Alex Isaacs quote iconI don’t think I have to tell anyone to go watch a movie directed by Steven Spielberg, starring Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep but I will say that this is a movie more suited for people who like having something to think about than people who perhaps like watching cars explode as a muscly man slowly walks away.
