Inspired by wanta's idea for a poll of the other Steve's films. I think this is a pretty solid decade for Spielberg. Choose up to three, but pls don't vote for a film you don't like just to vote for three

Before I vote, I'll be watching Catch Me If You Can for the first time, and revisiting Munich for the first time since it came out.

His three scifi's, and he probably is the best scifi director of the decade. Funny thing tho is that recently the collective critical thought has switched from each film's initial reaction. Where it first was: Minority Report > A.I. > War of the Worlds, has now almost completely flipped around.

A.I. and Minority Report pretty much crush the others.

I like that a lot if true. The Letterboxd ratings still hold the old order, but I definitely sense a strong AI > Minority Report attitude everywhere. I think for most people War of the Worlds is still a shit film, but the defenders are vocal. I like it a lot, and you do too, right?

I really like Catch Me If You Can. The relationship that develops between Leo's character and Tom's character over the course of the movie is brilliant. It is one of those movies I will watch anytime it is on.

His War of the Worlds is getting respect now? I loved it when it came out and couldn't understand the negative reactions to it.

Munich was my favorite of these and only voted for it. Do enjoy Catch Me if you Can and the first 2/3rds of Minority Report. Hate War of the Worlds

It might be a realistic portrayal of how a divorced dad & kids would handle the situation, but the whole family element of the film dragged down the final product for me. Spielberg needs the father-son drama. I don't. That and the Tim Robbins scene. That sucked. Other than that, I liked it.

Sheesh, I even love the Tim Robbins scene. I was practically biting my nails thinking, "Aw, fuck, he's totally bonkers and going to give them away!"
