dream for a living.'

Doesn’t this quote remind you of someone? Yes, Right? Well, who doesn’t know him? He is none other than the finest filmmaker of all time- The great Steven Spielberg. His contribution to Hollywood is just incomparable!! He made such a huge number of incredible films over the course of time that whenever there is a discussion about good films among the cinephiles, then his name is always uttered with tremendous deference.

Moreover, the fact is no less true that even I am one of his biggest fans. And, that’s why today I am here with a list of seven of his outstanding masterpieces which have done a great business in the box office and audiences too loved the same with all their heart.

Okay, let me start with the run-down with no more delay, and I am sure you will end up having a great experience while exploring the same.


1.  A.I. Artificial Intelligence

A.I. Artificial Intelligence is one of the most incredible masterworks of Spielberg where he has showcased his impressive technological expertise along with the fabulous ability to make films. The story is about a robot boy, an adorable talking teddy bear and last but not the least a robo-gigolo. Also, it is one of the most emotionally complex films of him.

However, it wouldn’t be certainly a right thing if I don’t give credit to the renowned production designers of the movie who are Rick Karter and DP Janusz Kaminski. But, Spielberg’s self-reflexive and an exhilarating script which is morally conflicted at the same time is the important anchor of this unique movie.

2.  Lincoln

Lincoln is one of the most undersung masterpieces of Steven Spielberg. It is one of the most fantastic movies of Lincoln which prove that Steve can’t be defined so easily. In this film, the wonder comes from a single man and Spielberg allowed the scripts and performances to rule the film. If you haven’t watched the movie yet, then you can grab a lucrative deal from CouponsMonk to purchase a DVD at an affordable rate.

3.  Schindler’s List

Although Schindler’s List is one of the ‘out of the box’ films of Steve Spielberg ever he made it an incredible piece even about the Holocaust. Spielberg has handled this extremely delicate subject matter with a perfect amalgamation of tact, ambition, and reverence. The horrifying even in this film has been chronicled in such a way that it has an honest and compelling feel both.

4.  Jurassic Park

I can hardly hold on myself for not gushing over this epic!! It is no less than a miracle for the moviegoers like me. Jurassic Park is an incredibly unique and timeless film which has been directed by Spielberg. This film was shot in iconic action set-pieces which were thrilling. It is simply a great movie!

5.  Jaws

The idea of summer blockbuster has been taken to another level with Jaws!! It is again an yet another superb film which is director’s most personal films. There is a comprehensive survey of small-town life in the movie with a uniquely focused skepticism and great humor. The script of the movie cuts out the affair between Dreyfuss’s character and Brody’s wife which was summarized in the book in a refreshing and meaningful way while visualizing the stability of the summer towns.  

Concluding words
 The list of his excellent films doesn’t end here! It goes on and on. I just preferred to list out the ones above because I have a constant level of liking and attachment with these films. Lastly, I would like to wrap up with one simple suggestion to you, and that is nothing but the fact that if you haven’t watched any of these movies till now then just make a move soon!

Star Wars VII Movie Poster - Every End Is A New Beginning

Just saw this Star Wars VII movie poster on Kyle Newman's Facebook feed.  The poster is by Lyndon Berresford and Paul Bateman. 
I am loving this.  Who do you think the two characters are?  Lando and Leia?  Han and Leia's children?

Have you seen other Star Wars VII movie posters?  Let me know.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth?

I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack.

Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with TheIndyExperience.com and settled 'flygate:'

This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of the Ark scene.…

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history.


UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton has announced plans to build its first sound stages in the United States. The Pinewood Atlanta complex will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company. Georgia has been among the US states drawing film-making away from Hollywood with tax incentives in recent years. The deal is the latest sign of expansion at Pinewood, the home of the James Bond franchise. Earlier this month it announced a joint venture with a Chinese media group, potentially giving it access to the fast-growing Chinese market.
