There seems to be a lot of crap on screens right now. It's the dead time between summer and holidays - like trying to find something worth going to see between January and March.

Edit: RT has it at a whopping 17%. That should have given you a warning... :P

I was heavily into the real pirate radio in the mid seventies (took a boat trip out to Radio Caroline once). I can assure you that there is no need to employ poetic license in telling that story; it is already as bizarre and exciting as any story teller could need.

But this is Hollywood, so they have (reportedly) applied much poetastic license to the story and munged it horribly. The old bit about how pissing in something makes it taste better...
