    “My dad was not without love... but a cliched Irish motherfucker when he wanted to be. Drinker, brawler, all that stuff. Never shed a tear. Saw weakness everywhere. But he had this thing for poems... poetry. Reading them, quoting them. Probably thought it rounded him off, you know. His way of apologizing, I guess. And there was one that hung over the desk in his den. It was only when I was a lot older, I realized he had written…

    After presumably fighting off a giant herd of wolves in Alaska, Liam Neeson has now singlehandley solidified himself as the ultimate bad ass of Hollywood.

    After completing a five week shift at an Alaskan oil refinery, Liam Neeson and a crew of workers set off for a little vacation until their travels are cut short by a ferocious snow storm causing the plane to crash and nearly killing everyone in it. The few who survived must not only fend for…

    Extremely underrated in my opinion. You need to watch this on a winter night, wrapped in a blanket with a cup of hot chocolate next to the fire. Great survival movie with an ending that you will either love or hate.

    P.S.
    It wont answer the big question for stick around for after the credits for a quick tease.

    Preparing for this Halloweens Geek Swap means watching a few movies I have seen before and ended up buying for cheap on Blu Ray. Not for any reasons other than I remembered liking it, I collect movies, and it was cheap. I try to watch them to shore up my bag of trade-able goodies. Hence this re-watch.

    I really like "The Grey." I do. Mind you, I liked it more the first time I watched it than this time. I…

    It's strangely uncompelling and oddly pretentious; Joe Carnahan's The Grey is an overlong movie that combines survival elements with an existential mid-life crisis, and it's unconvincing as both.

    This movie is redundant, simple as that. I mean, the cold, the hunger, the fear, the rivalry between them men, and yes the so-called psuedo-philosophizing are all intense and important but over a two hour period, even as you're hanging in there through the violence, you want something more. Liam Neeson is…

    This movie presents a powerful perspective on the human will to live. Liam Neeson's character in this film starts off with no will to live and in the end pushes himself to the limit to keep alive. This film is filled with slow moments, but the action filled sequences more than make up for it. "The Grey" is a definite must for any who love watching the human spirit refuse to be broken.

    Damn, this one knocked the wind out of me.
    I expected to see a well-crafted action flick and I did. What I didn't expect was that it would be intelligent as well. The storyline isn't really original, but it's what is between the lines that makes this film extraordinary. This isn't merely a story about survival, it's also about what gives people their purposes in life. It asks questions about faith and doesn't provide any easy answers.
    At the centre…

    In the review I wrote yesterday for An Angel At My Table I said that I recognized it was a very well done film but that it's one that didn't appeal to or connect with me at all. I find myself in a reverse situation with The Grey. I do think the film is well done, but I can certainly recognize that there are flaws. That said, both times I've watched it this movie has hit me very powerfully. I…
