Those bastards! How dare Hollywood make a well-crafted film about a topic people are interested in, casting the greatest actor his generation? Those vile fiends! I will turn my phaser to snark to demonstrate my displeasure of well-made films for adults coming out of Hollywood. Harumph.
Come on, Baloo.
I didn't mean it like that. I'm sure it will be a good, well-acted movie, and I will definitely go see it despite my disdain for Lincoln. Everyone knows that there are scenes in there written for Oscars. Probably an extreme pro-government an pro-Lincoln stance.
Yall pass on that one and pick up The Real Lincoln by Thomas Dilorenzo. Get an alternate viewpoint from the deification that Lincoln receives from everyone else. Has a lot of great facts and he makes it very interesting to read.
I'm not saying y'all have to subscribe to the Tyrant Lincoln point of view, just get both sides of the debate so that you can learn as much as you can, and then choose for yourselves
