I p much despise driving movies where the cars go faster than Stewart's in Vertigo

i was sold on this movie when they released this clip during cannes:

holy cow

Morbs, I take it Ed hates this one too, so you'll at least have one other person in your corner.

I have no expectations either way! I haven't even watched the trailer! (I don't watch trailers anymore if they can be avoided.) I'm willing to be surprised by Nicholas Driving Refn, whose earlier films sounded like the bleakest horseshit imaginable. Maybe Hollywood will save him.

It helps to enjoy visceral pleasure.

well, that's what I'm expecting to get out of Warrior.

... the MMA movie?

Tal Berkowitz - Vaccine advocate (DJP), Friday, 9 September 2011 16:39 (2 years ago) Permalink

I prefer to call it man-p0rn.

As you know, E, I also draw visceral pleasure from Temple of Doom and The Awful Truth.

will probably watch this movie tho

Warning bells going off left and right for me on Warrior, as they should be for you and Drive, Morbs.

A shame, tho, because Tom Hardy's about the only one to rival my love for Gosling lately ... when he's not disgustingly puffed up like he is in Warrior.

Gus Van Sant's Gerry Blank (Eric H.), Friday, 9 September 2011 17:02 (2 years ago) Permalink

I like the Australian dude more, tho I have no memory of him in two Sith Wars movies. I do think that any film that inspires AO Scott to write "Sometimes you just have to strip down to your shorts and beat somebody senseless" should be patronized.
Then again, I have no time to see 'regular' movies.

Wouldn't you just prefer to do that yourself? I have absolutely no desire to see movies about rock climbing.

well, there's nowhere to go after the Stallone classic.

No; actually he spends a few scenes in this movie with even his face covered.

i shouldnt attempt to speak for morbs but i have my doubts whether the manporn quotient will be enough to overcome the fact that it's a sentimental uplifting sports movie. but, i would be delighted if he dug it too~!

I've never even put MMA gloves on, and really haven't ever done anything like it, with the occasional exception of sex.

He also told the story of getting Ryan Gosling to do the film, for which he didn’t yet have the story. They went to dinner, and Winding-Refn, who doesn’t drive, asked Gosling to drive him home.

“There was this awkward silence between us. Ryan turns on the radio. It’s soft rock -- REO Speedwagon, ‘I can’t fight this feeling.’ And I start to cry. Literally. Tears falling down my cheek.

“Ryan is thinking how the fuck do I get him out of my car? And I start singing the song. It’s foreplay. I’m really into it. I slapped my knee. And turned to Ryan in car, and I scream in his face, music so loud -- I got it!

“It’s a man driving around in a car at night listening to music, that’s his emotional release.”

That became the film, "Drive," which opens in the fall.

johnny crunch, Saturday, 27 April 2013 17:45 (1 year ago) Permalink

yeah ive been hearing people say gosling's part of the film was the best but i didnt think so. felt like same old, same old to me. and it didnt seem appropriate to recycle his Drive mannerisms for luke. i dug the modern day part of it because of how nicely observed the interactions between the two kids was - felt p true to how teenage boys talk to each other

coop section wasnt anything fresh either but it was funny seeing all these swinging dick character actors suddenly popping up in what felt like such a sparse story. appreciated his starter jacket and dad jeans look more than gosling's celeb trying to be photographed at coachella in 2013 thing. get your damn zubaz and artfully unlaced combat boots out of here

turds (Hungry4Ass), Saturday, 27 April 2013 18:03 (1 year ago) Permalink

heres a story that cracked me up

You gave Dane DeHaan his first Metallica CD to get into character.
DEREK CIANFRANCE: Really? Can I tell you something that's crazy? Lars Ulrich, he was my hero growing up. I wanted to be like him. I played the drums. So I make Blue Valentine, I'm up in Schenectady, and I get a text message, "Hey, Derek, it's Lars Ulrich. I just saw your movie, and it blew me away!" He says, "I'm going to go to every rooftop I can in San Francisco and tell people about it." And I was like, "You don't know this, but man, I'm only ... I stopped playing the drums because I knew I would never be as good as you. I thought maybe I could make movies the same way you play the drums, with integrity and aggression and passion and fire." So he became a friend! He had a movie tent at a music festival in Atlantic City, and he showed Blue Valentine to a bunch of sweaty kids with their shirts off at a Metallica concert! It was a really strange manifested dream come true.

with that in mind i dont know why this movie wasnt soundtracked with the entirety of ride the lightning

ben mendelsohn kinda stole the show. that guy's magnetic as hell. i need to see Animal Kingdom. also its funny how you can de-age cooper by 10 years by just shaving him.

A shocking video is now making its way around the Internet. The video involves a man who was under police suspicion for selling drugs, even though he wasn’t selling anything illegal. The man, Donald Andrews Jr., ran a smoke shop in Schenectady County, New York.

The title is the English meaning of the city of Schenectady, New York, which is derived loosely from a Mohawk word for "place beyond the pine plains."[6][7]
