"Adam" PG-13

Ann says that this film is honest, but almost too much so. She and Les like the offbeat and upbeat tone at points, but it's a little bit too much overall.
Ann & Les hated this "stale" film that overused '70s speak like "psychedelic" and "groovy" until it became cliché.​

"Argo" R

Ann says the movie succeeds as good "popcorn entertainment," but it is not very true to the real life happenings and is not an altogether exceptional film.
