I just sat through Buried, better yet I squirmed through it. I am claustrophobic, I hate the idea of being in a tight place. I was watching one of my favorite shows Dirty Jobs one time and they had to crawl under a house to film a scene. It was maybe a 18" clearing and they kept getting stuck. I couldn't handle it, I would panic and probable have a heart attack. So I squirmed my way through this one, checking the time left, hoping it would end soon. Not because it was a bad movie, but I just couldn't get comfortable. It was a great movie, I think if I would have thought about it I could have guest the ending. I didnt though, I just sat and wondered what the hell was going to happen.

I agree, it's a great movie but a truly uncomfortable movie. I'll never watch it again.

shortly after I saw that, I heard that 127 hours was coming out. I love Danny Boyle, but I was so traumatized after Buried, it'll be a long time before I'm up for watching another movie where someone is stuck somewhere for the entire movie.

How about a double feature with both? I think I'd lose my frickin' mind.

You may be right. Have you read anything on 127 hours? I saw the guy talking about how he got his arm off, the worst part for me was how he had to break the bones. Just listening to him talk about it was bad. Then I heard Danny put that scene in real time and to disturbingly correct detail. I dont know if I will be able to do it.

Did you know when he got to the nerves his knife was so dull that he put the knife under the nerve and pulled up as far as he could till it snapped.

OMG. That is crazy insane. I know it'll be a long time before I can watch that movie. Maybe after I'm moved and life has settled down again.

BTW, you should come visit me.
