R.I.P Drive (1998): The End Of An Era

drive-cover

So as you all know, my favourite film of all time is Drive. No, not that one, the other one. The one from 1998 starring Mark Dacascos and Kadeem Hardison. If you want to know why, then read my original review here. I have also talked about it here (and if you fancy reading about what I think of the Gosling Drive, why not click here?). So yeah, I fucking like Drive (1998).

BUT NOT ANY FUCKING MORE, BOZO.

Wanna know why?

Drive vs Drive

So there’s a new 18 coming out called Drive – it’s got Ryan Gosling in and it’s directed by Nicolas Winding Refn (of 18s like Bronson (need) and Valhalla Rising (seen)).  It looks fucking amazing:

Doesn’t it?

People I Like no. 3: Mark Dacascos

The person that I like today (well, all the time) is one of the most underrated actors of our time – Mark Dacascos.  Unfortunately, he’s probably most famous for being on Dancing With The Stars in America, but before all that rubbish he was in some absolutely amazing films, including my favourite of all time – Drive.

Now, let me take you on a journey through this fantastic actor’s catalogue of amazing 18s:

American Samurai – For some strange reason I haven’t yet seen this.  Which is weird seeing as it’s got bloody Mark Dacascos in it, but it’s also directed by Sam Firstenberg (18s like Ninja III: The Domination (seen) and American Ninja (seen)) and it stars David Bradley (18s like American Ninja 3: The Blood Hunt (seen the first half but couldn’t bring myself to finish it).  ALSO IT’S CALLED AMERICAN SAMURAI WHICH IS A VERY GOOD TITLE IN MY OPINION.

Classic 18: Drive (1997)

Drive is my favourite film.  I’ve got it on director’s cut dvd, director’s cut vhs, and recorded off channel 5 (it’s got a different soundtrack).  It’s amazing.  If you consider me a friend (or just like what I’m about) then you need to see this film, because if you haven’t seen it, then I’m lying whenever I’m nice to you.

It’s so good in every possible way.  Here’s ‘what goes down all up in this bitch’ (the synopsis):

There is a man who beats people up really easily.  This is because he has a gadget in his heart that makes him really fast and strong.  However, he doesn’t want it anymore (idiot), and has been promised loads of cash if he sells it to these blokes with beards.  So off he goes to give it to them.

BUT IT AIN’T GONNA BE EASY.
