The Post--67pts. Spielberg is such a hackneyed director. It's like he's directing for children. And curse the great Roger Deakins for bringing us the curse of digital color correction First seen in O Brother, Where Art Thou?, its misuse continues today. It's the modern equivalent of having things jump out of the screen in a 3D movie. If you could actually pour color correction thickly out of a can it would look like the opening scenes with the "aged" Viet Nam shots.
How in the world did Meryl Streep ever develop this reputation of a great actress? Here she appears as she often does Meryl Streep pretending to be someone. If you want to see someone inhabit a role watch (of all people) Jack Black in the sublimely ridiculous bio-pics, Bernie and The Polka King.
Why do you even bother watching Spielberg films? You have no doubt already decided you don't like the films before ET even rides in front of the moon across the screen.
I was thinking much the same. I actually watched this film on a plane and enjoyed it for what it was.
