    Denny, I’m confused. There weren’t any vampires?

      You stole my very question.

    He doesn’t sound much like Lincoln. (I know what Lincoln is *supposed* to sound like from watching Bill and Ted.)

      Ha, that’s funny! I was thinking he didn’t sound like Lincoln either, and I think my expectation has been shaped by Bill and Ted as well. Party on, dude!

    Patton had a high pitched voice, but it was just not possible for Hollywood to show that aspect of him in a movie. In no way did it make him less of a general, but it simply did not fit the stereotypes, so they simply changed it to make it conform.

    I am looking forward to the Lincoln movie.

    It’s hard for me to believe that this movie will be historically accurate considering the legend that has built up around the man.

    With Hollywood running the show, Lincoln will not be the man of history but of legend.

    The movie claims to be based on a history book, Team of Rivals, the Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln by Doris Goodwin. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lincoln_(2012_film)
