I just found out they shot with DSLRs as well as the Si-2k, anyone got the chance to see it, or know how it was all shot (maybe an AC article?).

It seems like a very fascinating style of shooting, very fast-paced, very quick, really attention grabbing like Slumdog.

Yes, buy the Dec. AC magazine.

From this and interviews, it seems that Si2K was used for most of it but 35mm was used as well, along small digital cams for some shots, one being a Nikon DSLR if I recall correctly. Slumdog was similar with Si2k and 35mm mixed.

I ordered the Blu-ray of 127 Hours from Amazon and they gave me a free video on demand copy. :D

Watched the Blu-ray last night. It was really good. The amputation scene was a bit sickening though :( . I was never impressed with James Franco in the Spider-man Movies, however after seeing his performance in 127 Hours I will be revisiting his other movies with a more open mind.

I think James Franco is going to blossom and grow, just like Matt Damon and Leonardo Di Caprio.

I really enjoyed Franco's all too short scene in The Green Hornet. He was such an butt. Indeed his and Christoph Waltz scene was the highlight of the whole movie.

As far as the amputation scene is concerned. I found the breaking of the arm more upsetting than the actual cutting. Something about cracking bones..ewww

Speaking of blood and gore. How come we look away whenever we see it on TV, but when confronted in real life we don't even flinch? I can sometimes feel sickened by bloody scenes in a movie, however as a Red Cross first aider in a night club I had to deal with stab wounds and even someone filleted by a broken beer bottle and the blood and guts never bothered me, I just got on with helping the victim. Strange.

It's basic human nature kicking in. The instinct to help an injured person.

As a kid I used to enjoy movies with a lot of blood and gore, however now I don't really like it so much.

I too would much rather watch a movie that doesn't rely on endless gore and projectile vomiting.

I didn't feel the amputation scene was gratuitous. He thought long and hard before making that decision. I really felt for the guy. I wonder if he ever caught up with those 2 girls?

I'm exactly the same. Take that scene when Mr Glass (Samuel L. Jackson) falls down the steps at the football ground, I could feel every gag reflex working overtime on that. I actually felt queasy listening to that scene.
