"Lincoln" - new Spielberg film

This looks to be a must see for any moviegoer this fall. Slated for a November 16th release date. The trailer was just released today...

I just might go see it. There hasn't been a movie in theaters all year that I've even just a little bit wanted to see.

I hear ya there...I'm excited for this too.

One thing that stood out to me in the preview was Daniel Day-Lewis voice. We have been sort of conditioned to believe Lincoln talked a certain way based on other films, documentaries and reenactors. Deep voice, proper and cathartic. But Lewis here presents the President with a much more simple and folksy accent and delivery.

Considering how much research was probably done by Spielberg and company, along with the fact that Lewis is a terrific actor who can seemingly nail any historical role dead on, I'd have to believe we have been duped for years on the true voice of Lincoln.

Fantastic film. Saw it last night...highly recommended to everyone. Don't expect much action. Deliberately paced but tense and dramatic, with just enough sensitivity and lightheartedness for wide appeal in my view. The script is tremendous and while I wouldn't say it was "perfect" movie the acting is so extraordinary it carries you through what otherwise could be a small handful lulls. 9.5 out of 10!
