DRIVE (2011)

As you all know my parents won't let me get my driver's license until I turn 50 because there are so many crazy drivers out there. That's why they always put me in the back seat of their car in my own little booster seat with dozens of seat belts across my body and ropes around my hands and duct tape across my mouth.

This is proof that the road is a very dangerous place these days.

And that is why I was so skeptical about this movie. But once I watched "Drive" I realized that this is the one film that will change that by revolutionizing the way we drive automobiles.

I know for a fact that gear heads love this movie, but even young adults like myself who have super strict parents that don't allow their kids to get behind a steering wheel until they are full-on adults will find value in the positive message of this film.

And I have a sneaking suspicion that "Drive" is going to be shown in driver's ed classes throughout the world. There are a ton of helpful hints here for people who are learning the rules of the road.

My advice is before you apply for your learner's permit or driver's license is to watch "Drive" about 15 or 20 times and do everything that Ryan Gosling does in this movie. If you do the highways and byways of America will be a safer place for us all.

I like the idea of “Drive” becoming a prerequisite for obtaining a driver’s license. There are definitely situations where having advanced maneuvering skills are needed, escaping from an aggressive driver as an example. I have to be away from home frequently traveling on business for Dish, but it gives me plenty of time to work on my hobby of writing movie reviews. It does not hurt that I love movies to begin with, so I subscribe to Blockbuster @Home, which allows me the access to the new and old movies by mail, or live stream to my laptop. This gives me my research material, while I’m away as a relaxation technique, to help me unwind after a hard days work.
