Ha. Took me a second, but then I remembered where that came from.

They gave you a small opening and you nailed it, subby.

Oh man. I usually defend Affleck against the haters because I don't get the hate but that was "douchebag" personified.

Best he's looked in a while. But i grew up in the 70's and 80's when that look was cool. Kinda looks like Hart Bochner (Ellis) from Die Hard but not as oily.

It was also 10 years ago.

Said it before, say it again. Over 90% of the hate for Affleck comes from an overexposed relationship that BOTH parties moved on from 8 years ago, along with a movie that he was derided for in which he wasn't even the worst thing in it! (Daredevil, Farrell)

Affleck's been in some very fun and watchable movies. He is transitioning to directing, and doing a great job.

You don't seem him stumbling drunk out of bars, he's making a very good contribution to popular culture, and when you DO seem him in public off the red carpet, he's usually taking care of his kids.

Seriously, WHAT IS THE FARKING PROBLEM?

According to what I've read, he may have been balding and/or wearing a piece a few years ago, but he used treatments like Rogaine or something that worked for him, so what you see now is his "real" hair.

MattyFridays: Seriously, WHAT IS THE FARKING PROBLEM?


This. He's a talented writing and director, and while he's not a great actor he's seldom ever been the worst actor in any film he's appeared in (Good Will Hunting being the only one that comes to mind), and on at least one occasion he was the best (Boiler Room). He got his break in Hollywood not because he was a good looking guy or because he banged/dated the right people. He got his break because he helped write a brilliant farking script, had just enough connections to get it in front of some people, got it made, and was smart enough to take less money for the script to make sure he got some face time on the screen. Ever since then he's proven to be a decent guy who has done no more terrible 'paycheck' movies (including, ironically, Paycheck) that anyone else. And some of the stuff he's written/directed in recent years has been substantially above average (Gone Baby Gone, The Town).

Personally I'm looking forward to Argo.

I respect him for being in Kevin Smith's little movies, even doing the commentaries even during those couple years when he was a big star. Matt Damon too. I respect loyalty to friends, especially in Hollywood.

My wife and I very rarely see movies in the theatre, even more so because we have a small child and refuse to be "those people".

That said, when the trailer for Argo came on before TDKR, we both said, "We're going to see that."

Here's a list of Ben Affleck's "good" movies:

The Town
Jersey Girl (polarizing, I know, but people like it)
Daredevil (director's cut, and if you overlook the dated bullet time and wirework, still good)
Sum of All Fears
Changing Lanes
Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back
Boiler Room
Dogma
Shakespeare In Love
Armageddon
Good Will Hunting
and of course, Phantoms.

All in all, not a bad body of work.

Shakespeare In Love? Really? The most undeserved Best Picture award since Forrest Gump?

Chasing Amy and Mallrats were better Kevin Smith films than Jersey Girl, IMO. And no love for Dazed and Confused?

Affleck's role in Mallrats was limited at best. You really can't say Mallrats is a "Ben Affleck" picture. He's the tertiary bad guy outside of Michael Rooker and LaFours. As for Chasing Amy, that movie was great up until Holden's resolution that made no sense whatsoever and showed that Smith had no idea how to end the movie.

Another example of my issues of Kevin Smith's conflict resolution writing:

1) At the end of Clerks, Silent Bob resolves Dante's Veronica/Caitlyn issue by telling him that there's tons of women in the world, but only the special ones will bring you food at work.

2) In Clerks II, when Dante has decided that he's going to give everything up with Emma to be with Becky, how does Emma find out that Dante's a jerk? You guessed it - bringing him food at work.

I don't know if Smith intentionally did that, but he basically shot his concept from Clerks 1 right in the foot.

Ha, that's awesome.

One of my favourite movies of all time

I've got such great memories of my brother and I watching that movie at my grandparents house. They had a big screen TV back in the early 90's when almost no one had them. We'd stay up late and watch it, it was awesome. My brother and I now live about 9 hourse away, and my grandparents died in the late 90's/early 2000's :(
I still try to watch it every year around Christmas time, it brings me right back to my grandparents house, chilling with my bro as a kid.

I hate Paltrow because she is a pretentious, entitled Hollywood elitist. Has nothing to do with Coldplay, who, incidentally, I also like.

The Ben Affleck argument can also be used for people who dislike Coldplay, Nickleback, or Kid Rock. They aren't shoved down your throats like other things are, so why so polarizing to you?
 
2012-09-11 04:00:51 PM
I've always thought he comes across pretty likeable in interviews. This is still one of the funniest scenes I think he's ever done, Link, and I've never seen it mentioned in Affleck threads.

Yes, I did like this movie, and I'm not ashamed to admit it.

I had no idea about the Coldplay connection and some of my favorite movies star people I can't stand. But of the nominees in 1998, Saving Private Ryan should have won.

But Becky brought him to orgasm on food at work.

It's true that a special woman will bring you food at work, but only the best of women will screw you on the prep table AT work.

I don't know, the Lincoln movie is a Spielberg historical docu-drama with Daniel Day Lewis. If they throw in a twitching gimp it would be the perfect Oscar bait.

I guess I get that the Shakespeare in Love hatred comes from the fact that it was running against Saving Private Ryan and this is a guy site, but it has to be said that Shakespeare in Love was freaking brilliant. Though it took me a minute to remember Affleck was in it.

I don't get the Affleck hate, either, except that it's cool to pick on him, I guess. He's a hottie. Not my type at all, but I tend more for the nerdy types.

I don't hate a movie just because it won best picture over a superior film. Okay, Annie Hall but that' a given.
