    The Town

    Went to this flick last night; it was really good. Iíve been disappointed the last few times I've gone to a movie in the theater, so this was a nice change of pace.
    I'm guessing Affleck gets an Oscar nod for best picture, maybe director. Renner will more than likely be up for best supporting actor.
    Old Benny boy is making a name for himself directing. Good follow up to Gone Baby Gone.

    That good, huh? This one was kind of flying under my radar, but might have to push to go see this some night.

    Not the greatest movie ever, by any means, but well worth going to see in the theater. Very entertaining and some very good performances.
    The story is predictable, and they haven't hidden that in the marketing. Just well done, I thought.

    We're going to see The Town tomorrow, looking forward to it. If you like action movies go see The Takers. High energy and intense from start to finish, very well done.

    Would you consider it to be on par with Gone Baby Gone, or at least in the same neighborhood?

    Gone Baby Gone is one of those movies that I can't help but watch whenever it comes on, much like Man on Fire.

    Far better I thought. You get the real Affleck.
    There's some crossover between the two, as well, as far as actors from GBG are in The Town, not the same characters. Great locations and visuals, too. Renner himself puts it well beyond GBG.
