The Steven Spielberg Quiz.

Hollywood icons come and go. Rarely does an icon of cinema manage to remain as central to the industry as Steven Spielberg has. Often called one of the great American filmmakers, Spielberg has managed to whisk audiences away on incredible voyages for decades. Yet, his career still shows no signs of slowing. Some of the most revered film franchises of the latter half of the 20th Century have Spielberg at least partially to thank for their success. Not a man to shy away from genre, he manages to embody such a diverse array of moods and tones in his work that his versatility behind a camera is nearly unmatched.

There is a reason the name Spielberg is so synonymous with blockbuster movies. Without Spielberg, who knows in what direction popular cinema would have developed.
