    I preferred Airport live.

    Yes, live.

    Recorded it to watch another time when I have mtfu. Always felt it was not a film I wanted to see, even though I know it is just acting and tomato sauce.

    Read the book and ended up cheering on the rock, good grief he comes across as a dick.

    Glad you said that. I thought there was something wrong with me not caring if he gets out or not.

    Saw it for the first time last night. Thought it was ok. Touching The Void is a far better ‘fight for survival’ film IMO.

    It’s going to get nasty, isn’t it?

    Just chatting to a guy at the wall who was actually trapped by a dislodged rock on a climb in Yorkshire last weekend. Fire brigade were called and had to jack the rock away. He was pretty lucky not to be more hurt than he is …. Just scrapes and bruises.

    I’d love to go riding in the sandstone wilderness on this film! A proper get away from it all. Would take a decent penknife though!

    wilderness needs trees and other green stuff, not sand.

    not true – definition is ‘An uncultivated, uninhabited, and inhospitable region’ ‘An extensive area, such as a desert or ocean, that is barren or empty’

    Thought the book was good. Pretty accomplished climber which they don’t touch on in the film really. Just unlucky with that boulder… Daft not to leave a route with some one though..

    Best thing about that there film is “Festival”, the Sigur Ross track playing when he finally gets free…

    I agree takisawa2. It’s not enough of an idea/storyline to make for a decent film I think, although it’s a nice try, but left me a bit meh. You just don’t care for the guy. Into The Wild on the other hand – pretty good!

    call me heartless but at one point i said out loud “just get on with it and chop your arm off”

    My trouble was I kept on thinking that if only he had told someone where he was going it would have been a much shorter film, and I agree I felt no empathy as a character

    Well, I liked it.

    And I actually preferred it for a change that he wasn’t a perfect human being, but just an ordinary bloke.

    We’re so used to the Hollywood cliches these days that the truth, even when as remarkable and shocking as this, can seem a little disappointing.

    I haven’t seen it since it came out. Dude drank his own wee, didn’t he? Then there’s an hour of hallucinations, choppage, roll end credits.

    Point Break was better.

    No. No it wasn’t.

    In the book he came across as a real risk taker. Nowt wrong with that but he’d put himself and others in danger more than once through his badly thought out approach to the risk. Not that he deserves to lose his arm for it but something like this was bound to happen at some point.

    It’s a good survival story but makes a lousy film IMHO.

    I’d rather be strapped to a Tory and forced to watch the collected speeches of Nigel Lawson than watch that childish, ill conceived, mindless, bromantic, stinking pile of thinly disguised rhinocerous toss ever, ever again.

    Mamma Mia! is a better film than Point Break.

    In fact, if you gave a Go Pro to a stable boy and asked him to film an entire day of shovelling shite, THAT would be a better film than Point Break.

    The only film worse than Point Break is Top Gun.
    But it really is a very close thing.

    I think that’s (sort of) what I said, Rusty Spanner πŸ™‚

    Rusty and DezB, you’re on dangerous grounds there!

    You’ve obviously missed the majesty of Bigelow’s masterpiece. So [dons schoolmaster hat] here comes your lesson…

    Point Break is a classic of its era, featuring career defining performances from Swayze, Reeves, Petty and Busey. The plot is original, emotionally moving and ΓΌber intelligent, the pacing is just the right blend of cop-ethics-pathos and seat-of-pants-flying. Plus, it’s got bank robbers dressed like former presidents… were you watching the same film?

    Compared to Point Break, 127 Hours is just a wee-drinking dude who chops his arm off. Nuff said. πŸ˜‰

    I had you better than that fillulm buff. I Dissapoint. it is pretty shit. Each to their own πŸ˜€

    I wouldn’t say “just unlucky with that boulder“…Samurai is right: He takes so many risks and does so many stupid things in the book (fighting a bear for his food, jumping into a frozen river, leading his friends into an avalanche) it’s actually a miracle he survived long enough to get his hand trapped.

    I did enjoy both the book and film though πŸ™‚

    Having read the book I thought the guy was a doosh, If I was one of his friends there is now way i would go any ware with him he’s a liability to him self and anyone around him. I swore i wouldn’t watch the film, but one damp evening i found myself stuck between A rack and a hard place (my Missis and her mother) one with the remote the other insisting i spend time with them. they put it on, i cried a little then contemplated drinking my own wee to see if it would make me hallucinate.

    Did…did rusty just say Top Gun is a crap film?

    TOP GUN!!!?? A pure celebration of 80’s machoism combined with a good old fashioned American display of superiority, white teeth and fast planes?

    IT’S GOT MEG RYAN IN IT!!!!!

    And a GPZ900. You could see Tom Cruise, right?
    No, No, No, No, No.

    @ samuri – I get the feeling that Rusty and DezB are the kind of dudes who think Mike Leigh’s Blethyn-laden travesty ‘Secrets & Lies’ is a proper classic. πŸ™„

    There is nothing,nothing ‘macho’ about Top Gun, unless you consider the video for YMCA by Village People to encompass all that is noble about masculinity.

    And Tom Cruise has never, ever, been in a good film.

    Not once.
    Ever.

    Apart from Valkyrie & Tropic Thunder, but that was just coincidence.

    I dunno, man, he was pretty badass in Born on the Fourth of July.

    An appaling film.

    Overwrought, bombastic nonsense, as is usual for Oliver Stone.

    ….and Danny Boyle is from here in Radcliffe.

    I watched the film with my cycling buddy and his wife who are both medics. The cinema was empty apart from one other couple; when my buddy turned round he recognised the bloke as a colleague, a general surgeon from the hospital!

    Well, it’s no ‘Nuts in May’, but I did enjoy it. πŸ˜€

    Hang on! Have I been slagged off? for not liking Point Break? Ha!

    Mike Leigh’s Blethyn-laden travesty ‘Secrets & Lies’ is a proper classic.

    Never seen it. Not a Mike Leigh fan (apart from Nuts in May & Abigail’s Party (if that was him))

    Born on the Forth of July is great. So is “Legend”… and Minority Report.
    Top Gun – didn’t make it to the end. Cocktail? Why would I watch that? Girl’s film innit.

    When 127 Hours first came out, someone on here suggested you watch it on re-wind, then it becomes a heart warming story of a disabled bloke who finds an arm jammed in a rock which fits and cures his limb deficiency. I’ve not watched it though so don’t know if this is true, I’d rather watch Top Gun or Cocktail!

    Anyway, any film which uses Free Blood on the soundtrack is ok with me.
