The Grey with Liam Neeson - A movie with a *huge* Atheist message.

 The Grey was one fiercely anti-mysticism movie.  The most blunt movie I have seen on this subject.  Who else saw it and liked it?

I'll wait till it comes out on DVD. I don't go to movies at all, too many rude people. Other than that I loved him in Shindler's List(always makes me cry when I see it). He is a great actor. Kinda makes me want to see it, but I'll wait.

I thought it was pretty good

I thought that it was pretty good.

When it started and I saw that Neeson's character was going to be this suicidal "Atheist" I first thought : Oh shit, ANOTHER movie about a bitter "Atheist" that will turn into some heroic love/light crap before then end.

I was somewhat pleasantly surprised that it turned out the way it did (I won't spoil it for those who have not seen it) and I enjoyed the poem that Neeson's late father had written and that Neeson seemed to adopt as a code for his life.

All in all, I enjoyed it.

“It is proof of a base and low mind for one to wish to think with the masses or majority, merely because the majority is the majority. Truth does not change because it is, or is not, believed by a majority of the people.”

Well said, cool cat.  I liked it too.  It has the strangest Film maker's Commentary I have ever heard on the DVD.  Email me to chat, ok?  [email protected]
