    "One again, this problem is a bit broad, and asking for plural not singular, however it seems to be a good pick. It is not one that I would consider my favorite Ben Affleck movies, however and have not seen anything more then the trailer myself, but judging by the almost 2500 reviews with a 4.5 star rating it appears to be well liked by others."

    "Ben Affleck has evolved from a guy who made an Oscar movie about a bad boy Boston guy who is a genius to a continually good actor and director. Ben Affleck has an accomplished list of movies and acting roles that would be the envy of any actor/director. Shakespeare in Love is another movie that you must see if you love Ben Affleck."

    "One of the Michael Bay masterpieces... Okay, it's difficult to decide if that is a good or a bad thing, but Armageddon is one of the most epic disaster movies you are able to see nowadays. Excessive, inspiring and incredibly exciting. Also, Bruce Willis leads the cast. a very good movie"

    "I'm a huge fan of Ben Affleck movies. I've probably seen almost every one, but there is one that is the absolute best. Gone Baby Gone is a fantastic debut and Casey Affleck is fantastic in it too. By far Gone Baby Gone is the best Ben Affleck movie."

    "Dawn of Justice was a decent movie. Ben Affleck was very good in this, but he was the bomb in Phantoms yo. Superman and Wonderwoman are both let downs. If it weren't for Affleck this movie would have been unwatchable really."
