You're right this is a discussion for another thread, but I find that Affleck writes great dialogue judging from his work on Good Will Hunting, to Gone Baby Gone and the Town. His dialogue is leagues ahead of what Goyer is capable of in my opinion. I think Goyer's strength's lies in respect for the source material and generating good ideas and cohesive plot lines.
