50. List 'em up: Steven Spielberg w/ Helen O'Hara


Aug 19 2021 • 1 hr 30 mins

Jurassic Park; Saving Private Ryan; Indiana Jones; ET; Jaws...the list goes on. Steven Spielberg if one of the biggest directors in movie history and for our milestone 50th episode we've been joined by Editor-at-Large for Empire Magazine Helen O'Hara to discuss a Top Ten list of the directors filmography.

In light of the recent animated Marvel show, we ask a lot of intriguing questions:
What if The Rock was in a Close Encounters remake? What if Indiana Jones had fought a monkey king? And what if Gwilym didn't include ET in his list?
The news is overshadowed by some Wes Anderson castings and we talk nothing but Nicolas Cage in the trailer section as the ironic trailer of the week is for 'Prisoners of the Ghostland' (watch here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1I6p1yxZ_LE)

So join us for an episode in which 1/3 of us discuss Steven Spielberg in expert detail and the other 2/3 in a less intellectual fashion. It's full of temperamental sharks, flying aliens, Toms (Hanks & Cruise) and piles and piles of mash potato...it's a Jurassic episode that you really don't want to miss.
