About to pop in Lincoln or Killing them Softly. Gonna go with Killing them Softly because I'm at the end of a 54 hour week and I doubt I last two+ hours.

Personally I thought Lincoln was long-winded and fairly dry for about 45-60 minutes in the middle.

i literally fell asleep part way through that movie - and it's not b/c i'm a dumb canadian - i'm interested in US history...but did not like that film.

as an aside, one of my chicago cousins just got accepted to university of wisconsin - madison this week ... this is a very exciting day for our family b/c said cousin, while having great high school marks, managed to crash the ACT every time she took it ... and her college counsellor told her she wouldn't even get wait listed at wisconsin - so the fact she has been accepted is a proud day for the family

Ha, yep. I was being a bit conservative with the 45-60 mark. One of the more boring movies I've seen in a theater that I can remember.

Lincoln was purely a vehicle for Daniel Day-Lewis to win another Oscar for Best Actor. Beyond that the movie doesn't really do much for me.

Django Unchained was probably my favorite movie of last year.

Less than two months!

You remind me alot of myself when I was your age. Never really got into crazy dating, dances, hanging out with GF's crowd. All I cared about was watching hockey, playing hockey, playing/listening to music. The girls picked up on that vibe though, really wish I could go back again and do it all over. You never think about it at the time when you're young like a lot of things.

Killing them softly was pretty solid for a crime drama/comedy with sociopolitical overtones.

Maybe it's because I am an old fart but I like Lincoln a lot. But then again I went into it with am open mind. I think too often people go into movies expecting something and when they don't get it feel disappointed.

If by overtones you mean "we're going to play exactly what we're symbolizing over the radio a dozen times" then sure!

That's why I didn't say undertones.

Kept getting harassed at the train stations about it. Alas, I did not.

Kelly was gonna win a landslide no matter what, wouldn't be worth the effort to bother going for me.

I've never had Chicago Deep Dish. How representative is Lou Malnati's "Lou to go" pizzas?

Most people love it, but truth be told Lou Malnati's is actually one of the few pizzas I honestly don't like. It's definitely one of the mainstays, though.

Where are you? I know a few good pizza places with good Chicago style pizza elsewhere, on the off-chance you're in a place like Champaign. If you're in Chicago, just go outside!

No, I'm in Western Illinois. Probably not much out here.

Be thankful you're not in this dump of a town.

Papa Del's is good though. I imagine that's what NFS was referring to.

Damn straight. Still my favorite deep dish pizza of all time and second only to Home Run Inn for thinner pizza.

And sorry, don't really know western Illinois that well, so can't help you there.

Don't feel bad. The people who live here don't know it well.
