Argo - Movie In A Nutshell (video)

12.20.2016

Ben Affleck is back, both in front of the camera and behind the camera, in the upcoming crime drama LIVE BY NIGHT. The last time he played both actor and director was in the Oscar winning Best Picture ARGO. Though Hollywood congratulated him with the best movie of the year, they also ripped his heart out and set it on fire by not even nominating him for best director. ARGO is a movie about making a fake movie, so if you love movies, you get to double dip. So let's take a look back at a movie that took place in 1979 and covers many issues we thankfully don't have to deal with today...terrorism, politics between our government entities, US-Iran relations, child labor, fake hollywood, using the media to push your own agenda, abortion, excessive security at airports, bad science fiction, Canada, and anger management issues in Iran.

Extra Tidbit: In real life, Tony Mendez, the Ben Affleck character, did not discover a script called Argo. The real fake movie was originally called Lord of Light, and John Chambers (played by John Goodman) brought Tony the script. Tony thought the name should be changed and switched it to Argo, after a knock-knock joke.

I'm sorry, but Argo sucked. It was so by-the-numbers. Affleck's character says they should do Plan A, but everyone is against it. Then Plan B is suggested and it's only liked by 60% of the people. Then Plan C happens, they all agree, and then they all leave. There were only 2 scenes of tension in the entire movie. When they were walking the streets and at the end. The rest was them just talking about what to do to escape.

And the beginning was so cheesy. Just so dumb. The guy running the

And the beginning was so cheesy. Just so dumb. The guy running the embassy, or whatever it was, says he'll go outside and try to calm the angry crowd down. The crowd that clearly wants to kill them all. Then he goes outside, but 5 seconds later he's screaming to be let back in...I seriously doubt anything close to that happened. No sane person would try to do that.

I'm right there with ya! Argo was a complete piece of crap!! It was so bad I almost turned it off. I still don't get the Affleck love people are throwing at him. Dude ruins everything he is attached to. At least everything that came after Chasing Amy, and he got too full of himself. I see him in old Kevin Smith films, and he actually has a glimmer of personality, humor and talent. If we have to have him, bring back that Affleck!
