DRIVE - a must see!

This movie is a must see.

DH and I saw it last night for the first time, and wow, some of the most stunning film-making I have seen in a long time; for those who have studied techniques in film you will appreciate this movie.  Usually I ask questions, discuss the movie at lulls...this movie though had me silent.

The main character ('The Unnamed Driver'/Ryan Gosling) doesn't talk much, maybe only has 5 lines in the film, but I could imagine in the theatre you would hear a pin drop its filmed so beautifully.  Be warned, this movie is graphic at times (I found myself quick to shut my eyes in one scene) but all in all, I would still recommend this film.

Ladies, this is a great date movie.  Now you have the silent/tough hottness of Ryan Gosling, and the intense car-chase/fight scene that men (at least DH) enjoy.

  • We just got this yesterday from Blockbuster online. I'm looking forward to watching it after DD goes to bed tonight with DH.

  • I really had heard a lot of good things, so maybe I had my expectations too high but I didn't really like it that much. There were some great scenes, I agree. But I felt overall the movie took itself a little too seriously. I rolled my eyes at some of it. And I felt the graphic nature of the violence was really unnecessary. 

    Carey Mulligan was great. I'm really enjoying watching her grow into adult roles.  

  • I thought it was amazing.  I couldn't believe it was snubbed so completely at the Oscars.  
  • I thought it was soooooooo slooooooowwwwwww.  We watched it with another couple and none of the 4 of us really liked it.  I'd give it a 7 out of 10.  Of course, Ryan Gosling is SUPERFINE but other than that I thought the movie was just "meh".  I was expecting more action and car chases.  There was one car chase and one robbery scene, and then some random violence, the rest was just so slow.

  • My husband hated it, and I didn't like it much either. We thought it was too slow, and we couldn't give a damn about the filming when the story itself was so lacking. I found the absence of dialog to be frustrating rather than beautiful. 
  • One of the worst movies I've seen in a long time.

  • I had zero expectations when we went to see it, and I really liked it.  It had kind of a fun 80s vibe going.  I wasn't a fan of the violence though.

  • Lol I sang the praises of this movie last year. :) I loved the opening credits
  • I was not a fan at all.

    It was sooo slow and I actually expected more action than there was.

  • I tried to like this movie, I really did.  The story was weak and a little confusing.  Did not like this movie at all.  DH felt the same
