I'm struggling to find it in a theatre near me. I'll bitch about that.
I can't seem to find it in Phoenix either...

I finally found it in Landmark Theatres but it doesn't start until the 25th.

Re: All is Lost

Yeah, great idea, taking the spouse to sea a sailing disaster movie. LOL

Received a note from fandango.com with whom I signed on advising me that a select few theaters in NY City was showing the film last Friday.

My wife really wants to see it, meanwhile I'm thinking "I'll never get you on a boat again!"

Re: All is Lost

I'm getting nervous about this movie too. My woman is a sailing newbie and this might not set well with her. At all.

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).
I could say the same about "Captain Phillips"....(not a movie for professionals, for the masses, etc), but at least Tom Hanks sounds like a merchant captain on the radio. Redford should have done a Butch Cassidy sequel, but I guess he's too old to ride a horse or jump off cliffs into rivers. :-) (BTW, if you haven't seen Capt. Phillips, do!)

For that matter, there are numerous examples of getting the technical things right....Top Gun, Hunt for Red October, Blackhawk Down.....Zero Dark Thirty...

IMHO, when you get the tech stuff right it makes for a better movie....usually it's not that hard. If the writers and directors can't make the effort....well it tells you something about how stupid they think the audience is.

Re: All is Lost

Maybe not quite the same, but, after serving in the military I became acutely aware of the inconsistencies in movie uniforms. It's usually something subtle like ribbons being in the wrong order or officer's U.S. insignia on an enlisted uniform. Easy things to google and get right. Which leads me to believe that "technical advisors" do this on purpose. A "wink-wink", if you will, to those of us who know the difference.

Huh??!! I had to chime in on this one. I love me some Top Gun, definitely my favorite movie when it came out (and I was 12). It inspired a life-long love of aviation and military aviation in particular. But I have to say that they got very little correct technically speaking. Very very little. I know the move well, I could make a list, but I wont. Great movie though.

For the other three, I agree, pretty good technical details, especially Zero Dark Thirty. Excellent, excellent excellent. When the door charges and grenades did not cause the hand-held equivalent of a thermo-nuclear detonation, I knew the producers were serious about making a somewhat accurate movie.
