    What shit car chase?

    The 180-turn was a bit cheesy and at the start of the movie, when they get chased by the helicopter, the motor sound is off but other than that?
    The getaway car chase, its badly edited and shot to be honest and far too short.

    A crucial part of the film too as surely that was the time when we get to see exactly what the driver can do and is capable of behind the wheel on an open road with his back against the wall. Instead it just sort of fizzles out. Especially for a film called Drive about a supposedly ace driver

    Drive 2011

    It must be the 8th time I've watched this film, it's a fucking flawless masterpiece of film making.

    10/10
    A friend at work borrowed drive from me, than bought it back the next day saying she hated it and turned it off about 45 mins in. I wanted to fucking scream
    Your friend is right about Drive.

    Right about hating it? Well I'm sure she is, although she's only really right about hating the first 45 minutes.

    I know. I loved it and it was my favourite film of the last five years easily. But not necessarily because it was the best film made, but more for ways it chimed with me - the love story, the honesty of the brutality, the central mystery, the quiet shots of driving for the sake of driving, Bryan Cranston, OH GOD the soundtrack.

    Ah, different temperaments...

    Btw. at the end of the movie she's knocking on his door. I knew, secretly, she found that violence in the elevator riveting. ; )

    @LeoliansBro I agree wholeheartedly. I absolutely loved this film. I'm not going to say it's the best film ever made (I wouldn't even know what that is), but as you say, it absolutely chimed a chord with me.

    And yes, the soundtrack is the most amazing ear-porn!

    Classic American straight to video martial arts film.
    Pretty unique for American Kung-Fu flicks of the time in that it's trying to be fun rather than serious and for the most part succeeds.
    It's essentially Rush Hour but before Martial Arts Comedy's were a viable option for Hollywood.
    Should have jump started both Mark Dacascos and Steve Wang's careers but the producers had clearly never seen a Jackie Chan film and had no idea what to do with it. It was basically 6 months ahead of it's time as both The Matrix & Shanghai Noon were huge hits and would have meant this was treated very differently by distributors.

    To Live And Die in LA

    This is one of those 80's thrillers that I always meant to watch but never got round to it. Written and Directed by same guy who did French Connection and the Exorcist with a few familar faces such as William Peterson from Manhunter and Willem Dafoe.

    Not hugely impressed tbh and struggled to stay interested. Found it very cheesy (even for an 80's flick) and predictable. OK in places but wouldn't recommend it.

    6/10

    @HarryPalmer

    A mate of mine who lives in NY used to be quite pally with Jake La Motta and I remember this guy telling me that once he went to a boxing match with Jake at Maddison Square Garden and the subject of Raging Bull came up. Apparently when Jake watched it for the first time he said to his misses "Was I really that bad"? and she goes "worse".

    The Driver 1978 is amazing. Fun trivia: the game Driver had a tutorial level in a garage. Its a direct lift from a scene in this movie. Also, greatest car chases ever. Nothing comes close.

    Drive 2011 takes a lot of inspiration from it. Also a good film.

    Drive 1998 is a really fun American martial arts film. Marc Dacascos is sorely underestimated.

    Are we covered?

    Think we need to add the Sylvestor Stallone/Renny Harlin actioner Driven 2001 to the list maybe?

    And to confuse things further Drive (2011) was based on a book, and the sequel to that book is also called Driven :D

    Cloud Atlas: 7/8 out of 10. It was kinda all right, but I'm sure they were going for something epic and epically thought provoking. Still, not too bad... Too long though.

    The Place Beyond The Pines 6/10

    Cooper is very good but the film is too slow and the plot is about as complex and intelligent as something written by a 16 year old after they've been to their first psychology lesson.

    @Blaketown it was a much underrated film. I agree it should have created bigger careers for the stars

    Savages. 7.
    Good film, a bit disappointing considering the director.

    Benito del Toro? and Salma put in excellent performances.

    Life of pi tonight, wish I'd seen it 3d in cinema as it seems that was half to experience.

    The collection - 6/10

    I have a guilty pleasure in watching the saw and wrong turn etc movies and enjoy them and this film tries to blent elements of jason, saw, wrong turn into one movie that lasts for 80 mins. U end up with plot holes galore (even for a basic gorefest) and a desperatley tacked on extension device at the end. Where it really let's itself down is that u know who is going to survive from the start, and doesn't expand enough on the nasty blokes thinking.

    I somehow let my wife talk me into watching Harold and Kumar get the munchies, after she caught 10 mins the other night. Had always avoided them on the basis that they looked like the worst kind of shit. Should have trusted my instinct, We got 30 mins in before binning it, dreadful shite. This probably isn't news to the rest of you though.

    Seven eighths out of 10?

    Jeez, that's rough. Worst movie ever?

    Neil Marshall was in the running to direct Drive for a long time, when it was (I think) associated with that guy from Wolverine.

    Having seen and very much enjoyed what it eventually became, I think the right decision was made in the end, much as I enjoyed Dog Soldiers, The Descent and, in parts, that other one he did that starts with a D. Doomsday? Didn't bother with The Centurion.

    Blow

    2001 film based on a true story about George Jung who was supposed to be one of the world's biggest cocaine importers in the 70's and starring Johnny Depp.

    Not brilliant but pretty good and Depp is excellent; apart from the stupid wig they had him wearing.

    7/10

    Pacific Rim 9/10

    Spoiler free.
    Its Robot Jox crossed with Godzilla and its fucking awesome.


    The sheer scale of this at times simply amazes, characterisation and plot goes out to the window as its all about monster robot mash ups. This is so much un Del Torro like feels like a Roland Emmerich film at times. At one point i was having a monster vs robot nerd orgasm..

    The introduction of the Jaegers into action was stunning. Gotta be seen on the biggest screen possible with the biggest bucket of popcorn.

    Forget the so so Trek and the overblown Iron Man, the summer of carnage starts with this.
    Sweeeeet, been looking forward to this since the first trailer. This is the first review ive seen for it so delighted its a good one, cheers pal
