Anybody checking for this? I saw a trailer for it when I went to Inception last night and it looks like it could be good. I thought Affleck hit it out of the park with Gone Baby Gone as a director, and I'm really digging the whole Boston crime drama thing he's got going. It also stars Jeremy Renner from The Hurt Locker and Slaine of all people (who also was in Gone Baby Gone). Check the trailer, looks dope. Slaine 53 seconds in.

I'm more exited about Jon Hamm then anyone else. I pretty much try to live my life like the Donald Draper character would. He's a refined upper class man who still thinks with his penis and I respect that like hell.

I recently saw previews for The Town and it looks good. I'm gonna check it out. It comes out September 17th. Ben Affleck can do good action flicks. He hasn't done that many of them but i liked him in Reindeer Games with Charlize Theron, Gary Sinise, Clarence Williams III. I know he was happy to have some love scenes with Charlize hahahahahahahahaha. Another good Boston crime flick is What Doesn't Kill You with Ethan Hawke, Mark Ruffalo, Amanda Peet. It's a straight to video flick but it's really good. Ethan is a good actor and i was very disappointed in his straight to video crime flick Staten Island with Vincent D'Onoforio who played on Law And Order:Criminal Intent tv show. It was very boring and no action at all.

I don't know if Ben Affleck is the director. He did a good job directing Gone Baby Gone with his brother Casey, Morgan Freeman, Michelle Monaghan(this girl is hot).

Yeah he's the director. Slaine was in Gone Baby Gone as well. I wonder if they grew up together or what?

Going to see it either tonight or tomorrow. It's got a 92% on Rotten Tomatoes. Most people say it's as good if not better than Gone Baby Gone. I'M HYPED!

Those are nice pictures of Lindsay Lohan in your sig. I think she's cute but she got too many freckles on her body. She got a nice body. I got a picture of her on my bedroom wall sitting in a chair with her legs crossed.

I see The Town made $23.5 million it's first week. It was #1 at the box office.

I saw it and thought it was great. Rate it 4 out of 5 for an action movie.

Most action movies suck now a days, but this was done exceptionally well for a bank robbery movie. I thought prior that it was gonna blow and come off with cheesy attempts to capture Boston accents, yet the accents were on point. I used to live only a couple hours from Boston and the director did a good job at capturing the miserable, bitter, overcast weather and coldness with the proper lens/filters.

Movie also had a few funny moments when you least expected it. Definitely one of Affleck's better movies in the recent years. You gotta see it in the theater or else the AR-15 gun shots won't vibrate your chest with a home theater.

saw this and its a really good flick.
it isnt heat or anything, but affleck did a great job with the shootouts in this movie.

when one certain character gets shot up, it looked pretty damn realistic.

ben's got 2 pretty good crime flicks under his belt now. curious to see what he directs next.

I saw it last weekend and i liked it. I fell asleep on some of it but i'm gonna watch it again when it comes to video. Who are those 2 hot girls Blake Lively and Rebecca Hall that were Ben's girlfriends? I've never seen them before. Rebecca looks kinda familiar.

* SPOILERS. I think they made a mistake in the Extended Cut. She asks him were his parents live on 2 different occasions.

I thought it was lame that he started doing drugs like a cry-baby when things went downhill. Weak scene.
Great flick though, I expected more romance because of the trailer so I was glad to see the outcome.

Seeing this makes me want to see Gone Baby Gone. Didn't know he was a director too.

Ill flick, one thing I didn't get though was near the end ***Spoiler*** how did the cops know they were at the stadium? Surely all the cops got from Affleck's ex was that there was a job going down. I didn't think she knew about the location?
