The Fabelmans: Steven Spielberg Gets Personal

This week Jim and Teal enter the Spielboctagon. Their mission: tackle the entire Steven Spielberg filmography. Spoiler alert! They don’t get very far. But in this first, of at least two episodes (who knows how long it will take them to get through every movie) they dive straight into Steven Spielberg’s latest offering, The Fabelmans. 

You may not know it from the awful movie trailer, but The Fabelmans is a great film, and certainly Spielberg’s most personal. Gut wrenching at times, inspiring at others, this is a movie that needs to be seen, and Jim and Teal hope you do go and search it out.

In addition to The Fabelmans, Jim and Teal tackle the early part of Spielberg’s movie career, including his made for TV film, Duel, his first feature film, The Sugarland Express, his massive hits, Jaws and Close Encounters of the Third Kind, and his first miss fire, the 1979 comedy, 1941.
