    ★★★★

    A lot better than I remembered, though I think it has its shortcomings. It’s beyond cliched to say this but I think this is one of the times that Spielberg’s sentimentality really does hold the film back. He’s far too sentimental towards both Lincoln himself and America in general. It means the movie has this urge to lean in every time Abe starts giving a (admittedly well written) speech about the lofty ideals America is supposed to stand for, yet…

  • Vampire Hookers

    By the end we were cheering for Pavo and his terrible farts.

    When they introduced the weird sword guys and said their planet was called Salusa Secundus I immediately leaned over to my girlfriend and whispered “Salusa Secundeeznuts” and I don’t think she truly appreciates how quickly I came up with that.

    Honestly I have no idea what people complain about.
