Watch: A Cool 10-Minute Tribute to the Films of Steven Spielberg

On this Memorial Day, let's take a look at the filmography of a director who has paid fitting tribute to those who have lost their lives fighting for our country in films like Saving Private Ryan and miniseries like "Band of Brothers" and 'The Pacific" on HBO. Steven Spielberg might very well be the most recognizable and well-known director in modern cinema, and his name acts as a seal of approval for the films and TV series that he produces as well. Now a tribute video has been put together in honor of Spielberg by editing a 10-minute montage using clips from all the films Spielberg has directed. Watch it!
As you may have noticed, the video only covers the years 1971-2011, because it was posted online in the summer of 2012, before Spielberg's most recent film, Lincoln, had hit theaters. Even so, this is a fantastic piece of work that runs through the director's incredible filmography. One of my favorite parts of the video is how some clips from films like The Terminal and Catch Me If You Can have been inserted in the montage in such a way that changes their tone and execution completely because of the music from master composer John Williams that Cooper used throughout the video. Now we just want to rewatch all of them.

A brilliant mind.

So much brilliance, so many memories. Watching this also makes me forgive him the horrible Temple of Doom and the last Indy movie. 🙂 On a side note: Spielberg would be nothing without Williams music. Just saying...

I wish the creator would redo this using the original version of E.T. instead of the dumb 2002 CGI version (and taking out the silly extra Halloween footage that was added). That really keeps this from being enjoyable to me. Also replace the weak rerecording of the Jaws music with the real thing.
