Something very interesting and starring Russell Crowe, Ryan Gosling and Kim Basinger is coming for all you crime/ mystery / thriller fans…
Directed by Shane Black and set in the 1970s, it looks like The Nice Guys are bringing great dialogue, fun antics, good music and some welcome twists and turns to keep us guessing.
All we need now is for the next trailer or two of this rather promising movie to please not spoil the entire film by revealing too much. The amount of story already shown in this version feels just right.
Matt Bomer, Keith David and Margaret Qualley also star.
A film about male strippers with Channing Tatum in the leading role isn’t something that’s particularly easy to ignore; even when you suspect that it may not be amazing.
The first time I watched the Steven Soderbergh directed story about a male stripper with a plan, I have to admit, I was probably too distracted by the dance moves and baby oil.
It was during the second viewing a few years later that I found myself appreciating Soderbergh’s vision a little more. Not to say that the film is now in my list of favourites because it did feel a tad long. However, this time round the lead character’s story and internal struggle is the thing I paid attention to and I’m glad I did.
Matthew McConaughey is very entertaining as Dallas; the seasoned male stripper in charge. Joe Manganiello, Alex Pettyfer, Matt Bomer, Adam Rodriguez, Cody Horn and Olivia Munn also star.
I can’t say that I’ve heard great things about the sequel, MagicMike XXL (2015). But what you hear all depends on who’s asked and what motivated them to watch.
