I'm sure I've only enjoyed him in Chasing Amy and Dogma...and that's probably a by-product of enjoying Kevin Smith.
But wasnt Jersey Girl also a Kevin Smith film? So you should like that as well !

I do like Chasing Amy and Dogma, but Clerks will always be my go to Kevin Smith film which is probably because I havent matured since it came out :)

I was a Ben basher for a long time but I have seen a few good films of his recently. I really enjoyed The Town and Gone Girl. Argo and Triple Frontier were both good, and The Company Men was OK

I'm not a Ben Basher...just generally indifferent. I'm not sure I even notice him. 😏 He's like a boiled egg without salt...bland. I didn't like Argo...I liked Dazed and Confused but can't remember him in it; ditto Hollywoodland. Honestly, I think my TV must blur him out. 😄
Affleck was the bomb in Phantoms.
Oh was he in it?...Yo or otherwise? (I don't think I've seen it).

Thought he was great in Buffy as Basketball Player #10 (uncredited) :)

The Golden Compass (2007).

Starring Dakota Blue Richards. Don't let the cover fool you, Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig don't get much time on screen.

This film really needed an extra 30-45 minutes to develop the characters and more deeply explain the background of the fantasy world it is set in.

5/10.

Wrong Turn (2003) 6.5/10
Solid enough horror with a couple of nice twists and some good kills. Of course I like Eliza, but Jeremy Sisto steals the film.

@Buffy Summers Yeah I know. Going to work my way through the franchise. Gotta tick off those boxes :D

The Woman In The Window - 6.5/10
Not as good as I was expecting it to be, it takes a decent twenty to thirty minutes to really get going, but it had a couple of nicely done reveals and Amy Adams is always solid.

The Misadventures of Mistress Maneater 8.5/10

Unique and unusual indie rom-com. The plot is totally ridiculous and the humor is morbid, but I had so much fun watching it. Let's put it this way: A genius Dominatrix, an Orthodox Priest and the Russian mob ;) walk into the scene.

I was interested in it for the first half (mostly because of Amy Adams), but it gets too silly and messy in the second half. The twists didn't do much for me. It ends up feeling like a very standard Hitchcock rip-off. Gary Oldman's hammy performance is the only other thing that makes it worth watching.

Yeah I called the twists really early. Wasn't much else to hold interest.

Knight Of Cups (2015).

Starring Christian Bale.

5/10.

Beautiful locations, beautiful people, beautiful cinematography. But the film has a deliberately unfocused and dreamlike style that just didn't work that well for me.

Wolf Creek 2 - 6.5/10
For a horror sequel this was really solid, enjoyed some of the black comedy. But it lost the edge and tension of the original, and fell into the torture porn trap at times.

The Florida Project (2017) - It was good, but it was too shiny, too bright, everyone's teeth were perfectly white, these people weren't poor enough for a British viewer, but great performances, especially the kids 8/10

Never really noticed it being too shiny, but great performances - loved it

A zombie virus hits only children . A bunch of teachers have to survive the carnage in this horror comedy . Utterly ridonkulous cast : everyone already famous for something or other :p . Superb pedigree and a strong premise . Yet it doesn't really deliver . It's just a 'meh' film . They don't really exploit the horror or comedy of having to fight zombie children until the last 15 minutes . Meh .

I Think We're Alone Now (2018).

Starring Peter Dinklage and Elle Fanning.

5/10.

Some interesting ideas and scenes in this film but the director and the writer seemed unsure of what they were going for.
