(I know someone who won't see a Robert Redford movie because Robert Redford was once in a movie with Jane Fonda.)
I can think of better reasons. IMO, Redford hasn't made a movie worth watching since Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, and Fonda's best was Barbarella. Jus' sayin'...

Re: One Last "All is Lost " thread

If that's art I have some waterfront property on Mars for sale.
A technical error is forgeting to lift the toilet lid before you take a dump. He forgot to drop his shorts first!
I couldn't get past him casually walking past the hole w/ water pouring, doing nothing about it and going out to the cockpit. The shaving prep for the storm was a nice touch.
I found myself banging my head on the desk about the same time he did the head plant into the mast. That was the end for me. Just plain stupid!
What amazed me is acquaintances of mine that don't sail loved it! Go figure.
Oh. And how did he manage to avoid a tan in the middle of the Indian Ocean w/ no sun protection.
Just sayin.
Jim

Watch as much "training day" as you can stomach and you'll see gratuitous.

I can watch me trying to get the generator impeller replaced in a month or so, instead.

Re: One Last "All is Lost " thread

Does anyone remember exactly what sank his boat?
I saw it when it first came out so I don't remember everything.
I remember he fixed the hole from the container.
His boat apparently did a 360 after that.
When he left the boat the seas were calm.

Where exactly was the hole that sank the boat and how did it happen?

It sank because he was not smart and ditched the boat for the life raft so it filled with water during the storm. Then when it somehow made it through the night, he managed to get what he could off the boat instead but didn't think to try to bail the boat out.

It sank from idiocy. The small boat just couldn't handle all that weight.

I believe that the patch job came lose after or during the storm. Too much water to bail after he woke up.

It's just a movie.

Read my post #68 it explains it fairly well from the point of view of a navy damage control specialist and retired shipwright.
