Inspired by real events - Katharine Graham is the first female publisher of a major American newspaper when she takes over The Washington Post. Long-time editor Ben Bradlee comes across the story of a lifetime - The Pentagon Papers, a massive government cover-up of Vietnam that spans three decades and involves four presidents. The story has implications that could not only harm their careers, but their very lives - as well as the future of the newspaper itself. -- Chris Kavan

The pacing is bit rough at times, but the story is clearly meant to reflect how the story of the Pentagon Papers, and the newspapers involved with it, are a direct parallel to what is happening today with the phrase "fake news" being thrown around like so much confetti. It's a powerful, important story - one that is too often bogged down for its own good - but the cast is there, Spielberg is there - might as well experience it... while you can.

Steven Spielberg is my favorite director. But he was clearly on auto-pilot with this blantant example of Oscar-bait. Granted, given that it is a Spielberg movie, it's well made and the acting isn't bad. It's too bad the plot is predictable and hackneyed with its 'freedom of the press' message. Timely? Yes but without genuine passion outside of Oscar buzz, it is quite tiresome after a while. Still, Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep together is its best asset and that part never gets old.

Good material and well execution. I knew what was about to happen (the ending) but the direction and performances were brilliant that the thrill and suspense were still felt. Freedom of the press is a good subject of debate nowadays making this film so relevant. Lastly, I like the feminist undertone of the script!

"The Post" by Yojimbo

When US government documents come to light that cast doubt upon the motives behind and the validity of the Vietnam war, the owner and editor of The Washington Post must weigh the risk of prosecution and ruin against their principles and the very concept of freedom of the press.

It is clearly no accident that Steven Spielberg chose to tell this particular story at this particular time. While the institutions that protect American democracy are under attack from the very highest level - mentioning no names - this story certainly strikes a chord, as does the journey of Meryl Streep's initially timid inheritor of the paper from the ignored and patronized to the tough decision-making leader by example. I am a true believer in all of these principles, but even to me the tone felt rather prea...

The Post - Review

This was work to get through.

I mean, great performances all around, except for Tom Hanks which I will explain later. Meryl Streep, Bob Odenkirk, and Sarah Paulson were fantastic, having standout moments through out as all three carry the film on their shoulders. With Tom Hanks, not saying he was bad, just easily the weak link and failed to impress me. Nothing about his performance felt natural and came across too forced in certain scenes.

"The Post" tackles a serious subject matter and easily sheds light on relevant topics of today, hence why it was rushed into production - too bad it's not that memorable for any future discussion, which is unfortunate .

At the moment, Spielberg makes factor type films. While not a hack, but lost his prime. I will continue to watch his...
