Saw Drive last night. I wish I hadn't. I'm okay with movie violence, but I wasn't okay with that.

It could be worse - you could have seen Irreversible.  That said, Drive was my movie of the year last year.

I liked Drive. Ryan Gosling is one hell of an actor.

Definitely.  Have you seen Half Nelson?  He's really good in it.

Maybe it's my prejudice from having only seen him in chick flicks I was forced to watch, but "Ryan Gosling" and "great actor" don't go together in my mind.  Nothing I saw in commercials or trailers for "Drive" make me think otherwise, either.

Watch "Half Nelson" and "Drive" and that'll change - he is a really, really good actor.  My wife thought the same thing until she saw "Drive".

I can only speculate that some maroon was responsible for those trailers, since they were total piss.  The director of "Drive", Nicolas Winding Refn, can do no wrong with me considering his contribution to film with this masterpiece:

"Half Nelson" and "Pusher 3" are on there now.  Gosling isn't in "Pusher 3", obviously, but if you want to see a pretty disturbing flick about the underbelly of drug dealing in Copenhagen with the dude that was in that crapshow "2012", give it a try.

He was really good in "All Good Things" as well. Also, "Crazy, Stupid, Love" was good. It was a comedy, but he did a pretty decent job.

See Ides of March, Fracture, Lars and the Real Girl and Crazy, Stupid, Love. All great movies by Gosling. Guy can act.

It's unfortunate that "Ides of March" was a cliched turd.

Saw "Take Shelter" last night after doing my best Ronnie Coleman impersonation at the gym.  Really great movie.
