The Grey (2011)
I have experienced things in life that have taught me to never say,"It can't get worse than this"! Because I know it can.Every horror fan usually knows this by the films they watch. If you mistake what happens in films as things "that will never happen to me",well,you'll learn.
As The Grey opens on the cold,bleakness Liam Neeson appears as a man that has no dream of life left,no lies,no illusions.The reasons are not apparent. He is a sniper contracted to protect oil rig workers from infrequent wolf attacks,and shoots only when completely necessary.He respects the animal enough to know its dangers.His fellow humans he has much less admiration for,at least the ones he works with.They are the refuse of the real world,who deserve to be in the harsh conditions that he has chosen to be in.
On a routine flight to return to civilization the plane crashes literally in the middle of nowhere.The sound editors and techs did such a fantastic job with this film you feel as close to everything that is possible without actually being there.Real depictions of crash victims-and the cold,the cold is a complete character on it's own.That would be enough to threaten your life.
Then you are hit with the real fear.The primal one most of us have forgotten on our long ride at the top of the food chain. The line between our world of safety and 911 and sanity, and complete all bets are off,nothing will save you but yourself world, is very thin.
He finds out in the worst way possible that the plane has crashed in the world of the wolf and they do not belong there.
Having some knowledge of the animal, but not much else he scrambles to live and protect what is left of humanity in this unforgiving reality.
The survivors try to cope as well as you or I could,and we are along for every terrifyingly tense moment.
The Grey is real,raw,scary and so good you will be appreciative of every aspect of your life.Neeson is at his best when thrown against everything that man and nature fears, and it is a film experience. See it!
Year One (2009)
Absolutely Awful- May be worst movie EVER
Saw this last night. I normally like Jack Black a lot. This is what it's like to see a very good actor struggling with a disaster. I see all movies at screenings for free, but the studio owes me the money I spent on gas getting there! The time you spend seeing it will be a black hole in your life. Jack eats poo in this movie, this movie IS that poo! It's not funny, not offensive, though the poor Michael Cera, normally very good with decent material,is put through terrible actions, trying for humor. The writing is terrible, they are trying to comment on religion but it's a mess. It all comes down to the director. Some one is to blame . This is worse than Ishtar! Here's hoping they can be better next time.
