I really liked this show. Although I was expecting a movie (not sure why) but my children quickly let me know that it was a compilation of shows and not one long movie.  We have always been fans of Kung Fu Panda, I mean seriously, who doesn't love the underdog. I know I have always enjoyed watching shows that teach my children that just because you're not "ideal", "perfect", or what's expected doesn't mean you can't strive for greatness and achieve it!!  I love Kung Fu Panda, I really like these shows and the lessons that can be learned from watching them.  You should give second chances but keep watch for the snakes out there who are just in for their own benefit.  I really think anyone could learn something from this TV series.  Po is a great Dragon Warrior even though I shake my head at him often!!

I give this 5 out of 8 thumbs up!!

Killing Lincoln Review

Narrated by Oscar winner Tom Hanks* and produced by Tony Scott (Unstoppable, The A-Team) & Ridley Scott (Prometheus, American Gangster), KILLING LINCOLN delivers a thrilling perspective into the criminal mind of John Wilkes Booth and his co-conspirators. Watch the conspiracy unfold on Digital HD May 21 and Blu-ray and DVD June 11 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment – just in time for Father’s Day!

Based on The New York Times best-selling novel, KILLING LINCOLN is the suspenseful, eye-opening account of the events surrounding the assassination of U.S. President Abraham Lincoln. While some aspects of the plot to slay Lincoln and cripple the newly forming union are widely known, much more of the history unfolds in this insightful thriller. As John Wilkes Booth becomes increasingly obsessed with removing Lincoln from office, a secret faction of conspirators forms, and ultimately empowers Booth to carry out an event that will change America forever. Narrated by Oscar® Winner Tom Hanks* and produced by Tony Scott and Ridley Scott, this historical masterpiece stars Billy Campbell (TV’s The Killing) in a spectacular turn as President Lincoln.

KILLING LINCOLN recounts one of the most dramatic events in American history and details how one gunshot changed the country forever. The movie premiered on the National Geographic Channel and was seen by 3.4 million people, making it the most-watched broadcast in the network’s history. This epic chronicle is the first in a trilogy of books written by Bill O’Reilly and his researcher and partner Martin Dugard that will be adapted for the screen with National Geographic and Scott Free Productions. The second in the trilogy is “Killing Kennedy,” a riveting chronicle of the shocking events surrounding the assassination of John F. Kennedy. The final installment in the trilogy is “Killing Jesus,” which follows the events leading up to the crucifixion.

The KILLING LINCOLN Blu-ray and DVD are loaded with extra features and additional content that takes the viewer deeper into the shocking events surrounding the unthinkable tragedy.

*Actor: 1994, Forrest Gump; 1993, Philadelphia.

I must admit I didn't know much about the assassination of President Lincoln, partially to blame is that I'm Canadian and didn't learn this in history class.  I am, however, very happy that I was given this movie to review because it allowed me to see the side of a man that I did not know.  I mean, I knew he was the President, former President, but I didn't know what he stood for, what he was trying to accomplish, essentially what got him killed.  I didn't know that he truly was a remarkable man, it's too bad others of that time couldn't see past their own foolish pride.  I have strong opinions and I'm not one to budge from them, I believe that all politicians are crooks and get paid way to much, they say they'll do things but never do, never try to, never ever desire to change...BUT... then there was Lincoln, he was trying to make a difference, and he was succeeding.  Too bad some people didn't like that.  The U.S. would have been such a different place had Lincoln's reign as President lasted longer.  I really enjoyed learning this about the American history.  I feel bad that one of the "greatest presidents of the U.S.A." was murdered in such a way, in any way.  It really does bother me that some people weren't accepting of the change, that a great man was killed because he was making the country a better place.  He was a kind, gentle and caring man who was making a better place for children, he wanted so much more for the country and the people of it.  This is a great look at the death of Lincoln, the events leading up to it and the days that followed, the consequences faced by the parties involved and the outcomes of the families.

If you are a "history buff" or someone who just likes the past then you should check this movie out.  It came out June 11th and it's a very good telling of what happened on the days surrounding the death of President Lincoln.  Enjoy...

I give this movie 2 out of 2 thumbs up!!
