Ben Affleck should win some kind of movie-critics-issued "Most Improved" award, in light of his notable performances in films such as State Of Play and The Town. That's not to say that his past cinematic misdemeanors should be forgotten; on the contrary, Affleck needs to remember his dismal work in turkeys like Phantoms, Daredevil, Gigli, and Surviving Christmas so he never devolves back into that funk again. We're actually doing the man a solid right now.
