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.

Can anyone tell me the name of this film....

Its a kids film I think, about a family who go paddling/camping in the US and they end up getting held hostage for some reason. Whilst they travel the rest of the way down river whilst being held hostage they try to escape.

Sorry its a bit vague but that is about all I can recall of it.

Few of my favourite outdoors films:
Dances with Wolves
Crocodile Dundee
Into the Wild

There are others I like, but I have a poor memory when it comes to remembering the names of the films.


I never got into Last of the Mohichans for some reason.
River Wild with Meryl Streep
 
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 :(

How about 'Ravenous'?

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