  • I love all of Spielberg’s films. It is so hard to pick a favorite. I think he did such a great job with so many tough subjects. Schindler’s List is probably my favorite.

  • I thought I commented on this already, but must not have. I love all of Spielberg’s movies, my all time favorite is E.T. it’s one of the movies I begged my parents to watch over and over!

  • ET is definitely a favorite. Also love Star Wars and Raiders of the Lost Ark

  • Favorite Spielberg movie? That’s not a hard question at all is it? Amistad and Saving Private Ryan were my favorite intense movies of his. Hook and Indiana Jones were great adventure movies. ET had a little bit of everything though. Saw it more than any other movie in the theater and at home after my son discovered it at age 3 or 4. Over and over. John Williams score takes it out of this world. Would love to hear it live.

  • E.T is definitely one of my childhood favorites. We took a family trip to Universal Studios and I introduced my kids to E.T the ride. Unfortunately, they didn’t understand why he wanted to “phone home”

  • I love the movie E. T. It was my favorite movie as a child and is still one of my all time favorites. My family and I would thoroughly enjoy the show and I would especially love to hear the orchestra!! Thank you for this opportunity! 🙂

  • Goonies is my favorite, but the Indiana Jones movies and Close Encounters are right up there.

  • Love all Spielberg’s films but ET is my favorite. Elliott was my first crush!

  • My favorite Steven Spielberg movie is Jurassic Park! I can still watch that one over and over.

  • Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom is my favorite Spielberg movie!

  • Jaws and E.T. changed my life as a kid. I watched them all the time and was pretty much obsessed! E.T. was my fav as a kid for sure though. I wanted to be like Elliott so bad and experience that kind of love. It made me believe in the impossible and that even children can achieve great things!

  • Growing up I loved Indiana Jones and of course E.T….then came Jurassic Park.

  • I gotta go with Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, but it’s a tough choice! So many good Spielberg films!!

  • Oh my goodness… There are so many great Spielberg movies. Hook and Goonies are favorites of the kids. I loved Catch me if you can. But ET has to top the list. What an awesome movie.

  • E.T. IS my absolute Favorite of everything he has made!!! I put my niece onto it about 2 years ago. To this day she still says that it’s still her favorite too AND Frozen of course!!! When she was younger the movie used to scare her and that’s why I waited a few years until I thought she was ready and SHE WAS! This would be such an awesome surprise to take her to. I might even let her pick 2 other friends to bring with her, lol. That is IF she can get him to not go because he’s the biggest fan of the movie I know. Thanks for the awesome contest and I’ll be keeping my fingers and toes crossed that I win!! 😊😁

  • My family has been to devil’s tower, so i think close encounters of the third kind is my favorite.
