A Night in The Town

Justin:  Like I previously mentioned in another post, we really wanted to see Ben Affleck's new film, The Town.  Here's the imdb synopsis:
Welcome to the bank robbery capital of America. 
As he plans his next job, a longtime thief tries to balance his feelings for a bank manager connected to one of his earlier heists, as well as the FBI agent looking to bring him and his crew down
We both really dug the movie.  I think I liked it more than Nic though, as I'm down for multiple viewings and she's more of a one time viewer.  It's good to see Affleck grow as a director and I'm looking forward to his future efforts.  It had a good balance of action and drama and was really well paced.  Jeremy Renner was the shit.  The "Nun Mask" heist was really fun to watch.  Any thoughts Nic?

Nicole: Like you said, I'm generally a one time viewer.  I am really glad I saw it, but probably wont watch it again.  I don't really think the trailer portrayed it for what it was though.

I'm not really the best movie reviewer as I don't watch that many movies, as Justin has pointed out, but I did enjoy the action.
 Good times at the movies.  We'll see ya next week!

  1. Now, I'm just a random person that's never met either of you before. I've never slept in your living room, partied all night long, or had dreams of how our babies will look - I'm just a stranger! Haven't seen The Town yet. The commercials weren't making it look too appealing. Anything you can tell me about the plot that would better explain it but not give it away?
