Drive(2011) review /Wrestling Links and new Audio Junk

Drive(2011) propelled by a superb score this movie follows a brooding driving savant played by Ryan Gosling. He is a part time stuntman part time getaway driver. He falls for his neighbor(played by Carey Mulligan) and hangs out with her and her child just enough to grow fond of them. She is married and her ex-convict hubby is returning from jail. After coming to grips with the fact that he can not be with his new crush, he sees the returning hubby beaten down by thugs. The driver decides to help the ex-con get straight with the mob by being  the getaway driver for a simple pawn shop robbery. He is given Christina Hendricks as a distraction to help with the robbery. However the robbery goes askew and is part of a bigger scheme. From that point this movie becomes a typical noir web with the protagonist trying to fix the unfixable. I love the score by Cliff Martinez(he also did the hypnotic score to Traffic). The movie  itself was an exercise I have experienced before- brooding outsider finds someone he connects with, but the connection is in danger due to the inertia of life. I think I would have enjoyed the score as a CD more than watching the movie, I did not hate this movie, but it is not something to seek out. C-

I went out in the driving rain yesterday to snag the new WCW Clash of Champions DVD from Wal*Mart because I was told they had extra content, well I guess something changed since I found out after purchasing my copy that Best Buy has the extra content for this disc- either way I loved the first 2 discs and will post a review to Wrestle Hustle before the weekend.!/jobberjoe99
