Out of all the Spielberg films in all the world (well, out of the list I provided), your favorite movie is . . .
Raiders of the Lost Ark!
Despite some people’s belief that Raiders had this one in the bag, this poll was actually a pretty close race. Raiders of the Lost Ark only beat Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade by one vote, and The Last Crusade only beat Jurassic Park by one vote. Fourth place honorable mentions are shared by Jaws, Schindler’s List, and Hook (despite some serious distaste for Hook in the comments section).
It should also be noted that there was some write-in love for Temple of Doom, which I had decided not to add to the poll because, well, I didn’t think I needed to. I still don’t think that it would have won over Raiders OR The Last Crusade, but hey. I like the movie too.
Also: every nominee got at least one vote. This man’s movies have been incredibly popular. We’ll see if this continues with one of Spielberg’s upcoming projects, which is a historical film about President Abraham Lincoln. I have to be honest, though. Despite Spielberg’s impressive prowess, I’m much more interested in this version of Lincoln’s life:
Hopefully coming to a theater near you in 2012!
