Weekend Movie Preview: November 9, 2012

by at . Comments

As one of the world’s biggest Bond fans, it’s hard to admit that this weekend at the movies is about anything else but Skyfall. But, it is about much more... a certain epic biopic from Steven Spielberg. The other huge new film to land in theaters this second weekend of November is the astounding Lincoln. Daniel Day Lewis was born to portray our greatest president and since Daniel Craig was also born to be Bond, this is a weekend full of movies that are destiny fulfilled.

Skyfall: Bond is back and better than ever, as we state in our Skyfall review. Craig completely comes into his own as 007 and his global journey takes us to places that director Sam Mendes has crafted out of what has to be heaven. It is thrilling, enlightening, entertaining and above all else… the Best Bond film of all-time.

Lincoln: Only opening in a few markets before going large next weekend, Spielberg’s Lincoln lands and Day Lewis is in Oscar form as the sixteenth president who united a divided nation. The supporting cast is each equally as compelling as the next, led by Tommy Lee Jones, Sally Field, James Spader, John Hawkes, Gloria Reuben and Joseph Gordon Levitt. As our Lincoln review teases… Spielberg’s latest has Oscar written all over it from top to bottom.

In Limited Release…
Nature Calls: The comedy that features some of the best up-and-coming superstars-to-be in movie hilarity lands on just a few screens across the land. From Rob Riggle, Johnny Knoxville and Patton Oswalt… the funny is sure to be found in the story of Oswalt’s scout troop leader and a disastrous camping trip. Nature Calls did not screen for critics, stay with Movie Fanatic for our upcoming review.

It was right after the revolution, right after peace had been concluded. And Ethan Allen went to London to help our new country conduct its business with the king. The English sneered at how rough we are and rude and simple-minded and on like that, everywhere he went. Til one day he was invited to the townhouse of a great English lord. Dinner was served, beverages imbibed, time passed as happens and Mr. Allen found he needed the privy. He was grateful to be directed to this. Relieved, you might say. Mr. Allen discovered on entering the water closet that the only decoration therein was a portrait of George Washington. Ethan Allen done what he came to do and returned to the drawing room. His host and the others were disappointed when he didn't mention Washington's portrait. And finally his lordship couldn't resist and asked Mr. Allen had he noticed it. The picture of Washington. He had. Well what did he think of its placement? Did it seem appropriately located to Mr. Allen? And Mr. Allen said it did. The host was astounded. "Appropriate? George Washington's likeness in a water closet?" "Yes," said Mr. Allen, "where it will do good service. The world knows nothing will make an Englishman shit quicker than the sight of George Washington." I love that story.
