I saw that movie for the first time during my winter in Antarctica. Super ill advised.

Not nearly as cold as you would think. If I remember correctly, the summer didn't get too far past zero. Plus the sun is out all the time which makes thing seem more pleasant. McMurdo was tropical compared to Amundsen Scott.

Winter sucked though.

I fell through the ice into a frozen lake in one of the dry valleys. Mostly my fault, but very spooky. Somebody grabbed me by my collar but I was wet up to my chest. Luckily it wasn't too windy so I was able to just shiver in my extra long underwear until my clothes dried out.
