Afraid I dont know complete history of President Lincoln but based on the movie made me feel as if he might have been the greatest president of all time. A man so far ahead of his time. Ending war and slavery would not compromise on either as both were intertwined. Spoke very personally to me and for a movie steeped so far in the past I felt it was speaking to us in the present. Again, the great nation we can strive to be...

Well he's on Mt. Rushmore ... he's one of the top five.

My personal favorite, a modern revolutionary (and last REAL president) was JFK.

He would've been an all-time great before he got snuffed out by the CIA / FBI / Bush - Military Industrial Complex

Caught it the other day, Daniel Day Lewis was Daniel Day Lewis, but Tommy Lee Jones brought the ruckus too. That scene between the two in the basement was like a master class.

The Dark Knight Rises was more like a 6.5, just too many pacing issues and silly plot choices. Compared to TDK, it was a huge letdown, but I guess anything following the Joker would be. Props to Tom Hardy though, great actor, he did his best with his eyes and body language.

Moneyball

Enjoyed it a lot and i'm not a baseball fan, but its hard to go wrong with Brad Pitt. It was interesting seeing such a tactic turn out to be effective; there's a science to everything.

8/10

MI3 is one that I do recommend for what it is. Its fun and delivers on its premise effectively. I loved the rendition of young K and for the type of story it is, the ending left me content and satisfied.

The 3 movies I saw in these couple of weeks:
Lawless 7.8
Seven Psychopaths 8
Cloud Atlas 7.8

shaking camera will likely annoy you and may the YA elements in it. But as a whole its no worse than the 3 movies you just mentioned seeing.

6.5/10. Not bad at all, but you're not missing anything if you haven't seen it. Its like if Disney did their own version of Battle Royal (the asian flick).

The Hobbit 8/10

Peter Jackson does something I've never seen before: he actually puts more in the film than was in the book. And it works. Visually stunning (I saw it in 28fps 3-D) and compelling, especially the scene with Gollum. The only negative for me is the nearly 3 hour run time. If he could've shaved about 20 minutes it would've been 9/10.
