My favorite part is Marky Mark hearing a cell phone ring over a cement mixer. Brilliant!

Overall though, not a horrible flick, it kept me interested.

just picked up and watched The Grey last night.
I was under strict instructions NOT to watch any trailers. I was able to do that, and pretty much left the room every time I saw a commercial for it. I was very glad I did. the trailer gave had way too many spoilers.

pretty good movie too.

"The Right Stuff" -- I forgot Ed Harris and Dennis Quaid used to be young. Nice mix of documentary material without really feeling like a documentary.

"Shoot Em Up" -- Very Crank-ish, but with guns. Amused me to no end. I feel dirty.

"Run Robot Run" -- Still working on it. It feels like a British humor influence though not really being British humor. It's confusing when I don't know for sure if I should be laughing or saying "huh?". I feel like a pace car.

And this weekend I make up for an egregious long-standing sin... and will finally watch "The Usual Suspects".

Note to self: in the movie I want to write but never will, include a scene where someone brings lingerie to a Yankee Gift Swap.

Went to see Snow White and the Huntsman with the family last night. Really good movie. Charlize Theron steals the movie though, and is absolutely evil. Only problem I had was I felt Snow White could have been played by a better actress. Kristen Stewart just didn't do it for me.

^ I'm always curious how the budget plays into casting and how they balance it out. You would think Charlize would cost a tad more than a bad actress like Stewart. Wonder if there is somewhere you can find what they get paid.

Good question. I would think Charlize got paid a ton more than anyone else in that movie. Or at least she gets more of the royalties from it.

Too intense for young kids?

There were lots of kids there with their parents. Some of the battle scenes were pretty intense, but you never saw any bloodshed. Its PG-13 so it might be a bit much for the really young, but the only thing I remember as intense is perhaps a couple scenes with the evil queen. She was pretty creepy.

Wife is a fan of the franchise. After she said, "we should have just rented that." Worth a buck.

Same as my wife. Josh Brolin is still an underrated actor in our time though.

Agreed. He's a favorite of mine. He's come a long way since The Goonies.

I checked it out this weekend. I agree.

Paul Rudd was his usual awesome but the supporting cast was freaking great. Ken Marino as his brother won the movie, Joe Lo Truglio killed every scene as did Justin Theroux (sp?). Jennifer Aniston kind of dragged the movie down a bit though.
