Disney on Saturday! So long, cunts!

Movie review: The Gray

Just saw it at the cinema. Short summary: everyone dies.
I'm curious - heard about this kind of things for movies like "The Descent"- ... is there a(n American) version where the hero(es) survive in the end?

There is no such movie.

Perhaps you are mistaken with "The Grey".

Ah wait - it's some bullshit about nasty wolves. Wolves don't hurt people.

>> Ah wait - it's some bullshit about nasty wolves. Wolves don't hurt people.

It's a story about nature vs. humans. Nature wins. Sad, but unlike (some of the) humans, nature has no empathy, mercy or soul.

Nature in general - no.

I'm gonna watch it because I like it when all humans in the movie die.

Ok I just went very quickly through it - not much violence :-(

I bet that if they had Sigourney Weaver, most of them would have survived.

>> not much violence

That usually disappoints me too :)
But i got my dose from other movies (this year: The Eagle, Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes, Cowboys & Aliens, Conan The Barbarian, Colombiana, Immortals, fucking' missed Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol).

>> I bet that if they had Sigourney Weaver, most of them would have survived.

If they got Bear Grylls, it would have required no other :)
Yet, even according to the stuff he and a few others is showing on Discovery Channel, I'm not sure it would have been possible to survive in those conditions.

Bear Grylls could not hold a torch to Lars Monsen.

I generally avoid movie titles with the words "Eagle", "Apes", "Cowboys", "Aliens", "Barbarian", "fucking" and "Ghost".

Mr. Grylls is a fake wannabe boyscout in the most favorable of lights anyway. Sleeping in hotels, pretending to be "surviving", lol.

What's the name of that fat British bloke - he's the real deal.

Hadn't heard of it.

Looks stupid.

Now that I know how it ends, I have no desire to proceed.

Would be better if it was cannibal eskimos hunting them.

I liked that one about the girl who has been raised as a trained killer by the man she knows as father but who really killed her parents and then raised her to be a deep cover assasin for the CIA or some such.

Actually there were two movies with that premise, the european one and the american one.

European one was the girl's name, can't remember it off hand, something like Emily?

Hanna.

Why watch fiction when there are mind-blowing documentaries of reality that are dismissed as "lunatic fringe".

Life is short.
I prefer to spend it on discovering more Truth.

Entertainment I can do myself, in my dreams.

Lucid dreams and all.

A coworker saw it.  Said something about implausibly big wolves.
