Box Office Report Paranormal Activity
Paramount Pictures

Another Halloween, another 'Paranormal Activity.' Another 'Paranormal Activity,' another large opening weekend.

‘Argo’ Review

Argo Best Picture Oscars
Warner Bros.

That look. That probing, skeptical, disapproving look the TSA agent gives you at the airport as they look over your driver's license and boarding pass. I have never had a single reason to be nervous in these exchanges -- I've never tried to smuggle so much as a bottle of cough syrup onto an airplane -- but they unsettle me every single time. And this is in the United States and I've done nothing wrong: imagine what it must feel like to walk through a security checkpoint in Iran, traveling under a forged passport under an assumed identity, in the midst of the worst hostage crisis in your nation's history. If you're caught, you're dead, your friends are dead, and maybe every other hostage in the country is dead too.

The incredible true story in Ben Affleck's 'Argo' took place in the late 1970s and early 1980s -- but it plays to relatable modern fears, like our (or, at least, my) irrational terror of airport security.
