Announcing: Saturdays with Spielberg, A New Marathon Devoted to the Films of Steven Spielberg

Okay, but enough kissing ass.  The real reason we’re doing this marathon is mostly do to my short siightedness.  I hate to say it, but I haven’t seen all of Steven Spielberg’s films.  Yeah, I’ve seen the big ones, but there’s always the 1941’s and the Empire Under the Sun’s that slipped through the cracks.  So to fill in the gaps (and in anticipation of his return to cinema after a four year hiatus), I decided to watch his entire filmography, from start (Duel) to temporary finish (War Horse). And since I can’t keep things to myself, I’m going to share my thoughts with you, the wonderful readers of TheMoviePool.  Don’t mention it.  I hope you join me for what is sure to be an exciting, educational, and entertaining look into one of the world’s premiere directors.
