All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Drive (2011)

Starring: Ryan Gosling, Carey Mulligan, Albert Brooks, Ron Perlman, Bryan Cranston
Director: Nicolas Winding Refn

A mechanic and stuntman for the movies also acts as a getaway driver. And he's good at it. Better than good. He falls the girl next door and in order to keep her safe, helps her husband pull a job. Things go terribly wrong and the driver finds himself in deep trouble.

My Take:
The reason I included this movie is because of the gore. It has some of the most graphic and real looking gore I've seen in awhile. And it's incredibly violent.
A girl gets their brains blown out and their little, slow moving chunks of visceral flying in the air. A person gets their arm flayed open with a razor and veins are shown pouring the blood out. Then there's a foot stomping of the face into pile of goo.
I am a fan of the director's film and most of the cast. So much is said with each character and never a word is spoken. They all have depth in their expressions.
I could rave on, but just go and watch the movie!
