all is lame

We saw All is Lost tonight. Let’s just say that when a movie about sailing is done by people who have no idea what sailing really is, then sailors like us are going to be horrified at how hokey, technically inaccurate, and laughably ridiculous most of the “sailing” scenes actually are. Robert Redford is about as good as anyone could be in that role, and without him, the movie is truly lost.

We almost got up and left within the first 5 minutes (those of you who have seen it will know exactly what we are talking about) but we stayed and we’re glad we did, if for no other reason than to watch Redford, silently, brilliantly take us through his personal hell, ultimately however, to be ruined by the weenies who produced and directed this thing.

What the hell they were doing with the sailing action though, is beyond us. It’s as if they hired ¬†Scuttlebutthole as consultants, but they couldn’t be that dumb, could they? Oh well, it’s Hollywood where all is fake. ¬†Did ya see it?¬†What’s your take?
