127 Hours (Danny Boyle, 2010) A
This film really is inspiring and it gives you appreciation for life. While I found Franco's performance to be overrated, he did a good job and I have to give him props for holding his own without really having anyone to work off of. The cinematography and script are absolutely fantastic. There are some really cool shots from inside Ralston's veins or inside his water bottle. The actual amputation scene uses a blend of shocking images and sharp, startling sound effects to make one of the most intense film scenes I've seen in recent years. I never loved Danny Boyle but he's been hitting it out of the park with Slumdog Millionaire and 127 Hours.
