Kevin Smith loves Gone

07.12.2007
I know it's not exactly the most ethical thing to do, but Kevin Smith has written the first mini-review of Ben Affleck's directorial debut GONE, BABY, GONE. Sure, we know the two are crazy friendly and probably shoot the shit all the time, but if Kevin Smith does anything, I'd like to think it's tell it how it is. I could be naive but I honestly believe if he saw GONE and thought it was a piece of shit, he'd say exactly that. Fortunately, he didn't:

ďIíve seen the flick twice and itís awesome. Total awards contender... Itís one of those movies where you watch and youíre like [groan] First time out? He made a better movie than Iíve ever made. That jerk! And heís easier to look at, richer, I hate him so much! But itís a really great flick.Ē

This is great. I'm an Affleckian (as opposed to a Damonite), I think the guy is cool so I hope everything he does is golden. I even thought that GIGLI was underrated. Although that was only because it was rated in artistic circles as 'piss poor'. GONE, BABY, GONE tells the story of two detectives who are in search of a 4 year old girl that has been kidnapped in Boston.

Affleck = okay

I personally like Casey more than Ben. Ben Affleck has gotten full of himself and he does do shit like surviving christmas. He does good movies too like Jersey Girl, Hollywoodland and in Smokin Aces, but he died and that's like the one movie i wanted more Affleck in.

I think Smith's reveiew would be affected by his friendship with Affleck, but either way i hope its a good movie.

I agree

Affleck isn't really that bad. That guy gets more crap than almost any Hollywood star. Although I can't say I've seen Pearl Harbor or Gigli. But Reindeer Games and Changing Lanes are both pretty good. And he is pretty funny in Mr. Smith's movies as well.

Affleck aint the worst

He just got big-headed. Now he's humble as a Smurf. Lets see what the kid got.

But unless Kevin Smith is sitting in on Ebert & Roeper, he's not worthy or print. so i'll stop right there...

I'd say Affleck's underrated pieces are Reindeer Games, Changing Lanes, and Jersey Girl, and that Gigli is the only one deserving to remain in the can.

I just like to say it like the duck does

I'm not partial to either one of them. But then again, I thought GOOD WILL HUNTING was an average at best flick with a good performance by Williams. Personally, their Oscars were like all of the other ones given out at that ceremony: politically motivated so that we can constantly hear people talk about how those two young guys from Boston wrote a script and became all famous.

Just another piece of trivia tidbit fodder. Nothing more, nothing less.

Don't forget...

...Kevin Smith was also the one that raved about Episode 3 so much you would have thought he had his head buried up Lucas' ass up to his shoulders.

It might be good

Remember Affleck did get an academy award for being one half of the screenwriting team that brought us Good Will Hunting. That was a really good movie any way you look at it. Just because he has no range as an actor does not mean he is an idiot or incompetent as an artist overall. I have seen him on Politically Incorrect and he is actually an intelligent and articulate guy. I blame J-Lo for the whole Gigli fiasco.

Gigli!

I'm with you James - GIGLI was highly underrated, especially as a drinking movie!

I'm looking forward to the movie ALTHOUGH it's by Mr Affleck. Don't care about anything Kevin Smith says though, didn't like any movie by him. Pretty overrated.
