I’m not much of a gamer, but the trailer directed by Adam Lisagor sure is fabulous.
Argo is on my Oscar list for 2012.
The Iran Hostage Crisis took place in during my freshman year of high school. I was just coming into a vague awareness of news events as I started crossing that bridge from snot nosed kid to snot nosed teenager. The whole affair was bizarre and unthinkable. Ben Affleck’s filmic account of the six Americans who just barely escaped the embassy before it was overrun by the Iranians is surrealistically authentic.
If you’re wondering which movie is going to be the sleeper hit this year, run out and see Mike Birbiglia’s Sleep Walk With Me. It is one of the most original, funny, sweet movies I have ever seen.
I predict that this is going to have a slow consistent rise and then one morning, about two months from now, everyone will be talking about this flick. Great writing, acting and directing, Sleep Walk With Me gets a spot in the Screening Room.
This short movie from NASA about the Curiosity Martian Rover landing tomorrow is as exciting to watch as any movie trailer you’ve seen all year. Except this is a preview for a real life event.
