So I saw Liam Neeson’s latest, “The Grey,” and I must say — it’s my kind of movie. Lots of action accompanied by rich dialogue that gets the viewer thinking about life. This is a rare mix so naturally, I was in cinematic heaven. “The Grey” is a movie some people may not be able to appreciate. The setting bounces between the Alaskan wilderness (read: snow + forest) and Neeson’s flashbacks to a crowded pub and the serene bedroom he once shared with his sweetheart. The plot, at first glance, is just as monochromatic. But as the characters fight against bitter cold, hopelessness and ravenous wolves the size of wooly mammoths, you’ll watch them discover more than the uncharted terrain can offer.
