I enjoyed this a great deal when I watched it in theaters. I'll gladly add it to my collection.

Re: Drive - 1/31/12

For those interested, the director wants to do a special edition in the next year or so:

Re: Drive - 1/31/12

This was easily my favorite film of 2011. I'll buy this BD, and any other SE that comes after it.

Also, soundtrack is phenomenally awesome.

Re: Drive - 1/31/12

I'll probably end up getting both this and the inevitable SE.

Image doesn't work unless you've gone to the site. That's definitely lite if that's all the features.

Re: Drive - 1/31/12

They couldn't have kept the hot pink lettering on the title? Yep, def light on extras, but not so big a deal knowing there's another edition on the horizon. Crossing my fingers for Criterion.

Re: Drive - 1/31/12

Blu-ray.com Review:

Drive is a fine little movie that's quite unlike most pictures dotting the cinematic landscape these days. It's more style than substance, more confident than profit-driven, but this is a rare case where style is so good -- because it's so reserved and so engaging simultaneously -- that it dwarfs substance, which is fairly shallow but that does become more meaningful the further viewers want to dig. Everything in the movie plays in absolute perfect harmony, the entire thing defined by the smoothest, most faultlessly-constructed visuals in recent memory. Sony's Blu-ray release of Drive features high quality video and audio to go along with five substantive extras. Very highly recommended.

Video: 4.5/5
Audio: 4.5/5
Extra Features: 2.5/5

Drive contains five film-specific supplements. Unfortunately, an audio commentary track is not amongst them.

I Drive (1080p, 5:26): A short piece that looks at the story, character qualities, and the work of the writer and director.
Under the Hood (1080p 11:50): This piece looks in-depth at the characters and the cast.
Driver and Irene (1080p, 6:14): a look at the film's "love story pared down to its bare essentials."
Cut to the Chase (1080p, 4:35): A brief supplement that offers a glimpse into the making of the film's driving scenes and vehicular stunt work.
Drive Without a Driver: Entretien Avec Nicolas Winding Refn (1080p, 25:41): The director shares with some depth and scope his thoughts on the film.
Previews: Additional Sony titles.
BD-Live.
UV Copy.

He said he would like to work on a more, elaborate edition. Who knows if Sony will do it or license it out to Criterion or Image for it to actually happen.

I'm fine with waiting on a price drop or that talked about edition. The film will be on Netflix streaming in 1080p and 5.1 within the next three-to-six months anyway thanks due to FilmDistrict.

Re: Drive - 1/31/12

I can't wait. I know this release won't be amazing as far as features go. But I plan on picking up this on day one, as well as double dipping if there is a future release.
