Danny Boyle’s 127 Hours, which opens today, is the real life story of Aron Ralston, a young hiker who was forced to cut off his arm after being pinned by a boulder in a remote Utah canyon.

It just makes you realize how the things we take for granted are so complex when you have to program something to do it.
