    Although a review I read said, "if I wanted to watch a dour old man have a terrible time with wolves, I’d get a season ticket at Molineux"

    Watched Stalingrad last night. See link: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0108211/

    Not too shabby a film, enjoyable and dramatic enough. While the scenes in the snow and such were on all I kept doing was looking at thier kit. It's a gritty film, sort of on par with Saving Private Ryan in a way, but a lot bleaker. Not to be confused with Enemy at the Gates with Jude Law, which is also a really good film but less outdoorsy, more like crawling about in the rubble.

    Good film if you don't mind Subs...

    Just read the entire thread, thanks for some great ideas.

    Ones I'd recommend..

    Waterworld - Kevin Costner - Mildly outdoors/survival related.

    A Good Year - Some beautiful scenery, that's about it. I love the film.

    The Quick & The Dead - Others seem to be throwing in westerns, so here's another. One of my faves.

    Then of course there's good old David Attenborough.

    Blues Brothers - Too epic not to mention.
