The Good, The Bad, and the Bogus: Steven Spielberg Movies
Legendary filmmaker Steven Spielberg has not one but two films out this holiday season, the live action World War I epic War Horse and the motion capture fantasy The Adventures of Tintin. While it remains to be seen whether either film is among his best, there's no doubt that the director's previous effort, 2008's Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, left a bad taste in a lot of viewers' mouths and was not one of his better efforts.
As great as Spielberg is -- and he's had more than his share of superb films -- he's just like every other artist who has their ups and downs. Along with great entries like Munich or E.T., his resume is dotted with both moderately entertaining clunkers and films that are just a chore to sit through. With more than two dozen films to his name, here is a look at some of the good, the bad and the completely bogus works of Steven Spielberg.
