He was the bomb in Phantoms, yo!

He's at his best when he's a douchebag. Dazed and Confused, Mallrats, Dogma and to a lesser extent, Chasing Amy. I never saw Good Will Hunting but I think he's was a douchebag in that too. He was kind of a dick in Armageddon as well. And he was a better live action Batman than anyone but Keaton.

I sort of liked him as Daredevil. But Colin Farrell stole the movie. Good casting there.

Applesauce.

ArkAngel: He was the bomb in Phantoms, yo!


That was the best Dean Koontz adaptation by far.

I liked his performance in Gone Girl. That role fit him like a glove.

Tender Bar needs to be way higher, Last Duel should do us all a favor and not be on the list (though he isn't terrible in it), and for the lulz, Deep Water should be #1 (just kidding, that movie is hilariously bad)

/Chasing Amy sucked.  Sorry 90's kids.

How far could she get, Subby?

BTW, casting Tammy Fae Bakker as Mimi's mom was genius.

Holy shiat, Voyage of the Mimi brings back memories from grade school.

Good thing they fixed the boat before Grandpa was forced to cannibalism.

Holy shiat, I read the list too fast.  Deep Water is actually on this list?  Good christ.

Tammy Faye

3rd time today I misspelled a name.

I remember watching 'Voyage of the Mimi' in middle school back in the late 90's.  It sucked.

"Greatest" performances?  Okay, I guess.  I have nothing against Affleck, but I have nothing for him, either.

No O'Bannion?

Gigli make the list?

Some of the performances on this list are genuinely terrible. But then again, the list isn't wrong.

Quien mas macho? Ben Affleck or Benito Afflecko?

Ben Affleck habla perfectamente español y nos dice cuál es su palabra y comida preferida

I remember the episode of Voyage Of The Mimi where the grandfather had severe hypothermia after the ship ran aground or something like that. Talk about scarred for life, lol.

I liked Jersey Girl. Yes, I said it. Yes, I'm the one person other than Kevin smith who seems to.

I didn't hate Reindeer Games despite having lots of reasons to.

His best film was Gone Baby Gone. I also like Armegeddon, but that was a popcorn movie.

Is Baffleck the only person to ever play both Superman and Batman?

I also like Jersey Girl.  Thought Carlin gave a great performance.
