Ben Affleck will be playing the Goddamn Batman in Superman vs Batman. PLEASE NO

Ben Affleck has had his moments of brilliance— with Matt Damon in Good Will Hunting, he’s done a great job directing movies like Argo, but holy fuck he would be one of the last people I would cast as Batman. When I think of him as Batman, I think of him doing the sleazy date rapist persona he had in Mallrats. Christian Bale wasn’t great, and people jeered the choice of Michael Keaton in the 1989 Batman movie at first, and he turned out to be the best, but I’ve seen enough Affleck to get a really bad feeling about this. Prove me wrong.

IHC movie reviews: The Town

Opening this weekend was The Town, which represents Ben Affleck’s second foray into feature-length film directing after Gone Baby Gone from 2007 and his third go-round at writing a feature length screenplay (Good Will Hunting and Gone Baby Gone before that) and the result is an impressive, high-intensity, high action cops and robbers movie that ends up being something well worth seeing. By the end, the movie seems to run a little long, but it’s very well directed with an amazing A-list ensemble cast.
