Like we mentioned yesterday, Vine is a cesspool for mundane mini-videos where once in a while, something magical happens. Enter Ryan McHenry who has used Vine’s power to bring us what the public really wants when we’re looking to waste time: videos of the Ryan Gosling refusing to eat his cereal. Gosling is like the 32-year-old version of that kid you hated to baby-sit because he wouldn’t eat his food. All you wanted to do was force-feed it to him because dammit, this disgusting purée of peas has to go somewhere and that somewhere better not be on my shirt or the garbage. Hey, if anyone is going to refuse a meal, it might as well be Ryan Gosling who’s beautiful mug looks like it was carved by one of the great artists.

For those impatiently waiting for Ryan Gosling and director Nicolas Winding Refn’s ultra violent follow-up to Drive, here’s a the behind the scenes of Only God Forgives. In it, Gosling listens to Refn’s innuendo filled explanation of how the fight scenes… Okay, I wasn’t really paying attention to what the director said but I’m pretty sure that was the gist of it. I got lost in Ryan Gosling’s gaze as he stared down at the camera. Sorry, imnotsorry.
Everyone’s favourite good looking leading man Ryan Gosling has said he is looking to take a break from acting.
In an interview with the Associated Press, Gosling said he has lost perspective since he was doing too much work.
“I think it’s good for me to take a break and reassess why I’m doing it and how I’m doing it,” he said. “And I think this is probably a good way to learn about that. I need a break from myself as much as I imagine the audience does.”
Gosling already has two films set for release this spring: The Place Beyond the Pines and Only God Forgives. He is also set to make his directorial debut with To Catch A Monster which is slated for release next year.
A little break is always a good thing, but in what world would audiences ever be sick of this:
Giggling over tea towels with his face on them
or an old photo of him and Mouseketeer co-star Justin Timberlake
Or when he was shirtless in Crazy Stupid Love
The best part of this entire movie evolution of Ryan Gosling (besides him taking his shirt off in Crazy, Stupid, Love) is his strange British accent in “Avonlea.” When a scrawny kid Gosling realizes he’s unknowingly putting on a peep show for a character we don’t see, he remarks: “What are you gawking at?”
The evolution starts with his innocent Mouseketeer days, to when he played Sean in Breaker High (he was always my favourite). Then we get into his more serious roles, like Drive and Blue Valentine. You’re welcome.
Last week we introduced you to a video that mashes all the hit songs from 2011 in 4 minutes.
Now, we’re back with more amazing mash-ups. This time around, the 166 best films of the year are scrambled together in a 7 minute video, as seen on Gossip Cop.
Titled “The 2011 Portofolio”, some of the films featured includes “Drive” with Ryan Gosling, “Harry Potter”, “Kung Fu Panda 2″, “Melancholia” with Kristen Dunst and “Like Crazy”.
In just 7:44 minutes, 166 films are shown, 6 songs are played and the whole thing took 30 some odd days to put together. The way the mash-up plays out makes me want to see each individual movie right now. Sorry Beliebers, but Justin’s “Never Say Never” flick was snubbed from this playlist.
If you’re looking for another heartthrob-worthy performance from Ryan Gosling, you won’t be getting much of that in Drive.
But nevertheless, you won’t be able to keep your eyes off him.
In Drive, Gosling is mysterious and riveting and the only name available for his character is Driver.
A Hollywood stunt driver and mechanic by day, Driver serves as a wheelman for night time heists.
In early scenes of the movie, he’s helped by his boss and mentor Shannon (played by Malcolm in the Middle’s Bryan Cranston) who gives him a Chevy Impala to drive his clientele around to do their dirty deeds.
All goes well until he gets involved with his neighbour Irene (Carey Mulligan) and her young son Benicio. When her husband Standard (Oscar Isaac) is released from prison, Irene and Benicio’s safety is at risk.
Gosling’s ‘Driver’ tries to save the situation by helping Standard steal money from a pawn shop. But when the heist goes awry, it’s up to ‘Driver’ to take things in his own hands.
Fresh from Nicolas Winding Refn’s Best Director win at the Cannes Film Festival, Drive is an excellent action-drama thriller packed with violence and exciting car chases. Much like the style of Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill: Vol. 1 and Pulp Fiction, the film is filled with blood and gore. Though the movie lacks dialogue, Refn somehow makes it work through the film’s characters’ actions and expressions.
While Gosling is supported by a talented cast that includes the likes of Christina Hendricks, Albert Brooks, Mulligan and Cranston, he holds his own playing the violent and badass Driver. And while there isn’t much that can be learned about the Driver, you’ll somehow still be swooning over him as he tries to save the day in order to protect the girl he’s fallen for.
Drive may not be for everyone due to its violence and gore, but it’s definitely a film worth watching. With a retro ’80s-inspired score and beautiful shots of the Los Angeles streets and skylines, it will keep the audience jumping in their seats from all the adrenaline and tension that arises from the film.
