Immersion celebrates the talented director’s oeuvre with Jurassic Park’s 3D re-release this weekend.
Although he is the greatest living American director today, Spielberg has experienced his share of critical disapproval: Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (Temple of Doom doesn’t stand up to other two, either), Amistad (for gross historical inaccuracies), The Lost World: Jurassic Park (he pulled a Gus Van Sant and miscast Vince Vaughn) and A.I. Artificial Intelligence (tried too hard to be Stanley Kubrick, his collaborator on the film). However, let’s take a look on the brilliant portion of his career. BTW- John Williams scored nine out of the ten movies below (Quincy Jones did The Color Purple. Honorable mention: Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989), Minority Report (2002), Catch Me if You Can (2002) and War Horse (2011).
