Steven Spielberg has been involved in the making of a plethora of movies spanning almost every genre, from horror films like Jaws and Arachnophobia, to thought provoking dramas like The Color Purple and Schindler’s List. Check out filmography and tell me, which movie was his best?

So, I haven't seen every Spielberg film, but I have seen quite a few and my faves are not his best known. Don't get me wrong, I understand the influence Jaws, E.T. and Poltergeist had on their respective genre but I still have to go with Batteries Not Included and Arachnophobia as Spielberg's best. I loved both movies, actually, I still love both movies!
I haven't seen any of Spielberg's films in full. I watched bits and pieces of E.T., (which I don't like) and Jurassic Park (which doesn't interest me). I am, however looking forward to his version of The BFG, which is due to come out in 2016.
Spielberg has a plethora of work to his name. Whatever genre he directs, one can always rely on his story telling being strong and cleverly put to screen. Although half his movies are those I wouldn't go and see, he is someone who's work I greatly admire. My favourite Spielberg movies however, would have to be the emotionally stirring Schindler's List, Munich and Saving Private Ryan.
Difficult question -I would have to say between three -Colour Purple (did not realise this was one of his) which was brilliant, ET which was gorgeous, and Close encounters of the Third Kind.
I am going for my VERY favourite as Close Encounters as it is a film I have seen at least 3 times which is something very rare for me, followed closely by ET which I have also seen 2 or possibly 3 times and which still makes me cry each time I watch it.
