The ending of Captain Phillips

.. Saw the ending of Captain Phillips eight or nine times by now. I haven't seen the movie yet, because it's not the kind ot just fast forward through and I haven't had the opportunity to sit down and just commit to it. But I watch the ending all the time.

Again, kudos to the casting crew. They picked such amazing people to do such a scene.

.. And I don't mean to sound blunt at the expense of human lives, but in retrospect of actual events, those marksmen delivered. It's not half easy hitting three marks in a moving boat FROM a moving boat at the same time. Weight of the world sits on your shoulders in those moments.
