Oh, another side splitting, technically inaccurate as possible, all out funny movie with John Candy was "Summer Rental". That is if you like John Candy type humor.

Now that the subject have morphed into naval movies, I should toss in The Caine Mutiny.

Truthfully, that show got me dreaming about sailing the high seas.

Oh, wow. Now that's a blast from the past! I had totally forgotten about that show.

My older sisters would run in and kick me out whenever that show was on! The only thing else I remember was the boat named Tiki. Maybe it will come back on MeTV.

OK...here's one I haven't seen yet but really want to see. It gets high ratings on IMDB (7.9 out of 10 stars) and Rotten Tomatoes (95% critics, 86% audience)

It a movie about Sir Ernest Shackleton's expedition from 1914-1916. It's dated 2000 and it's original name was "The Endurance: Shackleton's Legendary Antarctic Expedition"...later shortened to "The Endurance."

Has anyone seen it?

I saw a documentary on Shackleton's voyage in an open boat to seek rescue for his crew that stayed behind. Incredible. I don't remember if it was entitled "Endurance".

I should have mentioned that this is a documentary that's narrated by Liam Neeson.

OK, since I started this I guess I get to tweak the rules of engagement to include movies that haven't actually been released yet. One of my absolute favorite sea books is "In the Heart of the Sea." It's about the 19th century whale ship Essex, which was sunk by an enraged sperm whale and reportedly inspired Melville to write "Moby Dick."

Soon to be a major motion picture directed by Ron Howard . . . and one I won't miss when it's in theaters in December. The trailer is typically over the top. Hopefully, the movie won't be.

I have not, but it's now on my list. If it's half as good as the book, "Endurance," it will be terrific.

I bought that book a couple weeks ago and read the whole thing in one solid stretch flying from one side of the country to another. Very good book. Brutal and fascinating in so many ways. That book will now be part of the permanent library on our boat.

Great idea! But let's play the movie on Patty's eve!

I couldn't care less about pirate movies.

Lifeboat is a good movie despite the wartime prejudices.

My then teen-age son wanted to be a submariner, until he saw the movie. Das Boot.
