YMMV / 127 Hours

  • Alternative Character Interpretation: Is Aron a hero who exemplifies the strength of the human will to survive, an idiot who paid a very dear price for a stupid mistake, or both at once?
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: Festival by Sigur Ros springs to mind. The music alone makes the last scene of the movie extremely touching, heartwarming and awesome all at the same time. Catharsis, indeed.
  • Nausea Fuel: Yes, Aron is eventually forced to drink his own urine.
    • After he frees himself, he's so desperate for water that he drinks water from a stagnant pool with tons of dead bugs in it.
  • What An Idiot: As the film itself points out, the first rule of hiking, rock-climbing, or any other adventure sport: make sure someone knows where you're going.
