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.

Lincoln Quotes

[on General Grant] My trust in him is marrow deep.

Abraham Lincoln

Fondly do we hope, fervently do we pray, that this mighty scourge of war may speedily pass away. Yet, if God wills that it continue until all the wealth piled by the bondsman's two hundred and fifty years of unrequited toil shall be sunk, and until every drop of blood drawn with the lash shall be paid by another drawn with the sword, as was said three thousand years ago, so still it must be said "the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether." With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.
