After seeing the documentary Spielberg, based on the legendary Ohio director, it got me thinking about the huge array of work Steven Spielberg has directed. In one of my early posts I created a quiz based on films he’s been involved in away from the camera, but he’s certainly earned a more full-scale celebration. How many do you recognise?

I knew you would. Asking you to rank them would be tougher haha. What would your top 3 and bottom 3 be?
very tough, but id probably say Saving Private Ryan, Schindlers list and Jurassic park but the Indiana Jones trilogy would be very close behind
It was a tough question haha. I’m not even sure I could answer it myself.
I just missed Munich.
An awesome score. I’ve not seen it either.
I have seen it, but totally forgot it.
Great quiz, Alex! I got 14.
That’s your best score.! Fantastic stuff 🙂 He has had so many classics. Which one stumped you?
Whoopee – I got 10 – some of which I hadn’t seen 🙂 Duel I have seen and really enjoyed several times on TV
The short story is really good but what Spielberg does with the film is incredible. And for a TV movie at the start of his career!
I got 14. I somehow missed the first one. I didn’t have problem with Munich.
Very impressive stuff. Duel is great if you get the chance btw.
Haven’t seen 11,12 & 13 but got all the rest 🙂
He’s got some collection hasn’t he? Which is your favourite?
Hah! As if! Looking forward to Ready Player One!
Missed the first one, and never heard of it either! Great quiz!
Duel’s great. It’s a very simple story, done very very well. Great score.
Great quiz! I got 12 out of 15. I missed Empire of the Sun, Munich, and War Horse. Spielberg is a wonderful filmmaker!!
A natural storyteller. As good a top 10 as any filmmaker. Which is the one you’ve seen most?
Just one wrong! (the first one, which I don’t think I’d even heard of :O )
That stumped a few people. A really good film if you get the chance. It’s about a pyscho truck driver who randomly gets angry at a driver and starts behaving super aggresively towards him on the road.
I only got 9. Not bad but I was thinking I would get more.
He’s had some wonderful films, especially in the first half of his career. He’s been involved in some other great ones like the Back to the Future trilogy, The Goonies, Who Framed Roger Rabbit and True Grit.
Got 10! So happy that Duel was part of this list! One of my absolute faves! 🙂
Yeah, superb film. So much tension. Dennis Weaver must have been sick of driving by the end haha.
11/15… not bad!
Solid stuff Abbi.
I would have had a perfect score, but I couldn’t remember the correct name of number seven.
Horrible when that happens. Superb stuff though.
Thank you my friend.
I got 7. No prize! 😀
One of your higher scores 😃
Yes. There was 1 higher, maybe about women directors? Anyway, now that I’m here, I’ll look for another quiz! They are quite fun. 😀
So glad you enjoy them. I’ve covered al kinds of actors, themes and occasions.
Yes, you have!
Thanks for noticing 😃
