Favorite Ben Affleck Movies
Ben Affleck is one of Hollywood’s best known leading men. He enjoyed some amazing popularity in the 90s as a pop culture phenomenon. True fans know that Ben has only gotten better with age. Some of my favorite Ben Affleck movies don’t even come from the 90s, but are his latest work that really showcase his skills as an actor.
Too often movie reviews of my favorite Ben Affleck movies focus too much on all the little things. If you pick apart any movie it is easy to find flaws. As a fan of Ben, though, I like to just sit back and enjoy the movie. That is probably why my movie reviews are so positive. I am not looking for fault. I am just basking in the amazing talents of this wonderful actor.
A few of my favorite Ben Affleck movies are from his early career. I mean, most people agree that Good Will Hunting is a classic movie. It is no surprise that Ben won an Academy award for that one. Another of his hits that really touched me was Armageddon. That was a tear-jerker and no matter how many times I watch it I am crying like a baby by the end.
However, in recent years, Ben hasn’t slowed down. Some of my favorite Ben Affleck movies of this decade include the legendary film, Pearl Harbor and the movie that showed off a whole other side of the actor, Daredevil. Ben was quoted as saying Daredevil was his favorite childhood superhero and that he took the role because it was important to him that the character was portrayed correctly.
My list of favorite Ben Affleck movies would not be complete without his latest works. I absolutely loved is bounty hunter role in Smokin’ aces. Romantic comedies have not always been good to Ben, but he hit a home run with He’s Just Not That Into You. That movie was box office gold. Ben teamed up with a hot cast to make a movie that had women rushing to the box office. It was a nice perk for Ben’s career, which had been a little lacking.
The only thing that makes headlines more often than Ben’s amazing acting talent are his relationships. Poor Ben has had to deal with some incredible snooping into his personal life. I think we all remember Bennifer. Thankfully, now he is happily married to Jennifer Garner with two beautiful baby girls.
Ben is not all about movies and relationship, though, he also has a humanitarian side that many people may not be aware. He has shown support for Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays, has supported those against stricter gun control and has shown major respect for former president, George W. Bush. Those are some things not everyone knows about this guy. He is more than an actor. He is a dad, a husband and an advocate. He stands up for what he believes in on and off screen, which is why I am one of his fans.
