‘Argo’ is the best movie of 2012

Rotten Tomatoes has released the list of the best reviewed movies of 2012, and ‘Argo’ was number 1. Actually ‘Argo’ was number 26, but the 25 movies in front of it are all documentaries and foreign movies, and that bullshit doesn’t count. Critics just say they liked those to trick you into thinking they’re smart.

I haven’t seen any of the documentaries on the list because they’re probably depressing. Also, if I wanted to learn something, I wouldn’t be at a fucking movie theater. I’ve never even heard of most of these foreign movies, and since Europe has a statue of a naked man like every 15 feet, I’m in no real hurry to research them.

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are a glamorous couple

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner drove their $100,000 Tesla Model S to get 2 dozen donuts from Krispy Kreme in Santa Monica today, and braved the rain to do it, so I assume they were stoned off their ass. That’s the only time 24 donuts from Krispy Kreme sounds like a good idea.

Not only that, but on her way out, Garner signed a petition to murder Girl Scouts. You heard it here first: Jennifer Garner is a violent drug addict!

Ben Affleck asked to direct the Justice League movie

DC comics and Warner Bros. have been trying to get a ‘Justice League’ movie made for at least a decade, and in 2007 they even had the thing cast, but that all went to hell and now ‘The Avengers’ has made $1.46 billion for Marvel and Disney. Needless to say they’re freaking the fuck out.

Christopher Nolan already turned them down, but luckily for them Ben Affleck hasn’t, and he’s actually a really good director. Variety says…

Affleck is the only candidate who’s been sent Will Beall’s JUSTICE LEAGUE script, which the GANGSTER SQUAD scribe was hired to write last summer.
DC Comics’ answer to Marvel’s Avengers, JUSTICE LEAGUE is expected to bring together marquee characters Batman and Superman, as well as Green Lantern, Wonder Woman and The Flash.
Affleck has made it clear that he’s only interested in directing films in which he also stars so its likely that if this pairing ever came to fruition, he would don a suit of his own.

This probably means he would play Batman, because that’s the one that was easiest for me to think of just now and you haven’t had time to second guess it. So he’ll be playing Batman, or “tha Dahhk Knight” according to his Boston accent. Also everyone in the Justice League is useless compared to Superman and Batman. If I call the Super Friends for help and they send Wonder Woman, it better be because I’m having a bikini car wash.

Ben Affleck is patriotic

Just like they do every year, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner brought their daughters to a 4th of July parade yesterday, and I can’t believe it but this one was in Pacific Palisades. It totally looks like a Boston parade. Where you’d hear Dropkick Murphys ‘The State Of Massachusetts’ at least 10 times, and at one point the guy in the Red Sox cap in front of Ben would lean in and say, “I swear to fahkin Gahd B, if that fahkin dahkie looks at me one more time Ima throw him a fahkin beatin.”

Matt Damon and Ben Affleck are making another movie

For the fist time since ‘Good Will Hunting’ (no one counts ‘Dogma’ for some reason) Matt Damon and Ben Affleck are starring in a movie together.

Damon will star as Boston mobster Whitely Bulgar, with Affleck co-starring and directing. Though they won’t write the script (which of course is what they won their Oscars for in 1997), they have a more than capable replacement in ‘Boardwalk Empire’ creator and writer Terence Winter.

You may remember that Bulgar was also the inspiration for the Jack Nicholson character in ‘the Departed’ (a mobster allowed to run wild because he was an FBI informant), so this will be like that except probably not as good. Needless to say you probably won’t see that quote on the poster.

Ben Affleck looks like this now

At first I wondered why Keanu Reeves was pretending to be Anthony Kiedis and taking Ben Afflecks daughters to the farmers market in Pacific Palisades yesterday, but then I eventually figured it out.
