Can We Talk About Ben Affleck For A Sec?

Ok, so we are all familiar with Ben Affleck, right? Ok, so Jon and I watched The Town on Friday night and we both really enjoyed it. But the thing is I was really surprised that I liked a Ben Affleck movie so much. Why? I don't really know-I guess I don't really hear a lot of priase for Ben Affleck. (I wrote this pre golden globes)I don't know why but for some reason I feel like I hear about people not taking him seriously. Is this a thing? Am I confusing him with someone else? I mean, he is an oscar winner...so I don't know why I would think people/me don't think of him as a talented guy...could it be the ghost of Bennifer past? Could the stain of Gigli really permeate my memory of Ben Affleck so strongly?

Hmm, I'm not quite sure. But all that being said I totally recommend The Town (AND Gone Baby Gone for that matter since we're on the subject) and am intrigued by Argo...has anyone seen it? Has anyone else seen either movie?

*update: I'm glad to see that Mr. Affleck's work on Argo was appreciated. Based on the comments I think I should go see it!

Argo is my favorite. I thought it was such a well done movie. I think he is great.

Argo was super good! Bummer he was snubbed by the Oscars -- but so cool he won big last night! :)

I've now seen all three of the movies he directed and have loved them all. He's just so good and definitely glad that his work as a director is being recognized (except by the Academy, ha).
