    for a turue hollywood blockbuster, The Big Sky with Kirk (I'm still here) Douglas, rafting up the Missouri in 1800's. Love the scene where he looses his finger...

    'Jim Deakins is a frontiersman and Indian trader who is making a perilous journey with a group of other men up the Missouri River to get a large haul of furs from friendly Blackfoot Indians' IMDB

    Defiance of the new crop of movies.

    and one about a guy befriending Seberian tigers and living with them, can't remember the actor or movie....

    Ah! IMDB and guess work and it's been mentioned already...When the North Wind blows... grizzly man himself.

    Ok I could get boo'd out....but what about the Postman with Kevin Costner?
    I admit it is cheesy but I am probably one of the few who like it considering its rating with Rotten Tomatoes.

    Thanks Boatman, thats the one. Just away to rewatch it today. :)

    There is also The Road with Viggo Mortensen, bit grim but interesting story.

    The Postman was massively disappointing as the book by David Brin was so, so good. Such a waste of good material :(

    Never read the book. How much different is it to the film?

    How about 'Ravenous'?

    IMDB: "Captain John Boyd's promotion stations him at a fort where a rescued man tells a disturbing tale of cannibalism."

    one of my alltime favourite movies, cannae beat robert carlisle! or maybe thats because iv been called Hamish Macbeth most of my life :lmao:

    From my perspective, pretty different. Almost all of the interesting, thought-provoking elements of the book were lost. Some potentially truly terrifying villains and one hero(augmented humans) were lost. I'd have loved to see them in any film made from the book.

    Take a look here:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Postman

    and here:
