The List: Ashley’s Favorite Ben Affleck Movies

Last month it was revealed that our favorite Boston boy will soon be moving into Wayne Manor. Don’t worry, this post is not a list of reasons why Affleck will make a great Batman. In fact, I will agree that Affleck seems to be more successful at writing and directing than he is at acting (see numerous nominations and wins).

Truly, I had such a great time with these stories, and they really are
good “clean” fun — and who of us can’t use some of that these days.
So put on a pot of chili, curl up in your Snuggie, and let Philip
Wyndham keep you warm!
