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!

Pick Your Poison

Something that my mom used to say when we kids were clamoring for something that she was offering, like a snack tray or a box of chocolates, was that we would each get a turn. When it was our turn, she put the tray or box in front of each of us and told us, one by one, to “pick your poison.”

I had to look up that phrase to see if it was from a movie or song lyrics, but from what I can tell it came about during Prohibition and meant which alcoholic drink would you prefer?

New movie

Tomorrow a new movie comes out on DVD that I really want to get and the is the new Clint Eastwood movie Grand Torino. I wanted to go see this movie on the big screen but we never made and now it is coming out on DVD. I love Clint Eastwood and his movies have always been one of the first ones that I see when I have a choice on which movie to go I will chose one of his before many other actors. I can not it to see this movie and it will be one I add to my DVD collection as soon as it comes out.
