We went and saw Lincoln last night, and thought it was good too. It's certainly not a Ken Burns documentary for those looking for something more along those lines rather than a Hollywood film. I suppose you could critique it for being somewhat one dimensional in that it's primary focus is the 13th amendment. Then again could you really go deeper in 2.5 hours? I haven't read anything critiquing it for being factually far afield. Either way, it was very good and we enjoyed it.

As much as I can't wait to see this movie, I am going to wait for the DVD. I can't stand going to movie theaters anymore around here. Too many inconsiderate people using cell phones the whole time, and although probably not an issue with a movie like this, teenagers who act up the whole time making me want to smack them. I definitely am excited to see it though, Lincoln is a fascinating president and overall historical figure.

I had planed to see this during the week when I travel on business. But my 11 year old son came home from school on Wednesday and asked if I would take him to see it. I wish I had a dozen of him. Thanks for the reviews, and I'll see 007 when I travel this week.

I can't remember the last time there have been three movies in release, currently in theaters, that I've seen! We saw Argo a few weeks ago, Skyfall last week, and Lincoln last night. Usually, we sit around like the old people we are and watch Jeopardy. Ok, we don't really watch Jeopardy. But we do occasionally watch NCIS.

Does it just ignore his days as a vampire hunter like history books?

I pretty much get to see Disney at the theater.
The rest is Netflix or DVD for me to.

40 years ago when I was my daughters age I was never that spoiled

Just got back from it. I liked Casino Royale much better (and that is IMO the best bond ever). This one was good though.

I think the bigger problem is not that Hollywood rewrites history, but that we now require Hollywood to teach us our history.

Lincoln was "ok" from a historical standpoint. Just enjoy it for what it is... an unoffensive Spielberg film. However, the new Bond film's plot is so inane, it is insulting.

There is some truth to that.
I like history myself. I can even enjoy a movie that is full of inaccuracy, as long as it's not supposed to be perceived as accurate.

I really don't want to watch a movie like this with my 7 year old if it's going to "teach" her wrong facts.

At 7 she knows more actual history than probably a lot of high school kids.
For example, after we went to see the king tut exhibit I was downloading pictures a week later and she was telling me the story behind many of the people who's statues I had pictures of.
