You will all have favourites out there, favourite actors, favourite directors, favourite writers. It’s natural that you gravitate towards certain people, with actors it’s because you probably identify with him or her more, or just that you like their performances. Directors and writers though are a little different, you don’t like the people themselves necessarily, but you like their style, their techniques, their voice.

There’s also a television show on this list in the honorable mentions because – like I said – I’m not a huge fan of lists.
In order to write as little as possible for this post, I’ve resorted to using gifs from one of my favorite films – GALAXY QUEST. Turns out, you can use GALAXY QUEST gifs for pretty much anything in life. That said, let’s get crack-a-lackin’ on my TOP 10 MOVIES IN 2016 THAT THIS SILLY PODCAST MADE ME WATCH!
We have quite the treat for you this week with Shane Black’s THE NICE GUYS! Elvis Kunesh and Jennifer Garnet Filo guest star and give us their take on the 70s action comedy. Lots to get to in this big episode so don’t wait.
