Steven Spielberg has had a career spanning 6 decades, and a filmography that has, taken together, been nominated for more than 100 major awards. He is perhaps the defining director of his generation, and the man behind such classic, iconic films as "Jaws," "Close Encounters of the Third Kind," "E.T.," "Minority Report," "Jurassic Park," "Saving Private Ryan," "Schindler's List" and, of course, the Indiana Jones series.

Though he's perhaps best remembered for his science-fiction films, Spielberg's career has been remarkably diverse, including historical dramas (such as "Empire of the Sun" and "The Color Purple"), espionage thrillers (for example, "Munich") and even animation ("The Adventures of Tintin," a collaboration with "Lord of the Rings" director Peter Jackson.)

The list of all Spielberg films below is VoteRanked, so your selections will determine the final order. Give your favorites a thumbs up and send your least-favorites to the bottom. Unless it's "1941," which is actually a pretty solid movie that has been unfairly maligned!
