For the record i’d have to say Cast Away( well you can see the sea, most of the time) & What was that movie with Kirk Douglas & Yul Brynner? Douglas was a lighthouse keeper & Brynner a sort of pirate.Can’t recall the name of it but was a bloody good little movie.Suggestions appreciated.

Charlie: Well, yeah, but I never tried shooting myself in the head neither.
