FREEZE FRAME: “The Nice Guys,” “The Angry Birds Movie,” “Pele: Birth of a Legend.” ORIGINAL BROADCAST: May 20, 2016 | Noon on "Arts Magazine"
The ‘buddy comedy’ gets a new treatment in an old way with “The Nice Guys.” The writer/producer/director team that brought you the “Lethal Weapons” movies reunite for a foul-mouthed action comedy set against the sleazy backdrop of 1977 Hollywood. Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling are terrific as a pair of mismatched private detectives who get in over their heads when working on the case of a murdered porn star. The movie is overlong and the mix of humor and violence doesn’t always work. But Crowe and Gosling are money. They may not really be playing nice guys, but the pairing is certainly a nice one.

Anthony “AO” Oropeza, “I love comics. I wanted to create my own one day. I didn't know how much work it would be. Comics for me are a great mix or art, story and graphic design. I now know the effect a well-drawn comic book and comic book character can have on a book and a story. I am thriving for a better book and a better story each and very publication. It makes it tough for the studio is that our book is about a Latin main character. It’s also bilingual, it is different. Anything different will succeed if the story is good. My goal is to create great stories and combine them with great art-with that combo, the books will succeed in all languages.”
