    Re: Argo

    ^ When a film re-enacts an actual event, one expects to see what actually happened. Hollywood has written too much history in their attempts to show it.

    It's an adaptation, not a documentary.

    But people are going to that movie believing it's the truth when most of it is fiction. It was very loosely based upon the actual events, but that's about as far as it goes, and it certainly wasn't the way the movie was promoted.

    The same goes for Zero Dark Thirty. It was promoted as being truthful and factual when it clearly wasn't.

    I'm not saying they were bad movies. They were probably good on their own merits. My complaint is that they're being promoted as true event when they aren't, which is what I said in my first post. The movie is fiction promoted as fact, and a vast majority of viewers won't know the truth because they think they've just seen it.

    In actuality, in both films you get a reasonable depiction of the truth. It says based on a true story and there is and always be a creative license with film makers. Lincoln is not entirely the truth but it tells a very important and engrossing story close to the truth. I don't think there is anyone going to see either of these films thinking they are getting a step by step, word for word true re-enactment of events. If you expect the truth, nothing but the truth then you'd never see a film based on a true happening. I think you are being unrealistic in your expectations of film. Can you name one film that was right down the line true to it's real happening?
    I think you mistake me for someone who cares.
