Well, not feeling very inspired to write a full review. It was a bit rubbish to be honest, beyond the recurring motif of the woman behind the wall with the eyepatch. And that’s despite the fact that I love pretty much anything involving old ships and sailing.

So as requested, it’s an open thread – let us all know what you thought either in the comments, or through a link to your blog where you’ve gone the distance and reviewed it yourself.

    I’m Rob Buckley, a journalist who writes for UK media magazines that most people have never heard of although you might have heard me on the podcast Lockdown Land or Radio 5 Live’s Saturday Edition or Afternoon Edition. I’ve edited Dreamwatch, Sprocket and Cambridge Film Festival Daily; been technical editor for TV producers magazine Televisual; reviewed films for the short-lived newspaper Cambridge Insider; written features for the even shorter-lived newspaper Soho Independent; and was regularly sarcastic about television on the blink-and-you-missed-it “web site for urban hedonists” The Tribe. Since going freelance, I've contributed to the likes of Broadcast, Total Content + Media, Action TV, Off The Telly, Action Network, TV Scoop and The Custard TV.
