In the Heart of the Sea (2015)
Elektra Boogaloo posted a topic in Bad Movie RecommendationsHas anyone else seen this movie? I know it flopped at the box office. (http://www.moviefone.com/2015/12/13/box-office-in-heart-of-the-sea-sinks/ ) I'm watching it now. I've read the book which I enjoyed but I'm baffled at how Ron Howard managed to make this story so BORING. It's a story about about old timey whalers lost at sea who EAT EACH OTHER. How do you make cannibalism DULL? There's like this frame story where our beloved Breecey Gleesey just sits there and gives exposition every time he's on screen to a fictitious version of Herman Melville? Like everyone just loves that guy who wrote that book they were forced to read in high school? Ugh. I feel bad for him again. No one should have to talk to Herman Melville that much. GET TO THE PART WHERE THEY START SHOOTING AND EATING EACH OTHER. It's literally an hour into the movie before the whale even attacks and the boat even sinks. Did they think people wanted to see some real old timey whaling?!? I'm baffled by all these choices.
