127 Hours; great movie

127 Hours Full Trailer from TheSouthSider on Vimeo.

I sat down and watched 127 Hours this afternoon and loved every heart-wrenching minute of it. It's a story based on what happened to Mountaineer, Aaron Ralston while hiking in Moab, Utah in 2003. Aaron spent 5 days at the bottom of a ravine with his arm pinned between an 800 lb boulder and the ravine wall. Ultimately he makes an incredible sacrifice in order to survive. I won't spoil it for you, but you really need to see this movie. As a climber and hiker this movie really spoke to me about how quickly things can turn from magical to miserable when alone in the wilderness.
