Movie reviewer has possible Oscar nominees on radar

...the rating, but based on my feelings about the ratings board, I can bet I'll disagree. "Blue Valentine" stars Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams, and comes out never at a theatre near you unless they work that rating out. "Toy Story 3...

'Drive' takes a dark, grim turn

...and Spanish zombie movies. I certainly didn't expect to see it in Kenai, Alaska, despite the fact that it stars Ryan Gosling, current go-to-guy for everything from romantic comedies to downbeat romance-dramas. But that's the beauty...

'Fracture' a good reason to roll your eyes

...American, and far more mainstream, "Fracture," starring a post-Hannibal Anthony Hopkins and relative newcomer Ryan Gosling, seemed just the ticket. I am such a sucker. Actually, "Fracture" wasn't too bad, but you'll note that I've...

The Ides of March

Opens Friday, Oct 7, 2011 Synopsis: George Clooney goes behind the camera for the fourth time to direct The Ides of March, an adaptation of Beau Willimon's play Farragut North. The movie stars Ryan Gosling as Stephen Myers, an idealistic deputy campaign manager for Governor Mike Morris (Clooney) who is in a major political battle in Ohio that could be the key to winning the Democratic nomination for the Presidency.

Just as that omission is revealed, Stephen uncovers a dirty personal secret that could sink Morris' political career.

Drive (2011)

Now Playing Synopsis: A lone-wolf Hollywood stunt driver (Ryan Gosling) moonlights as a freelance getaway wheelman, and he finds his solitary existence taking on new meaning after befriending Irene (Carey Mulligan), the lonely wife of convicted felon Standard (Oscar Isaac), and her young son Benicio (Kaden Leos). When Standard gets released from prison and is strong-armed into committing a bold daytime robbery, the Driver offers his services in an effort to help the repentant ex-con cut his ties to the criminal underworld. Things get complicated, however, when the robbery goes unexpectedly awry, and the Driver just barely manages to escape alive. When the take from the job proves to be stratospherically higher than the Driver was led to believe, it quickly becomes apparent that they were set up. Later, thugs threaten to kill Irene and Benicio, and all evidence points to transplanted New York crime boss Bernie Rose (Albert Brooks) and his hot-headed partner Nino (Ron Perlman) as the masterminds. As the Driver attempts to turn the tables on them, it becomes clear that the chain of command goes much higher than he could have ever anticipated. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Ryan Gosling, Carey Mulligan, Bryan Cranston, Albert Brooks, Oscar Isaac, Christina Hendricks, Ron Perlman Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review

But just as Cal starts to turn heads, his adolescent son, Robbie, develops a big crush on his teenage babysitter, Jessica. Unfortunately for Robbie, Jessica only has eyes for Cal.
