THE POST (2017) – REVIEW


Somewhat misleading image, which is Not from the film... 2017 DIRECTOR: Steven Spielberg 75/100 The gentle pacing of this look at the release of not only the Pentagon Papers, but the reaffirment of press freedom in the United States under Nixon's dubious leadership, is typical of what we have come to expect from Steven Spielberg… Continue reading THE POST (2017) – REVIEW

JURASSIC PARK ~ 2011 DIGITAL RE-RELEASE


1993 DIRECTOR: Steven Spielberg TOP TEN FILM! May Contain Spoilers! Today, another travesty is taking place as Dino-classic, Jurassic Park (1993), which has been retrofitted in 3D, is being re-released in cinemas.
