Sure, the live A&E choices were slim--which contributed to a big weekend at the movie box office.

So what did you see? And what did you think? "Lincoln"? "Twilight"? "Life of Pi"? "Skyfall"?

Your thoughts?

  • Lincoln
    "Lincoln" is a must see if you want to understand the roots of the struggles of our political system. Not an action movie, you know it will end badly, but worth seeing for its historical value and parallels to our current political climate.
  • Don't miss it!
    Lincoln. Fabulous. Outstanding performances by Daniel Day-Lewis & David Strathairn.
  • Life of Pi
    The movie didn't disappoint. I read the book, and was eagerly awaiting its release. It was GREAT!
  • Silver Linings Playbook
    Silver Linings Playbook was an excellent movie, with impressive performances all around. It's a small story about big issues.
  • Lincoln
    Great movie-well done. Great American History lesson for everyone!
  • Lincoln
    Mr. Spielberg's Lincoln is an outstanding piece of moving making. Mr. Day-Lewis gave the performance of his life-time. It is America's politcal system at its best and at its worse all at the same time.
  • Lincoln, Argo, Skyfall
    Skyfall: Great Bond flick but it is still a Bond flick. Nothing cerebral but a lot of fun. Argo: Great movie, keeps your attention, not completely historically accurate. Lincoln: Not just a movie, a cinematic masterpiece. Incredible acting led by Daniel Day Lewis followed closely by a great cast. It is a classic that will be shown 50 years from now.

    My husband wanted to see this and I wanted something else. So glad we went to see Lincoln. Superbly done by all involved. Academy award material! I picked up on several history facts that I had not known.

  1. These liberals are out of control. They want to drive our economy into the ground and double and triple our electric bills. Sierra Club, stay out of Indy!

  2. These activist liberal judges have gotten out of control. Thankfully we have a sensible supreme court that overturns their absurd rulings!

  3. Maybe they shouldn't be throwing money at the IRL or whatever they call it now. Probably should save that money for actual operations.

  4. For you central Indiana folks that don't know what a good pizza is, Aurelio's will take care of that. There are some good pizza places in central Indiana but nothing like this!!!

  5. I am troubled with this whole string of comments as I am not sure anyone pointed out that many of the "high paying" positions have been eliminated identified by asterisks as of fiscal year 2012. That indicates to me that the hospitals are making responsible yet difficult decisions and eliminating heavy paying positions. To make this more problematic, we have created a society of "entitlement" where individuals believe they should receive free services at no cost to them. I have yet to get a house repair done at no cost nor have I taken my car that is out of warranty for repair for free repair expecting the government to pay for it even though it is the second largest investment one makes in their life besides purchasing a home. Yet, we continue to hear verbal and aggressive abuse from the consumer who expects free services and have to reward them as a result of HCAHPS surveys which we have no influence over as it is 3rd party required by CMS. Peel the onion and get to the root of the will find that society has created the problem and our current political landscape and not the people who were fortunate to lead healthcare in the right direction before becoming distorted. As a side note, I had a friend sit in an ED in Canada for nearly two days prior to being evaluated and then finally...3 months later got a CT of the head. You pay for what you get...
