Affleck, you the bomb in Phantoms yo...


In high school I worked at a video store. In the before time when those things existed. I used to watch a section of JASBSB every day on my lunch break.

Affleck was already a star and obviously destined for greatness.

I loved how self aware the View Askewniverse was about this.

Even made fun of himself in this film.

He can win Oscars for Argo or be the best part of Batman v. Superman, but to me he is always the manager of Fashionable Male and wants to do something in an uncomfortable place.

Affleck gets a lot of shit but he’s a versatile and talented guy.

FOR DECADES NOW TOO...SUBTRACT GIGLI AND DAREDEVIL(WHICH ARENT AS BAD AS THEY GOT WRAP FOR)AND THE DUDE RESUME IS FULL OF HITS AND ENJOYABLE STUFF.

reply

I didn’t watch Gigli and only part of Daredevil. He definitely gets a bad wrap. Every talented actor has some turds but he seems to get unnecessarily shit on. He’s been in good stuff and he can act. He can be serious and funny which is a testament to his skill.

I’ve only watched The Town and Gone Baby Gone but those two were damn good.
