Happy Belated President’s Day

I know this post is late, but it was an idea I had been working on, so I figured better late than never.

President’s day is celebrated in America as a day to honor all of our amazing and admirable leaders and by that I mean we just sit around talking about how great Lincoln was. 

Speaking of Lincoln, there are two new films coming out that are clearly factual and starring none other than Lincoln, himself. Okay, actors are portraying him, but close enough. My question for you, which of these Lincolns on the big screen is your favorite?

Benjamin Walker as Lincoln in the future film: Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter:

Daniel Day Lewis as Lincoln in the future film: Lincoln (directed by Steven Spielberg – yes this matters in your decision making process):

Or Henry Fonda’s portrayal of young Lincoln in John Ford’s  Young Mr. Lincoln:

Okay, so that’s not a future film but an old film. Frankly though, look at this guy, he’s got Lincoln spot-on:

Well I guess it’s clear which one is my favorite…or at least until I see the other films.
