Re: ALL IS LOST: The Movie

Doesn't bother reading the flare instructions until he needs to use them in a hurry, but does learn how to use a sextant to give him his position while drifting in a raft with no control of speed or course.

Except he didn't drown. You, the audience get to decide.

Good point.
Have to say Robert Redford deserves a credit as an actor.

I know two things.

First, he was originally only a crew member on that Cal, and he ate the captain and his wifey and threw their bones overboard.

Second, when he was rescued by that small boat, it was really another life boat and they pulled him up and ate him too.

this is the way of the sea, this is the way to a good bbq.

The only way I'll ever watch it is when someone (preferably Mel Brooks) makes a parody of it. Then, I'd watch them back to back.

A perfect example of a parody movie is "Airplane!"
The original movie was called "Zero Hour" and believe it or not, the script was almost exactly the same as the one in Airplane.

Re: ALL IS LOST: The Movie

It is so easy, even for the novices here, to pile on with the technical criticism but if you stop a think for a moment you may figure out that it's not a "sailing" movie at all but really about something else.

Thanks all.

I won't bother then.

I want to see a good sailing movie.

Don't bother with this one... Complete waste of 1 1/2 hours. In my opinion, it sucked!

Most movies are about "something else". But if they throw in a sailboat I'll watch almost anything.

Agreed, but why pick it apart like it was supposed to be a training film for the single-handed wannabes? Oh, he didn't have an EPIRB, he didn't yell and curse enough, he had the wrong tool for the antenna repair, etc. Ö jeeez, give me a break.

Re: ALL IS LOST: The Movie

Maybe it is just me but the little errors like the lanyard on the wrench didn't bother me too much. What got me is what appeared to be real dumb a$$ moves. He waited for the boat to be half full of water before even attempting to activate the pump. When the storm was approaching, he waited until he was in the thick of it before digging out the storm sail.
There were good points as well, even if they over did his not panicking in times of crisis. He could have shown a little concern.

Just a question, after the storm when he opened the cover on the life raft and found the boat floating. He spent enough time digging for stuff, couldn't he have bailed and saved it?
