It's time to wrap up this month's group writing project Best or Worst Sailing Movie Ever.
The project was inspired by a couple of posts on Charles Doan's Wave Train blog…
ALL IS LOST: What An Annoying Movie!
and HOLD FAST: Best Sailing Movie Ever?
Doc Häagen-Dazs from Time on the Water also wrote about All is Lost…
ALL IS LOST: Will we understand in the end WTF he is doing out there? It's got to be more than just cheating the nursing home.
And I submitted HIDE AWAY: Most Realistic Movie About Cruising Ever.
The author of Wet Pants Sailing Association Sunfish Fleet 568 Blog who apparently goes by the name "admin" went overboard and gave us 10 Top Worst Sailing Movies, a truly awful list.
And Pam of the excellent Improper Course blog wrote us a Sailing Movies Shopping List of movies she would like to see this holiday season, which, I must say, has some much better movies than the ones on admin's list.
Captain JP of Captain JP's log offered Good sailing movies - let's not get serious in which he argues that this was a tough assignment because "the problem is there are no really great ones out there and the bad ones aren't heroically awful either." Good point, Captain. But he does say that the movie he enjoyed more than any other was THE PIRATES! IN AN ADVENTURE WITH SCIENTISTS: An extra gruesome adventure involving hams, dodo like parrots, Queen Victoria and Darwin.
Finally George A who writes the Mid-Atlantic Musings blog also says he found selecting a best or worst sailing movie to be a hard challenge, so he submitted an old favorite of his, THE RIDDLE OF THE SANDS: Best Sailing Movie Ever.
Thanks to everyone who participated. You are the greatest!
