Das Boot is shown annually to all hands on Moonstruck. Without a doubt the best boat related movie of all time.

I agree with "Captains Courageous" , with Spencer Tracy, but I have been a big fan of "Dead Calm" for years.

The Bounty- Laurence Olivier, Anthony Hopkins, Mel Gibson, Liam Neeson, Daniel Day Lewis amongst others. My preferred version of this classic story. Great videography

Seriously, some great ideas for movies to rent until this @$?ег#%+{-ing winter is over.

A favorite of the submarine force. That movie was always playing in crews mess. Or in submarine parlance "burn a flick".

Made my family watch it as well. They were riveted. But I was pummeled with pillows for the ending the first time they saw it.

That's a good story, but in the book there was a big problem with the ending. I am surprised that Tom Clancy, who was known for meticulous research, had a boomer going into Ocracoke Inlet. It was changed in the move to Maine.

Ocracoke Inlet most times is barely passable to even relatively small craft.

If you can tolerate the stupid love story plot and irritating characters, TITANIC was a great movie in my opinion. I thought the special effects depicting the ship were outstanding -- and not just the sinking part at the end...

I would have to put in my fun vote for Cap'n Ron and Master and Commander for more serious. As a teenager I was fascinated by Mutiny on the Bounty novel and movies. and then all things pirates, ocean etc. Loved the old black and white Errol Flynn stuff. I have always liked REdford but the latest movie was a real disappointment and was a waste of time for me. Not as for everyone I'm sure. I am easily amused by many movies and the key is am I engulfed in the movie and entertained. I found myself just saying WTF way too often to get immersed in it. Bottom line for me is I love almost all boat movies or TV as long as there is a boat in it. I just pray to God that the Kardshians don't buy a boat and create a new show "Kim and Khloe go to Newport" ... Haha. That would be a new definition of a disaster show.
