No Deliverance? I know that's an obvious choice, but it's an obvious choice for a reason. It's the most iconic example of the genre.
Come to think of it, MOST films are about surviving various disasters, criminals, mafia thugs, and obviously "Alien" and "The Thing" don't count, so we'll stick with surviving 'nature' as opposed to the 'world of shit' survival of "Full Metal Jacket", "Apocalypse Now" or "Dr Strangelove". Well then, where's "Ravenous"? Vampires are kinda nature. Ok. "The Earthling", "Greystoke", "Castaway" and "Walkabout" (the Roeg films), "Dersu Uzala", "Aguire Wrath of God", "Lifeboat", "Gerry", "Race for Your Life Charlie Brown", and, of course, "2001", a nature of sorts.

this topic made me think of the russian roulette part of The Deerhunter...pretty strong survival "part" of a film IMO
also I am Legend only if it had been made as good as the book...
Jan 23 - 06:04 PM
Should "Jaws" or "Road Warrior" count?
Jan 23 - 07:03 PM
Best!!! Hahahaha MadMax 2 rocked my world. Forget the Kid...how those goons survived Home Alone 1 does my head in year after year...some people are made of stern stuff...

loved 127 hours, rescue dawn, cast away, and into the wild... the way back was only ok... haven't seen the others
Jan 23 - 06:16 PM
A lot of great films. Loved 127 Hours and Cast Away. Buried and Open Water, not so much. Sactum was a decent man vs wild flick that came out last year.. nothing groundbreaking but good popcorn fun.

this list is missing a zombie movie
Jan 23 - 07:23 PM
Rescue Dawn is amazing, Zahn was brilliant.
Jan 23 - 07:53 PM
what about Alive (1993)?
Jan 23 - 08:48 PM
I love the Cast Away. It is one man movie with the volleyball.
Jan 23 - 10:05 PM
I wouldn't call Buried a survival movie when he didn't survive...
Jan 23 - 10:23 PM

Jan 27 - 05:24 AM
Steve, you're five days late on this whole thread.

My favorite is left off the list: The Poseidon Adventure (the orginal w/ Gene Hackman). The Edge, Jeremiah Johnson, and (a childhood favorite) Far from Home: The Adventures of Yellow dog were good too.

Jan 24 - 12:19 AM
