For those of you who know me.... know that I love watching movies. It stems from when I was little and my dad delivered films to the drive-ins. OK OK so some of you may not even know what a drive-in is. The best times ever parking your car out doors in front of a huge screen to watch movies. Plus my parent's best friends owned (what we back then called) a walk-in. That is a cinema now days. So we were privy to movies before the general public. When I heard that Moby Dick was going to be televised on a prime channel I thought, "Fantastic!" With all of the technology and movie know how this will be a great version of a classic. Mike and I got settled in with a bowl of popcorn and waited. And waited and waited and waited. I honestly can say that this movie is one of my most disappointments in moves ever!!!!! From the spotless clean costumes to the boring conversations that made no sense, to the whaling and OMG the white whale. With actors like Eathan Hawk, John Hurt, and the two lines that Donald Sutherland had this should have been a movie to remember.... Oh I mean in a good way.
Huge Thumbs down on this version of Moby Dick
