    Just incase you don't go into the torrance thread, here's what i posted:

    And I've kind of likened it to Unbreakable now that I've been thinking about it for a day or so.

    it's one of the best movies I've seen in years - there's so much to it - it's weird as shit at the beginning - and for the first 20 mins or so I was like "what the fuck movie did I just waste money on" - but about 10 minutes later it was awesomeness all the time - and the first part of the movie started to make sense

    seriously great movie

    Enjoyed the film with the exception of one huge flaw... for a supposed expert driver, he's a pig parker. Check the scene when he comes home to find the neighbor in trouble. Larry David would not have been happy with that park.

    Some shots that stood out to me.

    Elevator scene: the push in to the scorpion on his jacket.
    After Hendricks dies: When he disappears behind the wall.
    At Ninos bar: The shot that shows him approaching the doors in the mask.

    Lots of great cinematography.

    this was the best movie i have seen in a long time at the theaters. gosling is simply the best actor going right now and i think he will cement that fact with his two movies this year. the soundtrack was incredible and the gritty look of the movie was utterly perfect. nicholas winding refn is quickly becoming one of my favorite directors. the violence ... just ... oh, my god ... amazing. also one of the best opening scenes to a movie i've seen ... well, since i can remember.

    NYDNA movie titled “Drive” should be about, well, driving. But the Ryan Gosling thriller was not what one Michigan woman expected when she bought a ticket to see it — so she’s suing. Sarah Deming is going after the distributor of “Drive,” FilmDistrict, as well as the theater where she saw it, because she had been under the impression the film would be a “Fast and Furious”-style action flick. In Deming’s suit, which she filed in the sixth judicial circuit court in Oakland, she claims the Nicolas Winding Refn thriller about a Hollywood stuntman-turned getaway driver “bore very little similarity to a chase, or race action film … having very little driving in the motion picture.” But what “Drive” did have lots of, according to Deming, is anti-semitism. In her suit, she also claims the film “substantially contained extreme, gratuitous, dehumanizing racism directed at members of the Jewish faith, and thereby promoted criminal violence against members of the Jewish faith.” Deming would like to eventually turn her filing into a class action suit, so other moviegoers can join her if they feel the film’s trailer misled them, as well.

    The car sound shifting constantly during the "post pawn shop" chase, even while in reverse was cheesy.

    PETALUMA, Calif.A California man arrested for throwing a hot dog at Tiger Woods during a tournament said he wanted to do something “courageous and epic.” Brandon Kelly of Petaluma told the Santa Rosa Press Democrat on Tuesday that he’s a fan of Woods and got the idea after watching “Drive” — a recently released movie starring Ryan Gosling as a stunt driver who moonlights as a getaway driver. “I threw the hot dog toward Tiger Woods because I was inspired by the movie ‘Drive,’” Kelly said. “As soon as the movie ended, I thought to myself, ‘I have to do something courageous and epic. I have to throw a hot dog on the green in front of Tiger.’”

    Good, nothing special. Pretty underwhelming actually for what I was expecting. Really liking RG these days though.
