Steven Spielberg is a legend. Over his 50 year career, he has taken audiences on adventures with Indiana Jones, brought dinosaurs back to life in Jurassic Park, and showed us the horrors of war in Schindler’s List and Saving Private Ryan. As a director and producer, he has brought countless films and television series to the masses. It’s almost impossible to create a top films list and not include several Steven Spielberg movies. Here are some of the greatest movie scenes of all time from Steven Spielberg movies.
01) Jurassic Park: T-Rex Scene (1993)
The T-Rex scene in Jurassic Park is one of the greatest movie scenes of all time when it comes to intensity. The scene slowly builds as the tyrannosaurus rex approaches the two grandchildren (Ariana Richards and Joseph Mazzello) who are trapped in an SUV. They don’t help the situation by shining a flashlight in the dinosaur’s eyes. The kids do their best to hold off the T-Rex even resorting to holding the sunroof glass in between them. Then Dr. Grant (Sam Neill) and Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum) use rescue flares to distract the dinosaur and help the children escape. Unfortunately, the scene doesn’t end well for the lawyer, Mr. Gennaro (Martin Ferrero). He is eaten after his hiding spot in the outhouse is revealed.
02) Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade: Leap Of Faith (1989)
As Indiana Jones closes in on finding the Holy Grail, he comes to a deep cavern with no visible way across. The distance is too far to jump across and the clue in his father’s journal says “Only in the leap from the lion’s head will he prove his worth.” After realizing the jump is physically impossible, Indy takes a “Leap Of Faith”.
03) E.T.: The Goodbye (1982)
04) Close Encounters Of The Third Kind: Surrounded (1977)
05) Jaws: Get Out Of The Water (1975)
