    I want to see Sinister. I really really do, but I know I will freak the fudge out!

      I finally saw Argo I was quite impressed. I thought Ben Affleck did a great job. Although it was told in a linear format it held my interest from beginning to end. The entire cast did a great job of not overacting when there was plenty of opportunity to do so. In that way u could focus on the story and events rather than one particular performance. I hope that made sense? None, the less it was a drama so there were some embellishing for effects. But they did do their research and it showed in the overall production. I would definitely see it again.
