This is what kept him alive and pushed him to escape the traumatic situation. Switch The Shift looks back at some memorable survival films.

  1. I love Cast Away. Tom Hanks is great and when he reunites with Helen Hunt its so moving. I always cry.

  2. Deliverance is classic so is apollo 13. open water 2 had an interesting problem but i didn’t like buried it was really dull. lol the only interesting thing about that film was this upbeat song at the end.

    oh and i loved rescue dawn – a very underrated film
    but christian bale with a terrific performance.

  5. rescue dawn was good – in fact the first time steven zahn wasn’t stoned!

  6. i loved this film and not just because i love james franco

  7. James Franco was the best film in this film… Shame that he’s in the same year as Colin Firth who is going to get the Oscar instead…
    However I thought this film was a case of style of substance in some places.
    Not a bad film… but it could have been a lot better.
    My review
