Into the Wild from Wikipedia

Into the Wild (film)

Into the Wild is a 2007 drama based on the 1996 non-fiction book of the same name by Jon Krakauer about the adventures of Christopher McCandless. It was directed by Academy Award winner Sean Penn, who also wrote the screenplay, and stars Emile Hirsch, Vince Vaughn, Jena Malone, Academy Award winner Marcia Gay Harden, Academy Award winner William Hurt and two-time Academy Award nominee Catherine Keener. It was given a limited released on September 21, 2007, and a wide release on October 19 .

Plot
Into the Wild tells the adventures of Christopher McCandless, a top student at Emory University and an athlete. After graduating, McCandless decides to give his entire $24,000 savings account to OXFAM and burn all the money in his wallet. As he hitchhikes all the way to Alaska to live in the wild, bringing only a .22 caliber rifle, a camera, several boxes of rifle rounds, some camping gear, and a small selection of literature—including a field guide to the region's edible plants, Tana'ina Plantlore. During his adventure, he encounters several unique people that change his life before he faces the dangers of wilderness.

You are right, that is the one I'm writing about. I very rarely go to movies, but this one is very good. The risks we take when young and how we think we are invincible, especially this young man.

From the book by the same name. Go see it on the big screen, so you can get the feel of Alaska. The story of a searcher who paid the ultimate price for his search. Good soundtrack too.

He goes solo on a kayak down the Colorado River, I found myself yelling “helmet” in the theater when he didn’t have one and entered the rapids and then two people in the film yelled “ helmet”. Ha!

Election

Starring Matthew Broderick and Reece Witherspoon; great flick!

Tammy Metzler: [her campaign speech] Who cares about this stupid election? We all know it doesn't matter who gets elected president of Carver. Do you really think it's going to change anything around here; make one single person smarter or happier or nicer? The only person it does matter to is the one who gets elected. The same pathetic charade happens every year, and everyone makes the same pathetic promises just so they can put it on their transcripts to get into college. So vote for me, because I don't even want to go to college, and I don't care, and as president I won't do anything. The only promise I will make is that if elected I will immediately dismantle the student government, so that none of us will ever have to sit through one of these stupid assemblies again!

Festival Express

Okay Okay, I'm repeating myself. Earlier I answered a question from Gratefulapril in another forum. She'd seen Express, but could not "name that toon"! Anyhoo,
It's really great to see Jerry and Janis together so young and HAPPY. Buddy Guy also kicks ass.
I read about the movie in Leshs' "Searching for the Sound"

And again.... Has anyone one seen the movie "Alice's Restaurant" from 1969?
I've got to find it. I will look on Netflix today!

I worked at a shop called "Picasso Moon" in VA. Cool stuff, but overpriced. Who could beat listening to The Dead allday, meeting cool people, not to mention the employee discount!
