Movie Chaser: 127 Hours and Other Mountain Trials
11.04.10 by REELZ
Despite the movie's other draws, the essential reason for watching 127 Hours is to see James Franco's solution to being stuck between the proverbial rock and a hard place. Literally — it's even the title of the book the movie's based on. Aron Ralston's true story centers on the type of difficult choice that makes you think to yourself both “What would I do in a situation like that?” and “Before I go out hiking I'd better make sure my knife's not dull.” No slight to Ralston, but that might not be the toughest real-life choice ever put to celluloid. Alive shows what happens when a whole plane of people crashes, stranding its surviving passengers in the Andes for 72 days with dwindling food supplies and increasingly tasty-looking friends. You can watch it from the comfort of your warm, soft couch this month on CineMax.
