* GirlsHaveCooties: While females are sometimes present in Spielberg's films most of the time they are either absent (''Film/{{Jaws}}'', ''Film/CloseEncountersOfTheThirdKind'', ''Film/SavingPrivateRyan''), in minor supporting roles (''Film/SchindlersList'', ''Film/{{Lincoln}}''), a DamselInDistress and/or depicted as nuisances who prevent the boys from having a great adventure (''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheTempleOfDoom'', ''Film/ETTheExtraTerrestrial'', ''Film/{{Hook}}''). Even in ''Jurassic Park'' Alex the girl is more frightened than her younger brother, describing dinosaurs as ''monsters'' and only in the very end she finally does something heroic to save the day.

[[note]]Though this is actually an upgrade from her character in [[Literature/JurassicPark the book]], in which Lex is the annoying younger sibling, and Tim performed the heroic actions that Lex did in the movie.[[/note]] Only three of Spielberg's films feature female leads: ''Film/TheSugarlandExpress'', ''Film/TheColorPurple'', and ''Film/TheBFG''.

** One of the very rare straight examples (combined with NakedPeopleAreFunny) is actually a parody of a FanDisservice scene in an earlier Spielberg film. In the opening scene of ''Film/{{Jaws}}'', a young woman goes skinny-dipping on a beach in the early hours of the morning, only to be eaten by a shark. In the opening scene of ''Film/{{1941}}'', a young woman goes skinny-dipping on a beach in the early hours of the morning [[spoiler: only to be rather surprised by a surfacing Japanese submarine; unlike in the previous scene, she escapes after suffering nothing more than a NakedFreakOut.]] Bonus points because it was the same actress in both scenes.

In 1994, he was a co-founder of the studio [[Creator/DreamWorks DreamWorks SKG]] alongside Creator/{{Disney}} studio chairman Jeffrey Katzenberg and record producer David Geffin. Dreamworks and Spielberg (as producer) would later go on to make the first ''VideoGame/MedalOfHonor'' video game, widely regarded as the [=PS1=]'s ''[[VideoGame/GoldenEye1997 GoldenEye]]''. He still runs [[VanityPlate Amblin Entertainment]]. Now works on a live-action ''Franchise/GhostInTheShell'' adaption, a work he has said he is fond of.

Spielberg went on to make ''Film/{{Hook}}'' in 1991, and ''Franchise/JurassicPark'' in 1993 (his ''third'' time making the most successful movie of all time), which revolutionized the use of CG animation in film. ''Film/SchindlersList'' in the same year won the Best Picture Oscar and is treasured all over the world to this day, ''Film/SavingPrivateRyan'' won a handful of Oscars itself, and the controversial ''Film/AIArtificialIntelligence'' saw him taking over directorial reins from his good friend Creator/StanleyKubrick, who died in mid-production. ''Film/CatchMeIfYouCan'' re-teamed him with Creator/TomHanks from ''Film/SavingPrivateRyan'', and became another acclaimed hit.
