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 fascinating true story i... read more

A very good movie

I already saw this movie but, since it was a while back, I thought I might as well check it out again. The first time around, ever since I had heard about this movie, I became intrigued and when it won finally the Best Picture Academy Award, I became even more interested. And, to my surprise, I really enjoyed it. I mean, I was expecting something good but not something so entertaining. Indeed, it ... 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.

Movies the giraffe watched in 2021: June (58 movies items)

"First viewing - June 5th I decided to have a Ben Affleck as director double feature on this Saturday night, and wound up having a pretty good time with Argo. The story is quite fascinating and the cast and crew are firing on all cylinders here. I was really amped up during the final stretch of the film, which tells you they did a great job of making me care about the characters and what they went through. I'm so glad I finally caught up with this film, and I'd gladly watch it again some time."

" Notes: To my surprise, I really enjoyed this movie. I mean, I was expecting something good but not something so entertaining. Indeed, it seemed to be historically pretty accurate, it was a thrilling thriller and there were even some hilarious bits. Even the animated introduction was neat because it gave a context for the whole thing.
