The Nice Guys was delightful

I thought it was a weaker version of Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang. Good, but not great, and frustrating because of what it could have been.

I also liked Kiss Kiss Bang Bang more, but the comparison didn't immediately come to mind when I was watching

It obviously makes sense to compare tho

It seemed like a spiritual sequel to me. Buddy comedy, detectives, odd couple with little in common besides basic decency, L.A setting, convoluted mystery that turns out to be straightforward in the end, damsels in distress, bad guys who seem like they're punching a clock. Nothing wrong with a writer mining the same territory. One of my favorite writers, J.G. Ballard, was notorious for it. But for me it just didn't have the emotional weight of KKBB.

Nice Guys was a fun romp but there was no scene that beat the hilarity of RDJ pissing on a dead body...

Just watched Arrival and it was great. As a friend said, it's Interstellar done right. Or my take, a similar concept but a much smarter movie

The Wrestler.

Micky Rourke should've won an Oscar for his role in this filim. He was robbed.
