Watched Headhunters last night, it was brilliant. Definitely one of the best movies from last year. Jaime Lannister (can't remember the actors silly name) is BOSS in it. Great story and so tense.

Isn't the Kingslayer starring in Mama?

I assumed it was about incest at first but its a horror movie .

Cersei and Jaime should have a romantic comedy spin-off.

Both very different movies, can't really compare or critique since they tackled and explored different areas. I guess the best I could say is both accomplished superbly what they attempted to and are excellent films for anyone to watch.

If we're going by lead performance, I preferred Hardy's mesmerising take on Bronson compared to Gosling. But Hardy's performance as Bronson was essentially the centerpiece of the film. It was a character study chronicling Bronson's utter insanity and disturbed pysche for violence and making himself famous. Gosling as The Driver obviously played a key role as the heart and mysterious cente of the film, but the soundtrack, pacing, superbly shot action scenes, tempo and Brooks as the villain all worked together to create a cult classic.

Bronson in contrast was more of a pure character study of Michael Peterson and his later alter ego. Hardy essentially carried the film given the amount of scenes where it was just him addressing the audience on stage and narrating his story. Its an excellent take on insanity and how objectively good people can just go off the rails and Hardy was pitch perfect and harrowing as this utterly insane madman who spoke calm and in a sinister tone whilst constantly building to his explosive bursts of violence.

Appreciate them both for their different approaches and messages imo.

I prefer Drive overall, but Hardy's performance was probably better. Still, Drive had an overall better cast and more compelling story.

I don't like Drive very much at all. Always thought the movie was pseudo-complex atmospheric fare, and Gosling's Cerebral Palsy-like blank staring throughout just completely drew me out of the experience. On one hand, it seemed like this movie was trying to appeal to the Lynch crowd, and in other instances it felt like an overly stylized bubble gum vehicle to launch Gosling into superstar status. If there was ever an example of a movie's sum of it's parts coming together awkwardly, this would be it. It might've helped if the emotional depth in main performances didn't have the sincerity of a $3 bill. Nonetheless, it will go down as a cult classic and will likely top people's "favorite movies ever" list for years to come. That's just how the cookie crumbles sometimes.

I found Bronson good for the most part, especially in the first half. Tom Hardy is the core of that movie and displays a rare dose of charisma reminiscent of Dennis Hopper's character from Blue Velvet or Malclom Mc Dowell from A Clockwork Orange. It's a testament to Tom Hardy's acting chops that he was able to do Bronson justice, a notorious nutjob in real life.

I've never been very high on Nicolas Winding Refn in general. He comes across as a pretentious Ass during interviews and I always found his movies to be heavier on style than substance. He seems to have trouble sustaining his narratives in his movies since they often fall apart at around the halfway mark. I did enjoy the Pusher trilogy to an extent, it's probably the most interesting thing he's done even if i'm not in any hurry to revisit those anytime soon.

Drive by far for me. I've posted my thoughts on Drive so many times I really don't feel like doing it again, but it's incredible imo. Bronson is great too, and Refn is a brilliant director.
