Penny Thoughts ‘14—Argo (2012) ****

R, 120 min.
Director: Ben Affleck
Writers: Chris Terrio, Tony Mendez (memoir “The Master of Disguise”), Joshua Bearman (article “The Great Escape”)
Starring: Ben Affleck, Bryan Cranston, Alan Arkin, John Goodman, Victor Garber, Tate Donovan, Clea Duvall, Scoot McNairy, Rory Cochrane, Christopher Denham, Kerry Bishé, Kyle Chandler, Chris Messina, Zeljiko Ivanek, Titus Welliver, Keith Szarabajka, Bob Gunton, Richard Kind, Philip Baker Hall, Sheila Vand, Page Leong

Not only do I like Ben Affleck to play Batman, I’d like him to direct the “Man of Steel” sequel. How about some real suspense as opposed to video game action sequences? Try not to get worked up during the “Argo” airport sequence. Yes, that’d be much better.
