The film of the year!

"You can't build cover stories around a movie that doesn't exist. You need a script, you need a producer. "

Gone Baby Gone and The Town were enough to establish Ben Affleck as a superlative director, but Argo verifies that he's a filmmaking force to be reckoned with. What we have here is a godsend of a motion picture; a smart, riveting old-fashioned thriller which conveys a fascinat... read more

A great movie

Since I heard about this movie, I became intrigued and when it won finally the Best Picture Academy Award, I thought it was finally time to watch the damned thing. And, to my surprise, I really loved it. I mean, I was expecting something good but not something so entertaining and quite flawless. Indeed, it was historically fascinating, it was a thrilling thriller and there were even some hilarious... read more

Let’s all just take a breath and a step back and actually look at Argo for a minute. Is it a bad movie? Not by a mile. In fact, it’s probably one of the better mainstream films to come out in 2012. But is it the awards-worthy juggernaut that it looks to become in the coming weeks? God, no! Nomination it for Best Picture all you want, but don’t give it the damn thing.

29 Characters Who Were Whitewashed by Hollywood (29 movies items)

"Tony Mendez Tony Mendez is a character in the 2012 film Argo, but he's also a real person, and that person is Mexican-American. Mendez is the author of a book called The Master of Disguise, about his experiences aiding in the rescue of six U.S. diplomats during the Iran hostage crisis. Argo was directed by Ben Affleck, who felt it would be a better idea to grow a beard and play the lead role himself, rather than casting an actual Latino person."

If There Had Been 10 (10 movies items)

" 2012 honestly included most of the big players. The only other two that I think could've made it in are Skyfall and Moonrise Kingdom. While Skyfall did get five noms, and won two, I think that the Academy would've went with Anderson's film. It was the more awards-friendly of the two, and Skyfall always carried around the stigma of an action movie. And while they both made the cut at the PGA awards, Moonrise was also tipped by the WGA, BFCA (Critic's Choice), HFPA (Globes), Skyfall was not. Li"

If There Had Been 5 (8 movies items)

" Argo and Lincoln were the two obvious locks going into nomination morning, Silver Linings Playbook was a crowd-pleaser, and had the ever important Weinstein tag on it, and Life of Pi had hung on all throughout the season. Assuming that those four were locked in (they were), the only real question mark would be the fifth spot. Zero Dark Thirty was clearly the critic's favorite but, judging by Bigelow's director snub, it didn't have the support that many expected. Some would probably argue that "
