A couple of weeks ago, Rachel and I went to see The Grey. As with all films I’ve seen in the past few months, I intended to write up a little review. So, before going to bed, I tapped away on my phone making some notes.
Weeks went by, and I forgot to write it up. I finally decided that tonight I would draft it, though upon thinking about it, it’s been too long since I watched it, and my review really wouldn’t do it justice. So, I’ll just go ahead and post my notes and you can try to decipher (as I am doing) what I thought of the film:
Liam Neeson is tough. Movie about men, and in many ways, masculinity. What is masculinity?
Wolves are like monsters. Interestingly filmed flashback moments.
Few times where I felt like the actor was telling us what was going on. Not over the top, but not necessary.
Visual effects are mediocre by times. Distracting. Took me out of the moment.
Heard rumours of the film having an Oscar run in the fall. Can’t see it.
There we have it. If you’ve seen it, I’d be curious to know what you thought of it too. No spoilers, kids.
