The Screen Rant editorial team is back with episode five of the Screen Rant Underground.

Join host Ben Kendrick as well as fellow SR editors Rob Keyes, Anthony Ocasio, and special guest/Screen Rant founder, Vic Holtreman as we discuss this week’s most popular Movie/TV news and review Nicolas Winding Refn’s indie getaway driver drama, Drive, starring Ryan Gosling, Carey Mulligan and Bryan Cranston.

Screen Rant Underground is available in the iTunes Music Store but if you’re not near your home computer, check out our fifth episode in the player below. As mentioned in previous posts, we’re still in the early stages of developing the show – so cut us a little slack as we get this thing off the ground.

Also, Screen Rant Underground is an EXPLICIT podcast. We don’t go out of our way to say controversial things or use explicit language but it does happen – so use discretion when playing the podcast at work and around young, or sensitive, ears.

  1. Awesome! I’m beginning to become more and more inclined to watch Troll Hunter… Something I’d never even heard about before these Podcasts!

    Also, in regards to the re-re-(etc.)…release of Star Wars, et’s be realitic: The only important addition to the series was Dash Rendar’s ship leaving Tatooine in “A New Hope.” Haha!

    • Haha. Yes, anything Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire-related = epic win.

  2. Correction the opening title song for Drive is ‘Nightcall’ by Kavinsky & Lovefoxxx. other than that another great podcast

  3. Most ppl got lost in the first hour and back in in the middle-end.

    Surprised. But dude i htink this movie was a A+ Five Star.

  4. I also kinda think audiences are way too programed to see Michael Bay films. I think you may be overthinking the movie a lot.

    The movie was bomb.

    The mask is definitely a ode to Halloween. I mean it looks like Refn could have been a better pick
    for a HALLOWEEN remake.

  5. Dude… Wish I had been here for the ‘Drive’ discussion. School you guys!

  6. For me Drive was the second best movie of 2011, right after Super 8 (I’m a sucker for the old Spielberg Sci-Fi movies and 70s/80s nostalgia). It was just fantastic and I watched Drive three times in one month.
