127 Hours

A ad for the movie 127 Hours just ran on the television.   I was aware that a movie had been made of the subject but I was unaware of the title.  I have heard of the title on a few occasions and, based on the title alone, I was not all that interested.  Listening to that ad just now, I think I figured out why.

127 Hours sounds like a long, long movie in a way that 48 Hours, 28 Days and Nine Months do not.  Maybe because when I hear 48 hours I immediately translate that into two days.

No major release movie is going to be of a length measured in days or months.   But movies measured in hours are routine.  127 hours is too many.
