Drive Movie
Drive has been tearing up the festival circuit since it premiered at Cannes in May. Through the Los Angeles Film Festival, Telluride and the Toronto International Film Festival, the film has wowed audiences with its brutal violence and subtle silence, omitting almost all the dialogue.

Ryan Gosling plays a Hollywood stunt driver who moonlights as a getaway driver at night. He gets into a bad deal trying to help his neighbor (Carey Mulligan). It’s a heroic turn for Gosling. As if he weren’t dreamy enough already, he described movies as putting you under a spell. Is anyone not in love with Ry...

AARP Tour: Bands That Shouldn't Be Touring Anymore

June 24th, 2008 10:25am EDT
Steely Dan
Sometimes it seems like a band just doesn't know when to quit. Just imagine how many times you've heard some classic rock DJ try to pawn off front row tickets to Steely Dan, or how many advertisements you've seen for a free REO Speedwagon show at the naval base followed by fireworks and the Glen Hill retirement community brass band.

After a while, playing to half-empty audiences of drunken suburbanites has to ...
