There was a famous New Yorker cartoon called The Critic, a stage-eye-view of the audience laughing their butts off at something, and a glowering man sitting front row centre. It’s a vibe not confined to critics, but to all the participants of awards season – a.k.a. the season for serious movies. And while I applaud […]

Awards season is upon us, and the Peach State’s film critics have named their favorite movies and performances from 2016. The Georgia Film Critics Association has handed out awards in categories much like the Oscars since it was founded in 2011 by CAmeron McAllister, marketing director for the Atlanta Film Society. The organization, which includes […]

2. THE NICE GUYS This was the best original film released this year that unfortunately many didn’t see.

I’m not normally an advocate for sequels, but I would gladly see another film featuring […]

Funniest chemistry Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling in “The Nice Guys,” Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn in “Bad Moms” (particularly in the scene in which Bell imitates a male body part, which really should win her some sort of Oscar), Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele in “Keanu.” For the full list click HERE

Think “48 Hrs.” meets “Lethal Weapon” but wittier and full of polyester, “porn ‘staches” and bad wallpaper, with a funky soundtrack. It’s […]

The Nice Guys Shane Black’s buddy comedy was supposed to be the movie that saved studios from their worst instincts: a wholly original idea, with the backing of major stars (Ryan Gosling, Russell Crowe), a decent budget, and no franchise expectations. Instead, this delightfully coarse caper barely earned $36-million at the box office, and will […]

Pick of the year The Nice Guys, Shane Black’s homage to Raymond Chandler’s Los Angeles, is a terrific comedy thriller. Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling play pratfalling private eyes on the trail of a missing porn actress back in the sleazeball Seventies. Gosling is the star of The Big Short, too, which, though it explains […]

Coming from the same writer as the original Lethal Weapon movie, one has to wonder if that same magic has been captured again in this recent “buddy movie”? Now that The Nice Guys is about to drop on DVD & Blu Ray release, it is time to revisit this movie to see if it’s worth […]
