New ‘Drive’ movie delivered odd scenes with ok thrills. FilmDistrict released their new Ryan Gosling branded action/drama/thriller flick “Drive” into theaters this weekend. I just watched it,and I thought it was ok overall. A lot of the scenes had a very odd undertone to them. I’m not really used to that. Even the thriller scenes were a bit odd,but were good enough to hold my attention. The movie stars: Ryan Gosling, Carey Mulligan, Bryan Cranston, Ron Perlman, Christina Hendricks, Oscar Isaac, and Albert Brooks.

Anyways, as Driver lives his odd,loner life,he eventually befriends his next door,female neighbor Irene (Carey Mulligan) and her son until her husband named Standard (Oscar Isaac) returns home from prison. Eventually, Driver tries to help Standard get out of a bind with some very bad men he owes money to. Read more »
