Free Solo | The Climb That Takes You For A Ride

Thursday, January 10th, 2019

the kids and i went to the ted rogers hot docs cinema in THE6 to see Free Solo which is such a great documentary about Alex Honnold and his assent up El Captain in Yosemite National Park.  what a ride.  10/10 from me.  it has a rating on IMDb of 8.6 and a meta score from critics of 83.  this park is on my bucketlist.  it just looks incredible to visit and camp and hike.  i will see this movie again when it hits the theatre in PTBO and i try and drag out everyone i know and i will jump at the chance to see it on IMAX any day.

Follow Alex Honnold as he becomes the first person to ever free solo climb Yosemite’s 3,000ft high El Capitan Wall. With no ropes or safety gear, he completed arguably the greatest feat in rock climbing history

alex has a witty sense of humor and him meeting Sandi who is just adorable changes the dynamics when you think of it from her perspective as she falls in love with him and doesn’t want to stop his dream.  can’t believe that 3 guys first climbed this rockface in the 50’s with rope and it took them about 46 days to complete it and alex did it it in under 4 hours.  my mind is blown.

go see it.  i posted the trailer and also a interview below that.

In Progress – List3 | 1 of 101 | Knock My Movie List Down to 300 Titles | Flicks w/ Chips + Dips

Monday, March 20th, 2017

As of August 20th, 2016 my watch list is 444 movies. 

As of March 22th, 2017 my watch list is 418 movies.

This is the first task in my 101 Things To Do In A 1001 Days which I have over two years left to complete to get my list down to 300 titles.  I will do this one.  My goal is a movie every 2-3 days.  My list grows as I add titles and sometimes I take a couple away if I’ve gone completely cold on a title and would never click to watch it online.

Just wanted to have a spot where I could list some of the movies that I want to see. I like to ask people for some recommendations and I stick them in Evernote to keep track of. I will have to set it up better and bring some to the top and focus on those first. I’m sure there is 400 movies not listed. Life is long… I’ll try to list a sentence or two after I see them…

Here is a list that will grow of some of the movies that I want to watch.

The movies I have watched since being separated are listed below in this blog post…
