Well the thread bump got this in my visibility and I only read every 5 pages or so but -
I hated it but I couldn't say why really - This thread helped me figure it out.
I found myself like others scoffing at a lot of the really dumb stuff depicted. So it isn't an "accurate" sailing movie.
As far as an entertaining movie, it wasn't entertaining. One guy, no dialog, bumbling along from one mistake to the next. Maybe if they had even used a prop like him completing and narrating a daily log so we could have some idea what this guy was thinking.
You certainly could not figure it out from his facial expressions.
However - I do want his mid starboard cabin
locker. That thing seemed to be magically huge. It seemed every time he needed something from bosuns chair to jib
to 6 man raft it came outta that same locker - LOL
Maybe as a movie it was "art" but sometimes art is really boring.
