Went to see "Lincoln" yesterday... Can't Post

It was was fantastic, Daniel Day-Lewis has outdone himself, but I noticed one thing in particular.

Lee Pace played a pro-slavery congressman from Ohio and had a semi-promenent role in the film. I had no idea that the Elven-King was even in the movie until I went to see it!

Anyone else seen Lincoln? Plan to see it?

Was I the only one who didn't know about this?

The Grey Pilgrim, they once called me. Three hundred lives of men I walked this earth, and now I have no time...

Wanted to see it this weekend (Nov 17-18)... [In reply to] Can't Post

but have to go to TWO different Thanksgiving meals this weekend. Have to wait 'til next weekend because it would impractical to go on a school night. The kids need us at home.

You'll see that in every contract. It's called a "sanity clause".
Ha-ha. You can't fool me. There ain't no Sanity Claus.

I will see this. [In reply to] Can't Post

Daniel Day Lewis is one of the few actors that I try to see all of their movies, preferably at the theater. I had no idea Lee Pace was in it too. I only know him as the pie man.

Yes, I saw Lincoln on Thursday night. [In reply to] Can't Post

Excellent film and the supporting cast was phenomenal. I'll likely expound more in deej's weekly movie thread, but a minor correction is in order here: Lee Pace portrayed Fernando Wood, who was a Copperhead Democrat and a representative of New York, not Ohio. Pace turned in a fiery performance as Thaddeus Stevens' (Tommy Lee Jones) political nemesis.
