CRAIG'S TOP 10 GENRE SERIES - ADVENTURE

“Adventure films are a genre of film. Unlike pure, low-budget action films they often use their action scenes preferably to display and explore exotic locations in an energetic way.”

#2. KING KONG - 2005
 Director: Peter Jackson

#4. ROBIN HOOD: PRINCE OF THIEVES - 1991

#5. JURASSIC PARK - 1993

#6. PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL - 2003

#7. THE MUMMY - 1999

#8. JUMANJI - 1995

#9. THE GOONIES - 1985
 Director: Richard Donner

#10. HOOK - 1991
Director: Steven Spielberg
Starring: Robin Williams, Dustin Hoffman, Julia Roberts


Another fascinating list with some popular films which my sister will probably approve of apart from the number 2 of course but INDIANA JONES was never going to lose this and though RAIDERS is the most cherished of that series, TEMPLE is more entertaining and has about everything you could want from an adventure film. Plus Steven Spielberg knows this genre well with half the films on the list vacated by his contribution to cinema, one of the all time greats. Next list will be ANIMATION!
