    So I just watched the supposed Spielberg masterpiece and was left kind of Meh.

    First let me start by saying that I am kind of a Lincoln connoisseur for that I just love his life story....and no not because "OMG he freed the slaves" mumbo jumbo...but his life growing up with all the adversity and strife he faced that started so young. He truly started from nothing.

    Anyway.....back to the movie.

    I walked away with nothing from this movie. I had zero attachment to his character in this film and I felt it just draaaaaaaagged on. They focused on nothing in this movie in my eyes that made him the man that he was and had become through his struggles.

    I am very disappointed actually as I have been eagerly awaiting to see this movie and it's like a slap to the face.

    What did you guys think???
    The streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood and when the drains finally scab over, all the vermin will drown. The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout "Save us!"... and I'll look down and whisper "No. ― Alan Moore

    From a law student's perspective, it was pretty awesome, as it was pretty much just all about the passing of the 14th Amendment.

    I enjoyed it.

    ...I'm not sure that's a particularly ringing endorsement
    Too much focus leads to tunnel vision
    Too much faith leads to religion
    Too much knowledge leads to confusion
    Too many guitar lessons lead to jazz-fusion
