Ryan Gosling movies: 12 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘La La Land,’ ‘Blue Valentine,’ ‘Half Nelson’

  • Gold Derby
Full disclosure. Many years ago, I worked at the Disney Channel at the time producers were casting a revival of the kids show “The Mickey Mouse Club.” I don’t know who did the selection of the cast members, but among the then-unknown pre-teens they chose were Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera, Keri Russell and a gawky 13 year-old Canadian kid named Ryan Gosling. What a cast! All have gone on to great success as adults, but Gosling especially chose his own path to become one of the most respected film actors working today.

In the course of such films as “Half Nelson,” “Blue Valentine, ” and “The Big Short,” Gosling has been nominated for two Academy Awards and four Screen Actors Guild Awards. He has also been nominated for five Golden Globe Awards, which includes a win for his performance in the Damien Chazelle musical “La La Land.”

‘First Man’ Film Review: Ryan Gosling and Damien Chazelle Slip the Surly Bonds of Earth

‘First Man’ Film Review: Ryan Gosling and Damien Chazelle Slip the Surly Bonds of Earth
Those of us born in the late 1960s and beyond have always taken the Moon landing as a great accomplishment, yes, but also as something of a fait accompli. In his dynamic follow-up to “La La Land,” director Damien Chazelle reminds us that space exploration has always been risky and terrifying, with men closing themselves inside tiny metal machines that were created by other men, held together by rivets, and prone to a million mishaps.

From the heart-in-your-throat cold open, in which pilot Neil Armstrong (Ryan Gosling) takes a craft above the atmosphere but then struggles to bring it back down to Earth, to Armstrong’s eventual “giant leap for mankind,” “First Man” depicts the great accomplishments of Nasa as huge gambles; like the best historical dramas, the film creates suspense over events whose outcome we already know. The U.S. government might have been driven by its desire not to

Drake Decides ‘Don’t Matter To Me’ Is His Next Single, Despite Better Options

Drake Decides ‘Don’t Matter To Me’ Is His Next Single, Despite Better Options
Drake and Michael Jackson are heading (back) to radio. Yesterday, October 2, Republic Records announced they will start promoting “Don’t Matter To Me,” featuring Michael Jackson, to pop, adult pop and rhythmic stations next week, via Billboard. The Scorpion cut was originally supposed to be a single this summer. When Graham’s fifth studio album dropped on June 29, the Toronto rapper’s team pushed the track — which features unreleased Jackson vocals — to pop radio programmers, who spun it 102 times, according to Mediabase. However, the song was quickly superseded by “In

Bryan Cranston Is Responsible for His Shocking ‘Drive’ Death, Pitched Idea to Refn After Not Liking Original Scene

Bryan Cranston Is Responsible for His Shocking ‘Drive’ Death, Pitched Idea to Refn After Not Liking Original Scene
Bryan Cranston is best known for his television roles on “Malcolm in the Middle” and “Breaking Bad,” but his movie career does include one of the more beloved indies of the last decade: Nicolas Winding Refn’s “Drive.” During Cranston’s appearance at the Tribeca TV Festival, the actor spoke about his love of collaborating with directors and used “Drive” as an example of one time his voice was heard and changed the script.

“In the original script, my character and Albert Brooks’ character actually liked each other. They were fond of each other and I thought that was a great problem to have,” Cranston said. “What if your task is you have to kill someone that you really like — that’s odd. And in the script, it had him come up behind me with a garroting wire and he chokes and cuts me to death. I thought, there’s something wrong with this.

Wondering If There’s a Second Season of Maniac? Read This

  • BuzzSugar
We've been waiting for Jonah Hill and Emma Stone to be reunited on screen ever since Superbad, and it has finally happened! Hill and Stone star together in the Netflix series Maniac, a dark comedy based on the Norwegian TV show of the same name. The first season consists of 10 episodes following two strangers who believe themselves to be living out a fantasy life while they're actually locked up at an institution. Other big names are on the cast as series regulars and in recurring roles, including Sonoya Mizuno, Julia Garner, Jemima Kirke, Sally Field, and Justin Theroux.

Review: Beak Are Bigger, Bolder, Breakbeat-Centric on Cinematic Third LP

Over the course of their first two albums, Bristol, England trio Beak> synthesized a a handful of elements from across the vintage moodscape and murkiverse: the minimal throb of Young Marble Giants, the relentless rhythms of Neu!, the squinchy electronics of Silver Apples and the muffled vocals of Can among them. In short, it was a great way to turn cratedigger obsessions with psychedelic breakbeat music or Eighties synth soundtracks into a working, touring, motoriking rock band.

Editors’ Pick: Christine & the Queens, Chris

“Chris is an LP doubled,” writes Will Hermes. “First, there’s a mostly English-language set, with heavily accented lyrics, charmingly off-kilter syntax, and polyglot asides. ‘Let me taste/On a butch babe in La,’ she pleads on ‘Damn (What A Woman Must Do),’ lamenting the extremes of ‘what must a woman do/Para follarse’ (sure, look it up).

Kadeem Hardison Joins Showtime’s ‘Black Monday’ (Exclusive)
Kadeem Hardison, who starred as Dwayne Wayne on the classic sitcom “A Different World,” has been cast in Showtime’s upcoming comedy series “Black Monday.” Hardison will recur as Spencer, a neurosurgeon and husband to Dawn (Regina Hall), one of the series’ central characters.

“Black Monday,” which was co-created by David Caspe (“Happy Endings”) and Jordan Cahan (“My Best Friend’s Girl”), tells the story of Oct. 19, 1987, the day of the worst stock market crash in the history of Wall Street. Although the cause of the crash has remained unknown, “Black Monday” re-imagines history with its own version of events involving an outside group crashing the market themselves.

Hardison is known for his work on “A Different World” as well as his roles in several other television shows including “Love Is__,” “K.C. Undercover,” “Everybody Hates Chris,” “Girlfriends,” “House,” “Abby” and “Between Brothers.” His film credits include “The Sixth Man,” “White Men Can’t Jump,

‘Wildlife’ Trailer: Carey Mulligan & Jake Gyllenhaal Shine As A Married Couple Struggling To Stay Together

After watching the trailer for the upcoming film “Wildlife,” a few things are clear. First, and foremost, the directorial debut from Paul Dano is stunningly gorgeous. The setting, the costumes, everything just pops off the screen and looks like a painting. Secondly, Carey Mulligan is a force to be reckoned with. After starring in films like “Drive” and “Mudbound,” while also receiving numerous awards and nominations for her role in 2009’s “An Education,” we knew that Mulligan is a strong acting presence.

‘First Man’ soars even higher in Oscar race after Telluride screening

‘First Man’ soars even higher in Oscar race after Telluride screening
It may seem disrespectful to compare “First Man,” the upcoming film that goes out of its way to truthfully portray Neil Armstrong and the space program of the ‘60s, with “Star Wars,” which does not actually accurately render events a long time ago in a galaxy far away. But they do have one thing in common: a dedication to portraying space travel as very, very turbulent.

And so as you watch the harrowing opening scene, in which Armstrong’s aircraft accidentally bounces off the earth’s atmosphere, or any of the subsequent takeoffs of the Gemini and Apollo missions, all equally jarring, you might have an irreverent thought: These spaceships feel like neorealist versions of the Millennium Falcon — real-life “buckets of bolts.”

Director Damien Chazelle laughed when I mentioned this to him at a party Universal threw for the “First Man” team at the Telluride Film Festival. He knows his

Soundtracking: "Mulholland Drive"

by Chris Feil

I’ve talked a good deal in this column about filmmakers whose music is an essential piece of their cinematic identity, but seldom are they as elusively so as David Lynch. Blue Velvet took a classic sound to mirror the rot underneath the suburban American veneer. Eraserhead’s lady in the radiator. The immaculately perfect, “but-of-course” match of song and content of Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Game” to Wild at Heart. And then of course, perhaps most definitive for Lynch, the polluted Americana of his magnum opus Mulholland Drive.

Drive’s musical landscape is rooted in a twisting of 1950s American perfectionist optimism, a staple of the Lynchian top to bottom aesthetic. Aided by the original score by Lynch’s frequent collaborator Angelo Badalamenti, its music is drowning in an innocuous wrongness, critiquing the American “ideal” as it plays as something just left of center of that very image.
