Why does it question my use of the word like?
This is a report based on watching the movie Saving Private Ryan.
Saving Private Ryan is an exceptional example of Spielberg's trademark directing as he makes the audience feel like they are part of the story.
Like is a preposition and as is a conjuction. A prepositional phrase does not include a verb. Since you have a phrase that includes a verb, you should use a conjunction.
He makes the audience feel as if they are part of the story.
You can use like if you get rid of the verb.
He makes the audience feel like a part of the story.
