"Nice Guys" movie trailer
« on: December 09, 2015, 08:27:31 PM »
  This is my kind of movie. Thus far for 2016, this is the first trailer I've seen that makes me want to make a point of seeing the movie.

  This is an over the top P.I. flick set in 1970's L.A....Funny crazy action, Mob, P.I. missing persons, what's not to like?
 
  It stars Russell Crowe as a "Ray Donovan" type character who teams up w/a hapless P.I. (Ryan Gosling), together they set out to find a missing girl who's also being hunted by the Mob...



In several ways, this movie reminds me of some of the Creative Writing that's been posted on WTA!

    Dangit! I'd forgotten about that story inspired by the "Guns of the 60s and 70s" thread that I'd started writing. I'm already knee-deep in a project as it is! I do not need this!  ;)

      Haha. DAMN!!!

      This is the most stoked I've been about anything.    Star Wars I'm going to see....but I won't be clawing at the door like this one.

       Reminds me of 48 hours.  :cool

      If any of you haven't seen "Kiss-Kiss, Bang-Bang", you should, it's excellent.

    I use the club scene with the pencil from RocknRolla in one of women's self defense classes. Love it. That dude reminds me of you in that scene slm.

      For the most part, Russell Crowe is underrated. Personally, I think he's an exceptional actor.

    Zombie thread has risen.

    The wife and I watched this flick last week. It was a great movie. They sell it just straight enough to make the corny funny violence hilarious.
