out today: drive on blu-ray

upon second and third viewing, drive was my favorite movie of 2011 in front of midnight in paris and 50/50.  it’s a damn shame the academy didn’t give it any love when they announced the oscar nominations last week.  one film blogger said it was too much of a homage film to stand out amongst the other nominees.  huh?  i’m no film expert, but isn’t the artist a homage to silent movies?  moving right along…drive is out today on blu-ray.  if you haven’t seen it, you’re in for a real treat.  i’m not going to give anything away, but the movie is not what you expect.  ryan gosling is perfectly cast as the no-named driver.  dude is a total badass.  if you’re interested in learning more about the style in drive, see my previous post here.  great flick.

out today

the social network on blu-ray.  i will be making this purchase.  i still think inception was my favorite movie of 2010, but this was a close second.  since several months have passed since i’ve seen it, i want to make sure it’s as good as i remember.  i think it will be. 

holiday gift idea

the town is one of my favorite movies of the year.  it’s incredible what ben affleck has been able to do with his career since almost destroying it by making the worst movie of all time and dating jennifer lopez.  one of the extras included is a tour of boston from ben affleck.  more actors need to do that when they film movies in their hometowns.  great idea.  oh and blake lively is in this movie which makes it a must-see.
