Podcast: Bridge of Spies, Top 3 Spielbergian Moments, Crimson Peak – Episode 139

This podcast is brought to you Paypal and our awesome listener’s like you! Thanks for your support!

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, DJ Valentine sits in for JD who is out on paternity leave and also Mike Denniston from War Machine vs War Horse joins us to discuss Steven Spielberg’s latest, Bridge of Spies. Going off of that, we also discuss our Top 3 “Spielbergian” moments, because, well, there’s only one Steven Spielberg. And to finish out the show this week, we forgo our discussion segment for a review of Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak.

Big thanks to DJ and Mike for filling in this week and offering some great insights as usual. As an outsider, I (JD) really enjoyed the Top 3 discussion, it was really fun and pretty diverse. I hope I haven’t lost my job.

Anyway, check out this week’s show and let us know what you think in the comment section. Thanks for listening and thanks for supporting of the InSession Film Podcast!

Top 3 Spielbergian Moments (38:00)
Spielberg has certainly been known for his unique fingerprint that you can certainly see in all of his films, making him one of the best filmmakers of all time. And depending on how you look at it, “Spielbergian” could mean several different things. Perhaps his sentimentality that he’s known for? Or his amazing action set pieces? Or perhaps it’s his world building that you love? Either way, there’s a lot to choose from and the conversation was quite interesting. That being said, what would be your Top 3?
