Lincoln tells a joke
#1
Recently, I watched the movie "Lincoln" starring Daniel Day Lewis.  It was directed by Steven Spielberg and had an all-star cast including David Straitharn, Tommy Lee Jones, Sally Field, James Spader, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.  It's one of Spielberg's best efforts.  I haven't seen all of his flicks, but I'm moving this one to the top of the list of the ones I've watched.

In one memorable scene, Lincoln tells a joke in the war room while waiting for news from the battle front.

I'm going to try to watch that tomorrow on Netflix... depends on the family things going on.

Did you know there is a site where you can see a list of the 100 best movies available for Netflix streaming now. Of course, that's someone else's idea of what constitutes the 100 best, but in looking to see if "Lincoln" was on it, I saw a lot of movies I've never seen that look good.

If I don't answer when you talk to me or about me, that's likely because I have you on ignore.  Try to PM me. It won't let you PM me if I have you on ignore. There are other people, not members, who peruse this site. I want THEM to know why I don't reply to everyone who talks to or about me.

Loved this movie! Daniel Day Lewis did an excellent job but I think the best was Tommy Lee Jones.

Yeah, Tommy was great as Thaddeus Stevens. Quite the force to be reckoned with. Those boys sure didn't pull any punches when they debated in the House of Reps.
