‘The Post’: Steven Spielberg, Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks talk new movie - FULL PANEL



Fred Weatherly - 2018-01-18
Due to the officious nature of Meryl Streep I will never watch any films that include her as a character.

Marilyn Taylor - 2018-01-18
I just saw this movie, and I plan on buying it when it's available. For the first time in my 64 years, I will be going to the theater again and paying to see it. Incredible! Thank you to all the participants. Incredible! I felt like a kid; I reacted like I was a teenager watching it. It truly is a great movie.

What a shit show, excuse me, shit hole.

Logan Bradley - 2018-01-18
This movie is going to be just more of the same old Jewish Hollywood BS. Hanks and Streep are the Jews' little poodles.

Wonderful, insightful conversation. Thank you for this.

Sherri Sturm - 2018-01-17
Meryl discuss "research" and the role of women in news... Brought back memories of an isolated path as an actuary to be an "analyst". I remember my "great potential" of being a researcher, putting summaries together and organizing information.... Women ARE relegated in business - it is NOW. It is relevant, NOW. I will never forget the person who told me their role would be to put their name on it.. Great interview.

michael gauci - 2018-01-17
everyone one now knows Vietnam was a lie from start to finish that is the american Holocaust

Adelina Hernandez - 2018-01-17
Thank you Steven Spielberg for bringing this story to the big screen. Thank you to the Washington Post and all other newspapers for continuing to report and investigate.

Daniel Toma - 2018-01-17
I won't say she's the best interviewer I've seen, but she's better than about 95% of the ppl who interview celebrities today. At least this interviewer asks several relevant, mindful, thoughtful questions, while many people who've been given a microphone are simply horrible at the job

Harvey V Voynov - 2018-01-16
Yes Meryl knew about Harvey ,but how do you go about it..its like it's your family is into something and part of you has sunked into something.Your other part is still above ,but its like you are paralised.

LUCY CARRILLO - 2018-01-16
What is the name of Bob Odenkirk’s character in this movie??

Anthony Nycholas - 2018-01-15
saw "The Post" just yesterday and bloody hell, it was a great movie. btw, you could've transitioned the end into "All the President's Men"!

(spoiler alert a future movie : "Chappaqiddick", is based off of another Nixon-era scandal which was one of the defenses against Nixon and his Watergate cover-up)

bj neal - 2018-01-15
Why does the movie suggest that Jack Kennedy wanted the Vietnam war? He was actually trying to get us out. Probably one of the reasons his term was shortened?

Airlie Maria Heung - 2018-01-15
Thank you for this: journalism with integrity.

Pastor Marty - 2018-01-15
Funny they never tell a story of now that hurt their own... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sqSrlxJH9Hc

Danusha Goska - 2018-01-15
"The Post" is an excellent movie. Go see it.

Eric DuVall - 2018-01-14
Pretty good panel and the film was excellent. The comments by the film critic taking the opportunity to slam Trump are so misguided. By this time, the middle of December, everyone knew that the Trump-Russia story was a false narrative, and that in fact it was the Clinton Campaign colluding with the Russians, and that the TRUTH was still being COVERED UP. That irony, in light of the subject matter of the film, is the elephant in this room.

Dream Time - 2018-01-14
A MIRROR INSIDE OF A MIRROR. THIS MEANS BABY BOOMERS TALKING ABOUT THEIR MOVIE ABOUT THEMSELVES AS BABY BOOMERS OF WHAT THEIR PARENTS DID THAT EFFECT THEIR CREATIVITY ABOUT BABY BOOMERS. We are left with the mess but it cannot be cleaned up. The next two generations "genx" and the "pluto in libra said fuck it because the baby boomers took and sucked up all. Now we have the M.E.s (millennial entitleists) and they will resume and take over the baby boomers position, but it will be the other side of the coin (destructive and destroying), not the yang (creative).

Kirsten I. Russell - 2018-01-14
I saw THE POST yesterday and did find it FUN. It never flagged, kept me interested all the way through, and made me laugh in the end, when I could see the movie as a prequel to ALL THE PRESIDENT'S MEN.

GrinsInc - 2018-01-14
And no Warren Buffett?!?!?!?!?!

Obama Mama - 2018-01-13
Our founding fathers carefully, painstakingly, and brilliantly constructed our constitution, which has allowed us to become and continue to become the greatest nation on earth. Despite our shameless past behaviors, slavery,.. repression,.. segregation, oppression..invasion, controlling and killing, etc.. etc.. Mostly perpetrated by white men (including our founding fathers, I know,.. ). But our constitution was profoundly and insightfully drafted,... in spite of the obvious hypocrisy at the time. It is our constitution that has allowed us to evolve.  All men are created equal. Freedom of religion. Freedom of the press. etc etc etc  
Can’t fuck with our constitution,...   sorry Putin... Sorry Trump...  you have the freedom to go eat a big pile shit.

c. lince - 2018-01-13
tabloids say that steven spielberg[allegedly] has molested many young teens who have worked in his movies

Mark Jones - 2018-01-13
It's incredible to see 5 prominent communists on the same stage at once!

Paul Borst - 2018-01-13
This movie is going to bomb. Insane Hollywood disconnect is sick. I refuse to watch anything with Streep.

Emma - 2018-01-12
There is media arising that completely sidesteps what we have always accepted as 'the media'.

Jan Valach - 2018-01-12

Terrance Spragg - 2018-01-12
These guys are in-your-face and out-of-place on political opinions, and all I want from them is entertainment in movies. They should stick to what they know best; and that is acting in movies. I will never ever watch another movie in which Hanks or Streep appear or which Spielberg directs; even though I have grown to love them. Now, when I see them, the movie is ruined because I am distracted by remembering them being so politically opinionated rather than being movie-fan pleasing.

Duncan M - 2018-01-11
Conversations like this illustrate that the speakers have never made it out of high school mentally and have lost any sense of 'nuance' in discussions of relationships between the genders. Women have never been oppressed; in point of fact, they have always had the buttered side of the biscuit.

Canadian97467 - 2018-01-11
1:02:02 YES! You want to get out of your house once in a while. Are we really heading towards a world where we don't even go out anymore? We just came back home from work and spend our free time in another little cell.

And some movies just aren't the same on the small screen. You have to watch them at the theater, or you lose the details of magnificent mountains , and the sound isn't the same either.

Spielberg, Hanks, Streep:
"A trifecta do not make a perfecta."
I won't see this movie that's for sure, The Washington Post is not real journalism. There is no real truthful journalism today when little commentaries are part of the story. The Trump reference from this little panel is proof how they direct the listeners attention to a hot bed of differences today. Talk about the movie.
These two actors should have kept their personal views personal because it dirties up their performances for me. To hell with what you think the rest of us need to know. You've been exposed.

AR Frances - 2018-01-10
Did anybody mention Julian Assange, why he is under house arrest for publishing
same as the Post did?

BOYCOTT all Trump haters

Bella babe - 2018-01-10
Love to be be a buddy of Tom Hanks and go for an aul pint with him, with Meyrle Streep just happening to drop in for an easy chat and a game of darts.

Arth Denton - 2018-01-09
LOL, Merryl Streep... SHE KNEW!!!

Laura Giammattei - 2018-01-09
I found hope by watching this. I pray that, "history repeats itself" is true. I can't wait to see this movie, (side note I totally love Bradley Whitford, I was a big big west wing fan) and I want to say thank you to whoever produced this. It has given this 52 year old woman some hope which unfortunately I have very little of. After what I have lived thru during the last 30 years of my life. Arguable what was suppose to be the best years of my life. I wake up worried every day about my 17 year old daughters future and by the way she is a total alien to me since the changes that have taken place in the past 30 years make her and I so so very different. For example in my late 20's I was the marketing director of a coliseum that had sporting and live events, I paid 20K for a full page ad in the Sunday Arts section of the paper to advertise the power rangers.....I had no computer.... and I made advertisements on the copy machine....She heard her first busy signal at age 10....has never read a newspaper and she barely watchs tv BUT someone who watch this will be happy to know that she does go to the movies!! So maybe, just maybe all is not lost.

"Women speak (the language of) men, but men don't speak (the language of) women. They don't dream in it." -Meryl Streep ...❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️!

Mani Aulakh - 2018-01-09
Watching Spielberg interviews and hearing little tidbits of directing wisdom is my fav part. ^_^ Thank you Washington Post, you asked great questions! You're helping make better artists...

Carol 70-year-old English populist - 2018-01-09
When you put down all the everyday white men in the world then cuddle, love, and put on a pedestal the sexual deviant "gods" of Hollywood, whilst turning your head when young actors, even children are raped and abused. FOR DECADES!
You are nothing, your black dresses say nothing except you can be bought.
You people are the pits of those who "see" and say nothing because it may affect your bottom line!

Kari Boersheim - 2018-01-09
love all of these guys

SKMC69 - 2018-01-09

Tanya H. - 2018-01-09
i'm looking to you, Meryll Streep for me to lead the way... and maybe it won't' happen that way bug it 's very needed.....

Johnny Lin - 2018-01-08
meryl streep making dick jokes is the best

Snoop ocalypse - 2018-01-08
Bye Tom ;) it was good.

Andrew Dow - 2018-01-08
Sadly, this is the truth about The Post Movie and why it was rushed out. Yes, it was rushed, as the pro-left media is in shambles with all of the its Fake News being proven to be bias and in some cases, out-right lies. Those lies are of course focused on the Conservative right, specifically Trump. Anyone with a functioning brain should be suspicious about a movie about The Media, that shows us how patriotic and critically high in journalistic integrity the media is......especially when done by Lefties, and more so when CNN and other mega-pro-left-wing media outlets have been caught lying so much recently. The Media isn't supposed to be the story, the story is; hence McLuhan's old saying "The Medium is the Message".

The key take-away is the Democrats in the US had to go back to 1972 before they could find an undisputable case of where the pro-left Media actually had integrity.

JARS - 2018-01-07
I need to see this movie. My kids need to see it when they can. When schools bring back the arts, that's when I'll have faith in them. Instead they let parents walk in and destroy normalcy for all to have a stable upbringing. Does that make sense? When both sides seek and destroy we all loose. Reading books...key. Will lack of good schools take my children's future? For truely great schools I think we need truely great parents. If the parents are messed up?? I think they need the understanding and help first then the kids. So I think the chicken is before the egg, hence stablize familys...stablizes schools... homes... futures. Fix. the court system. Key to helping families.

Watogo - 2018-01-07
I will be posting at home supporting our president and his accomplishments when that film is in theaters. Sorry Hollywood you ruined yourselves, us deplorable‘s don’t forget. God bless our president for making America great.

James Hanscombe - 2018-01-07
When I think of Spielberg, I think of the unbridled power that gets unleashed when you get to do what you were born to do. Most of us do ok. We find a niche, get a pay check that supports us and we do fine. I've watched so many documentaries on the way he works, Jurassic Park, Schindler's list, Saving Private Ryan, building shots, running with a camera, racing actors through different versions of a line. He was generally touched by something special.

Scott McCoy - 2018-01-07
Can't wait to see this movie as it is still in limited release still. At 33 minutes the host tries to interject Trump in the conversation and she is appropriately redirected to what the movie is about. We need an unbiased press that just reports the facts and forgets their opinions. People are intelligent enough to draw their own conclusions based on facts. I applaud the comments about equating the attitudes about gender in the workplace.
