Drive is out today. You’ve heard me talk about it several times before, and if you haven’t seen it, you have yet another chance because you can go buy it on DVD right. now.
Even my friend Clay is excited. Clay has “standards” for movies that keep him from enjoying the otherwise great films I recommend to him.
You’re the person I know who raved about the movie “Drive” correct?
Ok then. It came to me in the mail today. I’ll let you know what I think. Here’s hoping this isn’t a repeat of Harry Brown or Christmas With The Kranks.
Shut up. Harry Brown was great. And so was the Kranks, although admittedly I shouldn’t have recommended that to you.
Neither of those were great. I have hope for this though. Gossling’s a pretty good actor plus Bryan Cranston is in it so that’s a plus.
I know my blog is kinda turning into the Ryan Gosling fan club, but I promise this is really fun. Thanks to one of my awesome Facebook friends I was introduced to the site “Is Ryan Gosling Cuter Than a Puppy?” There is a pic of Ryan, and right next to him is a similar picture of a puppy. Then you vote.
Here he is with Georgie.
There’s an interesting story behind how I met the friend who introduced me to this site. We had a Gender & Sexuality (honors) class in college, and one of our class projects was to describe what a sexual utopia would be.
Guess how that ended? The genius students in our class decided that a sexual utopia would still include HIV and some kind of scarlet-letter dot to denote people who were promiscuous. Totally not joking. Go Indiana!
I don’t know how I managed to never notice Ryan Gosling. I went to see his new movie, Drive, this weekend, and now I’m in love.
Where has Ryan been my whole life? Before I talk about what a dreamboat Ryan is, let’s talk about how amazing Drive is. I originally wanted to see Melancholia, but it wasn’t playing so we saw Drive instead. I was kind of interested in seeing it, but as soon as the music started in the opening credits I knew it was going to be a cool movie.
What’s the movie actually about, you ask? In the spirit of me keeping with my belief that reviews are generally boring, let’s just say it’s about a guy who is a stunt driver for movies and he also does a bit of work on the side as a getaway driver for bad guys. You can read about it here, but I’d suggest getting off your lazy butt and going to see this movie immediately. You won’t regret it. I can’t imagine anyone not liking this movie simply for the fact that Ryan Gosling is gorgeous. Guys will want to be him, girls will just want him, but everyone will want to go out and buy some toothpicks and a scorpion jacket immediately after the movie.
Here’s a song from the movie. I love it.
By the way, hi. I’m back from my vacation and I’ll post pictures soon. We went to a shooting range, golfing, fishing, Nashville-ing, etc. Very fun.
