Dollar Reviews 022: The Nice Guys/Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End

Shane Black and Nathan Drake are back, and so are we! Tune in for this double feature on 70s era LA mysteries and Naughty Dog’s final Playstation treasure hunting adventure (23:40). If you’re too lazy to listen, I’d buy both of these for a dollar! (which isn’t saying much when I spent $80 on the latter). Plus, Steve talks about the latest 3D IMAX documentary, A Beautiful Planet (38:50).

As a special treat for one of Steve’s final days in California, we drove out to Hollywood to catch this latest spectacle in the TCL Chinese Theater’s laser projected IMAX 3D auditorium. A one of a kind movie palace which is fitting for the feat that was recreated for the biopic. If only the film was as special as our environment was that day.
