Mr. Spielberg is perhaps one of the most recognisable faces in Hollywood today. Equipped with a catalogue of well-renowned and critically acclaimed films in his belt, it’s fair to say that the 70-year-old filmmaker is one of our best – which makes it extremely embarrassing when a self-proclaimed cinephile (me) has only seen a handful of his works.

Here are the handful of his films that I’ve already seen:

  • Saving Private Ryan (1998)
  • Schindler’s List (1993)
  • Jurassic Park (1993)
  • E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982)
  • War of the Worlds (2005)

So it’s about time I sat my 20-year-old ass in a comfy seat and endure what The Berg has to offer. Here are the Spielberg films that I hope to watch over the next month:

  • Catch Me If You Can (2002)
  • A.I. Artificial Intelligence (2001)
  • Minority Report (2002)
  • The Sugarland Express (1974)
  • Duel (1971)
  • Jaws (1975)
  • 1941 (1979)
  • Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977)
  • Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)
  • Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984)
  • Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989)
  • Lincoln (2012)
  • Bridge of Spies (2015)
  • Always (1989)
