#2 and 3.

Looks like it'll be good, albeit predictable. And I struggle to see gosling coming across as anything but a pretty boy (let alone 'carny trash') or Bradley Cooper as believable in a drama, but I like that they are trying.

I wanted to click "predictable" but I clicked "masturbating" because I just couldn't help myself.

I was won over by Blue Valentine enough to give this one the benefit of the doubt.

What @2 said :), though since Nick Stahl just got arrested by the LAPD for touching himself in a private booth, by himself, in a Hollywood porn palace (who're you protecting/serving again, gumshoes?), I'm more than a little anxious.

You know it's going to be bad when most of the quoted review snippets ("A brilliant, towering film") are from movie web sites.

Drive was pretty spectacularly stupid. Like, evil Forrest Gump is a stunt driver/serial killer level stupid. And this looks even stupider than Drive.

It's got Ryan Gosling in it. How bad could it be. At least you could look at him for the length of the picture.
