Now that our Top 50 Superhero Movies of All Time list has come and gone, it’s on to the next! But this time around, we’re putting the spotlight on one specific filmmaker – one of the best of all-time, Steven Spielberg. From 1975’s Jaws, which started the summer blockbuster phenomenon, to 2017’s Academy Award-nominated The Post, Spielberg has moved audiences with his rich, emotional stories, thrilled them with some incredible action sequences; made them think with his political dramas and inspired them to explore a world beyond our own. Along the way, he has won three Oscars with one coming in the Best Picture category for Schindler’s List and two in the Best Director category for Schindler’s List and Saving Private Ryan.
With so many great films to Spielberg’s name, there were bound to be a few that wouldn’t end up on our Top 10 list. We chose 4 of those films to highlight as our Honorable Mentions. Watch our first two honorable mentions video here and our second pair of honorable mentions video here. Now it’s time to move into the top 10 with our #10 film.
On this episode, we’re focusing on 2005’s Minority Report. Minority Report is written by Scott Frank and Jon Cohen and is based on Philip K. Dick‘s short story The Minority Report. The film stars Tom Cruise, Samantha Morton, Colin Farrell, and Max Von Sydow. The film is set in the future where a special police unit is able to arrest murderers before they commit their crimes, but this unit is tested from within when an officer from their ranks is himself accused of a future murder.
Various Collider staff members, personalities, and experts will weigh in with their thoughts on those honorable mentions and each of our Top 10 selections, share their initial reaction to seeing the movie for the first time, if they think that film belongs at its assigned place on the list, and if it still holds up for them to this day.
In future videos, you’ll see our installments for #10-1 on our list and the next honorable mentions video tomorrow.
