a White Mountain Films documentary : The Endurance [ Shackleton’s Legendary Antarctic Expedition ]
video review : Non-Stop
It’s not Speed on a plane despite the clunky title. It’s not that entertaining. The suspense level of the plot, which puts a US Air Marshal on a plane full of passengers that include a terrorist whose get-rich-quick plan threatens the life of everyone on board, is brought down by its own ridiculous implausibilities. This is a by-the-numbers action flick you’ll have to suspend your belief thousands of feet to fully enjoy.
my rating : 3 of 5
video review : The Grey
The Grey builds to a lone wolf metaphor at the end, but the title should be plural. The story takes place in a world dominated by real wolves who hunt to kill a group of oil drillers stranded in the cold snow after a plane crash. It’s a tale of survival, albeit a familiar one, held together not by precious dialogue or clever plotting; the men just trod along; but by a sense of impending doom.
