  • I agree that this was a fantastic film and even though you knew the outcome, you still were filled with suspense because every scene was so intense and well-acted and directed. I was on the edge of my seat and especial toward the end in the airport because you just felt as though something was definitely going to go horribly wrong.

  • The airport scene was one of the most tense I can recall in recent movies I've seen.

    I really like how they didn't "Hollywood-ize" the movie and make Affleck's character this gunslinging super hero going in and taking on Tehran all by his lonesome. I really like his directorial style.

  • I was shocked at church Wednesday night that a friend of mine, someone about my age, had not even *heard* of "Argo." We had to explain to him who was in it and what it was about. I still haven't seen it yet, but I want to.

    It really seemed, about the time of "Gigli," that Affleck had turned out to be just a flash in the pan. Someone at one of the awards ceremonies referred to his "second act," and I think that's true. He's really shown that he's got the talent for a long career, whether behind the camera, in front of it or both.

  • Definitely true John. He's come a long way since "Daredevil" and "Pearl Harbor" as far as acting goes.
