Argo.  Ben Affleck’s based-on-a-true-story “Movie of the Year” Oscar winner.  I finally got around to watching it last night thanks to a free Redbox code, and you know what?  It didn’t blow me away like I would expect the “movie of the year” to do.  Don’t get me wrong; I enjoyed it as a paint-by-the-numbers thriller, but can anybody tell me exactly what made this the Academy-appointed movie of 2012?

I probably shouldn’t get so hung up on the plethora of historical inaccuracies, but I have to admit I was a little disappointed when I found out that the majority of the best and most tense scenes were completely fabricated.  Therein lies the trouble with watching a movie with your smart phone in hand.  “Hmm, I wonder how much of this is true?  What??  Welp, that scene was completely made up.  Ooooh, this is tense!  Sheesh, completely fictional as well.”  Ah well, it was certainly worth a free code and 2 hours of my time.

I think what really would’ve made this a legit Oscar winner is if during the “airport runway climax,” Jim Carrey appeared out of nowhere, hijacked a mobile stairway, and pursued the plane with the Iranians.

Would’ve been awesome.
