Baby Driver was better than we think (and we think it’s very good)
Matt Hoffman

I particularly enjoyed hearing The Damned song “Neat, Neat, Neat” but also loved the John Spencer Blues Explosion song (since I have been a fan since he was in Pussy Galore a million years ago).

On the whole I thought it was a very good movie, with a but too much Tarantino envy, and that was maybe 30 minutes too long (Tarantino envy without the same feel for stylized dialog that QT has but with all the Elvis references).

I also think the love story could have used just a bit more exposition (as much as I love a good ‘love at first listen’ story).

As for the soundtrack, I would say better than Guardians of the Galaxy (which was really just a Boogie Nights rip-off IMHO).

Like what you read? Give Josh H a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
