So, we saw Drive the other night. It was good. (Not great, which is no doubt going to get us in trouble from all of the people around the world who mistake something that is slow-moving to automatically be full of depth.) It was fine.

Again, the “man movie” is a bit of a nebulous term; no one’s exactly sure what it means. But you know it when you see it. The guys over at AskMen.com took a look at the list of movies coming out this fall and pointed out the most manly movies of the bunch. The one we’re looking forward to the most:
