This blog was started by several authors who love to write and talk about writing.
Who doesn't want to write an epic novel that inspires generations and movies?
"Call me Ishmael" is probably one of the most famous first lines of a novel. You were probably forced to read it in high school. If not, then you may have noticed it in this weekend's box office hit "In the Heart of the Sea."
Below is my movie review of Hollywood's latest attempt to live up to an incredible book. How did they do?
As always, the book is better than the movie, but these special effects are innovative and effective.
- “Can man bend nature to our will? – Captain Pollard (Benjamin Walker)
- Persistence and tenacity will see you through.
- Integrity is worth more than reputation or money.
* "We will surely perish out there." - Captain Pollard
"We might also survive." - Mr. Chase
- The sailors draw a picture of a topless woman.
- Some profanity.
- Several intense scenes with lots of blood and guts.
- Skeletons of dead guys might frighten young children.
- Explain to your kids that a “greenhorn” is the old-fashioned way of saying “newbie”.
