Re: " All Is Lost" movie
Since this is a sailing forum not a movie forum I would like to comment on this movie.
I went to see the movie with my wife and our friends. My wife and I are sailors have been for 20 years together and I have sailed for 40 plus and have logged a lot of sea miles and made my mistakes lord knows and paid for them.
Half way through the movie my wife had had enough not from so much the glaring mistakes but from the actual brutal endless trashing the por sot was getting she is sensitive and this was not the right movie for a fun evining out.
Our friends are pretty new to sailing and I had told them about this movie and hoped it would be a good sea movie . They are new to Blue water sailing, enjoying their new to them Hans Christian with the hope of some blue water sailing.
We held on for a while my wife I knew was ok to wait it out or go across the street and vist the book store but I had to finally give up when the rummy sailer whatever his name was we never know, started fishing around for the right silverware before departing a vessel that had stayed afloat for the night. Actually been pretty forgiving Hmmmmmm. But that was the last straw. I had over looked the container ramming the hull in a calm sea and bashing in the stbd side. I over looked the guy carefully putting things away while water is pouring into his boat. Man I can evan enjoy his mysterious trip up the mast to mess with the VHF . Between storms and his joy rides in and out of the boat . But when he got into the Raft I knew I was in watching a looser and I do not want to know what he says!
Seriously love all things to do with the sea and was so looking forward to this . Guess Ill hear how it ends but dont much care!
