September's Most Anticipated: Drive

submit to reddit

It's the year of the Gosling: he's got a trifecta of film genres in Crazy, Stupid Love (rom-com), Drive (action/thriller), and The Ides of March (political drama). One of those ought to land him an Oscar nomination. It's probably going to be Ides, but Drive looks to be the fun one.

Drive is supposed to be awesome. Haven't heard a bad thing about it. If it opened here this month it'd probably be on top of my list too..

Other North American September releases I'm looking forward to:

Contagion: Hearing very good things about it, and it sounds like a very realistic, scary "end of the world" virus movie. I'm always down for a Soderbergh movie (as should you, Ms. Solaris).

Moneyball: I've never seen a baseball game in my life, but the trailer hooked me. Script by Aaron Sorkin too, so it ought to be smart. For a sports movie.

50/50: I've only heard good buzz about it.. Supposed to be a tearjerker even though it's a comedy/drama.

Saw Contagion this weekend. It was unexpectedly funny and the cast was all good all around. I have a major quibble with one of the plot lines (with the Macau people), and a couple of minor ones, so this wasn't one of Soderbergh's best. It was competently directed?

I'm not looking forward to the other two films. I don't see them having the potential of being remarkable, at least not on the same level as Drive?

Moneyball is getting great buzz, even Oscar chatter. Maybe the "sports movie" vibe is turning you off but it seems to be more of a good drama that just happens to be set in the sports world. I'm excited for it and I don't even know baseball all that well!

And 50/50 looks good! Yeah, it might not be on the leve of buzz that Drive has gotten, but they're even talking about Joseph Gordon-Levitt being a dark horse Oscar contender.

Speaking of Drive, did you see it yet?

Moneyball and 50/50 are on the list for possible viewing next weekend, depending on my fellow patrons' pick. I'm not particularly looking forward to see either film?

Drive was a-mazing and exciting. You have to see in theatre, then get the soundtrack! Check out the new 2011 list below!
