Anyone Seen Argo? (SPOILER ALERT)

It was a pretty good movie... but naturally very Hollywood dramatized.

They had one female Iran character... who could have been a good point in the film to show some of the stuggle between both sides... but her character is just kind of there.

Good flick.. but i felt it was another one of those Hollywood flicks that only shows one side of the story & the other side is just seen as the villian.

It also minimized roles of the Canadian operatives, who were as courageous and heroic as Mendez.

I was thinking of seeing it, but haven't. The previews look interesting but I think Ben Affleck is hugely overrated..that is as an actor. So I don't know. I'll probably wait until I can rent it on Red Box.

I will forever love and miss you...my sweet Prince.

Eh, that's fair enough.

I Think oh Ben can be good when he wants... but he can be FLAT AS FUCK when he wants to lol

So i can see what you mean.

He is a good writer & director though.

The only role I enjoyed him in was when he was in "The Boiler Room" even though his total screen time was probably nothing but 20 minutes. lol
