Bridging the Gaps

Almost three years ago, the Academy Awards gave the Best Picture Oscar to Ben Affleck’s Iranian hostage drama Argo to encourage making more medium-budget movies for grown-ups. Bridge of Spies, Steven Spielberg’s Cold War film about the negotiations to exchange Soviet spymaster Rudolf Abel for American U-2 pilot Francis Gary Powers, is very much in the Argo tradition.

    I’m expecting the announcement of the new 120 million dollar production of Cecil the Lion. Or even better, Spiderman saves Cecil the Llon. I noticed however, that Hollywood has finally come out with a movie this month that takes on the evils of a religion…. the Catholic Church. How brave.

    Is it another hate-America-fest?

  • Clausewitz

    So like Argo it will be totally historically inaccurate and total bull shit as well?
