The '09 Duo is Back: Kid Cudi & Kanye West's 'KIDS SEE GHOSTS'
It is time to address the fact that the baby Affleck, Casey Affleck, has not been shown as much love as he deserves over the years. This may be a side effect of the younger sibling syndrome. One is diagnosed with this when they are overshadowed by an older sibling. But, it’s time that ends (sorry not sorry, Ben), and the first step to curing lil’ Casey is remembering some of his best work.
There are so many reasons to watch this film (especially if you live in Boston and can visit a lot of the shooting locations), and young, mouthy Casey is one of them. Yes, Ben is also in it, but that doesn’t stop Casey from shining. His character, Morgan, gets ragged on plenty, but is feisty enough to take it, which gives us amazing scenes such as the sandwich layaway. My boy may not be “wicked smart” in this movie, but he is wicked funny.
This may not be a top pick for most Casey viewing parties, but it has the added bonus of Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Matt Damon, and Scott Caan. No complaints there. Casey works as part of a comedic duo as one of the Malloy brothers, and the good news is that if you can’t get enough of it in this film, you can help yourself to two more servings of it in the other installments of the trilogy.
“Ocean’s 8” Makes for a Satisfying, if Not Entirely Surprising, Heist Movie
Movie Review: “Deadpool 2” is a Garrulous, Charismatic Sequel
In general, this film is not talked about enough. Not only was the animation work done on it incredible, but it touched on subjects that animated family films haven’t really seen before. One of those subjects is the fact that Mitch, a muscular and handsome jock voiced by our lovable Casey, is gay. Having characters of all different genders and sexual orientations is important for younger audiences to see more often because it is normal. We were lucky enough to have a film like this take a step in that direction, while also hearing it through the vocal cords of baby Affleck.
The book was better (obviously), but Casey’s performance makes for a strong case in favor of him being in more film adaptations of crime/mystery novels. Even though the film was directed by Ben Affleck, nobody cares because Casey is the star on this one (how ya like them apples, Benjamin?). Not only is this questionably peak attractiveness for lil’ Casey, but we also get to see him as a tough detective who isn’t afraid of a bar fight. Yes please!
Remember when I said Casey had questionably already reached his peak attractiveness? Scratch that, because he is aging like fine wine (aside from the post-movie beard he now has going on). Aside from his good looks, what this film also showcases is, without a doubt, the greatest performance Casey Affleck has ever done. Not only does he give us all the things we previously loved on his characters, such as a Boston accent, bar fights, and a smart mouth, but we get to see a more vulnerable, broken man as well. Casey’s acting will punch you in the heart, so get to a theater if you haven’t experienced that yet.
And lil baby Casey in a really good place to win an Academy Award for Best Actor (which Ben has never gotten), now is a good time to appreciate some of the best he has given us thus far. Thank you Casey Affleck, we appreciate you just as much as Ben (maybe even more, for some of us).
