The Evolution of Ben Affleck Movies
Ben Affleck just won an Academy Award for Best Picture. Can we pause for a moment and try to figure out how the hell that happened? Ten years ago did you walk out of Daredevil and think: “You know what? This guy is gonna make great cinema one day.” No, you did not. Even in Good Will Hunting, a critically acclaimed film, he was just Matt Damon’s annoying Bahhhhston friend. How did this guy become an elite director? Let’s try to figure it out.
The Sum Of All Fears (2002) via Eklecty City
The only memorable part of this movie was when the Nazis (?) nuke Baltimore. THE BOMB IS IN PLAY!
Gigli (2003) via My Movies International
Remember when this came out and everybody HATED it? Not a normal hate, it was as if Ben Affleck personally punched every American human (and puppy) in the face. Do you know why everyone hated it? It was because Gigli was just Ben Affleck’s way of rubbing it in everybody’s face that he was sleeping with Jennifer Lopez. It was Ben Affleck saying “I’m banging Jennifer Lopez, now give me ten dollars.”
Daredevil (2003) via My Movies International
When I first saw this movie I thought Hell’s Kitchen was a terrible, crime-ridden neighborhood in the Bronx. Turns out Hell’s Kitchen is a perfectly pleasant place full of delightful piano bars!
Surviving Christmas (2004) via My Movies International
Oh boy. I can’t … I don’t … Just, oh boy.
Hollywoodland (2006) via My Movies International
Does anybody remember this movie coming out? Did this movie come out? Is this a real movie?
He’s Just Not That Into You (2009) via TV Guide
Affleck plays a rough around the edges (but still down to earth) commitment-a-phobe. What artistic range! I’m surprised he didn’t win an Oscar for this.
The Town (2009) via Making Of
This movie can be summed up in Boston, machine guns and that “I like to have a good cry at the nail salon” line. I saw this trailer roughly 834,750 times in 2009.
Argo (2012) via Making Of
This movie was amazing. This was hands down the best movie of 2012. Remember Surviving Christmas? No?
Who is Ben Affleck? How can he make Argo and Surviving Christmas in the same ten year period? Is he trolling all of us? I heard that in real life Ben Affleck is just as douchey as his character in Mallrats. He must be trolling us. Well, either trolling us or he got paid millions of dollars to make all those terrible movies. Let me remind you that at the “low point” of Ben Affleck’s career all he did was lounge on expensive yachts and rub suntan lotion on JLO. Yeah, I think he was doing just fine.
