Netflix pick: The Edge

Netflix is an excellent deal in my opinion. For less than $10.00 per month you can access and watch thousands of movies, documentaries, program and more through your computer, TV, media player or entertainment system.

This week I am recommending an older movie called The Edge.

This movie lends itself to thinking about wilderness preparedness. Here is a summary:

When their plane crashes in the Alaskan wilderness, fashion photographer Bob (Alec Baldwin) and intellectual businessman Charles (Anthony Hopkins) must fight for their survival — and the gigantic, ravenous bear chasing them is not helping matters. Co-starring supermodel Elle Macpherson as Charles’s much-younger wife, this taut thriller features a screenplay packed with testosterone-heavy zingers from renowned scribe David Mamet.

Pop the popcorn!
