“The Grey – Trailer” on YouTube | Decisions, Decisions

I’m still seriously torn on whether or not to see this film.
On the one hand, it looks like it’s extremely well-made and seems to be ultra-compelling. I thoroughly enjoy Liam Neeson’s talent. And I love wolves. But therein lies the potential issue…
I love wolves! And, if what some are saying is true, this movie has given them [wolves] a bit of a bad name. Any graphic scenes, with them being either injured or killed, would most likely also be very difficult for me to watch. What can I say… I’m a sucker for animals -tried ‘n true. 😉

In the meantime, I’d happily welcome any suggestions / recommendations / or personal opinions, should anyone happen to have any that they’d like to share.

Thanks for reading!

Awww… I just saw the sweetest thing!

“The Sweetest Thing” (2002; Comedy, Romance), starring Cameron Diaz (as Christina Walters), Christina Applegate (as Courtney Rockcliffe), Selma Blair (as Jane Burns), and Thomas Jane (as Peter Donahue). Directed by Roger Kumble (Cruel Intentions 1 & 2, Just Friends). Written by Nancy Pimental (South Park, Dumb and Dumber: When Harry Met Lloyd).

► Movie is Rated R.

While not altogether original, this movie wasn’t half bad. The cast was great. The storyline was more than credible. I wasn’t particularly feeling the romance aspect of it, as it came across a little too “lighthearted, superficial, and scattered” for me to be able to truly feel any genuine emotion from the characters; there was, however, some decent comedic value, as well as a couple of jaw-dropping, “Omgs!” moments. (I, personally, thoroughly enjoyed the end credits “behind-the-scenes” clips. I laughed ’til I cried on a couple of them!)
Overall, I’d rate it as an above average, fluffy excuse for an hour and a half of relaxation and mindless entertainment -good for a few hearty laughs and a couple of bold, brazen moments bound to leave you speechless. * 3 1/2 Stars.
