Menonton movie yang boleh kita kaitkan dengan kehidupan dan hobi adalah satu tahap ‘enjoyment’ yang berbeza. Jadi article minggu ini kami sajikan senarai movies bertemakan ‘hiking’ dan ‘climbing’ dari Hollywood, Jepun dan Korea. Sedih juga ye masih tidak ada movie bertemakan ‘hiking’ di Malaysia ni. Tak mengapa lah, kita layan sketsa pendek #COREPEHAL di Youtube Core Republic je la sekarang. Jadi ‘grab your popcorn’ dan ‘enjoy’!
Touching the Void (2003)
North Face (2008)
127 Hours (2010)
The film, based on Ralston’s memoir Between a Rock and a Hard Place (2004), was written by Boyle and Simon Beaufoy, co-produced by Christian Colson and John Smithson, and scored by A. R. Rahman. Beaufoy, Colson, and Rahman had all previously worked with Boyle on Slumdog Millionaire (2008). 127 Hours was well received by critics and audiences and was runner up for six Academy Awards, including Best Actor for Franco and Best Picture.
The film’s title refers to the period of non-stop activity from when Ralston awoke on the day of his accident to when he was put under anesthesia during his rescue.
The Beckoning Silence (2007)
Joe Simpson, whose battle for survival featured in Touching the Void, travels to the Eiger to tell the story of one of mountaineering’s most epic tragedies. The Beckoning Silence tells of Kurz’s heroic battle for survival, but also forces Simpson to confront some fundamental questions of his own – why continue climbing when you have come so close to oblivion?
Everest: The Summit of the Gods (2016)
Set against the breathtaking backdrop of the Himalayas, Blindsight follows six Tibetan teenagers on their journey to climb the 23,000 foot Lhakpa Ri mountain in the shadow of Mount Everest. A dangerous journey soon becomes a seemingly impossible challenge made all the more remarkable by the fact that the teenagers are blind. The children are at times feared by their parents, scorned by villagers and deemed sinners by devout followers of Buddhism, and believed to be cursed. Helped by Sabriye Tenberken — a blind German social worker who established the first school for the blind in Lhasa — the students invite the famous blind mountain climber Erik Weihenmayer to visit their school after learning about his climb to the summit of Everest. Erik arrives in Lhasa and helps the students and their educators climb higher than they have ever been before.
Beyond the Heights (2015)
High and Hallowed: Everest 1963 (2013)
K2: Siren of the HImalayas (2012)
High Ground (2012)

The Eiger Sanction (1975)
K2: The Ultimate High (1991)
Into Thin Air: Death on Everest (1997)
Scream of Stone (1991)
The script was written principally by longtime Herzog production manager Walter Saxer, based on an idea from mountaineer Reinhold Messner, who Herzog had worked with in his documentary The Dark Glow of the Mountains. Herzog, who usually writes his own screenplays, believes that the script was weak, especially the dialogue, and says that he does not consider Scream of Stone to be his film.
The movie has elements drawn from the history of the supposed first conquest of the summit of Cerro Torre in 1959, by the Italian climber Cesare Maestri and his partner, the Austrian Toni Egger, who died during the descent.
Third Man on the Mountain (1959)
The Mountain (1956)
When they reach the downed plane, they find one badly injured survivor, an Indian woman (Kashfi). Chris wants to leave her there to die, but Zachary insists on bringing her down the mountain.
On the descent, Chris, ignoring Zachary’s warning, tries to cross an unsafe snow bridge and falls to his death. When Zachary gets the woman to his village, he tells everyone that he went up the mountain to rob the plane and forced his brother to go with him, but his friends (Trevor, Demarest) know better.
The Man Who Skied Down Everest (1975)
The ski descent was the objective of The Japanese Everest Skiing Expedition 1970. Six members of this expedition died. At the same time, another independent Japanese expedition (called The Japanese Mount Everest Expedition 1970) undertook a combined ascent of (a) the normal route, including Naomi Uemura who made the summit, and (b) the first attempt at the South-West Face, the tall black face on the movie poster with the Y-shaped snowy gully. Two members of this second expedition died.
