Why is it that the arri alexa footage has a grey tint to it? I think the footage has to be color corrected, but why does it first appear dark and grey?

Because color correction is basically the process of increasing contrast in parts of the image that you want to draw attention to. But to have headroom for increasing contrast you need to start with low contrast image with very even tonal distribution. That's what Arri LogC or Sony S-Log is — an attempt to record evenly distributed shades.
