At The Movies

Lincoln ★★★★★

Director: Steven Spielberg

Cast: Daniel Day-Lewis, Sally Field, David Strathairn, Joseph Gorden-Levitt, James Spader, Tommy Lee Jones

The movie examines U.S President Abraham Lincoln’s (Daniel Day-Lewis) efforts to pass the 13th Amendment in the last few months of his life in the year 1865 when the American Civil War is coming to an end. Lincoln by any means possible must get enough votes from an unruly Parliament before peace is reached and it is then too late. Lincoln faces his own crisis of conscience, to either end slavery or end the war. Most of the film consists of conversations between the Parliament and Lincolns efforts to stop slavery rather than Lincoln himself. If you are going to see this film expecting an interpretation of the life of President Abraham Lincoln, you will be sorely disappointed.  Fans of Spielberg’s huge-budget, massive-hearted, and action films should note this may be the start of a new chapter for Spielberg; “Lincoln” is a tense drama, unlike anything he has really done before. Daniel Day-Lewis is mesmerizing here; he disappears into his character, is very believable in this role and put in an amazing performance. Lincoln is a worthy film with some great directing, sets and acting.

Movie 43 ★

Cast: Hugh Jackman, Kate Winslet, Richard Gere, Emma Stone, Naomi Watts, Kate Winslet, Halle Berry, Dennis Quaid, Gerald Butler, Kate Bosworth, Seann William Scott, Johnny Knoxville, Justin Long, Anna Faris, Josh Duhamel, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Chloё Grace Moretz, Elizabeth Banks, Kieran Culkin, Kristen Bell, Terrence Howard, Jason Sudeikis, Leslie Bibb, Patrick Warburton, Greg Kinnear, Stephen Merchant

Movie 43 is a collection of twelve short films starring some of the biggest names in Hollywood. Why these huge stars aligned themselves with this compilation of shorts is anybody’s guess. Three kids search the net for a legendary dangerous clip and stumble over a bunch of gross-out skits full of gags that are so grotesque, you will leave the cinema speechless. There are a few shorts in this film which are funny but most are cringe-worthy; the funniest ones were two fake ads for Tampax and children that are enslaved to a life working inside cash machines. This film is ridiculously unbelievable. Despite its star studded cast, of all the ensemble films to come out in the past few years, this is the worst and will undoubtedly be nominated for a few Razzies.
