Gosling is as hot as ever and I am glad to have seen my final big pic of his from 2011. Drive is nominated for a Best Sound Editing Oscar. Some of the sounds which are so striking are for those of brutal violence. I was glad to be viewing the movie at home so that when the violence began I could have a glass of wine and look away. This is not my favorite type of genre but the movie is done very well.
Also on DVD...
Kung Fu Panda 2
Truth be told I only watched this movie because it is one of the Best Animated Feature nominees. I had enjoyed the first one in theaters and the sequel features the returning voice talent of Jack Black, Dustin Hoffman, Angelina Jolie, Seth Rogan, Jackie Chan and Lucy Liu. Part of the plot happily deals with Po the panda discovering that he was indeed adopted by his father the goose. The dialogue is clever in the non-action scenes and the rest of the story is about the appearance of the villain Shen the peacock as voiced by Gary Oldman. Oldman is nominated for Best Actor in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.
