Re: All is Lost

My biggest problem so far is that in the preview I do not see a dodger or bimini. What offshore sailor does not have a bimini at least? Guess it would have messed up the camera angles a bit... I still hold high hopes for the movie though. Will be there on opening day to see it first hand!
Also should note: tomorrow is football! Yay. Go Falcons!

Exactly. All hope will be lost for doing some long-term cruising.

Re: All is Lost

"This is an SOS call" probably means the film's writer and director lacked competent technical advice during the production. I wonder what that says about the rest of the film. I think I 'll wait for Netfliks rather than put $20 at risk.

A warning to those working on convincing a reluctant spouse to go sailing....keep them ignorant of films like this or you'll never get them aboard.

It's stories like this that resulted in having to buy a steel boat. And even then it took years for the "What if we hit a container?" to stop.

Re: All is Lost

I can't believe that there were 5 pages of comments on a movie that isn't out yet. Remwember it is a movie.
Millions went to see a movie called Iron Man about a guy that could fly due to a suit?
Hundreds of milliond saw james bond movies where he always shoots somebode and nobody hits him with machine gun fire, again they are movies. movies are for entertainment and this one looks like good entertainment. The End.

Yes, and I bet secret agent forums are full of complaints that the grip on his pistol could not be used, and all real secret agents don't drink martini's or some such details! Of course we don't know about that because those forums are ahh secret. We don't get a move very often that prominently features a sailboat. So let the speculation go on.

If you read the linked story, the Director is an avid sailor, enough to have chosen a pretty specific boat to sink. Don't get all twisted up in accuracy because this is not a movie for sailors, it is for the masses who would not understand the proper protocol, or what kind of tools one uses while atop the mast or whether said boat has a Bimini (?). Seriously, questioning the quality of a movie based on a few technical details is like telling Chef2sail that Lawry's makes the best prime rib. Just see the damn movie, let the story and character determine its worth. I know I am (sans Admiral, of course).
