TEHRAN, Iran — Iran is planning to sue Hollywood over the Oscar-winning "Argo" because of the movie's allegedly "unrealistic portrayal" of the country, Iranian media reported Tuesday.

Do you think they have a case? Or will this just be to make a point?

well imagine if spielberg never see your house and yet he make a movie about how dirty your house is, I think in some point it makes senses

Good point. I look forward to seeing if there's more to this story, or if it fades away from here.

I've been noticing this more and more out of third world countries, trying to use lawsuits as a form of oppression... and I think it's a good thing.  If oppressive elements in society at least go through the motions, when they didn't even bother to do so before, it's at least a step in the right direction.  It's a sham now, but eventually those judges will start to show some independence...

Lawsuits seem more civilized than other weapons. But lawsuits still seem like a form of warfare.

of course it is... but it's a step in the right direction....

Yes, less killing would be an improvement.

Actually being civilized to each other would be a bigger improvement.
