    DRIVE

    what'd you guys think?

    i honestly really liked it. i loved how the editing was done nice a slow. and i can't hate on gosling ever since Fractured w/anthony hopkins.
    soundtrack was damn cool too but then again my older brother barraged me with depeche mode and other new wave as a child so even though this resurgance of 80s style isn't my kinda genre i have respect and i'd like to think i have a discerning taste when critiquing it.

    the only thing i could pick apart was when he was driving his 72 malibu the tach was at 0 everytime i saw the dash lol

    heh, i noticed that too, but at some point later in the movie the 'movie techs' fixed it and it was just at idle even while cruising. it is an indie film, not a big budget, what i also found indie were the long, close-up shots, like when he and the girl are talking in the apartment, they have the camera stare at his face for what seems like a long time, then its even longer and starts to get awkward lol, with nothing said, just his face. those are my only real critiques, all in all the movie was fantastic, it was very realistic in terms of evasion and what not and i liked that the trailers made it looks like the 5.0 was the main attraction when it was only used in basically one scene (i hate revealing trailers). for all of you who have not seen it yet, i highly recommend it, it's not what you expect i assure you.

    Hey dude don't let me discourage you. I apologize if I came off as an ass, it was just so bad in my eyes. If you can download it for free then go for it! I wouldn't waste the space on my computer though.. $#@!, again my opinion. Just don't waste money on this film.

    What really heated me up was that it got such a good rating.

    Saw 50/50 last night, I liked that movie even though it is a little slower but it has a good story line and was funny.

    the ending was a bit odd but i thought it was a good movie. Like said previously - definitely not what was expected.

    Finally got around to seeing this, thanks to netflix.

    Personally thought it was fantastic. Looking forward to a sequel.

    Not the same old hollywood garbage as of late.

    I saw this, it was ok. If you like movies with very little dialog then you might like this.

    I went in expecting typical hollywood action film. It was far from it. One of best indie films I have seen in years. There is a lot meaning behind the little dialog. Also meaning behind the scorpion and frog fable.

    The way it was filmed was genius.

    The excessive amounts of blood and violence doesn't hurt also. Nothing like seeing the "driver" stomp someones skull open.

    I really REALLY hated Drive...it was touted as a movie that was action packed and a driving movie...it was not. It was artistically done (music and colors and the camera work) but it just didn't fit well, in my opinion, with the type of movie it is. It also has these random moments of gratuitous violence which were a little out of place for me and it seemed kind of random. I don't know, I went into the movie after reading reviews and was HIGHLY disappointed. My friends also agreed...

    Wow, its interesting to hear the different opinions from complete opposite ends. I actually liked it and thought it was a decent movie. I did not go into the movie thinking it was an action packed driving movie at all. To be honest I had little idea what it was about and decided to pick it up.
