I watched Drive again last night. This is a dark film with some savage violence, but the kitch vibe, sincere characters, and awesome soundtrack hooked me to it within the first few minutes. I appreciate a film that uses cinematography to tell the story as much as dialogue, and this is one of them. I streamed it on Netlix, so I'm not sure if is a handshake issue with my receiver or if was made with poor surround, but the sound was very light in the rear surrounds.
I really enjoyed Drive and yes the Blu-ray version sounds fantastic!

Having some family over tonight and they're wanting to watch Evil Dead. I enjoyed it the first time so a second spin is fine with me.

Gallowlands.

Don't recommend the movie. Wesley Snipes narrates some of the movie and its just a boring cheap ploy to get him some money. Well my opinion at least.

We watched Beautiful Creatures on Friday night. I had heard it was better than the Twilight series (not hard to do!) and since my wife liked Twilight I reluctantly suggested she might like it too.

Well it started out ok but when the supernatural stuff started showing up it really fell apart for me. And it was really strange. Glad it's over frankly.

We watched "Gandhi" earlier today. This is a long movie but what a movie. For those who haven't seen this Oscar winning best picture from 1982, check it out. Just great acting and great story. I am in awe of Ben Kingsley. A great actor!

We also liked "Brave" but both my kids thought the movie was scary especially when the bear starting acting like a bear.. My wife liked the storyline since I it is a universal story for mother and daughters. I liked it as well. Good story and good animation.
