    The Post

    ★★½

    50/100

    "Do you know what my husband said about the news? He called it the first rough draft of history."

    I'm a sucker for journalism dramas. Although at times the plot can feel a bit rushed, The Post is a very well acted that, for the most part, does a solid job at capturing the high-stakes nature that was the Pentagon Papers. But there are better movies in that subgenre. Steven Spielberg is one of the greatest filmmakers of all…

    ★★½

    50/100

    "You drown not by falling into the river, but by staying submerged in it."

    ★★★★

    77/100

    "This is me! This is how I win."

    I don't think I breathed through the entire movie. So stressful. You see a dude's extremely hectic life plagued with issues. He balances them poorly, but the fact he balances them at all is amazing. The Safdies Brothers are the real deal, they directed the shit out of this. Can't wait to see what they'll do next. I always liked Adam Sandler as a dramatic actor, and his performance in Uncut…
