Has Affleck taken the #2 spot in the list of top actor/directors working today (behind Clint Eastwood of course)? I’m beginning to think so…

What do your fellow Flickcharters have to say?

willhunting“Aren’t these pretty much the same movie? Either way, The A-Team was actually damn fun. Just turn off your brain and enjoy. I was afraid of how Rampage was going to do but I thought he did great. Every character, even the bad guys are enjoyable in some way. ”

Avenger7“The A-Team is what The Losers was trying to be but failed. The Hannibal character said it best with one line of dialogue, “Overkill is underrated” and in this case, it’s probably true.”

(From The A-Team vs. The Losers discussion)

What do your fellow Flickcharters have to say?

flickme“The Other Guys was a series of well executed scenes that didn’t coalesce into a whole time the way the transcendentally funny Anchorman did. That and Anchorman had a jazz flute scene, so its got that going for it, which is nice.”

(From The Other Guys vs. Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy discussion)

What do your fellow Flickcharters have to say?

admiralpiett“One is immensely loud and crowded, the other is so simple and even-keeled it would seem slow for a sitcom. Maybe this makes me an arthouse snob, but I’ll take the everyday-life humor of Cyrus over Mickey Rourke’s mangled accent and Scarlet Johannson’s dead eyes; Cyrus FTW.”

(From Iron Man 2 vs. Cyrus discussion)

I’m neither old enough nor white enough to feel like I can sufficiently enjoy a John Wayne movie. There will come a time in my life where I fit both of those categories more clearly but for now, I’ll just stick with Clint Eastwood, Lee Marvin and the like when I want to watch a western.
