Re: What (Boatie) Movies Have You Seen Recently

The Incredible Journey of Mary Bryant
To the Ends of The Earth (the miniseries- I didn't realize there are two by the same title. This one deals with a voyage from England to Australia)
Damn The Defiant
The Horatio Hornblower series
While they all aren't on a ship 100% of the movie, they are some of my favs.

Re: What (Boatie) Movies Have You Seen Recently

Just saw recently restored version of "The Viking", about sealing on the Arctic ice in 1931. Lots of actual footage of sealing ships under sail and steam in the arctic. Varick Frissel, the protagonist, was killed during the making of the movie in the explosion of the ship the film was named after. Very interesting stuff. On cable recently and probably again since it was just restored. Includes famous Canadian skippers in the cast.

Interesting history fact for the day.
The LA Dunton, a schooner presently berthed in Mystic Seaport, was featured in that movie. In the race back to Gloucester the crew was told to make it look dramatic and so they over-sheeted to to achieve such a high level of heel.
Great movie!

However, how has no one mentioned Judge Smails? Sure its mostly golf but with one of the most classic boating scenes of all time!

Dan,

Crosswinds is a gem. The gal is a dandy, the with a skirt and the one with sails.

Thanks for the tip-

Agree. However after much googling I could not find out anything about the boats used in the movie. That is unusual. Usually something pops up.

Re: What (Boatie) Movies Have You Seen Recently

On the classic side of things the best boating movie I have seen for a long time is the new two part Moby Dick with Ethan Hawke & William Hurt. Very highly recommended!

Re: What (Boatie) Movies Have You Seen Recently

The other boating movie I have watched even more recently is the Australian "The Reef'. If you want to suffer serious shark paranoia and maybe never go in the water again this is the movie for you.

Otherwise, other than the minor continuity critisim where some shots are filmed in clear blue water and the others in dirty stuff close to shore (after reading the script the actors might have refused to go out too far?) this isn't a bad movie. There are some good seamanship lessons as far as what not to do and about why keel fin production boats are dangerous around reefs.

Apparently the film is based on a true story,

Re: What (Boatie) Movies Have You Seen Recently

A classic British war time film with the lead role played by Noel Coward and directed by my fave British director, David Lean
In Which We Serve

Also liked The Cruel Sea, Capt Ron, Treasure Island, Cut Throat Island, Riddle of the Sands.

Ive had mixed feelings about Jaws, fascinating as it was, I dont need scaring any more than I already am. Same goes for The Abyss and The perfect Storm and any film involving a drowning scene.
