Top 10 Movie Moments of 2012

With Argo, director Ben Affleck turned a slice of history into an intense drama/thriller movie experience - and that edge-of-your-seat tension reached a fever pitch when the six Americans hiding out in Iran attempted their bold airport escape under the wing of CIA exfiltration guru, Tony Mendez (Ben Affleck).

In addition to seeing "The Six" have to sell Iranian guards on their fake identities and faux sci-fi film production, we got a delicious and humorous moment of stress watching Alan Arkin and John Goodman's Hollywood power-players stranded on a movie set, while the most important phone call in the world was ringing away in their faux studio office.

Down to the last second of escape, the tension (and ultimate catharsis) of this exodus to freedom made for one of the most enjoyable movie experiences of the year.
