Movie fans should tune in to hear a special interview with Ben Affleck as we discuss his critically acclaimed film Argo, the year in Tomatometer scores and which films were fresh or rotten. We encourage movie lovers everywhere to seek out any of the films on this list that they haven't yet had a chance to watch. Among them are some great titles that may not be in the spotlight during Oscar season, but won over critics throughout the year."
