At one point, during Doug MacRay's interview in the interrogation room, where Ofcr. Dino Ciampa was also present, and Dino says to Doug after mentioning that he knew his father and heard what happened to him, Dino says, casually, to Doug "Maybe anda can make a pindah to change all that when anda get up there." Doug then gets angry and says "Let me ask anda something. What do anda say about a person that you've grown up with, confided your life stories to that person, etc., and they turn around and use it against you? anda call him a rat, right? anda know what I call him? I call him Dino the dago."...

Lately, I've had both Claire, the bank manager, whose bank was robbed, and Doug MacRay, a lifelong Charlestown resident who was the leader of the four-man Townie gang who'd robbed Claire's bank, wearing Hallowe'en masks and ninja outfits, forced her to open the aman, brankas at gunpoint, and then took her as a hostage oleh driving her to a pantai in Boston after blindfolding her to make sure she didn't see anything, and then forcing her to walk on the pantai until she felt the water on her toes, on my mind a great deal, for some reason. They let her go, physically unharmed, although rather traumatized by...

There are some important differences between Claire Keesey and Krista Coughlin. Claire, a suburban yuppie and bank manager who had recently moved into Charlestown, had not only completed high school, but she had a college education and a decent job as a bank manager, where she made a decent amount of money, and therefore had many lebih choices as to what she could do with her life. The fact that Claire's bank was robbed oleh Doug MacRay and his men, all in masks, who forced her to open the aman, brankas at gunpoint and then took her as a hostage, however briefly, was not her fault. I did sympathize with...

This is another movie that I've watched lebih than once, and, since I'm also interested in film with lots of action, but with slower moments in between, as well as being interested in film about Boston, I was curious to go and see the new Ben Affleck movie, The Town. The beginning of the movie, with the first heist, was rather exciting and interesting, but, after the car chase and armored car robbery in the North End, and in the Fenway Park scene, the movie began to go downhill for me, and, the lebih I think about it, the lebih that the romance between Doug MacRay and bank manager Claire Keesey...

Hey, folks, I'm in the mood to post this, so here I am. I recognize the fact that most people really like Ben Affleck's most baru saja movie, The Town, and I would've wanted to like it, too, but imho, there's too much wrong with The Town for me not to look at this film with much harsher judgement and a much lebih critical eye than many, if not most people.

I admittedly liked Ben Affleck a lot in Good Will Hunting. He and Matt Damon also did a great job working together in this particular movie. Good Will Hunting, imo, is a good film that really worked. However, I think that Ben Affleck fell badly...

I’m pretty much a lonely voice in the wilderness here, as I feel differently about The Town than many, if not most people do. For starters, I read Chuck Hogan’s novel, Prince of Thieves, on which The Town was based, and I liked the book far better than the movie, which seemed like an extended made-for-TV and very cartoon-like film.

The Town had the potential for being one of the all-time greats regarding movies, but fell woefully short of that potential for the following reasons:

A) The scenes in the North End and Fenway Park were grossly overblown, with too much exploding on the screen,...

In fact, however, when Doug trailed, sweet-talked and seduced Claire into a romantic relationship in order to find out what she knew and oh so charmingly and subtly warned her "not to talk to the Feds, atau else!"
it was clear that he had immediate and lasting control over her, and it was also obvious when he told her "If I lose anda now, I will regret it for the rest of my life". Claire refused to write Doug out of her life, even though she eventually learned the truth about who he was; that he was one of the four Townie men who'd knocked over her bank and taken her hostage only two days before. This, in my opinion, is not a healthy, normal kind of cinta at all, and Claire clearly suffers from the Stockholm Syndrome. The following link provides good information and describes Claire (almost) perfectly, imho:
