I have no problem with Oscarbait, as long as it’s good. Ben Affleck’s latest film is further proof that he had no business trying to be the It Man of Hollywood blockbusters and rom coms. Instead of making shitburger after shitburger, his Gone Baby Gone, and The Town, showcased that the man can direct the hell out of a film, even if it’s fairly standard by plot. He’s been reminiscent of Eastwood with his film direction, and even his acting has improved. That being said, I think Argo has the potential to be very good.
I’ve been excited about this from the start. I’ve heard about this story many times but mostly because of Jack Kirby’s involvement. They hired him to draw up some alien designs and such to help the charade.

So pumped for this. Especially because Jack Kirby is being played by the great Michael Parks.
Affleck was the bomb in Phantoms.
But seriously this looks awesome, I hadn’t seen the trailer yet.
