12- 127 Hours [8.0]

A mountain climber becomes trapped under a boulder while canyoneering alone near Moab, Utah and resorts to desperate measures in order to survive.

Perhaps I’m a sucker for a movie that features Sigur Ros’ music in its climatic scene (see: The Life Aquatic). Danny Boyle is one of the better filmmakers of his generation, and 127 Hours is an excellent addition to his filmography. James Franco has never been better as he is here. The scene–you know, that scene–is done so tastefully, and is fraught with some tension, that it may make you re-define what you consider horror in cinema.
