Why You Have to See "Drive!" Check Out My Movie Review! 


To read my movie review of "Drive," click here

Here's more info on "Drive" from Yahoo:

Driver is a Los Angeles wheelman for hire, stunt driving for movie productions by day and steering getaway vehicles for armed heists by night. Though a loner by nature, Driver can't help falling in love with his beautiful neighbor Irene, a vulnerable young mother dragged into a dangerous underworld by the return of her ex-convict husband Standard. After a heist intended to pay off Standard's protection money spins unpredictably out of control, Driver finds himself driving defense for the girl he loves, tailgated by a syndicate of deadly serious criminals. But when he realizes that the gangsters are after more than the bag of cash in his trunk - that they're coming straight for Irene and her son - Driver is forced to shift gears and go on offense.

Christina Hendricks Talks About "I Don't Know How She Does It!"  


I love Christina Hendricks! Not only is she sweet and hot, she's also a fantastic actress. This weekend alone, she's starring in both "Drive" and "I Don't Know How She Does It." And of course, she's part of the powerful "Mad Men" ensemble. So how does she do it?

In this interview, we talked about:

*** WHAT ATTRACTED HER TO THE CHARACTER OF ALLISON HENDERSON?

*** WAS SHE A FAN OF THE BOOK BY ALLISON PEARSON?

*** SO HOW DOES SHE DO IT?

*** THE FEMINISM MANTRA OF THE MOVIE -- CAN WOMEN REALLY HAVE IT ALL?

HAVE FUN!!!



Here's more info on "I Don't Know How She Does It" from Yahoo:

Kate Reddy devotes her days to her job with a Boston-based financial management firm. At night she goes home to her adoring, recently-downsized architect husband Richard and their two young children. It's a non-stop balancing act, the same one that Kate's acerbic best friend and fellow working mother Allison performs on a daily basis, and that Kate's super-brainy, child-phobic young junior associate Momo fully intends to avoid. When Kate gets handed a major new account that will require frequent trips to New York, Richard also wins the new job he's been hoping for -- and both will be spreading themselves even thinner. Complicating matters is Kate's charming new business associate Jack Abelhammer, who begins to prove an unexpected source of temptation.

"Drive" Movie Review -- How Many Kisses Does Ryan Gosling Get? 


Ryan Gosling is having a great year. The thinking man’s heartthrob gave a memorable performance in “Crazy, Stupid, Love” and he is set to steal the spotlight from George Clooney in the upcoming political drama “The Ides of March.”


In “Drive,” Gosling, a gifted risk-taker of an actor, delivers a subdued yet fully realized portrayal of a man who works as a Hollywood stunt driver by day and a getaway wheelman at night.

Much like Ryan O’Neal in 1978’s “The Driver,” Gosling’s character is simply called Driver. He’s a man with no name and he rarely speaks. We understand his psyche from what he chooses to wear – a satin jacket with a logo of a golden scorpion. Read More...

Want to See the Batwing in Action? Take a Look at the Filming Footage of "The Dark Knight Rises!" 
Director Christopher Nolan is currently shooting "The Dark Knight Rises" in downtown Los Angeles, and of course, fans are present! Take a look at the footage below where you can see the Batwing in action, almost, under the 6th Street bridge (the darn bridge obscured the footage but oh well).

The third film in the Batman trilogy starring Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Gary Oldman, Marion Cotillard, Morgan Freeman, and Michael Caine will be released July 20, 2012. I can't wait for this film!

Now, thanks to sdog1973 of Youtube, we can at least catch a glimpse of the Batwing!
