    No 1…JAWS. By far the best movie on this list. Independence Day is cringeworthy bad.

  12. Jean Luc Picard

    "Including the Empire Strikes Back", which is actually the lowest grossing of the original trilogy and was as hated among many die-hard fans as "The Last Jedi" is hated now. Just putting that out there.

    WatchMojo, you need to work on your ranking system a little better. For this list, you did manage to capture the top 15 for sure, but there are a few that should've made the list. For catering for a Summer Blockbuster list, you're going to have to be a little bit tighter. Both Jurassic Park AND Jurassic World should be on this list. The Avengers should be listed here as well. As far as #1 goes, you've switched 1 and 2 around. Yes, Star Wars, the first movie should be on the list, but Jaws defined summer blockbuster movies, so therefore you're robbing viewers of real cinema history!! Seriously?????

    So technically summer blockbusters wouldn't exist if it wasn't for Steven Spielberg. Awesome!
