What did you think of The Grey?
Me, I liked it a fair bit, even if the wolf stuff was really kind of nonsense. Liam Neeson brought the grizzled angst, though, that cannot be denied. Aside from providing some real survivalist thrills, the best thing to come out of the success of The Grey has to be the increase in writer/director Joe Carnahan’s Hollywood stroke.
Carnahan burst onto the scene writing and directing the universally-loved Narc (2002) starring Ray Liotta and Jason Patric, a low-key, downbeat crime thriller that’s well worth your time if you’ve never seen it, worth it for Patric’s sweet handlebar moustache alone (it’s really more of a Fu Manchu–ed.). Smokin’ Aces followed, a film that, despite some great performances all round, ultimately proved more style than substance. 2010’s The A-Team was up next, a film that I still haven’t »

Well it’s that time again, time for another installment of Streaming for Your Pleasure. With Memorial Day weekend upon us America is about to officially start the summer. Barbeques, beers, and beaches will surely take up much of our time this weekend, however let us not forget the purpose behind this day as we celebrate the glory that is a three day weekend. In all seriousness it is a time to honor our Veterans and current soldiers for the remarkable sacrifices they make. No matter what political stance you may take I feel that is one thing we can all get behind. With that in mind I dedicated this installment to all things military as I look at military centric films currently available on Netflix Streaming.
One of the perks of being a film fan is there's always something to look forward to. We wait and wait for a project to come together and, once the credits roll, we're immediately looking forward to the next thing. Sometimes it's what's coming out next week, other times it's a sequel and in the case of our favorite directors, it's whatever they choose to do next. Two directors who fit into that category, who've both recently finished films, have just dropped significant hints of which projects they plan to tackle next. David Fincher's The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo came out last month and talk almost immediately began about the sequel, The Girl Who Played With Fire, being greenlit. And while that's likely the case , it's looking less and less likely that Fincher will return. Reports are that he'll finally make a movie he's been attached to  and developing for some time, »

The buzz for director Joe Carnahan‘s (Smokin’ Aces, Narc) latest film, the Alaska-based man vs. wilderness thriller The Grey, has been building steadily for some time now (and we just posted our review). Add to that Carnahan’s track record of dropping in and out of projects, and it should come as no surprise that questions are already being asked regarding Carnahan’s future projects.
Now it seems answers to those questions are coming via an interview Carnahan gave to The Playlist. According to Carnahan, his next two projects will most likely be Killing Pablo and White Jazz, two films both based on books, and both dealing with the violence and crime – two themes which Carnahan is intimately familiar with. Both are also projects that Carnahan has been rumored to be involved with before, though as Umbra and Mission: Impossible III have proven, Carnahan‘s connection to any film is often tenuous. »
