Hooray! May the Comment Party Begin Again...

And there was much rejoicing. I can "hear" you all again. You can hear each other. We didn't expect to take a vow of collective silence but I had just watched Novitiate, that movie about the nuns, in which The LEOgend is very very upset when people talk during conversation blackout periods so perhaps I spiritually triggered it? Anyway... Please Say Something To End The Silence.

Women of "The Post"

By Spencer Coile 

There is a scene during a climactic moment in The Post where Katharine Graham (Meryl Streep), publisher for The Washington Post, wades into a crowd. News outlets and reporters swarm around her, probing her decision to run an article exposing the U.S. government for their involvement in the Pentagon Papers. Without uttering a word, she glides past the press, but the camera slows as Katharine finds herself surrounded by a small group of women in this crowd, all staring at her with admiration. 

The Post serves as a timely reminder for why we should never underestimate the impact one powerful woman can make. Though Katharine Graham is the central female focus of the film, Spielberg's latest work features multiple women: they are reporters, wives, mothers, daughters. Each character provides insight into this pivotal moment in American history. So how does The Post honor their legacy?

Take a Magical Ride in the Latest Look at Mary Poppins Returns

Disney has released a new image from Mary Poppins Returns, which showcases a ton of the new cast members having themselves what appears to be a very fun time. Disney has been a hit-making machine in recent years, the likes of which Hollywood has never seen. While doing a remake of the classic Mary Poppins would be downright blasphemous, they're doing the more acceptable but equally risky thing by releasing a sequel this Christmas. This new photo offers us a glimpse of what's in store.

The photo features some of the younger cast members from the sequel, alongside Lin-Manuel Miranda's character and Emily Blunt, who has the very difficult task of living up to Julie Andrews' legacy in Mary Poppins Returns. That said, this photo, and everything we've seen and heard for that matter, points to Blunt being perfect for the role. Her co-star Ben Whishaw seems to think so,

It seems like something out of our wildest dreams, and yet it's somehow very real.  The Post tells the strange but true story of how the Washington Post went against protocol (and the law) to publish leaked government documents about the futility of the Vietnam War. Many directors would be wary to take on such heavy material, but it obviously didn't deter Spielberg at all. Rounding up a best-of-the-best cast, he has crafted a thrilling and rather timely movie about the freedom of the press.

The Post Review

Author: Stefan Pape

It was only two years ago that Spotlight won Best Picture at the Academy Awards, a film about journalists searching for the truth in the face of adversity. Now, it’s a territory that Steven Spielberg has delved into himself, to make an intelligent, entertaining drama that is so gloriously cinematic and unrelentingly fast-paced. It’s a bit like Spotlight, just played on fast forward.

Meryl Streep plays Kay Graham, the first female newspaper publisher, who runs the Washington Post, finding herself unwittingly caught up in a battle between the truth, and the Government. Her enterprising, stubborn editor Ben Bradlee (Tom Hanks), along with his team of diligent reporters, have somehow got their hands on the Pentagon Papers, a revealing document that unravels corruption and lies concerning politicians and the military – going back as far as The White House. The New York Times have the story too,

Movie Review – The Post (2017)

The Post, 2017.

Directed by Steven Spielberg.

Starring Tom Hanks, Meryl Streep, Sarah Paulson, Bob Odenkirk, Tracy Letts, Bradley Whitford, Michael Stuhlbarg, Jesse Plemons, Alison Brie and Matthew Rhys.

Synopsis:

In the early 70s, the Washington Post discovers an extensive cover-up spanning four Us Presidents. The decision to publish what became known as The Pentagon Papers puts it, especially its publisher and editor, on a collision course with the government.

We’ve seen Washington Post Editor Ben Bradlee before, but played by a gruff Jason Robards in All The President’s Men (1976). There’s no mention in Steven Spielberg’s The Post of either Bob Woodward or Carl Bernstein – at least by name – but by the end of the film we’re in no doubt that one of the many hats worn by the film is that of prequel. To Watergate. And it’s all laced with the delicious irony of

‘The Post’ Fact-Check: Was Katharine Graham’s First Job Really Publisher of the Washington Post?

‘The Post’ Fact-Check: Was Katharine Graham’s First Job Really Publisher of the Washington Post?
The Post” is a wonderful movie. But it takes some liberties with the life story of Washington Post publisher Katharine Graham to play up her hero’s journey from uncertain widow to journalistic icon. In the film, Graham (Meryl Streep) says that she never had a real job until she inherited her job as publisher of the Post when she was 45. This helps the film tell its powerful story of a woman learning to claim her authority, though wisdom and bravery, in a male-dominated world. Early in the film, we see Ben Bradlee (Tom Hanks) tell her in no uncertain...

Lebanon Bans Steven Spielberg's The Post

Lebanon Bans Steven Spielberg's The Post
Steven Spielberg got some unexpected news in regards to his latest Oscar hopeful. His new movie The Post, starring Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep, has just been banned in Lebanon, a source close to the project has revealed. The movie was presented to the Lebanese censorship board, which banned it, citing a "boycott Israel" list that includes Spielberg due to his Oscar-winning Holocaust movie Schindler's List, because the 1993 movie shot scenes in Jerusalem. However, the decision may be overturned when it reaches Lebanon's Minister of Interior and Municipalities, who will have the final say in the matter.

Wonder Woman was also banned in Lebanon over the summer due to star Gal Gadot being a former member of the Israeli Army, which is required of all Israeli citizens. Lebanon and Israel are currently at war with each other, leading to all kinds of artistic controversy of musicians performing concerts in Israel

‘The Post’ Review: Dir. Steven Spielberg (2017)

The Post Review: Spielberg, Hanks and Streep finally collaborate to tell this rather timely historic story.

The Post Review by Orestes Adam.

The Post Review

Who would have thought that it would take this long for these three titans to collide? Steven Spielberg directs Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep in this riveting period drama on the Washington Post’s battle with the U.S. government in publishing the Pentagon Papers: documents containing highly classified information on how the American government has systematically lied to its people for decades about their escalating involvement in Vietnam. The Post is a political drama that, much to the filmmakers’ knowledge, could easily take place today with hardly any adjustments save for the names of the President and the war. In spite of its patriotic and uplifting undertones, the film sheds light on just how little the relationship between the United States government and its people

Box Office Roundup: ‘Jumanji’ Regains Top Spot

Despite the expansion of Steven Spielberg’s The Post, and the release of three new features, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was able to regain the top spot at the box office. The Kevin Hart/Dwayne Johnson vehicle has been an absolute smash hit both domestically and internationally adding another estimated $27 million domestically during this Mlk weekend. Jumanji has now earned $283 million in the staes alone, with a worldwide cume of around $667 million.

Expanding to 2,800 theaters, Speilberg’s The Post finished second at the domestic box office earning an estimated $18 million. The Post is lead by an all-star cast which includes Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks, and Sarah Paulson among others. While not the box office results the filmmakers were expecting, The Post was able to hold off all three new wide releases.

Of the three new releases, The Commuter, Paddington 2 ($10.6 million), and Proud Mary ($10 million), only the Liam Neeson

‘Jumanji’ Sequel and ‘The Greatest Showman’ Boost 2018 Box Office

“Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” (Sony) easily bested all comers on its fourth weekend, and sustained the 2018 box office upswing. The shockingly successful reboot is just $50 million away from landing in the top-five grossers of 2017. A $350-million total won’t come near to challenging the $600 million-plus final tally for “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” which is 2017’s top performer both domestic and globally, with a worldwide total of over $1.3 billion.

A weekend result that puts the Dwayne Johnson family fantasy $15-million ahead of the latest “Star Wars” juggernaut suggests the days may be waning for “Star Wars” as the dominant franchise far above all the rest. For the first time, its fifth weekend fell below the comparable “Rogue One” last year.

And yet overall grosses are up — if not at the level of last week’s 20 per cent increase. This weekend’s overall results are close to a carbon copy
