As usual, it is difficult for the third movie to be just as good as the first two (LOTR, John Wick and several others are exceptions), and this movie is fun and pleasant to watch though a bit predictive. The characters continue to evolve and a universe has been completely reborn (there's new TV shows that have been started/restarted with the success of these 3 films!).
Though not as good as the first, this sequel was still fantastic with Benedict playing an awesome Khan that serves as a formidable foe to Captain Kirk. The story does get hairy at times and it is different from the original "Wrath of Khan", but it is still strong and picks up where the previous movie left off.
This movie may have ignited a nostalgic flame for older fans, but it also created a new generation of fans (myself included) who loved watching the motley crew gain command of the one of the most impressive ships ever to be imagined. The story is strong, theres elements of humor and the CGI make it the dream that Star Trek hoped to be in the 60s/70s.
The Nice Guys has a "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" vibe, or rather I should say OUATIH has a Nice Guys vibe to it with the old 60s/70s Los Angeles dressing style, scripts and plots coming together. The movie is a bit dark but gosh darn is it funny and Crowe and Gosling work together remarkably well!
Take my review with a grain of salt as I really really like watching movies about mechas (and other big machines), but this one dials it up a notch with the CGI and fighting sequences. Yes the story is a bit frail and the acting a bit meek but man when those kaijus are getting beat up, I (and others in the theater) were on the edge of our seats.
