1. In a world of fictional badasses, Aron Ralston is the real deal. Dude broke his own arm, sawed threw with a dull knife, and then made it safety (and tons of accolades in the world). In the great badass spectrum, he's somewhere in the stratosphere.
2. Danny Boyle is one of the most interesting directors in the game right now. He continually challenges himself with his movies. He re-invented the zombie genre with "28 Days Later," melted people's hearts won some serious hardware with "Slumdog," and made the criminally underatted "Millions."
3. Climbing movies are always intense. See "Touching The Void."
