Movie – Argo: A

A
I love suspense. Love it. Apparently Affleck loves it too, and shoved tons of it into Argo. Some could be seen as forced to those less inclined to the tactic, but I ate it up. It also combined the seemingly polar subjects of international conflict and a satirical look at Hollywood surprisingly well. Lots of great actors too.

Movie – State of Play: A

I saw this in the theater when it came out but I don’t remember enjoying it as much. It had several of the good kind of plot twists. You know, the kind that make you say, “of course!” instead of, “wait, what?” Plenty of good acting, and from actors I like. I must have been tired or something the first time.
