MovieButts #41 The BEST & WORST of Director Ben Affleck - Argo (2012) & Live by Night (2016)
Ben Affleck plays a Mexican in 'Argo', a movie about how Islam is bad, and somehow that's less offensive than 'Live by Night', a film in which Brendan Gleeson is forced to sit next to Sienna Miller's awful Irish accent (that's not why it's offensive, it's offensive cause it sucks...or does it?). Where is Matt Damon?
Acting under the cover of a Hollywood producer scouting a location for a science fiction film, a CIA agent launches a dangerous operation to rescue six Americans in Tehran during the U.S. hostage crisis in Iran in 1979.
A group of Boston-bred gangsters set up shop in balmy Florida during the Prohibition era, facing off against the competition and the Ku Klux Klan.
Each week we take the best and worst films from a filmmaker or franchise and discuss why one worked and one didn't. And we use freakin maths to determine the best and worst, so no arguing. Unless you think science is wrong???...yeah thought so.
