BOMBS
THE NICE GUYS: Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling as buddy comedy guys may sound counterintuitive, but 90% on Rotten Tomatoes says the chemistry worked. And then an $11 mil opening says, “Who cares what you guys think?”

I like to get the good stuff out in the open right away, so here it is: The Nice Guys is one of the best films of 2016 so far. One of the most rewarding things about the film is the return of Russell Crowe as a legitimate Hollywood superstar. It is hard to forget his rise to stardom in the early 2000’s, but it seemed to fizzle after Cinderella Man, which I enjoyed quite a bit. He had a few good flicks thrown in the mix here and there, but he didn’t have that A-list quality to him. He has always been a powerful actor with great range and charisma, and this film shows off all of those qualities

The Nice Guys

One of the reasons this summer felt so grim for so long was because of the sheer number of good/great movies that didn’t quite break out. To wit, this Shane Black gem is everything we say we want the studios to release in the middle of the so-called blockbuster season. And yet it earned just $36 million off of a $50m budget. This richly sketched and uproariously funny comedic caper, which stars Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe as two would-be private investigators discovering political corruption in 1970’s Los Angeles, is one of the year’s best films.

Angourie Rice offers one of the year’s great “star is born” performances as Gosling’s (tragically) self-sufficient daughter. It’s a cinematic joy from beginning to end. The picture arrives on Blu-Ray and DVD (and cheap VOD) next Tuesday. If you’re one of the people who argue that films like this aren’t worth a trip to the theater, or maybe you spent your May “date night” seeing the mostly pretty darn good Captain America: Civil War (understandable), you can help make it right in a few days. Don’t wait for Netflix or HBO/Time Warner Inc. Give Warner Bros. your money or you can’t complain.

Although the team over at Screen Junkies insists the early 2000s don’t deserve our nostalgia in their latest honest trailer, they admit the Russell Crowe-led Gladiator was actually pretty awesome. Of course, there are some aspects of the film the YouTube channel couldn’t help but poke fun at, including the fact that its plot is eerily similar to that of a WWE showdown.

Cinematic Universes are quite the thing now. Thanks to Marvel and their expansive universe we have the DC Extended Universe, the Godzilla/King Kong Cinematic universe, and we have the Universal Monsters Cinematic Universe a.k.a. the UMCU, which began with the epic telling of Count Dracula’s origin in 2014’s Dracula Untold starring Luke Evans as the titular character.

Next year on June 9th, the UMCU gets its next installment with The Mummy reboot starring Tom Cruise and Sofia Boutella as the monster in the movie alongside Russell Crowe added as Dr. Henry Jekyll from the famous Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde story.

If you blinked, you missed it at theaters. Don’t make that mistake again.

Shane Black’s “The Nice Guys,” starring Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling, arrives Aug. 9 on Digital HD (Amazon, CinemaNow, Flixster, iTunes, Play Station, Vudu, Xbox and more) and on Aug. 23 in a Blu-ray Disc/DVD combo pack with a digital version of the movie. A standard definition DVD will also be available.

The seedy R-rated comedy/thriller, which deserved a much better box-office showing, provides twists and turns as a baby-faced private eye (Gosling) and a bone-breaking enforcer (Crowe) team to find a missing porn star and unravel a conspiracy.

For Black, who spent years developing the script, the trick of getting the $50 million budget was to make Gosling a co-star.
