Man just saw it finally. Was skeptical of it but man what a story. Basically its about the whole iranian hostage situation and there were 6 americans in hiding. The whole story is the CIA trying to get them out. This defiantly deserves to be in the best picture category. Ben Affleck who Im not the biggest fan of actually did a great job.

Not movies he wrote / directed. He wrote Good Will Hunting and directed both Gone Baby Gone and The Town. All 3 of these movies are great. Argo? Ehhh.... I thought it sucked.

Argo was good even though you know the history of it.

Wasn't the best IMO.

Shame it wasn't nominated for best director.

I would have been happy with argo, life of pi, or django. Any of those 3 were the best to me

^ Did you come away from the film with more confidence in the prospects of Ben Affleck & his acting chops as it pertains to the role of the caped crusader?

I think he has improved as an actor over the years, definitely a solid lead guy now, but I wasn't thrilled about the casting choice to play Bruce Wayne/Batman.

Argo didn't change anything.

As a Director he has an extremely bright future since he's still a relatively young dude compared to other elite directors, and I'm sure he'll star and do well in future projects, but I'm still not sold on him being a good choice for Batman.

hope I'm proved wrong.

He'll direct a batman which will be interesting. Argo wasn't best picture IMO until the last 50 min or so

Those last 50 min were the best that year by far

But overall I'd still say I enjoyed silver linings playbook in its totality more
