Full Price for me. I didn't need to see the battles. The way the politicians and generals described the battles was good enough. Your imagination is more terrifying than seeing someone else's take on it (though I would really love to see a Steven Spielberg Civil War Movie). Same goes for not showing slaves (though you saw his son viewing the pictures of the beaten slaves, so you knew what was at stake anyway). But I will agree with Leon on one thing, I don't think that ending was needed. They should have shed 5 minutes off. Would have made a better impact in my opinion. But anyway, full price!
@OdO Obviously Lincoln
Well, I should hope it's his best film in over a decade because he milked every top actor he could buy, used a comfortable budget for the sets, and chose one of the most sympathetic plights in human history, that being the end of slavery...I mean, you can't give him any more of a shot to get get Oscar attention. I think Stevie learned his lesson, upgrading from a horse to Daniel Day Lewis.
Lincoln is the best work Spielberg has done in at least a decade. I do get the feeling that Im in 1865 thanks to the set designs and performances. About the arguements for more battle scenes, this film isnt really about the battles they fought but the abolition of slavery. Now I would want to see at least one scene where it shows why lincoln was opposed to slavery (even Vampire Hunter showed why.) But overall, spielbergism aside, its a full on price for me.
@ASIM Yes, Leon has disagreed with the rest of the crew alot lately. But you know what, he backs up his opinion so well, that I don't think he's jaded. He just see things from a different perspective, which I appreciate greatly.
