Lincoln (2012)
« on: January 09, 2014, 04:41:00 pm »

I love history and I love anything by Steven Spielberg. And as great as Lincoln is, this is another 'one and done' film of his. That's not a bad thing. It's just that Lincoln, along with Schindler's List is something that I probably will never watch again, which is actually the case with Schindler's List, a movie that I have not re-watched since seeing it on opening day in the theater. As for Lincoln, it looks great and Spielberg should be proud of what he has done with this film. But its watching Daniel Day-Lewis transform into the title character that leaves me speechless. His portrayal of Lincoln gives me goosebumps. An amazing performance from top to bottom and the same can be said for Sally Field.

As I alluded to earlier, this movie isn't for everyone. It's more of a 'talking head' flick than anything else. If you are expecting (which I was) something along the lines of Glory, you may feel somewhat disappointed. It may be set in the middle of the Civil War, but this isn't the movie to really highlight that. It's about winning Votes and political maneuvering that comes with being the President of the United States. There is still plenty of things to marvel at with the movie and for that I can definitely recommend this as a Rent.

Anyone else pick up on President Logan sitting across the table from President Lincoln;)  I thought that was a good one, intentional or not.
