Free Solo. 7/10

Very good documentary film about the free solo climber (no ropes) Alex Honnold, although unless you are interested in the field of climbing to some extent you might find parts of it a bit slow. That said, the final 30 minutes are just stunning cinematography and edge of seat tension. It is awe inspiring stuff. My missus is not remotely into climbing, but thought it was brilliant too, and the earlier parts of the film do help set up just how insanely risky and hard this achievement is.

Seeing him fall off multiple times, at one very tough section, while practicing on ropes...just adds to the tension of the final solo attempt without ropes.

For those who have seen him interviewed etc, the film gives you a much better insight into his personality than the interviews or TED talks and not in the way I expected. He seems awkward usually, but sort of normal enough, and I expected the film to make him seem more every day and normal, as that is what the trailer suggests. It doesn't. He is fucking odd. :lol:

There is definitely more missing than just the lack of fight or flight response in his amygdala. No idea what his girlfriend is drawn to really, as it clearly seems genuine, and she's been around when his money has provided nothing for them, plus she is not married and stands to get nothing from it, yet is trying to get him to consider stopping. That said, he gives 1/3 of all his income to charitable work in his foundation. Decent person, just seems incapable of normal emotions or human connections. I don't think he feels grief or would feel it if his "closest" friend died, and he doesn't really think him dying should upset anyone too badly either.

Definitely try and see it.

I really, really want to see it. It's so annoying, if they said pay £20 now to see stream/download, I'd do it on the spot. Hell I'd probably do it at £40. Can't find a stream, or link anywhere, paid or free. Nowhere remotely close is showing it.

From what I've seen, he's capable of it, but just switches it off and processes it differently to others. He doesn't come across as autistic as such, just odd, like you said. Super nice guy though by all accounts.

The Mist: 3/10
The entire time I found myself yelling, "What are you doing?!" Almost everything the characters did was "horror film stereotypical". As monsters ran towards them, they stood there and screamed instead of running. The crazy lady trying to kill a ten year old child somehow had acquired a huge band of followers within 24 hours who also felt that somehow God would appreciate it it they stabbed the child to death, along with the Army guy. It made absolutely no sense why anyone would listen to her at all. They should have duct taped her mouth shut from the beginning. Overall, I was extremely annoyed by how predictable this movie was and how I felt like I needed to dumb myself down in order to watch it. I couldn't think logically about anything that was happening or else I would have turned it off, so I had to pretend that it was convincing just so I could finish watching it. The ending made me totally nauseas. No one would EVER do what this man did. You battle the monsters for days and risk your life repeatedly and then you think that running out of gas means QUIT?! No, you would not shoot two old people, your own ten year old son, and the woman holding him and spare yourself. That is ridiculous. The personalities that these people had we not the type of personalities that would accept giving up, and the fact that they didn't join the crazy lady's band of insanity shows that the man was not a psycho and would not have shot his child in the head and not himself. I realize it was to spare them from the monsters, but no one in their right mind could do that. Every "mission" he went on was life threatening, and all of those people put their lives at risk by getting in that car, so why commit suicide?? They wouldn't. It was stupid

Nah dont really dabble if remember i think i watched VU by chance but it was the shit i can see the appeal of climbing and got a lot of respect for people that do it free climbers need wheelbarrows to carry their balls

Show dem balls bro
Bird Box.

Meh. 3 out of 5 maybe. Low budget as fuck. Disappointing that they tease so much with visually trying to figure out what is going on, without giving away too much of the story.

Edit: Sandy Bullock kicks that ass though no doubt.
