Who are the Schmoes, and what exactly do they know?
The Schmoes are a couple of regular guys, Kristian Harloff and Mark Ellis, who–like you–are the people for whom movies are made. They know movies, and will give you the straight scoop about ‘em. Each week, we’re posting brand new video from the Schmoes that’ll give their take on the new releases.
Ben Affleck’s Argo is actually based on a real story about a CIA mission to break Americans out of the Middle East in the midst of the Iran hostage crisis in 1979. The story wasn’t widely known until Clinton declassified documents in the 1990s, and was never publicized much until now.
What other movies based on real events have impressed Kristian and Mark? They give their opinion, feel free to give yours in the comments. Don’t forget to check out all the Schmoes Know videos on their Youtube channel.
