Yeah. It wasn't too good. It's scary to think of something like that but it wasn't that great.

It would have been great if they ended it after all hell broke loose and left you walking out without everything all nice and wrapped up.  That they ended it with a freaking U2 song was the final nail in the "it's a piece of crap" coffin.

Watched Real Steel.

It was cute, I guess.

Worth the price of Red Box, though.

Just saw "The Grey", great action flick with a lot of suspense. Definitely worth seeing.

Oh.My.God.  You LIKED this movie??? Could there possibly be a more depressing or pointless movie ever?? Literally everyone in the theater I watched it in laughed at the end of the movie.  Did you not laugh?  Awful movie, just awful.  Yes lots of action but ultimately a completely pointless movie, two hours of my life I'll never have back again.

While I haven't seen this yet I'm just curious as to why you thought there would be something more than just adventure action?

When I was a lad we loved this movie:

Robot Jox Fight Scene (Achilles vs Alexander)


So I now want to see Real Steel.

I don't see how The Grey was pointless. Gruesome and a little sad yes but it was a good story with plenty of suspense and action.

Did you get that it was a metaphor for the pointlessness of life?

Oh no, adventure action is great, but without revealing the whole  movie just trust me on this, it was pointless drivel by the end.  And the last scene is just laughable which was such a shame because I adore Liam Neeson, but this was bad.

A little sad?  Although quite honestly about halfway through I was cheering on the wolves so the movie would just be done already.

Now I want to see it.  From reading some of the reviews it sounds like it's a metaphor about mans struggle against death.  Could be nonsense, but I could see it.

It was a good movie, definitely worth seeing. One of the more intriguing movies I've seen in a while. I was drawn in and not bored looking at my watch or something like that.

Yeah, but last time it wasn't a metaphor for the pointlessness of life.

Pointless by the end? That makes no sense. Why do endings always have to be fairy tale?

I'm not reading any posts because people apparently don't know how to use spoilers (or I don't trust them to) but I'm going to see "The Grey" at some point.

Haha Chief I was going to put in why I thought it was all so pointless and use spoilers but I didn't trust people who haven't seen it yet to not peek  ;)
Who am I to say, could be the greatest movie ever, maybe I'm just not a deep enough person to get it  :mg:

We saw the movie "One For The Money".  We rated it a 7, for it kept us glued to the screen the entire movie, waiting for what happened next.
