    I’ve got to admit that to this day I still don’t think he’s a good actor, but he’s getting better. He is a GREAT director however, I like all three of his films so far, hope he’ll do even more!

      I think everyone will agree that he is a great director, but feelings about his acting are mixed. Looking forward what he will do next!

    Ben Affleck gets a ridiculous amount of hate and I don’t understand it! I think he’s a solid actor. Enjoyed a lot of his films from Dogma, Mallrats, Good Will Hunting and Boiler Room.

    I love that he’s excelling as a director more though. The Town, Gone Baby Gone and Argo are fantastic films and really hope there’s more like those from him.

    I actually think he is a better director than an actor. That being said he also seems to be a better actor in the films he directs.

      Well, since he is a better actor in the films he directs it does make you wonder…did he get the wrong type of roles before?

    Trouble is, whenever I see Ben Affleck’s name, I think of that little black kid in Role Models calling Paul Rudd, “Reindeer Games”.

    When Rudd protests that he’s not Ben Affleck, the comeback is priceless.

    “You white, then you Ben Affleck.”

    Good director though!

    That’s tough but I’m going with The Town. His worst is Daredevil by far!

      I forgot everything about Daredevil, so there might be a reason for that ;)
