when a stellar bomb is triggered, very little will happen at first. then a spark will pop into existence and it’ll hang in there for an instance, hovering in space. and then it will split into two. and then it’ll happen again and again, and again. a big bang in a small scale. a new star born out of a diamond. i think it’ll be beautiful. no, i’m not scared.
What do you see?
There will be nothing to show that we were ever here but stardust.

Title: 127 Hours (USA, 2010) ★★★½
Director: Danny Boyle
Starring: James Franco
Date Viewed: December 23, 2010
Summary: A mountain climber becomes trapped under a boulder while canyoneering alone near Moab, Utah and resorts to desperate measures in order to survive.
I’ve never been a huge Danny Boyle fan, but 127 Hours was surprisingly organic, despite the contrived exaggeration in Aron Ralston’s character (played by James Franco). I loved the saturation of the Utah wilderness, but felt that the script was a little shallow and could’ve been able to bring about a lot more emotion than it did.
