James Franco hid his textbooks in the crevices in the "canyon" set, to help keep his mind off of the claustrophobia factor of the teeny set, which he would be in for hours. See more »

Sometimes you see a film that really makes a impact on you...
For me '127 Hours' is that film.
I was drawn in by James Franco's portrayal of Aron Ralston, and wasn't disappointed at any point, his free spirit connects you with his character, causing you to experience his emotional and mental struggle later on.
Visually appealing, Danny Boyle uses some great techniques and shots to move the story on. Personally nothing feels forced or wrong, and the effects are believable and realistic.
As like most great films the perfect soundtrack accompanies it. The music adds a greater depth to this film, really showing how much care has gone into it.
This film is an experience and one that everybody should take. I dare you not to be moved by the time the credits roll.
