Just saw the movie The Grey. Absolutely do not see! It's so fucking bad I want my $$$ back. I actually feel stupid for watching it. At the end of the movie some lady behind me expressed her thoughts out loud saying "you got to be kidding me. Is that it?". Holy shit I believe it's my duty to save everyone the hassle and the $$$. Don't see it. I really can't believe someone put that out as a movie. Phone Post

You both are welcome. Here is a review I could've written:

http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2012/01/26/DDLI1MTRHS.DTL

'The Grey' review: Wolves get their way
Amy Biancolli, Hearst Movie Writer


"The Grey" is most concerned with just three things: the breadth and chill in Masanobu Takayanagi's cinematography, the faux-Hemingway cadences in some of the brusquely masculine dialogue, and the acting, some of which is pretty darn good. Besides Neeson, who huffs and puffs with the best of them, the standouts are Dallas Roberts as a genial religious type and Frank Grillo as a hard-bitten nihilist with a neck tattoo. If you squint, you might spot Dermot Mulroney behind a beard.

Otherwise, the characters are far from memorable. Their main purpose is to trudge through the cold, or occasionally just sit in it, while bickering and waiting for the wolves to reappear and have their little fun. This goes on until the ending, which stinks. I won't spoil it (though I should).

Hahahahaha, fuck that I still want my $$$ back. This is a gentle review.

Ok, its been a few days, I have not changed my mind about it being horrible but thats my own opinion. I gave my opinion to a friend who saw it anyway and he said it was not horrible but not memorable movie just a run of the mill movie with a bad ending.

To me, spending over an hour and half and having a bad ending is horrible. Its a waste of my time. But thats just me.

I guess it depends on the person. I still tell people don't go but eh, if there's nothing else, and you have $$$ you don't care spending go for it.

I mean I won't buy the dvd, not the cd for the soundtrack and definetly won't buy it and give it out for Christmas presents. Like I do for some movies.
