JUST got home from seeing "LINCOLN". Trust me. SEE IT. Here is why: [View all]

Certainly no event and era in our history is more burned into our national conscience than the Civil War, the great tragedy and triumph of our nation. And Lincoln, as imperfect and human as he was, was nonetheless great in so many ways and indeed born for his times. This dramatization was very risky. It had to be done right, or calamity. Spielberg and his crew got it right. Excellent cast. Excellent script. Excellent cinematography. And Daniel Day Lewis's Oscar-worthy performance captures the Lincoln that was indeed the right man at the right time. Just BRILLIANT. Sally Field and Tommy Lee Jones were just great too. They all were. This film will go down as one of the great ones. Everyone walking out of the theater was saying "Excellent. Just excellent." Trust me. SEE IT and allow yourself to be moved by great art.
