Into The Wild

I just saw this movie last night. It's about a young guy who graduates from college, and just walks away from any further roles he's expected to play. Instead, he makes his way to Alaska, living the life of a tramp, meeting amazing people, and being free.

The movie totally enthralled me. I never saw a movie character I wanted more to be. It's definitely a film I recommend to anyone who has ever yearned to break free from the world.

My ex-girlfriend saw this and had the great idea to try to do the exact same thing. I told her good luck.....

needless to say she never tried it... she sure was a crazy bitch though :]

After I saw it i spent a couple days reading up on buddy the movie was based on. I mean I understand why he did it, but the movie kind of glamorizes his death... when there was so much he could have done to avoid it and to just live on in nature. I guess that risk was probably part of why he did it though, or at the very least, he did not care about risking his life to be (as he saw it) free.

But yeah, good flick, would watch again.

They guy was an idiot.

If you're gonna go live in the wild you should at least know what to do.

He starved to death only an hours walk away from safety.

This. The movie definitely glamorized his 'mission' and death, but really, he was just totally unpreprared for what he was taking on and for no real good reason except to be a rebel for the sake of rebelling.

For a movie though, great watch.

I've been thinking about watching this movie, but wasn't sure if I'd like it or not. This thread pushed me over the edge, I will definitely give it a try.

it was a good movie, if you have the mindset of a drifter. i like those kind of stories so i liked this movie up til the end.

what a dumbass, there was a camp like a mile away and he just layed down and died, and in real life it wasnt even from poison mushrooms, it was from starvation. complete moron.

Sorry to break it to ya but Eddie Vedder wasn't from Seattle, he was from Chicago and was part of the LA/SoCal music scene before joining PJ.

I do agree though some good bands did come from Seattle. IMO it's because Seattle sucks, and is boring, and the weathers crap, so people make up for it by spending hours and hours practicing their instruments in their parents bedrooms, cause there's nothing else to do...
