Hitchcock In One Corner, Spielberg In the Other,...
I started getting sick over a week ago and a couple of days ago, it took me down. I am so sorry that I am so behind. I have seen Hitchcock and Lincoln and I just happened to be right about both of them (which doesn't happen very often, as you know). Lincoln is so pro-socialist that Spielberg is intentionally reminding Republicans of how our party ended slavery, and so we should be in favor of socialism because that's true equality for all people whereas capitalism is the slavery of all people. On the other hand, Hitchcock, like last year's Best Picture The Artist, is definitely pro-capitalist and while this is probably just a good movie-night rental for you, there were several aspects of the film quite well done. Of course, I am going into more depth on both films, but just so you know on how to plan your holiday movie-going.
Again, all apologies for the long silence!
