Wow ... it has been a while since I have been to the movies! But we went to The Town last night and I really liked it. This movie was written and directed by Ben Affleck and is about a group of bank/armored car robbers in the Charlestown neighborhood of Boston.

As a heist film, it wasn't particularly innovative (nor as a love story), but somehow,the whole added up to more than the sum of its parts. Affleck and Jeremy Renner were pretty mesmerizing on screen and the atmosphere was engrossing. Jon Hamm has a nice turn as an FBI agent and Blake Lively plays a very un-Gossip Girl role that was pretty decent.

Overall, I'd give it a solid B+ (and I hope Affleck keeps directing because I think he has some potential to grow to a pretty great director!)
