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?
*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!
