If you saw the movie Lincoln, you can probably understand why it won so many awards. I thought it was a pretty entertaining movie. I bought the movie on Blu-Ray and want to share this great movie with you by giving a new copy to you, my faithful readers.

Lincoln_Superset_PkShtOne of the year’s most critically acclaimed and best reviewed motion picture dramas of the year, DreamWorks Pictures and Steven Spielberg’s “LINCOLN” arrives in North America on Blu-ray™ Combo Pack, Digital and On-Demand platforms on March 26, 2013 and Internationally on Digital HD beginning on April 24th and Blu-ray/ DVD on May 8th. With two Academy Award®-wins for “Best Performance By An Actor In A Leading Role” & “Best Achievement In Production Design”; a Golden Globe for “Best Performance by An Actor In A Motion Picture-Drama”; a BAFTA for “Leading Actor”; and AFI “Movie Of The Year,” “LINCOLN” is this year’s must-own motion picture to add to any collection!

As a 2013 Oscar® and Golden Globe® Award-winner for his performance as America’s 16th president, Daniel Day-Lewis leads an all-star cast including Academy Award® winners Tommy Lee Jones and Sally Field. Also starring David Strathaim, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and James Spader, “LINCOLN” is based on a screenplay by Pulitzer Prize-winner Tony Kushner. The film is scored by multiple Oscar-winner John Williams.

Inspired by the true-life events confronting Abraham Lincoln and his monumental moral and political challenge to amend the United States Constitution to permanently abolish slavery, “LINCOLN” is a rich and compelling historical and human drama that has been hailed as one of the best film of the year. In-depth bonus features on the Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack takes viewers behind-the-scenes of director Spielberg’s life-long fascination with Lincoln and the 12 years it took to bring the story of one of history’s and mankind’s greatest triumphs to the screen.

  1. “We shall sooner have the bird by hatching the egg than by smashing it.”

  2. “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”

  3. Though the entire screenplay is filled with gorgeous, poetic, stirring speeches, my favorite quote from the film is certainly Lincoln’s rousing response to bickering within his cabinet:
    “I can’t listen to this anymore. I can’t accomplish a goddamn thing of any worth until we cure ourselves of slavery and end this pestilential war! I wonder if any of you or anyone else knows it. I know! I need this! This amendment is that cure! We’ve stepped out upon the world stage now. Now! With the fate of human dignity in our hands. Blood’s been spilled to afford us this moment now! Now!”
    I was trembling in my seat, awe-struck.

  4. These two quotes are my favorites:

    1) “We shall sooner have the bird by hatching the egg than by smashing it.”
    2) “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.”

  5. This is also my favorite Lincoln quote: “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”

  6. The probability that we may fall in the struggle ought not to deter us from the support of a cause we believe to be just; it shall not deter me.

  7. “God bless the soldiers and seamen, with all their brave commanders.”

  9. “My concern is not whether God is on our side; my greatest concern is to be on God’s side, for God is always right.”

  10. Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
