Wife is out for afternoon. Should I go see "Lincoln?"

Posted on 11/18/2012 9:04:29 AM PST by E. Pluribus Unum

I hate to give Steven Spielberg any money, and I hate the fact that Spielberg spouts the lie that the Republican party of Lincoln's day is now the Democrat party.

I am sure that it is another Lefty propaganda piece.

But it looks like a well-made movie.

Should I stay or should I go?

I’d go see Skyfall before I’d see Lincoln.

Go if you wish. I understand Daniel Day Lewis is awesome. Even the voice he used for Lincoln was well researched. But be prepared for a liberal movie probably twisting historical facts.

My son, whose movie reviews are generally limited to expressions like, “it was okay.” or “ Meh,” actually raved about it. He is a solid, Christian conservative who doesn’t praise films lightly. He said it was not a Lincoln-worship piece—raising the issue of suspending habeus corpus, forcing votes, corrupting his political enemies to achieve a majority, etc. Apparently it paints him as a pragmatist over everything else, still slightly left in its conclusions, but a good flick overall.

I plan on seeing it.

Don’t do it...it’s just more lefty propaganda. My local newspaper reviewed it today (I have not seen it, nor will I), the local reviewer says it’s about Lincoln in the last days of the Civil War; the plot apparently revolves around whether Lincoln can keep the war going long enough so the South will be in the union when the 13th amendment is added, otherwise (I guess) slavery might continue.

Given that Lincoln believed that the South could not secede, the story must be entirely made up. If that’s the plot line the whole movie has to be nonsense.

personally , I hate Lincoln.

That tyrannical basterd crapped on the constitution and needlessly caused the death and suffering of hundreds of thousands of good americans. He could have done the right thing and took the federal governments boot off the neck of the south, instead he chose war

the south got screwed over and Stincoln Lincoln was a dirty rat basterd.

Obama loves Lincoln

That mouthless freak Ebert gave it 2 thumbs and another liberal ass-wipe material called rolling stone gave it good reviews too which means...

I won’t watch it. My neighbor told me it was just a cliched look at Lincoln. Libtard Spielberg supposedly just focused on him freeing slaves. Pretty much a liberal white guilt movie but it’s your time.

I try to go to the theater at least once every five years for real “movie theater popcorn”. I went to see “Trouble With The Curve” a couple months ago. I’m good for another five years. If it isn’t on TV or DVD, I usually wait. JMO.

Am I imagining this? Didn’t a few years back a lot claimed the civil war wasn’t fought to free the slaves but to, I don’t know, some other thing.

Now, all of a sudden they are back on track with it was to free the slaves?

I go to movies more often now that my knees have gone away. I'd rather be out filling my doe tag (got my buck last weekend), but my knees are still punishing me for dragging that thing out of the woods.

When will we conservative bite the damn bullet and give up on shoveling our dwindling dollars into the pockewts of those who will turn around and give to those who are destroying our way of life.

Read a good book on Lincoln, take a walk, do anything, but DO NOT GIVE THEM YOUR MONEY! No matter how good their movie is, it is not worth suffering the end result.

How can we truly shut them down if we continue to watch their movies, send our children to their schools, or buy the products made by leftists companies that support the left?

Hasn't this last election convinced any one that it is time to fight, instead of finally putting your foot down and telling them enough is enough???????

I haven't been to a first run movie in ages. Costs too much for the film and the refreshments. Most movies made nowadays are trash. And then you have the jerks sitting around you talking non-stop and spilling popcorn and beverages on you. No thanks.

If you have cable or satellite, watch Turner Classic Movies, Retro or some other old movie channel. Or better yet, if the weather is good where you live, go outside. Take a walk, rake leaves, sit in the sun. You'll feel a lot better than wasting your time and money in a dark theater watching garbage.

Why would you buy overpriced "refreshments?"

A movie is only a couple of hours long. Do you require hourly feedings?

The mouthless freak LOL! You know who gave him that? Vincent Gallo. Ebert totally trashed Gallos movie "The Brown bunny" and Gallo said he wished mouth cancer on Ebert, and incredibly a few months later he got it.

GALLO IS THE DEVIL!!

As Yogi Berra might have said, movies rely too much on visual information. LOL. But you’re right, books are generally a superior medium for imparting information and reading is a better use of your personal time.

I get dehydrated easily. Last time I was at a theater, bottled water was $6. Some of our theaters will search you. They don’t allow you to bring in your own refreshments.

you really want well-made to trump lefty propaganda piece? you want to pay good money to put more of that garbage into your own head?

Lincoln was written by Tony Kushner, thr same guy who gave us the anti-Israel Spielberg movie Munich. He also adapted his Lincoln screenplay from a book by Doris Kearns Goodwin.

I'm other words, no. Go see Bond instead.

If it were any other FReeper, I’d say forget about it. They are in the process of rewriting American History...just wait until the Washington movie comes out and portrays him as a womanizer and cheat!

BUT, I trust your judgement and there may be strong need for educated minds, of the historical and literary nature, to defend the myths and lies the progressive rewrites concoct.
