Lincoln

Movie:  Lincoln
Like/Don't Like:  Really good

Does it make me less of an American to say that Steven Spielberg isn't my favorite?  I mean, he certainly can do a Big Picture, but sometimes they're a little heavy handed.  Or a lot.  Like, let's put some magic right here and really make them feel.  You know?  Anyway, that's a beef I have.

But there's no denying that this is a great story.  And that Lincoln was awesome.  And that slavery is bad.  And that Daniel Day-Lewis is scary good. I mean, seriously, who is this guy? I thought it was kind of long, but he was just so convincing that I went along for his performance alone.  Great stuff.
