My trailer review for Argo said...

"The trailer for Argo set up the story so well that one didn't need to know the history. It was interesting, exciting and amusing.  There was a nice combination of suspense, foreshadowing and what a trailer is supposed to do...."

The wife and I finally watched Argo.

Because everyone knew what the outcome would be, we hoped that the very good trailer would lead to a very good film.

Argo won the Best Picture Oscar this year.

I had heard that the story told in Argo, while accurate in some ways, was not completely accurate.

But it won the Oscar Best Picture.

While the acting was very good and Affleck was again surrounded by a very strong supporting cast, the depiction of this story could have been stronger.

But it won the Oscar Best Picture.

While the film had some good tension, there was no "edge of the seat" suspense because we knew the outcome.  Still, the race to the finish was weak.

Argo was a good story told simply, but I don't think it deserved the Best Picture Oscar.

I asked the wife what she thought of it.

She quoted Alan Arkin and said, "Argo-f**k yourself."

PLEASE NOTE:  Sometimes the views of the wife may or may not necessarily reflect the views of Beerbohmtastic.
