I cannot wait to see this movie tonight. Spielberg, arguably America's best filmmaker over the past quarter-century, teams with Day-Lewis, the world's best actor, to portray the man who became America's greatest president!

The Pioneer Press gave it 2 stars. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. We'll see which paper reports accurately. Is the Trib honest in its reviews or are the just trying to help their spnosors?

Won't waste my money on this revisionist history. Lincoln was the worst president ever. Murdered thousands of Americans and jailed journalists who dared write anything negative about him. Shredded the constitution and set America on its current path.

bearclaw...you are a lonesome voice in the wilderness. Thankfully Lincoln did what was required to save the nation. Period. Scholars and historians alike for the last 147 years rank him right where he belongs...at or near the top.

"Lincoln" is important. Daniel Day-Lewis and the rest of the cast are amazingly good. The other elements add up to a film you should see, and so should your children.

ON THE CONTRARY. Lincoln is well-known by biographers to have had a 'thin and reedy' voice: the deep, booming, prophetic Moses voice is the historical fabrication. The Gettysburg Address failed miserably when Lincoln first delivered it because of problems with his voice: it succeeded in becoming an inspirational political speech only when it was printed and distributed.

No need to rush these extra copies to the theaters on my account, Hollywood has a way of mangling history in it's portrayals. I hear the language is a bit foul and inaccurate. I'm taking a pass on Speilberg's Lincoln.
