    I don't think I can be ever impressed by anything in a movie theater after I saw this one.

    True. You KNOW that nothing is Special Effects. No stunt backup. No green screen.

    great movie. I could of done without the drama / awkwardness between Honnold and his "tracking to be girlfriend" buying a fridge and the like.

    A couple days ago I was hanging at the brewery. Alex busts in the door with big eyes and asks me where the bathroom is. I responded, "Alex, don't you have a poop tube?" I then pointed him in the right direction.

    He dropped his deuce and left. Was hilarious.

    I recorded it on Friday, and watched it last night, my wife loved it too, but I missed everything after enduro corner as the PVR shut off.

    Sunday was the third time I watched.....Once in the theater, second IMAX, last on my couch with beer in hand. The part that kills me every time, is at the end when Mark Synott (legit alpine/big wall badass) asks “what’s next? What are you going to do now?” And Honnold tells him he’s going to go hangboard.....Synott says something to the effect that most people who did what AH just did would take the afternoon off.... Fucking classic. BTW, Synott’s book, The Impossible Climb, was released today. Will buy.

    Holy fuck. Watched on the iMac but now have to see it on the big screen. Most impressed by the finish. No staged people, letting El Cap speak for itself...

    Free Solo

    I just watched it and now I can’t sleep. I seriously got an adrenaline dump from the last 25 minutes.

    The Dawn Wall on Netflix is really good.

    Tommy Caldwell is amazing and the story is good.

    He threw a kidnapper off a cliff and later chopped off a finger and became a better climber.

    Wow.

    It’s good. I liked it as much as Free Solo. I watched a behind the scenes video of the camera work. Those dudes are the real deal, hanging off ropes 2k ft off the ground in winter for hours.

    I think I liked Dawn Wall a bit more because there was more climbing. Both were outstanding though.

    Watched Dawn Wall last night. Amazing story. So much more than just one climb.

    I’m looking forward to seeing Free Solo as well.

    Watched Free Solo on Hulu last night and Dawn Wall on Netflix. Both outstanding films, and different interpretations of what “free” climbing is.

    Didn’t think I’d be able to sit through Free Solo at first. But Honnold’s head is on another planet. His mental game is so strong, and his perfectionist approach made it seem like a perfectly reasonable thing to do by the end of the movie.

    Free Solo

    Watched Dawn Wall......compared to Free Solo....Both are totally incredible achievements....Free Solo definitely more so, because it’s obviously free solo.......but I liked Dawn Wall better as a TV/Movie watch....

    Caldwells 2nd wife is hotter than his first....”total upgrade”....not as hot as Free Solo wife.....but totally a better attitude....supportive....

    Both were great.....but really preferred Dawn Wall......cuz of the supportive way his friends and family were portrayed.

    Pretty much agree with everything you say. Both great movies. Kind of interesting how they came out on top of each other. Both Tommy and Alex are fascinating characters. Something about Tommy really strikes a chord though. He just seems like such a nice genuine guy, in addition to being the most badass all around rock climber on the planet.

    Behind the scenes of The Dawn Wall. The crew are badass as well. Hanging thousands of feet in the air for hours on end.
