So of the Oscar nominees for Best Picture, I’ve watched Lincoln, Zero Dark Thirty, and Argo. Of just those, I would pick Argo. Regarding Lincoln, the acting was great and it was a nice history lesson, but the movie was boring as f*ck. I can appreciate good period pieces and historical dramas, but Lincoln was just 2.5 hours of people in rooms talking. I was hoping they’d throw in a battle from the Civil War or maybe the assassination plot, but nope. I’m not pretentious enough to sit here and say Lincoln was some amazing movie. Movies should entertain and Lincoln does not.
