    In your opinion is Ben Affleck a better Director or Actor? Of course his directing credits include Gone Baby Gone, The Town, Argo and Live By Night and his acting credits include everything from serious films like Argo, Good Will Hunting and HollywoodLand to fluff like the Marvel films he’s in, romantic comedies like Forces of Nature and Bounce and true failures like Gigli, Man About Town, Jersey Girl and Daredevil.

    So in your opinion, is he a better actor or director?

    I think it is a pretty easy question to answer and that he is obviously a better director than he is an actor. I really wish he’d focus less on acting in batman movies and work more on Oscar-calibre films. He really proved himself as a director with The Town and Argo and it seems dumb to waste his time on Batman movies when he could keep making serious movies.

    He’s not as bad an actor as people make it sound like but better director by far. Casey on the other hand, is a phenomenal actor

    Better director by default. Flopping in the same year your brother is excelling (even on a rape accusation)? Tsk tsk.

    He’s not exceptionally talented at either craft. I rather watch him act under the direction of Fincher. Who understands how to utilize his blank presence.

    Argo, The Town and Gone Baby Gone, could easily be on a top 10 list of the years they were released, but you can’t really say the same about any of the films where he’s only been an actor, except Good Will Hunting and Shakespeare in Love 20 years ago, but…he brought nothing special to either film…so he’s a better Director. Easy answer.

    (Haven’t seen Live By Night, but I asume it’s just good. Not great. Not bad).

    Director, though I don’t find him terribly compelling on either end of the camera.
