Everybody Loves Abraham Lincoln

This isn’t particularly geeky, but I think Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln is the movie I’m most looking forward to at the end of the year.

There’s just something so prestigious about Daniel Day-Lewis and Steven Spielberg making an Abraham Lincoln biopic. Is there any American historical figure more beloved or more awe-inspiring than Abraham Lincoln? Even though there was that time he suspended Habeas Corpus. Still, he’s much much cooler than George Washington, by far.

And William McKinley can suck it!

About Sean Ian Mills

Hello, this is Sean, the Henchman-4-Hire! By day I am a mild-mannered newspaper reporter in Central New York, and by the rest of the day I'm a pretty big geek when it comes to video games, comic books, movies, cartoons and more.

  1. Yeah Lincoln looks like it’ll be cool. But my fall movie is going to be Les Miserables. Wolverine is Jean ValJean, Catwoman is Fantine, and uh……John Nash, the father of modern economic theory (sorry, A Beautiful Mind is actually the only Russel Crowe movie I like) is Javert.

    So yeah, that’s gonna be something to see.

    Also Cloud Atlas.

    • Oh right, Les Miserables is coming out. That should indeed be awesome. And you didn’t like Gladiator? Or…that episode of South Park where Russel Crowe punches people? I’m sure I liked him in something else…

      I’ve heard of Cloud Atlas but know next to nothing about it.

      Oh wait! Argo is coming out, as is Hyde Park on the Hudson. The latter looked amazing.

      • Ok yes, if we count Russel Crowe’s “Fightin’ Round the World” then that is truly my favorite Russel Crowe vehicle. Poor Tugger.

        But actually this fall looks insane for movies. It is likely that I’ll be at the cinema every other weekend. Because there is also Looper, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Django Unchained, and a bunch of other crap I wanna see just because.

        As usual, once I see them all I’ll let you know which ones are any good. Hey, maybe I’ll even do a review for your blog.

      • I’ve stopped holding my breath that you’ll write something new for my blog.
