OVERRATED

Refighting the Civil War: Not to diminish a pivotal event in our nation's history, but every few years, Hollywood gets a taste for revisiting a period, and now we're in the thick of it with the war's 150th anniversary. With "The Conspirator," (pictured) a new History Channel film and a Lincoln biopic in the works, it's almost enough to make you forget "Glory" (1989), "Gettysburg" (1993), Ken Burns' sprawling documentary and the countless films that already have fought these battles so thoroughly.
