     March 30, 2018

Now that our Top 50 Superhero Movies of All Time list has come and gone, it’s on to the next! But this time around, we’re putting the spotlight on one specific filmmaker – one of the best of all-time, Steven Spielberg. From 1975’s Jaws, which started the summer blockbuster phenomenon, to 2017’s Academy Award-nominated The Post, Spielberg has moved audiences with his rich, emotional stories, thrilled them with some incredible action sequences; made them think with his political dramas and inspired them to explore a world beyond our own. Along the way, he has won three Oscars with one coming in the Best Picture category for Schindler’s List and two in the Best Director category for Schindler’s List and Saving Private Ryan.

It stars Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Kingsley, Embeth Davidtz, and Caroline Goodall. The film is set in German-occupied Poland during World War II, where Oskar Schindler gradually becomes concerned for his Jewish workforce after witnessing their persecution by the Nazi Germans.
