We think February is a month for DVDs in front of the fire all curled up on the sofa so here are a few of our suggestions.
If I have any recommendations to you this week it would be to familiarize yourself with the film Drive. It has recently come out on DVD and has a handful of award nominations already. Go see it! With a distinctly 1980s LA crime circle theme, it is by far the coolest movie I have seen in a long time. This isn’t one for the whole family though, it’s described as ‘sunshine noir’ and that pretty much sums it up. With a brilliant soundtrack that I have had on repeat for the past three weeks, I cannot recommend the whole package enough. An amazing performance from the beautiful Ryan Gosling and support from Carey Mulligan (who is a firm RRR fav) we think this film is going to become something of a cult classic. So if you want to impress people this month, bring up this movie and I guarantee it will be a conversation starter. Love it or hate it, it’s achingly cool so give it a go.
For those of you with somewhat more lighthearted sensibilities, try Crazy Stupid Love. It still has the yummy Ryan Gosling, with the added benefit of Julianne Moore and Emma Stone. The storyline is quite predictable but there are a few hilarious gags and lets face it – a great line up. Its very funny and will have you chuckling into your popcorn all night.
