Win in our Heart of the Sea competition!

2 min read


As you may or may not be aware, our Sister site The Movies is having a slight technical hiccup – so this is being posted here instead.

We all know who thinks you can get in the sea, only this time you might want to rethink listening to THAT Asian’s command. No sir, after watching the Ron Howard epic I can almost understand why the Japanese hate the large mammals so much. In the Heart of the Sea is an intense examination of hope, survival, and what you are willing to do when a 100 ft whale hates you and your mates with absolute resolve. So, go see it! My review will be out when the embargo lifts but can say that I ‘enjoyed’ the experience, one that is very visceral and will have your palms sweating.

Here’s what the movie is about and a trailer to whet your already soaked:

In 1820, crewmen (Chris Hemsworth, Benjamin Walker, Cillian Murphy) aboard the New England vessel Essex face a harrowing battle for survival when a whale of mammoth size and strength attacks with force, crippling their ship and leaving them adrift in the ocean. Pushed to their limits and facing storms, starvation, panic and despair, the survivors must resort to the unthinkable to stay alive. Their incredible tale ultimately inspires author Herman Melville to write “Moby-Dick.”

We have 2 hampers to give away to the value of R1500, and some rather nice loot is included! Get a load of this below.

I have been an avid fan of movies ever since I discovered Santa Clause wasn't real, a day marked in my memory by my first viewing of It's a Wonderful Life, which wasn't so wonderful that day. Since then I've watched thousands of movies and even fooled my parents into putting me through uni to get a degree in the subject. I first started writing as a journalist for The South African Newspaper before moving onto communications for an NGO trying to save the planet. Unfortunately my recommendations to the CEO that we should all don rings imbued with the powers of earth, fire, wind, water and HEART went unheard. Now I pretend the end isn't nigh by hiding in movies.
