The Nice Guys (2016)
Highly original, incredibly funny, and a smart, twisty script, this is an updated version of the old school opposites attract duo crime action films, which works due to the smooth, incredible direction, amazing attention to detail production design and the phenomenal chemistry between Crowe and Gosling.

Well acted, a smart witty script, subversive, and really funny, this coming of age tragicomedy manages to twist expectations, while still having traces of convention, and the final result is one entertaining film that captures the awkwardness and uncertainty of growing up.

Incredible visual effects, a nicely paced plot, and some mixing up of the Marvel formula go a long way in making this a fun and immersive experience, even if the film slightly suffers (again) from a poor one dimensional (to excuse the pun) villain, and some shaky unclear universe rules.
