There was some great rough weather sailing footage under the credits in DOVE. I wish it had been in the film.

DOVE was a disappointment. Way too schmaltzy. The best parts were the gags on National Geographic.

Sailing Movies

My favorites are Master and Commander, White Squall, and Cap'n Ron. Here are some others that haven't been mentioned in this thread that I enjoyed:

Wake of the Red Witch - John Wayne in the South Pacific
Lifeboat - Hitchcock movie about survivors of a U-boat attack
Wackiest Ship in the Army - Jack Lemon skippers a sailboat during WWII
Message in a Bottle - Kevin Costner in a Nicholas Sparks story
Treasure Island - 1950s Disney Classic
Billy Budd - this movie is a bit of downer a a little cheesy, but good overall
Longitude - for TV mini-series
The Sea Hawk - Errol Flynn versus the Spanish Armada

I got my wife Message in a Bottle as part of a 3 pack of "chick flicks" that she watches while working on a project and I'm not around. Didn't think it'd be something I'd be interested in or that it was a sailing movie. Also in the 3 pack is "nights in rodanthe" -- outer banks? Wonder what she'll think when she comes home and I'm watching her chick flicks...

Fantastic Doc. Yes. Very sad.

I didn't read the whole post, mainly because I am daydreaming at work and can only afford so much time haha.

Has anyone mentioned Captains Courageous, it is black and white from the 30's but I thought it was a really good movie.

Also Cap'n Ron, my favorite movie of all time.
" A diesel lovers her oil like a sailor loves his rum
-Why is that Cap'n Ron?
-Nobody knows"

A movie with some good sailing and disaster action is "The Reef". I just watched it on Netflix. We could start a whole thread with the question "what would you do?"
