Release date: Nov. 16 Blockbuster, Oscar bait or something else? Oscar bait, and maybe a blockbuster too "Lincoln" opened in a handful of theaters on Nov. 9, but it expands nationwide on the 16th. Steven Spielberg's film has won mostly great reviews for its tight focus -- it covers the last few months of Abraham Lincoln's life -- and Daniel Day-Lewis' performance in the title role. That plus a stellar cast (Tommy Lee Jones, Sally Field, James Spader, John Hawkes, Lee Pace) adds up to a history lesson that doubles as excellent entertainment. -- Rick Porter, Zap2it
