Watch how the wolves used in The Grey were trained to "attack" humans.

Are sharks really in danger of extinction?

Yes. Each year, 73 million sharks are reportedly killed by shark-finning fishermen, which has reduced shark populations by as much as 80 percent, according to a U.S. report. And while other hunted species, such as tuna, produce millions of eggs each year, female sharks will produce only two to four young during the same time. Now as many as one third of all shark species are threatened or near extinction.

Actually. I didn't like Jaws, but not because of the reasons stated above, but because it was a bad movie, period.

There was no such claim in the ending credits.

However, the demonization of wolves has always bothered me. Wolf packs hunting humans is pure fiction, and has no basis in reality. I feel the same way about the bad rap that bats have gotten as well. I don't believe in censorship at all, but they should at least put a disclaimer in the film, that wolves would never behave in that manner.

If it was a fantasy, or horror, film it wouldn't bother me in the least. But as Oink mentioned, many people still think wolves are some evil creatures ready to pounce upon them.

That would be true if it were a typical hun, but in case you didn't know it, The Hun is a porn site. Maybe a few whips and chains, a couple of dild..

So I came on to this thread to learn a little more about the philosophical meanderings that the film supposedly engages in but all I got was "GGAARRGGG!!! WOLVES DON'T EATS PEOPLES!! STOOOOPID MOOOOVIE!!!"

Insightful.

The bottom line is that you haven't seen the film.

I saw this on Sat with my dad. he likes survival movies so I agreed to go with, even though I prefer seeing movies in my home theater.

as with every movie, I try to know as little as possible going into it. even the smallest bit of info can spoil it for me.

had I read this thread before seeing it, the plane crash scene would have been spoiled by the post above


so with that said, the premise of wolf attacking/stalking was certainly NOT what I thought this film was gonna be about (even though you did see some in the trailer), since it's just not factual in any way.

as a person who's really into wolves (the alpha in my username is a reference to that), I wasn't able to boycott the film. not that I would exactly go out of my way to not see it, but I probably would have declined my dad's offer to go.

I don't exactly think that the prepetuation of the misconception is that harmful though. I personally think the Walking Dead/Morning After Pill was much more harmful to society.

as for the film itself, it was very average just as I would have thought, but it was fun hearing people complain about the ending.

I immediately thought of, that's exactly why the ending of The Descent was changed for American audiences

What is the deal with this now? On the one hand the movies that have a funny, or interesting, snippet at the end of the credit is kind of cool. You sit there, credit after credit and finally you get rewarded. But now, every movie, my wife is like is there something at the end? I say I don't know. So we sit there, and of course there is not...

I don't understand the point you are trying to make?

So the trailer is incorrect, and there is no wolfpack hunting humans?
The others who claim to have seen it and confirm that wolves are hunting humans are lying?

I never questioned the production values, acting, etc., only the premise of a wolf attack in a non-fantasy setting.

If other people enjoy the film, that is great.

You know we spend trillions of dollars in public education, that is where these things should be taught, Hollywood is a not a substitute for anything other then entertainment. The fact that are hordes of ignorant people out there are not Hollywood's fault, it is their parent's or lack there of, or their troglodytic ways of thinking. A passing disclaimer no one care to read is no cure for all those.

I have to agree.

The big challenge is coming up with a plan to keep the trogs from making more trogs...
Otherwise, our species is screwed (eventually).

Haha! I should probably qualify that statement. I didn't like the film myself, but to say flat out it was bad film is only my opinion, I'm sure others enjoyed it immensely.

Plus, my brother happened to stop by last night with his latest purchases in the wine country, so the remark was no doubt fueled, just a bit, by some alcohol.
