Very close. Two of the best new films I have watched in the last few months, both top notch thrillers, but while I by no means consider myself anti-hollywood, I'm going to side with Drive. Argo might be the more thrilling of the two, and a better story, but Driver is both thrilling and a fantastic piece of art in all departments. It also has some much more refreshing elements to it, namely the soundtrack and Ryan Gosling's performance, whereas Argo feels slightly more Hollywood-esque than it could have been. So while Drive wins this time, they are both films I would recommend to anyone.

Argo is so much the better film that it has to be considered a big mismatch. What film people saw in their own heads when it comes to Drive is one of the greater mysteries of modern cinema. The film just isn't that good. The performances were great but that's a different subject unless you're a film fan that places performance over story.

I did not enjoy Drive. It was way too hyped up before I saw it. Argo was excellent though (also slightly hyped up).

I'll need more time with this one...but for now, it's Drive. Reserve the right to change my mind down the road...

Drive is a much more suspenseful and in-depth movie. Drive has better characters and Argo was good, but slightly overrated, it just didn't do much for me. It's still pretty hard to rank Drive cause it's not the kind of movie you watch once and completely get it. Drive is a great movie and one I will watch many times, Drive wins.

Very good matchup. Drive wins for me because I love the style of that movie and I like driving around at night with a toothpick in my mouth listening to throwbacks of 80s pop music.

Drive gets all the hype by being arty. It's good but I'll go Argo all the way.

Close but Argo was just so damn great for such a simple movie. Though Drive is clearly great, personally I love a film like 12 Angry Men that can take a simple scenario and masterfully execute it.

Drive has aged like a fine ass wine for me. Drive wins.
