What do John Wilkes Booth and the new Twilight movie have in common?
They both killed LINCOLN at the theatre!!!!
I agree. Needs more explosions and werewolves.
I also totally called the amendment passing 15 minutes in.
i really enjoyed it. how were those crabs prepared? im guessing no Old Bay. :(
I read somewhere that DDL insisted that he and Sally Field text one another in character for 7 months before and during filming. Would love to see those transcripts.
If they texted in character, I assume it's just a bunch of gibberish from mashing buttons on whatever space alien device they used.
Well, I mean, that’s what it is. I doodoo and then listen to Katy Perry.
I think the idea was the speech and writing of the period, plus speaking as if it was their actual marriage during that era. Like for instance, they bickered as Abe and Mary would have while using period language and their understanding of the relationship.

I think I don't want to see this movie because I'd end up hating myself for not liking it. Intense ADD is apparently not a recipe for this one
I finally saw this last night. I heard a lot of criticism about this being too long, talky and (similar to Spielberg's Amistad) more like a civics lesson than a compelling narrative.
I have to say I thought this was Spielberg's best effort since Catch Me If You Can. I really really dislike that sappy, overlong War Horse...and that last Indiana Jones movie...ugh.
Obviously DDL is great at the center of this...but its success lies heavily on the immersive nature of the production design and a formidable supporting cast. The 2 1/2 hours moved very quickly for me as I was emotionally invested.....even knowing the outcome! That's a true testament to Spielberg's storytelling skills.
I give it a solid A.
I thought it was a solid A but I would of add some subtitles or something that explaned who some of the characters were - especially in the Congress. I knew who about 80% of them were but anyone I have watched it with was very confused by many of the minor characters.
I can definitely relate, but it did not impair my enjoyment. I understood the person's role even if I did not know specifically who they were historically/politically.
It could easily have been expanded into a 3-part miniseries on HBO and that would have help with those details.
