Argo. I liked this one. The tension isn’t the violent suspense of The Town or the queasy terror of Gone Baby Gone. It’s just a precarious scheme, one chance, and there’s no shooting their way out. Very polished. And Ben Affleck has the best poker face in the game right now.
Thin Ice. It never quite hit the right rhythm on the funny parts, and the soundtrack wasn’t sure what kind of story this was, but this was a decent, moderately entertaining movie until the last five minutes when it turned into Ocean’s Eleven. There are twists, and then there are twists that undermine everything you just saw. Turns out, the movie wasn’t about the movie you thought you were watching! Disappointing.
