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.
  • Lincoln
    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. From the story: "The city of Indianapolis also will consider tax incentives and funding for infrastructure required for the project, according to IEDC." Why would the City need to consider additional tax incentives when Lowe's has already bought the land and reached an agreement with IEDC to bring the jobs? What that tells me is that the City has already pledged the incentives, unofficially, and they just haven't had time to push it through the MDC yet. Either way, subsidizing $10/hour jobs is going to do nothing toward furthering the Mayor's stated goal of attracting middle and upper-middle class residents to Marion County.

  2. Ron Spencer and the entire staff of Theater on the Square embraced IndyFringe when it came to Mass Ave in 2005. TOTS was not only a venue but Ron and his friends created, presented and appeared in shows which embraced the 'spirit of the fringe'. He's weathered all the storms and kept smiling ... bon voyage and thank you.

  3. Not sure how many sushi restaurants are enough, but there are three that I know of in various parts of downtown proper and all are pretty good.

  4. First off, it's "moron," not "moran." 2nd, YOU don't get to vote on someone else's rights and freedoms that are guaranteed by the US Constitution. That's why this is not a state's rights issue...putting something like this to vote by, well, people like you who are quite clearly intellectually challenged isn't necessary since the 14th amendment has already decided the issue. Which is why Indiana's effort is a wasted one and a waste of money...and will be overturned just like this has in every other state.

  5. Rick, how does granting theright to marry to people choosing to marry same-sex partners harm the lives of those who choose not to? I cannot for the life of me see any harm to people who choose not to marry someone of the same sex. We understand your choice to take the parts of the bible literally in your life. That is fine but why force your religious beliefs on others? I'm hoping the judges do the right thing and declare the ban unconstitutional so all citizens of Wisconsin and Indiana have the same marriage rights and that those who chose someone of the same sex do not have less rights than others.
