I went to see this movie with 3 people and we were all disgusted. We got up after ~50 minutes and we ended up getting free tickets to any movie at any time. The theater's customer service said the refund/courtesy ticket rate was off the charts for that movie...
Wow I hate to go really off-topic with this:
I agree that the best parts were first few minutes, however it kind of went off in another direction you wouldn't expect which made it a little different then other movies. It really was not that bad at all. You are making it sound like it is as bad as this jack/jill movie. Rotten tomatoes gave it 93%, which I can say that was a little too high, it should be in 70-80%. The music had a 80s vibe to it, I dunno what porn you are watching. What movies this year do you think are good?
I'm just pointing out that the trailer (as pretty much any movie, not denying that) made Drive look like it was an all-out action film filled with car chases and heists, and it turned out NOT being that way at all. I can't play back the music exactly as it was in my head, but I definitely recall all of us jokingly linking it to porn-style music, as such: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4fYfdlKIon4
Not being all of them:
(Hopefully Mission Impossible, watching it soon)
X-Men First Class
Real Steel (possibly my favorite this year)
Pirates of the Caribbean (didn't see it but I hear great things)
Fast Five (maybe my 2nd favorite)
Unknown (love anything with Liam)
Bad Teacher (not a great one but I think even then it outdid Drive...)
I Am Number Four
I'm sure I'm missing some from this year...Edited by Stealth Pyros - 12/12/11 at 10:06am
