What We’ve Been Watching:
A collection of other things we’ve been watching during the week.
Feature Film Review
‘The Grey’ directed by Joe Carnahan and written by Joe Carnahan & Ian Mackenzie Jeffers based on his short story “Ghost Walker”. It stars Liam Neeson, Dermot Mulroney, Frank Grillo, Dallas Roberts, Nonso Anozie, Joe Anderson and some really ticked off wolves.
In Alaska, an oil drilling team struggle to survive after a plane crash strands them in the wild. Hunting the humans are a pack of wolves who see them as intruders. Source: IMDB
Spoiler Section: 31:14 – 38:30 – Fast forward this bit if you don’t want to hear spoilers.
Our Verdict: This film had us split. Richard enjoyed the film and thought it was a decent adventure film. David thought the ending let the whole film down.

Lists of Five:
This week our Lists of Five: Five Great Body Parts in Movies. Liam Neeson is reputed to have a very large penis (there I said it!) and in the new film “Shame” Michael Fassbender dangles his manhood in the wind so it got us thinking, what are five really great body parts in the movies? Here are our lists… this may not be safe for work!
Just a reminder, because we never like to just make things easy on ourselves, our lists are not necessarily top five lists, they are more or a less a list of film recommendations within the theme of the list.
