Re: " All Is Lost" movie

It was listed at our local theater yesterday. When I got there they said the studo pulled the launch because it conflicted with some other movies launch.
I never heard of that before.

The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.

On the trailer Redford is calling for an SOS instead of a Mayday.
Any ideas as to why. It couldn't have been a mistake as they had technical help.

Exactly. Who the heck hasn't wrapped a winch backwards at some point? It's been a few decades since I made that mistake but I sure have done it.

Oh - Wind is one of my favorite movies also, but with sailing and Jennifer Gray how could it not be? *grin*

That may be silly but I bet for some reason they did on purpose. Probably because more of the general public recognize SOS than Mayday.

sail fast and eat well, dave

Recall the high speed entrance into the first stop as he puts the wheel hard over and then reverse to a starboard side docking at the bar? Did ya notice the Rudder (Note the stern waterline) was hard over to starboard?
I like to pick out mistakes in movies like that. After all it is Entertainment...

Re: " All Is Lost" movie

One can still enjoy the movie for what it is and have fun finding all the sailing errors at the same time. I have no doubt I will enjoy doing both.

" All Is Lost" movie

Just left the Avon Cinema in Providence RI. I have no complaints at all with the movie, only thanks to Mr. Chandor and Redford for giving us a wonderful film that we will be able to debate about for years to come.

For those that are having trouble finding a screen, go to http://www.zacharyquinto.com/. Yep, the new Mr. Spock from Star Trek was also a producer of All Is Lost and he has a
comprehensive list of theaters on his site where the movie is showing.

Re: " All Is Lost" movie

So after spending all day yesterday sailing/racing... (mid 50's, 18-20 knots of wind) we're driving home and the wife says, Hey, maybe we can find where ALL IS LOST is playing and catch it.
Just made the show. Almost full theatre.

Overall, I liked it. I know the movie was about man and his struggle to survive so I could forgive a few "errors".

Still trying to figure out how a collision in almost dead calm put a hole in the boat, yet when he goes back for the sea anchor he practical rams the container w/ no damage.
And the hole was above the water line. How did all that water come gushing in?

Why didn't he take a life jacket w/ him?
A few more questions but I don't want to give anything away.

Overall it was good. Amazing how the audience sat almost perfectly quiet the whole movie.

Per his list, it's not showing anywhere in Texas.
