For a country founded on religious freedom, it did not take us long to find our national martyred saint. Imitated by children in construction paper top hats and felt beards, revered by the millions of visitors to his temple-like memorial, cited by any President or leader who wants to skim a bit of gravity for their words-- Abraham Lincoln became America's Christ

Did you ever walk out of a movie and wonder what happened to the handful of scenes that you know you saw in a trailer? Sometimes you end up seeing a different angle for a scene.

It Took Steven Spielberg's Lincoln To Outlaw Slavery In Mississippi It Took Steven Spielberg's Lincoln To Outlaw Slavery In Mississippi
Every now and then you hear about crazy state laws that are somehow still on the books, like the fact that in Connecticut a pickle legally must bounce before being considered a pickle, or that in South Carolina a person must be 18 years old to play pinball. But did you know that in one state, slavery was still technically not illegal-- and it took a movie, of all things, to change that?

Weekend Box Office: Zero Dark Thirty Takes Down Number One Spot Weekend Box Office: Zero Dark Thirty Takes Down Number One Spot
After three weeks building up buzz in small release, Zero Dark Thirty expanded to almost 3,000 locations this weekend, taking the number one spot with $24 million. Not bad for a heavy political drama arriving after the holidays, but perhaps not good enough for a movie made on a $40 million budget. If awards season is kind to the project, it may see enough continued sales to be as successful at the box office.

Most reactions from Oscar winners are the same outrageously dull boilerplate, thanking the Academy and their co-stars, expressing incredible gratitude that they've been recognized at all. The oldest line in the book is to say that you were still asleep when you were surprised by a call from your agent, but luckily most of the nominees seem to have retired that line this year

The following ten movies are the ones that have really stuck with me. They’re the ones that have gotten better with months or weeks of age and have separated themselves from the pack. Some of them will definitely be nominated for Best Picture at the Academy Awards and others will not even be considered. Some of them you’ll probably agree with, and some of them will probably make you laugh and doubt my credibility.

One of the many advantages of being President of the United States of America is that you can request special screenings of movies that interest you, since a POTUS trip to a movie theater is literally a national security concern. Senators, however, are not often so lucky as to get private screenings of big releases. But yesterday the U.S. Senate took an official recess from their embittered battles over tax reform to see Steven Spielberg's Lincoln...

Most people, when you tell them they're going to have to pay twice as much to get what they want, are likely to yell at you. Twilight fans? They just get more excited and happily hand over the cash. Stretching the final chapter in the sparkly vampire saga into two chapters gave Summit the irresistible chance to take the franchise cash cow for an extra spin. And why not? It worked out pretty well for Harry Potter.

Rather than simply telling the life story of our 16th President, Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln instead tells the story of how the leader worked to make sure that slavery would be banned in post-Civil War America. But in order to get the votes he needed from those on the fence about the issue, he had three men work to try and convince the opposing party that the 13th Amendment needed to be put into law.

Some attribute this weekend's record breaking opening of Skyfall to timing, as the movie breaks the doldrums of a very slow, dull October. Others suggest it's all the high end marketing and critical buzz around the latest Bond flick. Personally I'm giving credit to Adele for her near-chart-topping Bond song. Whatever explanations might be true, they had audiences packing out theaters this weekend to see what is being hailed as the best Bond movie ever.

Daniel Day-Lewis is currently earning raves for his performance as a conflicted Abraham Lincoln in Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln, an Oscar contender that opens in limited release today (November 9th) before expanding nationwide on November 16th. But while DDL’s performance is noteworthy, the fact that he’s playing our nation’s 16th president on screen isn’t as unique as one might have thought.
