Podcast: The Nice Guys, Top 3 Buddy Cop Movies (Revisited) – Episode 170

This podcast is brought to you by the InSession Film Store! Get your IF gear today!

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, Ben Zuk (formally of Cinematic for the People Podcast) joins us to discuss Shane Black’s new film The Nice Guys starring the great Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling. We also talk our favorite buddy cop movies and we finish off the show with another edition of Are You Down?, this time talking about some film properties that are being turned into TV shows.

Big thanks to Ben for joining us once again, it was a huge pleasure to finally have him on the show. Buddy cop movies are a genre we are big fans of, so this episode was a lot of fun. It doesn’t hurt whenever you get the opportunity to talk Shane Black either, who has made a career in the buddy cop genre. In fact, on our latest Extra Film, we discussed his 2005 cult hit, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.

On that note, check out the show and let us know what you think in the comment section. Thanks for listening and thanks for supporting the InSession Film Podcast!

Top 3 Buddy Cop Movies (40:25)
As mentioned above, we are big fans of this genre and there are a lot of great films on the table for this list. In fact, this is the second time we’ve done this list. You can hear us discuss this on Episode 69 as well but because of Black and his Lethal Weapon films (which are generally considered the best of the genre and of course they get mentioned here), we thought that would be a great jumping off point do revisit this list. However, this was a first time exercise for Brendan. On that note, what would be your top 3?
