    @bawnian-dexeus Maybe he and Meryl Streep will make cameos in Expendables 3, LOL.

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx The trailer doesn't do him justice, in my opinion. It's a closer reflection of the film than it is his performance. It could, however, be a case of what happened last year with Leonardo Dicaprio. I personally believe he gave the best performance of 2011 in J. Edgar, but because of the film's lackluster showing, it cost him a bid for an Oscar. There could be a similar dynamic at work this year with Lincoln and DDL's performance.

    Oh, you know I love The Shining. I completely agree that Jack's performance is one of the best ever given on film. As do I the respective performances of Marlon Brando in Streetcar, Waterfront, and Godfather, De Niro in Raging Bull, James Dean in Giant, as well as a handful others. I just see DDL's as possibly the two most immersive performances ever given. However, it should be said that all the other films with great performances I mentioned are classics, which Lincoln won't be, so it should be interesting to see how his performance holds up in years to come.

    @thedude-abides@XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Wonder what else Mr. Lewis will do. He seems to pick specific roles. Not like we will ever see him do something mainstream. Curious
