A Grusome “127 Hours”

127 Hours is a true story about a rock climber whose arm gets stuck under a rock and he eventually has to cut it off with a dull knife. A well made tension-filled movie with about 5 minutes of the most realistic gore of a guy cutting his arm off that made the person I saw the movie with feel a bit nauseous.

James Franco really shows his acting chops in this one.

  1. Just got back from seeing “Super 8.” It was fun. A cast full of likeable kids like “E.T.” with a similar kind of look and feel but a tad more creepy and less iconic.

  2. Agree that the arm-cutting was truly gory. I was worried the film would be padded out until that scene but I think Boyle did well with it. Very much worth a watch!
