Reviewing Another Major Oscars Contender – “The Post” [VIDEO]
I always talk about award season and how I set out to watch every major awards contender on the film side. This is due to my love of movies but also being able to understand what it is everyone is talking about for a few months.
One of the most talked about movies as of late is "The Post" - a true story based on the Washington Post and their role in exposing government corruption. The film follows the higher-ups at the paper as they wrestle with the idea of publishing the Pentagon Papers.
The film stars Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks, along with several other huge stars. Behind the camera sits Steven Spielberg. Enough said. (P.S. All of them were nominated at the Golden Globes for their work on this film.)
Let's be honest - I would watch any and every Hanks movie and love each one dearly. I will say this is a different kind of role for him that he doesn't play often.
Movies like this often get a lot of buzz but sometimes they don't deliver. Does "The Post" live up to all the hype? Watch my review above!
