No but can't wait.

Review HERE it actually sounded good.

I can't wait to watch this film, it's based on a true story, sounds chilling.

However I still find it bloody annoying and stupid that this is released in the UK 4 months after it was released in the US.

It's only two months after. Exactly two months in fact. The US release date was November 5th, the UK release date is January 5th.

It's been advertised quite a bit so I assume this will be a good film, it does look very gripping.

gmphmac 01-01-2011 10:53

This looks brilliant. Can't wait to see it!

eduble 04-01-2011 20:30

This is out today i THINK :)

jaimesw 05-01-2011 13:00

Going to see it this afternoon

Had no fancy for this but heard the director, Danny Boyle, talking about it on Steve Wright's Radio 2 show yesterday and the way he was explaining it made it a lot more appealing.

cheeks 05-01-2011 19:26

Seen it today, very good but not one for the faint hearted.....

Excellent film, and in my opinion a better film than the fantastic 'Buried' (which it's bound to be compared to). James Franco's performance was very Oscar worthy.

Literally everyone in the cinema was squirming and cringing at THAT bit (except me...i must be desensitized or something, lol).

I went to see it this afternoon, and have to say it is a really gripping movie! I absolutely loved it! Can't wait to see it again when it is released on DVD. I loved it so much in fact, I went and bought Aron Ralston's book.

eduble 05-01-2011 22:02

Just been watching the 127 hours special on film4, looks good.

Damien. 06-01-2011 01:31

Some what surprised it was a 15 as well, given the bbfc extended advice says:

"Those intending to see the film are advised that [it] carries the potential to cause distress and physical discomfort."

soapfan_1973 06-01-2011 07:58

I think this is the one where a lot of people walked out of the test screenings because of that one scene

Hera 06-01-2011 09:41

Looking forward to this. The movie has been getting some very good reviews.

I think James Franco is one of the most talented actors around. The movies I have seen him in, I have very much liked his performances. He comes across as a great, genuine guy too.

Stupid_Head 06-01-2011 10:24

I've only watched James Franco in Freaks and Geeks and that crappy aftershave adverts on at the moment, has he improved that much that people are talking about Oscars then?

Hugh Jboobs 06-01-2011 10:28

Sounds great! Going to see it on Saturday, looking forward to it.

We're big fans of 127 Hours!

Have a look at our review and interview with the great Danny Boyle:-

I saw it last night - was in a small screen but it was sold out. It was a good film - to the point and brilliantly acted.

JasonWatkins 06-01-2011 16:03

I really liked it. For me, I didn't think it was the 5 star epic that some reviewers have tried to imply but I did enjoy it.

If you compare this to Buried, I actually preferred that film to this because I found I got more attached to Ryan Reynold's character and the ending really affected me more than this - probably because you already knew what was going to happen here.

As far as "that" scene goes .. I only really cringed once when ..

.. but other than that, it didn't really make me queasy or anything like that.
