Cinema Smackdown 21: The Grey/Midnight in Paris
By Bret Dorman and Kate Peterson
The Grey features (more or less) Liam Neeson fighting a bunch of wolves. Want more animal on human fighting? Take this Shark vs Undead Zombie fight from the classic Italian film, Zombie. Note: features a cameo by a pair of boobs:
We are going to try something new. We here at Cinema Smackdown hate cutting a movie conversation short when we still have things to talk about. This week we have really good, specific, in depth conversations about both our Theatrical Release Review and Theme Review. So we split the podcast up into two episodes. The Theatrical release will still have the games and miscellaneous stuff after it, but the Theme Reviews will now be their own ‘bonus’ content for people who are still interested in having conversations about these great films. Any feedback about our reviews, format, or games is greatly appreciated.
This weeks agenda:
Greetings: Start! – 1:05
The Grey Review: 1:05 – 26:45
The Grey Spoilers!: 26:45 – 45:15
Fun Time (20(1) ?s, Genre sMash): 45:15 – 1:12:05
Misc: 1:12:05 – 1:15:05

Midnight in Paris features an American who is a bit out of place in France. Check out Coneheads for a movie about people ‘from France’ who are a bit out of place in America and to see what Jason Alexander looks like with hair:
