The only thing that is funnier than Ryan Gosling in the bathroom scene, is Ryan Gosling in the whole movie. Who knew Gosling could really shine as a wimpy alcoholic private detective? I did actually, because how could you not love beautiful Ryan in anything he does. With 90% on Rotten Tomatoes already, watching it last night definitely lived up to it’s expectations. It was perfectly paced for an hour and fifty-six minute movie. I actually thought I was in there for just an hour, it could of easily been longer. Seriously though, the story is great and you can sink your claws into the trailer above and get excited to book your tickets now for the weekend.
And I’m sorry Russell Crowe, that this is all about Gosling but you did a great job too. The movie is definitely worth more than the price of the ticket. PLEASE tell me there is a sequel. And/or does Holly grow up to be Nancy Drew? That would be a great freaking connection.
As for film of the year? Probably. I mean it’s definitely up there along with Quentin Tarantino’s new movie The Hateful Eight, but even between those two it’s like comparing apples and oranges. I would not be surprised if either one won some Oscars this year, but hey it’s only MAY.
