"I'm going to start beating the shit out of you in the next five seconds."

Perhaps influenced by the supermoon, we decided to watch The Grey (imdb | rotten tomatoes) last night. I honestly didn’t expect a lot from it, but it was okay. Not great, but definitely entertaining. And Liam Neeson continues to have a special talent: making himself sound like the kind of guy who’s smiling and pulling you a pint whilst simultaneously threatening to beat you to death.

By the way, we only watched The Grey last night after trying to watch Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close (imdb | rotten tomatoes) but giving up 35 minutes in. It was terrible. Seriously, terrible. We both wanted to keep watching to see if it got better, but it was just so annoying. One shudders to think how many bloody horse heads must have been slipped under Hollywood bedsheets to get that piece of crap on Oscar’s best picture shortlist. Blech.
