To be honest, I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since there was a stellar cast involved, I was quite eager to check it out. It is quite a famous story and, even though I haven't watched any other version before, I was already quite familiar with the plot even before watching the damned thing. Unfortunately, even though this 5th adaptation definitely had some potential, it i... read more

Pop Culture Phenomenon Films: 80’s (1473 movies items)

" This fourth film dramatization of the 1789 mutiny aboard the H.M.S. Bounty is based not on the familiar Nordhoff and Hall book, but on Richard Hough's novel Captain Bligh and Mr. Christian. This time, the infamous Captain Bligh is as strict a disciplinarian as ever.

“To be honest, I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since there was a stellar cast involved, I was quite eager to check it out. It is quite a famous story and, even though I haven't watched any other version before, I was already quite familiar with the plot even before watching the damned thing. Unfortunately, even though this 5th adaptation definitely had some potential, it is usually considered as the weakest version which was too bad. Indeed, the opening with Vangelis soundtrack had a nice ominous mood but I'm afraid they didn't manage to sustain this mood much longer and, to be honest, the end-result felt rather flat. At some point, David Lean was working on this project, he was planning to make something really epic in two parts and you might wonder if it wouldn'” read more
