Re: Movies Seen In 2014

2014 First time viewed films:
1. Saving Mr.Banks: A
2. American Hustle: A-
3. Larry Crowne: B+
4. The Grey: C

This Liam Neeson film about man vs nature&the elements after a plane crash in the Alaskan wilderness is not very exciting. There is essentially no reason to care about who survives as no one but Neeson's character is given any depth. Even as the script allows for some time to get a bit of background on some of the survivors as the trek for help you can't help but root for the wolves at times. Then to top it off the film has an anti-climatic ending by not actually giving you an end. I'm sure they thought that by leaving it open ended, allowing the viewer to fill in what might've happened that they were being, I dunno, artistic but it fell flat for me.
