Paul's Trip To The Movies97 - Spielberg and his top-notch cast are firing on all cylinders delivering a topical and well-crafted film.

Michigan Movie Guy Silent Bob97(full review)
Sean Kelly90 - Like Spotlight, The Post is a film that celebrates journalism and the now dying breed of newspapers. With the media being criticized on a near daily basic, The Post is a film that really must be seen to demonstrate the importance of the freedom of the press.

Keith Noakes90 - Overall, this was an important and timely film that arguably preaches a little too much at times that is still compelling to watch thanks to Streep, Hanks, and Spielberg but loses its emotional impact at the expense of its message.
