JerseyCity Frankie Posted January 10, 2016 Report Share Posted January 10, 2016 Just saw this latest Ron Howard film. In the weeks leading up to seeing it I first saw the trailer while watching another film, and it looked GREAT! I was so excited to see it. It got released a week before Star Wars and INSTANTLY it started getting bad reviews. It was officialy panned by the critics but I still wanted to see it- after all its got tall ships and whales! How bad could it be? I am happy to say that barring a kinda dull script, the film was very entertaining and anyone hoping to get an eyefull of square rigged sailing whaling will not be dissapointed. But the real reason I came to Bottled Ship Builder to write this revies is that there are about thirty ships in bottles in this picture. A plot device of the film has the action and narative jumping back and forth between the time of the tragedy of the Essex and thirty years later as one survivor is retalling the tail.......from his ship in bottle building bench with a ship in bottle being constructed right before him, the ships in bottles are in EVERY shot in this part of the film, many times the camera is shooting THROUGH a ship in a bottle at the actors at the table beyond. Its got to be the most ship in bottle movie of any movie. JesseLee, Landlubber Mike, Raindog and 1 other 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
