    Great telling of newspaper courage -- a companion-piece to "Spotlight". The audience applauded.

    If you like history watch this movie. This is not a story, it really happened. The freedom of the press is the base of the story. What made this movie interesting to me is that after WWII the Truman administration paid the French to fight the beginning of the Vietnam war. Every President afterward backed the war for 30 years. The New Times and Katherine Grahamís Washington Post put their news paperís reputation on the chopping block. Graham and others faced prison if they lost the judgement. She banked her trust on the Supreme Court and the 4 amendment. The Post and NY Times won that battle of that day but powers that be today may win out this time. What was Spielberg message to viewers? Not sure only time will tell. He showed how women of that day were locked out of most business decisions. Get coffee, type a memo, stand behind closed doors that what women jobs are but certainly do not stand up to attorneys and board members or the President. Many news publishers along with their neighbors children were overseas fighting that war. I was up for the draft and my older brother and young men we knew were serving in the military at that time. Everyday I would read the news paper to see how many boys were killed and hoping for the safety of my brother. The only real issue to me at the time was the draft. Today Iím 65 and able to see that The Post brings forth many more issues. I say itís a thinking mans/womanís movie.

    The Commuter

    good action, and acting. However! falls short in the story and the predictability of the movie is almost cheesy. Could almost have been a made for TV movie. Just poor execution.

    I watched the movie Saturday the 13th. I was graduating from high school when the Washington Post and New York Times took on President Nixon. Afterwards the Post broke open the Water Gate break in story which ended Nixonís Presidentcy. Similar events are taking place today. Only this country will never be the same whether Trump survives his term or gets impeached. I highly recommend younger people watch this movie. The roller coaster ride begins

    With only one percent of our folks serving in our military it is an opportunity to see how our dedicated soldiers serve.

    I went to the first showing on Friday and was surprised to find the theater nearly sold out. Overall a great story well told. Until this I did not realize what courage it took for Ms. Graham to publish these papers. I doubt today's Supreme Court will role as they did then.

    This in movie on 3D format was excellent. Except seating near to a man who was trying to copy the movie with his cell phone on. They asked him to leave. Please donít use your cell phones during a movie.
