    maybe

    1. Indy trilogy.
    2. Jaws
    3. Minority Report

    looking forward to War of the Worlds though...

    never really got into Saving Private Ryan or Schindlers List....
    Jurasic Park wasn't a great film enjoyable the first time but not worth repeat viewings.

    Hmmmmmm, tough one!

    Narrowing it down in could be SPR, Jurassic Park (well maybe not), Schindlers List or Raiders of the Lost Ark!

    Then I remember that my favourite film of all time is Jaws so that's my answer :D

    i've gone for Jurassic Park. A lot of classics in there, but JP is probably the one i could watch over and over, probably partly cos i never grew out of my childhood fascination with Dinosaurs.

    Some absolutely great titles in there :smashin: however for me it has to be Jaws, for the sheer impact that film had on me as a child, and even today i love it. it also has the best musical score of any film, dare a say even better than The Good The Bad and The Ugly :eek: :eek: :eek:
    1.................JAWS :clap: :clap: :clap:

    This is a tough one, but i went with Raiders of the Lost Ark. Hopefully War of the Worlds will be up to this quality.

    I did enjoy AI, I found it quite moving in places. Same sentiment for Titanic actually (which was mentioned). Not perfect films, but some excellent moments. And definitely films I'd watch more than once (esp if they bring an anamorphic version of Titanic out).

    Having though some more....I reckon my top 3 would definately be:

    1, Jaws
    2, SPR
    3, Raiders/Schindlers List

    Calm down Kopite - you're being a bit over sensitive mate. Nothing of the sort was implied / meant by my post.

    The emphasis on "intelligent" was in reference to the fact that there are so few intelligent SF films made these days.

    There are some really good films on that list but my vote went to Close Encounters. I went to see this while I was in our school's Film club. The school ran a trip to London and I still remember how impressed I was with the odeon in Leicester square. It's probably a sentimental thing because there are "better" films on that list but CE is my favourite.

    what was wrong with a.i... well i think i'd say it was about half an hour too long, the bit where robokid gets thawed out in the future spoiled the movie for me, if it had ended with him in the ship under water, everyone would have been left deep in thought about how he may perhaps be left there till the end of time crying for his mummy, but no, they have to add the typical hollywood ending. Other than that, i think the movie was really good.

    Erm, that isnt a typical hollywood ending, its nothing of the sort. One of the most depressing endings to come from hollywood in a long time.

    Unlike most other people I also like AI, thought it was excellent:)

    I like so many of Spielberg's movies, but in the end I had to opt for SPR:) I remember seeing it at the cinema...never ever has a movie affected me so much on the first viewing.

    So many amazing movies, defo have to say IMO spielberg is the best director ever for me, just for the fact that so many of his movies are superb.

    Looking at that list just makes me wanna see War of the Worlds even more :)

    Tough choice as I've enjoyed a lot of these movies, but I'd have to go with Jaws as the best for me.

    There's no way I could pick my favourite as there are so many classics in that list (and also very different types of films).

    Unlike some others I thought AI was top notch and quite enjoyed the ending, a typical Speilberg touch. I also really enjoyed Titanic :blush:
