Really?! I saw Lincoln and was quite amazed and impressed. Initially was not interested in the movie but turned out liking it very much. We all know the Amendment passed and he was killed, but somehow to me there was still an element suspense.On another subject,
I remember a few folks here, on the thread saying they intended
going to see the movie LINCOLN,
if anyone HAS seen it, I'd be interested
to have your opinion of it.
I saw the movie, and must admit,
was disappointed, perhaps that was due to
all the hype which preceded it..
The company I went with thought the same,
that.. it was a good movie without being a great one.
I had seen JANGO UNCHAINED previously and
THAT was a brilliant movie, I never thought I'd see anyone outshine
DANIEL DAY LEWIS, who is known to be one of the greatest
living actors of our time,
but in the two movies I mention,
Leonardo DiCapri towered over him, acting wise.
Funny how it goes!
I thought Sally Field & Daniel Day Lewis did a fab job as did Tommy Lee Jones.
Did you know that Robert, the oldest son who fought in the war was the only child who survived? They had 5 or 6 and all but the one died. After Lincoln was killed Robert put his mother Mary in a mental institution here in Illinois. I think she suffered depression.
