I love Daniel Day Lewis, I usually enjoy a Spielberg flick, and history is my favorite subject. But I did not like this movie at all. I think other actors (Phoenix) for example deserve the oscar over him. It was a good interpretation of Lincoln but it wasn't anything amazing. I thought at least. And everyone else I've talked to about it has thought the same and that it was incredibly slow and boring. And I'm not the type who needs action packed movies, quite the opposite, but I just had a real hard time sitting through this.
