Durr Movies: The Grey

Alright, so a while back (last weekend) I went to go see The Grey with my buddy Matt. We both listen to the Rooster Teeth podcast, so when those guys say something is good, I believe them.

The Grey was one of those movies I would blindly see mostly attributed to the fact that it has Liam Neeson in it. I watched the trailer and to be honest it made the movie look kinda ho-hum. It just looked like "Liam Neeson VS. Wolves: Arctic Assault", granted, it is just that, but it was much more.

The movie has a lot of philosophical undertones like what are we really living for or how vulnerable we actually are mentally and physically when staring down the barrel of a gun.

The short and skinny of it is, it's about a group of oil-riggers located in Alaska who's plane crashes in the middle of nowhere which just so happens to be wolf territory. Naturally, they must stick together and make their way to safety or die.

Anyways go see it, I thought it was the best movie I've seen this year so far but I guess that's not saying much since 2012 has just started.

Case and Point
The Grey is: Deep Blue Sea with a heart.

Tomorrow: Harry Potter and The Woman In Black
