Highly Suspect Reviews: The Nice Guys

In certain circles of the film world, it is cause for great celebration when a new film written and/or directed by Shane Black is released. A sort of Christmas, if you will 😉 

Christmas has come for this film circle. The Nice Guys takes place in the 70s in Los Angeles with Ryan Gosling as a widowed father, alcoholic, and incompetent private eye who ends up falling backwards into working with paid enforcer Russell Crowe to find a missing girl named Amelia. How this ties into an art porno film, the Detroit car industry, and Hannibal Buress as a giant talking bee is something that will be your pleasure to discover, hopefully. Our feelings about this film aren’t shared across the board, but hopefully (from the viewpoint of those of us who DID really like it) our discussion, featuring Chris, Beau, Herman, and Sarah can lead you in the right direction.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
