Re: General Movie Discussion Part II
Do I need to see Quantum of Solace before seeing Skyfall?
nope, only all the James Bonds leading up to Daniel Craig (if you really want to enjoy it).
I saw Lincoln this morning. First off, Daniel Day Lewis is amazing; just get that out there before this mini-review turns into a slobber fest. The movie is long and slow, what I expected; but there isn't any real comedic breaks anywhere or huge scenes (there are these but they don't feel huge) to seem like stuff is getting done. I feel like the book (which it's based on) would be 100% better than the movie (minus DDL).
also, JGL and DDL are in the same movie. Awesome! It might get a nomination for Makeup and best adapted screen play (can't see DDL winning again, sadly), but won't win anything I figure. the movie just kind of...is.
