AppleJack and I went to see Steven Spielberg's movie, Lincoln on Sunday afternoon.  WOW! We are not big movie watchers and are very critical of almost all movies, this movie is  beyond excellent.  

Being a history lover and having visited many Lincoln sites:  his Kentucky birthplace, home in Springfield,  his law office, and the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, this movie did not disappoint.  The movie reaches many human emotions:

  •  Lincoln's humor and story telling
  • Personal sadness
  • Corruptness of Washington
  • Determination to hold the Union together
  • Marriage to Mary Todd
The movie theater was packed--sold out!  I am one of those crazy people who will watch a "good" movie multiple times and I have already made plans with a girl friend to see the movie a second time.  Yes, it is that good!


  1. I'm looking forward to seeing it! I'm glad it got the A plus from you. :)

  2. I can't wait to see it! Good to know you loved it.

  3. Gosh it is years since I went to the cinema, the one here sits about twenty on stackable chairs !! Glad you both enjoyed it.

  4. I plan on going. My granddaughter lives in Springfield so we have visited his homeplace, museum, library,etc, several times and NEVER tire of it.

  5. I really want to see this one! Glad to hear it's as good as I think it will be!
