Movie Club: 127 Hours

Hello Movie clubbers,

I made a executive decision(lol K Rock) and picked "127 Hours" which is available on DVD everywhere including Netflix. We will meet online and review this film on Friday, April 29, 2011
I will do a post that day so we can give our opinions. I hope this doesn't interfere with anyone's viewing of the royal wedding. :sarcasm: okay not really.

Many of us have already seen most of the Academy Award nominated films. I'm thinking of doing an additional post were we can give our opinions about the movies we've seen so we can move on to other great films. The only movies I haven't seen are "127 hours", "Black Swan" and "The Kids are Alright", which I plan to remedy by the end of this month. In the future we will just choose between two films.

Plot: A mountain climber becomes trapped under a boulder while canyoneering alone near Moab, Utah and resorts to desperate measures in order to survive.

Thanks to all who've joined. I'm looking forward to the reviews, opinions and comments!

Sounds good! Let me move this up in my Netflix queue. The Kids are Alright is next on my lists followed by Black Swan!

I've seen the other two you mentioned, but I just sent this one back on Netflix. Not because I didn't want to see it, but I had it for quite a while and didn't get around to watching it. :) I'll pick it up at the Blockbuster machine,I have a bunch of free codes.

-How's the new job??

Ya know, I guess I haven't been going to the movies lately, because I haven't seen any of the movies you were talking about.

I went to see this when it came out. Really enjoyed it. The "big scene" is not for the squeamish. That dude is a real bad-a$$.

I've seen all those Oscar movies except for Winter's Bone and The King's Speech.

I know we were supposed to meet back today and discuss online. Do we come to the original post or will you create a new one?
