Episode 55 Outdoor Adventures in Cinema
March 12, 2010
After watching this years Academy Awards I started thinking about how much enjoyment I’ve had over the years watching films set in the great outdoors. Some of my favorite scenes have been shot in fabulous locations throughout the world and on days when I just can’t get outside; I head to the DVD cabinet to fulfill my desire to get out and smell the pines or feel the frosty chill of a mountain breeze. I compiled a list of my top adventure films from my DVD collection. I know you’ve probably got your own list of favorite adventure films like I do.
Hollywood’s been great at entertaining us over the years and the stories they’ve told satisfy an inner desire to get out into the wild and experience nature in all its fury; epic stories of pursuit, survival, tragedy, greed, revenge and adventure.
In this episode I talk about my favorite outdoor adventure films and feature some movie trailers and music.
Here’s some links to some of the films mentioned
- Vertical Limit
- Third Man on the Mountain
- Mysterious Island
- Ernest Goes To Camp
- The Mountain
