It’s Oscars season and we’re reviewing the Academy’s big category picks. ‘The Post’ (starring Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep) is directed by Steven Spielberg and has nominations for Best Picture and Best Actress (Streep.).
“Katharine Graham is the first female publisher of a major American newspaper — The Washington Post. With help from editor Ben Bradlee, Graham races to catch up with The New York Times to expose a massive cover-up of government secrets that spans three decades and four U.S. presidents. Together, they must overcome their differences as they risk their careers — and very freedom — to help bring long-buried truths to light.”
We put the movie through our critically acclaimed rating system, which grades based on four categories:
1. Did we like it?
2. How did everyone look?
3. Will we steal stuff from it?
4. Is it problematic?
Here’s how it played out:
- Darkest Hour
- Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
- The Shape of Water
- Get Out
- Call Me By Your Name
