Steven Spielberg

I took a little hiatus from my Top 10 lists and I think this two-part series will exclaim that I’ve returned with guns a blazing. Show me anyone who hasn’t seen and liked at least one of these twenty Steven Spielberg classics and I would be shocked.

Whether for himself or his films the accolades are never-ending from Academy Award winners and nominations to obliterating box office records previously set. By his own films! For me personally it started off in the summer of 1975 with one helluv a fishing story. He never looked back and is still running with his latest being a smash hit paying homage to the 16th President of the United States.

Thank you to Google Images, You Tube, Wikipedia and IMDB for the assistance in putting this list together. Enjoy this Part I series and we’ll wrap up Part II hopefully next week! The angle I took is that these are my favorites.

Go now. Shoo! Start scrolling down to get to the good stuff for those of you that haven’t already cheated and check out my trademark trivia questions!

20  Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984)

Question – The final fight scene was filmed in Sri Lanka with the rope bridge actually suspended a couple of hundred feet across a gorge. Harrison Ford had no fear of heights and ran across it but who wouldn’t go near it?

I consider the Indiana Jones franchise to be a trilogy +1 and of the first three this still is good but my least favorite of them.  I felt it was a little too dark seeing it on opening night and Mr Lucas came out later and even agreed with that assessment. Apparently he was going through a divorce when he came up with the idea for the film.  It’s ok, George. Regardless, Indiana Jones always rocks!

Answer – Spielberg is an acrophobic and had to drive a mile and a half to the other side because he refused to walk over it.

Harrison Ford – Indiana Jones
Kate Capshaw – Wilhelmina “Willie” Scott
Jonathan Ke Quan – Short Round
Amrish Puri – Mola Ram

19  Amistad (1997)

Question – The crew was astounded when Anthony Hopkins delivered the entire seven page courtroom speech in a single take. Spielberg was so in awe of the actor what did he do?

Are you kidding me? When I saw the lineup for this movie in the trailer I said no way! It doesn’t get any more elite in finding this best of the best actors. As with all stories and movies on slavery I cringed about our world’s dark past and was rooting with all of my might for the men to prevail. Which thank goodness they finally did.

Answer – He refused to call him Tony and addressed him as Sir Anthony for the entire shoot. 

Morgan Freeman – Theodore Joadson
Nigel Hawthorne – Martin Van Buren
Anthony Hopkins – John Quincy Adams
Djimon Hounsou – Sengbe Pieh / Joseph Cinqué
Matthew McConaughey – Roger Sherman Baldwin

18  The Lost World (1997)

Question – This film contained some 50% more dinosaur action than the original. In the San Diego scene where the T-Rex is terrorizing the city what are the fleeing Japanese tourist saying?

This sequel following the smash hit worked just wonderfully for me! Some of the San Diego scenes might have been a stretch but it definitely gave me pause for thought to the question, “what if they were ever loose in a city! And hungry?”
Answer – “I left Japan to get away from this!!”

Jeff Goldblum – Dr. Ian Malcolm
Julianne Moore – Dr. Sarah Harding
Vince Vaughn – Nick Van Owen
Pete Postlethwaite – Roland Tembo
Richard Attenborough – John Hammond 

17  Minority Report (2002)

Question – Spielberg wanted to use CG to create the air bubbles rising in the bathtub when Anderson holds his breath. What happened instead ?

Oh wow, to be able to live a world free of murder only 40 years from now! It becomes an amazing futuristic mystery drama that kept me wondering where the answers were for Anderton.

Answer – Tom Cruise took the time and learned how to do it himself.

Tom Cruise – Captain John Anderton
Max von Sydow – Director Lamar Burgess
Colin Farrell – Danny Witwer

16  Catch Me If You Can (2002)

Question – In spite of the cameras being obviously present, during filming, what happened to Leonardo DiCaprio?

I’m always drawn to true life stories through film first and foremost. What made this movie such a hit was that Abangale himself said what was shown on the screen was 80% accurate. I understood the motivation but the cat and mouse game stole the show. 

Answer – Real people came up to him and tried to give him their money.

Leonardo DiCaprio – Frank Abagnale, Jr.
Tom Hanks – Carl Hanratty
Christopher Walken – Frank Abagnale, Sr
Martin Sheen – Roger Strong
James Brolin – Jack Barnes
Amy Adams – Brenda Strong 

15  War of the Worlds (2005)

Question – What happened underwater to Tom Cruise and Dakota Fanning during the ferry capsizing scenes?

I am a huge loyal fan of the 1953 H.G. Wells classic so I walked in being skeptical to this remake. It has all of the bells and whistles of special effects and still manages to tell a good sci-fi story. Better than the original? Never. 

Answer –  As a joke Spielberg played the dramatic music from Jaws (1975) through the massive underwater speakers on the sound stage. 

Tom Cruise – Ray Ferrier
Dakota Fanning – Rachel Ferrier
Justin Chatwin – Robbie Ferrier
Miranda Otto – Mary Ann Davis
Tim Robbins – Harlan Ogilvy 

14  Munich (2005)

Question – What is the significance of Guri Weinberg’s role?

I can vaguely remember the 1972 Summer Olympics and my dad telling that something had gone terribly wrong.  As I grew older and learned about the entire story at length I was totally supportive of retribution against and elimination of the assailants. The movie presents a very gray area in how that gets carried out and addressing what is right and wrong and who is the ture enemy. 

Answer – He plays his own father. He is the son of Moshe Weinberg, the Israeli wrestling referee and former champion who died in the massacre when Guri was just 1 month old. 

Eric Bana – Avner Kaufman based on Yuval Aviv
Daniel Craig – Steve
Ciarán Hinds – Carl

13  The Color Purple (1985)

Question – Steven Spielberg’s biggest regret for the film was his lack of courage about what?

I remember watching this movie with my fiance’ when we had a date night while her kids were at the sitter. We were absolutely blown away and brought to tears more than once at  Celie’s plight. The reunion between she and Nettie was awesome. 

Answer –  That of portraying the lesbian relationship between Celie and Shug. At the time of filming, Spielberg feared that overt sexuality between the two characters would alienate audiences.

Whoopi Goldberg – Celie Harris Johnson
Danny Glover – Albert Johnson (“Mister”)
Oprah Winfrey – Sofia

12  Lincoln (2012)

Question – To what lengths did Spielberg to for authenticity in this film?

What’s ironic is that Day-Lewis did not want this role as he told Spielberg that he felt he was not worthy of the part.  An incredible movie that quite accurately depicts one of America’s all time iconic figures and heroes.  I can speak for most in that we’re glad you stepped up to the plate on this one, Daniel!  

Answer – He spent 12 years researching it and dressed in a suit every day for 3 1/2 months while also only addressing Lewis as “Mr President” and Field as “Mrs Lincoln” or “Molly”. Additionally, he recreated Abraham Lincoln’s Executive Mansion office precisely, with the same wallpaper and books Lincoln used. The ticking of Lincoln’s watch in the film is the sound of Lincoln’s actual pocket watch. Lincoln’s watch is housed in the Kentucky Historical Society in Frankfort, Kentucky (not the Lincoln Presidential Library.) It is the watch he carried the day of his assassination.

Daniel Day-Lewis – President Abraham Lincoln
Sally Field – First Lady Mary Todd Lincoln
David Strathairn – Secretary of State William H. Seward
Tommy Lee Jones – Republican Congressman Thaddeus Stevens of Pennsylvania
Hal Holbrook – Francis Preston Blair
James Spader – Republican Party operative William N. Bilbo

11  E.T. (1982)

Question – In 1981 while on location shooting Raiders of the Lost Ark, Spielberg dictated the story to whom?

You would be hard pressed to find anyone of movie watching age that has not seen this  classic. It struck a deep chord with me as I reflected back vicariously through Elliot in wanting that special bond with another that would remain in my heart forever.

Answer – Screenwriter Melissa Mathison who was there with her then-boyfriend and future husband Harrison Ford. 

Henry Thomas – Elliott
Robert MacNaughton – Michael
Drew Barrymore – Gertie
Dee Wallace – Mary
Peter Coyote – Keys 

What was your favorite of the group? We’ll finish up with Part II hopefully next week!

I have been told (many times) that I really need to write a book about my life. The past 40+ years have been an exciting ride, and these days I find myself with a great many passions. However, I feel that this website is a much more personal way with which to share my musings, stories, commentary, and (of course) my greatest love... my Golden Retriever, Phoenix.

  96 Responses to “Top 10 Steven Spielberg Movies – Getting Started With Part I”

  1. I’ve missed a couple of his movies, but still hard to pick a favorite.

  2. I haven’t seen Amistad, Munich, War of the Worlds, or The Color Purple which it seems I now have to remedy. I saw Catch Me If You Can. It was okay, but I liked the book a lot more. I too am a huge fan of the original War of the Worlds which is why I never bothered with the remake, I wasn’t sure how you could improve on the original.

    Lincoln rocked!
    E.T. was cute.
    The Lost World was okay.
    Minority Report was good.
    I.J. and the Temple of Doom…was my third favorite I.J. movie.

    • That’s how I felt about War of the Worlds but I did give it a try. Most definitely check out, The Color Purple, Ed. It’s amazing… 🙂

  3. Oh – I love E.T. That was one of the very first movies I saw in the theater. Great list, particularly the trivia questions (and the answers because I needed them.) I’m not a huge movie person, but my hubby is. I’m pretty sure he’s seen all of these. Looking forward to the second half.

    • Hi Mandi, that’s great that your husband enjoys movies like I do. It’s so much about having our free time and what we want to do with it, huh? I understand that for sure. E.T. will always be awesome 🙂

  4. I loved The Color Purple, even though it veers from the book in a few ways. It’s still great story about finding your voice and identity in an often cruel and senseless world. I also quite enjoyed Catch me if You Can. I used to have the book on my reading list, but have since removed it in light of so many books and so little time 🙂

    • Argh, I’m with you on the time element and having to carefully pick and choose, Jeri. I didn’t read the book version of The Color Purple and I bet it’s a wonderful read. That’s always my frustration with great books…they can rarely be replicated on the big screen 🙂

  5. Mike, as you know, I rarely go to the movies and virtually never watch them at home, but I’ve seen 4 of these films: Indiana Jones, The Color Purple, Lincoln and ET. My favorites were The Color Purple and Lincoln, but I do remember being charmed by ET. As you know, I even tried my first blog post movie review after I saw Lincoln which struck my “history major” chord. I’m still amazed at how many movies you’ve seen and can write about intelligently.

    • Well, for a lady who rarely watches movies I keep finding away to dig up memories from your archives, Suzanne! And that’s a good thing. Your review on Lincoln was absolutely fantastic 🙂

  6. Great post, The Color Purple is my favourite!

    • It’s an absolute winner no matter where it gets ranked isn’t it, Becky? It’s great to hear from you! 🙂

  7. I have watched a couple, and will make a point of watching Amistad, Munich and Lincoln (I love history).

    War of the worlds …. did not really impress me.

    • After I watched the Cruise version remake of War of the Worlds it was defiinitely a one-time see for me, Rachel. I think you will really like the other three as I’m a huge history buff myself! 🙂

  8. I’ve seen 4 of these movies – The Color Purple of course was incredible, ET was the box office smash and I thought Catch Me if You Can was good but lacked something. I thought Lincoln was extremely well-done, of course with Daniel Day Lewis what’s not to appreciate? However, I was disappointed with the ending, I firmly believe the movie should have ended with Lincoln walking down the hallway of the residence and then maybe some kind of historical text scroll. Everyone knows what happened and the ending felt disjointed, like an after thought. But, now that Abi and I had the opportunity to learn so much about the Civil War while on our recent road trip, I am wanting to see Lincoln again, so I can listen to the civil war dialogue. I bet I can guess which movie will be on top of the list!

  9. Love Steven Spielberg and so love this article, Mike.
    Thanks for the Q/A trivia. I have learned so much!
    Have a Happy Oscar Night! [wink]

    • I’m so jazzed to hear from you Memographer! Thank you so much on the compliments and I write these often with other fun life stuff with my Golden Retriever, Phoenix, and cooking. I already am enjoying your blog! 🙂

  10. Great inspiration. There are so many of these films, I haven’t seen (or can’t remember) so now I might as well start from the top. And impress family and friends with trivia while watching.

    • When I first started publishing these they didn’t have trivia. I began doing that last Fall and it was a big hit with the readers so I found a great niche. I’m glad you enjoyed it, Mette! 🙂

  11. You film buff! Interested to see Part 2… hopefully I’ll see Schindler’s List in there!

    • I have had so much fun with them and been pleasantly shocked at how much folks have enjoyed them, Shing! Still 10 more to go next week so I hope to have other favs in there that people like 🙂

  12. Mike, this is my favorite list you’ve ever done because I LOVE SPIELBERG MOVIES!!! I saw all these but Munich, Amistad, and War of the worlds.

    I mean….Indiana Jones….how can that not be my favorite?? My kids have seen them now. It was amazing to relive the movies through them. A local theater showed classic movies over the summer, so my kids saw this in the theater! How cool is that?

    Loved Catch me if you can! but I’m also a Leo fan.

    The trivia was SO COOL.

    looking forward to part II

    • You are always our champion, Beth! I realized I had taken quite a break from them and wanted to come out with a really good one. Spielberg popped into my head and I thought, “This one should hit the spot.” Obviously I’m a huge fan as well and yes those summer playbacks are so awesome for the kids to see what we enjoyed at that age! Xxx’s

  13. Fantastic work, Mike! My favorite is Lincoln, raiders then ET. Many here i haven’t seen. A funny anecdote; in college i wrote an essay on Steven Spielberg films and got a terrible mark. I think the prof didn ‘t care for Spielberg films or could be my writing was terrible lol.

    • OMG do you still have that paper, Lisa?!?! I would LOVE to read it!! I will drop you a line and your professor must have been bonkers! 🙂

  14. Haven’t seen Amistad. Not sure I want to see it after watching the preview.
    Love the trivia this go round.
    E.T. I have sick fond memories of that movie. My dad took us to the drive in theatre in Brenham Texas to see it. Won’t ever forget that.
    Amazing how certain movies bring back memories and some don’t.
    Great post Mike, I’m excited for the next one!!

    • Thank you for the compliments, Jenn! Did your Dad sneak you guys in the trunk to the drive-in? That’s what we did to avoid extra costs. You’ll have to share the E.T. story with me when you get a chance!

    • No, he didn’t sneak us in. I just remember us going to the drive in theatre. If my memory hasn’t failed me it was a Bronco that we took. My dad parked it backwards, pulled he tailgate down, we had lots of pillows, blankets and snacks. Great family time.

    • Ok….not sure where “sick” came from in my first post. At this point I don’t remember what the word should have been. Damn autocorrect.

    • I absolutely loved drive-ins! What a great memory for you, Jenn! One of my best dates ever was at a drive-in and I wrote a post about that last year 🙂

    • LOL…re: auto-correct! Been there too 🙂

  15. I remember watching ET and sobbing my head off.

    Spielberg is a genius.

    LOVE to you and phoenix! Xxxxxx

    • The tears were flowing with me too, Kim! Agree on Spielberg and Phoenix and I send our love always! 🙂

  16. Minority Report followed by War of the Worlds. I did like Catch Me If You Can & Indiana Jones but not as much the first two. Was kind of surprised how many I haven’t seen!! GREAT list!

    • Thank you, Nan! One of the things I love about my lists are hearing all of the different likes/dislikes/perspectives about the movies and often things that I miss! 🙂

  17. Hi Mike,
    Dont’ know what to say because I am not a big movie fan… still happened to watch Lincoln as my family was watching it at home. I usually walk away when movies are being watched, picked up this habit from my hubby who always avoided to go out to see movies.
    How I adapted to his ways surprises me too!

    • Ha, ha that’s funny on you adapting to your husband’s ways, Balroop. Movies aren’t for everyone and there are definitely tons of other fan activities in life to enjoy! I’m glad you got to watch Lincoln. I use movies for whimsical escape for me most often 🙂

  18. I didn’t realise there were so many I hadn’t seen. Thanks for giving me a great list of ‘must sees’ to take with me to the video store!

    • Well thank you for that compliment on peaking your interest, Johanna! I hope you enjoy the one’s you choose. Let me know what you pick! 🙂

  19. Steven Spielberg movies are awesome! Love all this trivia! So glad to see ET here. One of my all time favorite movies. Thanks for this great post, Mike!

    • Hey Mary! Thank you, thank you for the awesome compliment and we always appreciate your shout outs to and for us! Of course E.T. would be there and there are some other interesting one’s headed your way in the finale 🙂

  20. Lots of work in this post Mike! I loved the questions and answers. I did not know any of the answers so I learned a lot. My favs were Temple of Doom and E.T. Looking forward to learning some more trivia in your next post 🙂

    • I love trivia and on a whim I started including them last fall in my Top 10 posts, Jan. I never had a clue they would be such a mega hit and thank you so much for your awesome compliment! Temple of Doom and E.T. – very nice choices 🙂

  21. I used to be a HUGE Spielberg fan! Haha. My fav on the list is Catch me if you can, but also really want to see Munich after visiting the Olympic village here with some friends a few days ago and talking about that movie 😀

    • How ironic on the timing, Michelle! That is sooo cool you were able to visit the Olympic village. How many of the original structures are still there? Excellent choice on Catch Me If You Can 🙂

  22. Your post reminds me of what a spectacular talent Spielberg is!

  23. I love Catch Me If You Can, such a great movie!

    • Lots of thumbs up for this movie here and that is awesome! DeCaprio and Hanks worked so wonderfully on screen for this story don’t ya think, Catherine? 🙂

  24. Great post, Mike! 😀 I loved “Catch Me If You Can” especially. Frank was a bloody genius and still so young!
    Re: Munch; I was actually IN Germany during the 1972 Olympics (but not there), and remember the whole thing vividly. What a horrible event! Looking forward to Part II.

    • Oh that’s right I didn’t even think of that until just now re: you being there. Wow, I would love to hear that story from you Debbie. And the big winner here so far has been Catch Me hands down! Thank you for the compliment! 🙂

  25. Mike, uploading the trailer was such a great idea. I’ve never seen the movie called “Minority Report”, but after watching the trailer I’m like “Hey! That movie might be freaking interesting!”

    • That’s a huge compliment to me Agness as I wasn’t sure anyone ever watched them ha, ha! That just made my day, our friend 🙂

  26. I haven’t seen a lot of these either! But, the ones I have seen were brilliant! Fun list to think about. 🙂

    • It can sure be hard to find time to watch these “adult” movies when you’re as busy with those kids like you are, Meredith! 🙂 I will have to do another post someday with kids movies and that will be a lot of fun. Seriously, I love the Disney movies. We hope you are doing well and it’s great to hear from you 🙂

  27. Hi Mike, this looks like it’s going to be a good list; I can’t wait to see part two. I think I’d move Minority Report lower down (closer to number one) it is definitely one of my favorites! Spielberg is an incredible director and writer. I’ll be interested to see how your top ten stack up.

    • Thank you Jim and yes Minority Report was really good. It’s so much fun to do these and hear from readers as to their likes/dislikes or even those I may have omitted. I’m glad to hear you’ll be back for Part II 🙂

  28. the color purple is one of my all time favorite movies!

  29. I love your top ten and I really really love all of your little known facts like Spielberg being afraid of heights (I’d have driven to the other side too because yikes). There are a few on this list that I’ve never seen like Munich and Lincoln and War of the Worlds. Munich and Lincoln are on my “to see” list but I may skip War of the Worlds. I’m not a big Tom Cruise fan (it’s his breathing – it’s annoying). You rock for putting this together and I really look forward to part 2!!!

    • You can most definitely pass on War of the Worlds, Kristi. Thank you for your wonderful compliments 🙂

  30. You know how much I love lists, Mike! This one is AWESOME! Love Spielberg. You throw in some pretty interesting factoids, too. Catch Me If You Can and The Color Purple are two of my favorite movies. My son is addicted to the Jurassic Park movies and Indiana Jones and E.T. are forever classics. Love this and can’t wait for part two!

    • I’m addicted to the Indiana Jones trilogy and Jurassic Park as you can see…rocked for me. That video set the stage with the music. One of my fav 2 minutes, Sandy 🙂

  31. I’ve watched 6 of those movies. Out of those I probably like Minority Report the best. It was just an interesting concept to me and the story of behind why he’s doing what he’s doing.

    • Minority Report has sure been popular with the group on this one, Krystle. That is one of the parts I really enjoy with the Top 10’s – is hearing other’s likes/dislikes or whiffs on my part 🙂

  32. Holy cow. Clearly I need to get out more. I have seen hardly any of these! E.T. of course I have! But I was kid then! Maybe I need to have a weekend movie fest!

    • Ha, ha on getting out more, Michelle. It’s hard when you have a busy life and a family to be able to sit down and be a movie watcher. I totally get that 🙂

  33. Wow – Hopkins shot that “Amistad” scene in a single take?! I had no idea! That’s talent. “Amistad” is such a great movie and I’m so grateful that Spielberg brought it to the big screen.I also loved “The Color Purple” – classic. I loved Oprah in that movie. And “Minority Report” was excellent. Can you imagine living in a society where you get jailed before you even commit a crime – geez! Jave and I were just watching “Catch Me if You Can” recently. DiCaprio was excellent in that film (as always) – you should do a Leo list soon! And then of course there’s “ET”. That movie came out when I was young, but my parents told me that I was in love with ET and even had an ET-themed birthday party when I was like 4. Awesome list, Mike! 😉

    • Thank you so much for the compliments, Dana! Yes, Oprah was amazing in The Color Purple – she was at a weight loss clinic when she got the call for the part and had to leave immediately to start filming. A Leo Top 10, huh? I will look into that 🙂

  34. Yeah for your Top 10 being back! Absolutely love Indiana Jones (but, hated the last one, the number four that is). And Catch me if you can is one of my favorite movie ever!

    • I didn’t care much for #4 either, Rita, though they were trying to do something “different”…I didn’t see it. I just heard the other day that there are going to be a couple more Indiana movies coming up as deal Harrison Ford made for doing Star Wars in 2015! 🙂

  35. He certainly has made some HUGE movies. I haven’t seen Lincoln yet – I must get it out on DVD. As for Temple of Doom – that was my least liked movie of the Indiana series.
    Have a great week. and thanks for stopping by my blog today.

    • I completely agree with you on Temple of Doom, Jill! I think you will really like Lincoln as Day-Lewis did an amazing job. Thank you always for stopping by as well! 🙂

  36. What an awesome list, I have seen nearly all of these and loved them all.

    • Thank you so much, Freya! We really appreciate that. It’s great when a reader has seen most of what we put on these Top 10’s or that they are enticed to go see what they haven’t 🙂

  37. I am so lame! I think ET is the only one of these I have seen from start to end.
    I did realize he directed some of these. Going to have to actually watch Indiana Jones one day. Yes, lame!

    • Not lame at all, Tony. Totally understandable on having/not having the time in life for some folks! I do hope you get to watch the trilogy…it’s really good 🙂

  38. Ok, Lincoln has been on my list for a WHILE now, so gotta get on that! But I realllllyyyyyy loved Catch Me If You Can, especially when they made a Broadway musical out of it! Go Spielberg!:-)

    • Well, if I lived in NYC you guys could borrow my copy of Lincoln, Jess! And yes Catch Me If You Can was absolutely brilliant 🙂

  39. I haven’t seen Amistad or Munich. Going to have to change that! Very nice trivia!!!

    • Thank you on the trivia compliment Hugh! I hope you those two movies when you get time, sir 🙂

  40. There’s no one Spielberg, and there’s no doubt about it. Thanks for this outstanding list! Catch Me If You Can is one of my all-time favourites.

    • Completely agree with you on Spielberg, Tarana! And wow tons of Catch Me If You Can fans here. Awesome! Great to hear from you 🙂

  41. Was on your 2nd part & jumped over here to catch the 1st. Some seriously great movies here Mike!! Of course like you I was introduced to the genius of Spielberg with his fishing expedition! lol. I can still remember jumping and screaming my head off & avoiding trips to the beach the first year!! lmao. But unlike some of your other commenters. I’ve been fortunate enough to see everyone of these movies and even the Spielberg movies not mentioned here. The Goonies is one of my favorites as well!! And The Color Purple well….to this day I’ve yet to find a movie that matches it. Great post Mike sharing this now as we head off to Part 2 😉

    • How wonderful to hear from Mathair! You’re my new best friend of the day for seeing all of these like me! It’s so amazing how Spielberg’s career may have never even occurred because Jaws was on the brink of being called off for being over budget. All the adminstrators back in Hollywood wanted the project cancelled about a month prior to completion and to cut their losses. Wow…that makes ya think, huh? Thank you for the compliment always! 🙂

  42. My husband used to work for Industrial Light & Magic (when we met) and later on he worked for Lucas Arts.
    I remember he’d give office tours out in California and I saw that Spielberg had an office next to George Lucas for any of their collaborating.
    I’d get the nervous giggles up there, for sure.
    I need to see Part II next because I haven’t seen all of these! Although the E.T. ride is still my favorite at Universal Studios, even though it made my daughter scream. She had to ride a roller coaster to get over her E.T. fears. Who knew?!

    • LOL! That’s funny on your daughter getting over her fears with a roller coaster! And it’s ironic because the little girl in E.T. was initially frightened too, Tamara!

      No way on your husband working there! Omg I would have wanted to be his best friend to be able to go there ha, ha! I bet he has so many awesome stories to tell!

      Part II was posted a couple weekends ago so it’s there anytime you wish to read it! So awesome to hear from you 🙂

  43. Oh yes….I have seen some of these Spielberg movies 😉
    I love E.T. – its my all time favorite movie ever and one that I could watch over and over again.
    The colour Purple – a movie that I watched a long time ago, would like to re-watch that one to remember what it was all about.
    Indiana Jones were such good movies – actually I need to hire those series for my boys to see 🙂

    • You can never go wrong with a classic like E.T., Lisa. I can watch the Indiana Jones movies over and over…especially #1 and #3 🙂
