(Newser) – Celebrity catfight alert? Louis CK recently sat down with NPR—and, in an amusing tidbit of the interview picked up on by Vanity Fair, the comedian revealed that he was not a fan of Robert Redford's sailing drama, All Is Lost. You see, CK has a yacht, just like Redford's character in the movie and, well, "you shouldn't see movies about something you know about because I'm very into the boating and I know how to navigate," CK explains. "But this guy in that movie, he made so many stupid choices. So every 10 seconds I was just yelling at the screen."

He continues: "You know, there was a million things he could've done to ensure his safety that he didn't. Like, he's trying to figure out how to use a flare gun. I'm like who doesn't know how to use a flare gun who's in the ocean? You're in the open ocean and you're sleeping? He didn't have his water anchor out. A million things that he did that were stupid and it just made me mad." As for boating, though, CK explains that he loves it because "I love to learn. ... I have this 42-foot boat that can sleep six people and it can go anywhere almost in the world. I love that I used to stand next to a boat and go I have no idea how to do that. And now I do, from trying it."

Why would you buy a boat that can only sleep six ?

Well, it was obvious to me, that the movie was not about (1) being a sailor, (2) being rich, or (3) being worried about Louis CK criticism. It was about "our man" facing his mortality against Mother Nature. So, who cares whether "our man" knew how to use a flare gun or sexton or that the life raft would burst into flames when he started the fire. "Our man" was not a sailor, he was just one of us trying to deal with life and the crap it hands us.

I hated "Braveheart" for similar reasons. So??
