Episode 218 – The Nice Guys & The Angry Birds Movie


We’re staying nice while getting angry this week, because Casey and Dan went and saw the new Shane Black action-comedy The Nice Guys while Greg catapulted his way into The Angry Birds Movie. Is the former a rollicking good time or a familiar retread? And is the latter going to make Greg red in the face, or tickled blue with laughter? We’re going to find out, on our latest episode!

Plus, we’re diving into the latest news, including: John Carpenter announcing his involvement with a Halloween remake, the continued possibility of a Big Trouble in Little China remake, the state of horror and biopics in the year 2016, and more. All of this, with bonus reviews of Zootopia, Wizard Mode, Jaws II, Vertigo, The Blob ’88, and so much more!

    Just watched The Nice Guys, this is a really good movie, some proper laugh out loud moments. Who knew Ryan Gosling was funny? Holy shit he screams a lot though.

    Wait ok I’m back I’m back I’m back! THE LONG KISS GOODNIGHT is crappy! Dan is rightulus! Greg and Casey: wrongulus. Geena Davis is so miscast in that it’s like she’s trying to play the Accidental Tourist as a stroke survivor.

    I got a bonus round for ya! Given how much grief Greg and Casey are ALWAYS giving Dan about pronunciation… is no one going to deal with how Greg pronounces “Biopic?”
