Thought it was a pretty good movie. Laughed at casting Ben Affleck as Phil. Doubt a guy wearing neon and teal running tights would be throwing around that many "F Bombs" though.

Would have been nice if Nike would have gone tits up and/or gotten swallowed up by Converse, so didn't care for the ending.

Just wondering how many of the board quooks here have jerked off to this.

    Did it tell the story of him cheating on his first wife?

    It was a decent movie. Not bad, not fantastic. Decent.

    Damon put on a solid performance but Sonny Vaccaro was an Italian tornado. More like a younger Joe Pesci or Steven Buschimi-style.

    Inserting the Raveling portion was forced. Raveling was coaching at Iowa when Jordan came out of college not working for Nike.

    Viola Davis was outstanding.

    It gets about a 6 out of 10 Throbbers.

    I'm hoping you would find that a reason to admire Knight, and not the other way around.

    Frankly, I am laughing at pretty much any casting of Ben Affleck. Always an overrated actor, and the guy is now a walking disaster. His whole "recovering drunk" routine is so banal at this point. His drunk basketball coach or whatever he was to redemption movie was so obviously his schtick that I hated it and I didn't even see it. He was good in the Town because he was playing himself with a little more made-up tuffness. They don't have tuff kids at Cambridge Rindge and Latin School. Not like Aberdeen. At. All.

    Affleck in the Accountant was by far his best effort

    And his big role in Dazed and Confused

    Other than that he can't act

    That plus the whole thing with him washing out of being a top pick for the Bruins...just wasn't needed. But still, the Town and the Departed are must watch every year for St. Patrick's Day.

    Haven't seen it. It must be good if it survived him in the lead role. I'll give it a try.

    Affleck needs to stick to non super hero action movies. That's more his thing.

    He was legitimately good in Good Will Hunting. Also a decent job in The Town. Haven’t seen The Accountant. Haven’t seen Dazed in probably 20 years.

    Also good in The Last Duel.

    Dazed holds up except for the terrible child actors.

    Movie was okay but odd it was made. I legit wonder if Nike/Phil put in a lot of funding for the advertising because who was asking for this movie?

    For whatever reason the Hollywood script world loves these like behind the scenes true life biopic movies but they don't exactly kill it at the box office, so it's strange.

    Last Dance covered it quite well regarding MJ

    Winning Time revealed that Nike offered Magic Johnson a piece of the company that would be worth over a billion. He took 100 grand from Converse

    I don't count Good Will because that was break-out role and by definition had to be decent. But even in that, his isn't the memorable character, both because of script and because of him. I think he overacts the Boston white trash thing a little, which is his bread and butter. I've spent a ton of time in Boston - you really don't run into people who talk quite like that all that often. Damon is the better actor of the two and of course was Good Will Hunting along with Robin Williams.
