    Amy---all of those movies bite! I couldn't tolerate one boring minute of it along with those horrible actors. Affleck ruined "Argo'' with his anti American commentary at the beginning and end of what could have been a great movie. The movies I like the public hates! I thought ''Emperor'' was very good. I loved the ''Iron Lady''. 99% of what Hollywood produces is horrible.
