The Nice Guys Review

Very Good

Writer-director Shane Black returns to the comedy-noir vibe of his 2005 hit Kiss Kiss Bang Bang with this riotously funny thriller set in late-1970s Los Angeles. It's an entertaining mix of hilarious action mayhem, slapstick and violence anchored by Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe, who unexpectedly prove to be a superb comedy double-act.

It's 1977, and private detective Holland (Gosling) is searching for a porn star who was spotted alive after dying in a car crash. His investigation leads him to Amelia (Margaret Qualley), who has hired the thug Jackson (Crowe) to keep people off her tail. After beating up Holland, Jackson realises that maybe they should be working together, as other cases seem to be dovetailing around Amelia's politically powerful mother (Kim Basinger). But now Holland and Jackson are being chased by the legendary assassin John Boy (Matt Bomer). And Holland is having a terrible time keeping his bright 13-year-old daughter Holly (Angourie Rice) from getting involved in this dangerous case.

Gosling and Crowe play Holland and Jackson as a classic comedy duo along the lines of Abbott and Costello or Hope and Crosby: bumbling idiots who somehow manage to save the day due to dumb luck and someone smart looking out for them. In this case, their guardian angel is Holly, and young Aussie actress Rice more than holds her own against these A-list stars. Holly is the only person on-screen who has a clue what's actually going on, and Rice effortlessly walks off with the film, giving a knowing performance that's hugely engaging. The other scene-stealer is Bomer, whose slick, overconfident killer is simply screaming to be taken down a peg or two.

The Nice Guys - Green and Red Band Trailer


If you're on the wrong side of the law and looking for someone to send a special kind of 'message', Jackson Healey might just be the man you call. One day his work takes him to the door of Holland March where he leaves his own particular type of message for Holland, a private detective who's currently a little down on his luck.

When an employee of the Department Of Justice finds that her daughter has gone missing, she employs Healey to find her by any means necessary. Out of his depth, Healey calls on the best private eye he knows. Initially very hesitant to work with the guy who only recently sucker punched him, Holland agrees to help find the girl.

As clues are revealed, it looks like Amelia (The missing girl) has somehow become intertwined with the mob who are trying to branch out in LA. As the amateurs hunt down Amelia, the case takes them down dangerous paths they never thought they'd venture down.

Walking With Dinosaurs: The 3D Movie Review


OK

The filmmakers make a serious mistake by aiming this educational epic at very young children, because they've undermined the considerable skill and artistry that have gone into making it. An astoundingly trite script overflows with goofy slang and lame jokes that make the film virtually unwatchable for anyone over the age of 5. And the dialog tries so hard to be hip and cool that it already feels badly dated.

It opens on a rather awkward framing story about a palaeontologist (Urban) who takes his niece and nephew (Rice and Rowe) to look for dinosaur fossils in rural Alaska, at which point we are taken back in time to see what life was life in the Late Cretaceous Period. Enter Patchi (voiced by Long), a young pachyrhinosaurus whose best pal is a talkative bird named Alex (Leguizamo). Patchi also has an annoying big brother named Scowler (Stone) and a love-interest in Juniper (Sircar). As the young pachyrhinos grow up, they have a series of adventures along the path migrating north and south with the seasons. Vicious predators chase them, and both Patchi and Scowler take a shot at leading the herd.

The plot is fairly simplistic, but it's a decent tool to teach us about the various animals of the period. The dialog is another story altogether, packed with inane observations, stupid gags and lazy one-liners. By comparison, the required poo, vomit and snot jokes are genuinely witty. And a considerable amount of real information about the period and the creatures gets lost in all of the idiotic patter.

Walking With Dinosaurs: The 3D Movie Trailer


Alex is an Alexornis bird who watches the incredible transformation from infant to adult among his Pachyrhinosaurus friends Patchi, Scowler and Juniper. Patchi is the tiniest of the bunch, always trailing along behind the others and always the one to get pushed out at dinner time. However, as the weeks wear on, it becomes clear that he is becoming a formidable force among his peers, heroically defending his family against all foes including the gargantuan Gorgon the Gorgosaurus. As he slowly grows into the strongest of his siblings, he bravely leads the herd on their migration voyage to escape the food and water shortage that the drought will no doubt bring.

Walking With Dinosaurs 3D Trailer Goes Viral, Giving Kids Even More To Look Forward To This Christmas


Barry Cook Charlie Rowe Angourie Rice

The first trailer for the upcoming Walking With Dinosaurs 3D, the BBC Worldwide/20th Century Fox helmed family adventure/documentary, was release online this Friday (May 24), offering dino-fans their first glimpse at the three-dimensional spectacular.

The movie looks to have all the halmarks of a hit family movie, with an educational edge that may make it irresistible to kids and parents alike. The movie is the product of years of painstaking research and production to make a film that is not only true to the biology of these marvellous creatures that once dominated the Earth, but is also a genuine cinematic treat that the studios behind the project promise is nothing like what audiences are used to.

Using state of the art 3-D technology, the film will look to emerse audiences in the prehistoric setting of the film, in what will hopefully inspire a generation of future palaeontologist and scientist across all fields. The movie is not just a documentary about dinosaurs, but a well-informed story that follows a young Psittacosaurus who rises from underdog to the leader of his pack and a hero of his age. So there's a little Land Before Time mixed with the BBC documentary Walking With Dinosaurs then; sounds like a pretty good family movie to us.
