Re: One Last "All is Lost " thread

I watched the movie the other day and thought it was good movie.

But then I knew it was a movie and not a documentary and didn't expect it to be a sailing instruction video. After all if it was really a sailing issue with the boat all he would have had to do was a take a Viagra and he would have known how to fix the boat's problems (if you haven't seem the commercial you wouldn't get it).

Don't blow air up my rear, be useful and blow it at the sails!

Except the Viagra still wouldn't give him enough sailing knowledge to know when the jib is backwinded....

Re: One Last "All is Lost " thread

I just attempted to watch "all is lost". Whom ever directed this has no knowledge of sailing and boat systems. Worst piece of crap I've seen in a long time.

Re: One Last "All is Lost " thread

Just watched about half of the movie and then skimmed through the remainder as I sat on watch in the bridge at work...

Someone said it, it's not the errors that bothered me to no end, it was the way he was just so casual about the entire thing. You don't tack the boat to the side with a gapping hole in your boat. He didn't have much concern about the water just sitting in his boat, heck he went to sleep with it there. Look I'm not saying the guy should have panicked or freaked out the whole movie, but he was just way to calm and collected. And you would think that since he was calm and collected he would have made better decisions.. And prioritized better. It was almost like he wasn't actually in the middle of the Indian Ocean.. . Oh wait.... Haha!

I thought the movie was terrible. And I take back what I said about the errors, they were terrible and too many. Let me shave before this storm hits instead of reefing or putting my storm jib on..... Sea Ancho ready, maybe?

Also, from a professional mariner, you don't ever leave your floating vessel for a liferaft unless it is in fact sinking!

And what really got me at the end is when he is in the rafters for days with all this time on his hands, yet when he sees a ship, he has to read the directions on the flare. Twice. If I'm stuck in a raft alone, you better believe I'm going to know everything about what's in that emergency bag nd how to use it.

And that is what I think of the movie. Also, I'll never get that time back.

Re: One Last "All is Lost " thread

While there were some obvious technical errors, I understand that this movie is a work of art and I found it refreshing when compared to the drivel normally put out by Hollywood.

No gratuitous swearing, no lesbian scene, no obligatory scene of a White racist beat-down, no Christian or Conservative bashing. The film makers didn't go out of their way to make a straight White man seem stupid, weak or evil.

I liked it!

Some gratuitous swearing and a lesbian scene may have helped, though...

Re: One Last "All is Lost " thread

There is going to be a remake of "All is Lost".

Collarboration of Directors Tarantino and Van Sant !

They said they would put the "gratuitous swearing, lesbian scene, obligatory scene of a White racist beat-down and Christian/ Conservative bashing. " back into the movie.

Re: One Last "All is Lost " thread

He did swear. It was one of the only lines. I guess it wasn't consider gratuitous.
