For as successful a filmmaker as Steven Spielberg has become over decades of work, even his magic touch sometimes misfires. Despite the positive reviews that Bridge Of Spies has been accruing lately, it looks like the film is destined to sit in the dustier part of the Spielberg canon. If this comes to pass, fans of the film can at least take comfort that it’s in some pretty good company in that respect. Here now are the 5 Steven Spielberg movies that deserve more credit than they’ve been given.

Lost
The Lost World: Jurassic Park
So Jurassic Park is a firing-on-all-cylinders thrill ride that pretty much continued Steven Spielberg’s reputation as a blockbuster filmmaker. There is no way that The Lost World: Jurassic Park could have ever topped that original film, and it never tries to in any way. Instead, Spielberg takes what could have been a studio mandated sequel and turns it into a safari picture for 75% of the time, with an homage to Godzilla movies in the other 25%. If you can look at it from that sort of perspective, instead of trying to compare it to its older, more successful sibling, you‘ll find that it’s a thrilling ride of a film. Besides, it’s not Jurassic Park III, so that should count for something.
