Having nearly been shipwrecked myself (Really good firefighting saved the day and the ship) I have no illusions about how terrifying the experience is. You do what you have to and you hope your trust in your shipmate's training and competance is not misplaced.
Drama and high adventure is nice in the movies but it ain't so great in the real world.
>>I know. But don't forget, we're talking about movies here.<<
I understand that, however, the question asked was "In shipwreck movies, which do you prefer:"
I hope you can appriciate that as somebody who came a bit too close to being directly involved in a real world event which could have resulted in the loss of the ship, that the finer points of the "drama" would be lost on me.
As for anybody else, I sincerely hope that The Land Of Make Believe is as close as they ever get to a shipwreck or even the threat of one. The Real McCoy ain't no fun.
