    Oh no, damn it, yet another stupid movie about
    a bunch of idiots who willingly go do something stupid,
    then survive, and now we're all expected to marvel at
    their heroism?

    I am sick and tired of that idiocy. Movies about heroism
    and the triumph of the human spirit based on true
    stories where the protagonists put themselves into
    dangerous situations not only deserved to be mocked but
    the people who get emotional watching them deserved to
    have their nails removed with pliers.

    Hey, idiot, you got yourself into a risky situation by your own
    will, don't expect me to pat you on the back. Expect me to
    consider you a jerk and a lucky idiot.

    If you put your money or get all teary eyed at such sad
    spectacle, do me a favor and kill yourself. You are as stupid
    as the people in the stories.

    That is all.

    Shackleton was a great hero who wanted to push the boundaries of human knowledge and achievement. If it weren't for people like him, willing to risk their lives, to further man's knowledge, we' still be eating berries and hunting rabbits.

    Shackleton can't compare to a bunch of middle aged suburban
    white dudes paying for a thrill (which thousands have done before)
    and then getting bit back by their idiocy.

    Yes, and if Everest had been about Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay it would've been a worthwhile film. Now, it's about a bunch of preppy tourists not getting enough of a come-uppance.

    Seitse, you might be not really constructive in your style, but you have a vary valid point here.

    I haven't heard about the film other than what I read here, but it seems it is off my to be seen list without entering it.
