    Re: Argo

    Just saw this tonight and for once we both liked the same movie! Especially enjoyed the antics of the Hollywood group, and the nailbiting suspense--which is hard to imagine given that we all know more or less how it turned out. I liked the final credits where they showed the actor with the 'real" person, and gave some info about what happened to them in real life, so don't leap out of your seats at the end.
    My audience burst into applause at the end.

    What a great movie!
    And, while I usually detest the liberal use of the F word in films, they said it so much at the beginning of the movie that it became like any other banal word.
    Terrific suspense throughout.
    A very well crafted and well acted movie.

    I watched it on pay-per-view during the Oscars. It was a really good movie. Not a great one, but definitely a good one. You could tell Alan Arkin and John Goodman enjoyed every line of their dialogue. I love Alan Arkin.

    I'm not an Affleck fan. Those two made the movie for me.

    I was 13 when this happened and I mostly recall Ken Taylor being on the news all the time. I had to laugh when I saw Victor Garber sporting Taylor's salt & pepper 'fro and giant glasses.

    Plus Taylor was huge in all this, the movie made it look like he had a very small role in what took place.

    I normally don't like the use of the F bomb, but given the context throughout, it didn't bother me too much during this movie.
    Yeah it was a great movie but there were definitely enough F bombs and other curses to make the movie Rated R.. mainly in the first 15 minutes or so..

    The movie had its share of dramatic license, but it was a solid film.
