The Wilderness Family saga= A family grows tired of city life, so they head out into the wilderness to live as hippy-woodsmen. Kinda cheesy, but basically my all time favorite movies as a kid.

My Side of the Mountain= A 60's movie about a Canadian kid who wants to be like Thoreau, so he decides to run away from home for a year, to see if he can make it alone. He's also fairly scientific, so he conducts all sorts of experiments while he's out there, growing algae and what not. VERY cheesy, but it had beautiful scenery, a fair bit of bushcraft, and the music score wasn't half bad...especially the songs by Theodore Bikel which were written for the movie.

When I was a kid, had to be First Blood. John Rambo was such a badass....My dad took me to a knife and gun show and got me one those survival knifes. Which of course convinced me that I was a badass too...LOL.

1) Touching the Void: This is easily a must watch for anybody into mountaineering and/or survival stories and it is a real story. Awesome documentary. I heard the book was very good as well. 2) Into Thin Air: Though not the movie, I must mention this book. Another good book. 3) The Edge (as already mentioned) 4) I'm sure Into the Wild will be a good flick. The book was pretty good.

It would have to be "The Edge" and "Into the Wild".

Just recently saw Sanctum (not sure if it qualifies) based on a true story about a team that gets trapped in an underwater cave in Papua New Guinea. All they have is their scuba gear and they have to find a way out of the tunnel system. Fictionalized for the movie version I'm sure, but still it's pretty intense.
