February 19,2013

"ARGO" available on Blu-ray Combo pack, DVD and for download 2/19!

Looking more and more like a very deserving shoe-in for this years Oscar for Best Picture, Argo arrives on blu-ray just in time for those who haven't seen it to catch up before its crowned the Academy's king. A skillfully crafted tale of espionage and movie-making, Argo is the complete package - a gripping thriller and a hilarious (yet loving) look at the absurdity of Hollywood. The film is gorgeously shot (and looks phenomenal on Blu-ray), and while the extras aren't much to write home about, the feature-length picture-in-picture is cool and director/star Ben Affleck's commentary is mostly informative. We loved Argo and are sure you will too (and if you don't, "Argo F@$K yourself)!

On November 4, 1979, as the Iranian revolution reaches its boiling point, militants storm the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, taking 52 Americans hostage. But, in the midst of the chaos, six Americans manage to slip away and find refuge in the home of Canadian Ambassador Ken Taylor (Garber). Knowing it is only a matter of time before the six are found out and likely killed, the Canadian and American governments ask the CIA to intervene. The CIA turns to their top “exfiltration” specialist, Tony Mendez (Affleck), to come up with a plan to get the six Americans safely out of the country. A plan so incredible, it could only happen in the movies.

Hollywood hijinks and high-stakes espionage collide in “Argo,” arriving onto Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and Digital Download on February 19 from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Group. Based on the declassified true story, “Argo” chronicles the life-or-death covert operation to rescue six Americans, which unfolded behind the scenes of the Iran hostage crisis, focusing on the little-known role that the CIA and Hollywood played.
Academy Award® winner Ben Affleck (“The Town,” “Good Will Hunting”) directs and stars in the film, which is produced by Oscar® nominee Grant Heslov (“Good Night, and Good Luck”), Affleck, and Oscar® winner George Clooney (“Syriana”). “Argo” also stars Bryan Cranston ( “Breaking Bad”), Oscar® winner Alan Arkin (“Little Miss Sunshine”) and John Goodman (“Trouble with the Curve”).
