Top 10 lists will be a list of 10 movies that will be published once a week and will either have to do with a movie coming out that week or just what I want to do at the time. 

This week, we finally get to a movie that I’ve been looking forward to for a while- In the Heart of the Sea.  It looks fantastic and because of it, this week I am looking at the Top 10 Naval Movies.  I’m using a somewhat loose definition of naval in that I am including anything that takes place on water for a significant portion of the movie, and involves some sort of ship.  What movies make the list? Keep reading and find out, then comment at the bottom and let me know what I missed.

Top 10 lists will be a list of 10 movies that will be published once a week and will either have to do with a movie coming out that week or just what I want to do at the time. 

In honor of the (hopefully) last Hunger Games movie coming out this weekend, I’m doing this week’s Top 10 list on movies that were based in some capacity off books.  There were a couple qualifiers.  I am forcing myself to only choose movies that I knew were based on books at the time of watching them, or shortly thereafter.  So as much as I’d like to put Die Hard on the top of a list for like the fourth time, I didn’t know it was based on a book until fairly recently, far after I had originally seen it.  I am not, however, forcing myself to pick movies based on books I have read because at that point, the list would end up being approximately 2 movies. Anyway, let’s get to my picks.
