Totally Recommend Lincoln – The Movie

by on Friday, January 18th, 2013

If you are up for going to the theater to see a movie on the big screen, I totally recommend Lincoln – the Movie. This is one of the best two and a half hours you can spend in a theater. The cast and crew are up for all kinds of nominations and they are all worthy of the awards they will surely receive.

Daniel Day Lewis looks, walks and talks like Abraham Lincoln. You might know deep down that he is Daniel Day Lewis – from Last of the Mohicans and other great movies – but when you first see Lincoln in this movie you believe 100% that you are watching Lincoln.

Sally Fields is great as his wife, Mary Todd Lincoln. Tommy Lee Jones, David Strathaim, James Spader, Hal Holbrook – an all star cast that nailed their roles and made this movie a classic for generations to come.

Its not about the assassination – its about politics and ending the civil War. Great movie – I can’t say that enough!

NFL Playoffs – or Not?

by on Sunday, January 13th, 2013

Today is the day that key football teams will find out if they are contenders in this year’s Super Bowl or not. My team folded a long time ago – they started out losing and never really caught up to get a wild card chance of playing. So most of us are watching to see if the teams we hate will lose, and which of the teams that are left on the field might be worthy of us cheering for them.

My own picks for who will play in the Super Bowl are the San Francisco 49’ers and the Baltimore Ravens. I’m not saying that I like either of those teams, I’m just picking them out of the rest of the teams still in the running as being able to pull off enough wins to make it to the Bowl. In a way, I hope my picks don’t prove true, because I don’t like either team. In fact, I despise the Ravens and think they are nothing but a bunch of overpaid thugs.

But, we’ll see by morning if my picks are still on track.
