Recently, on an excursion with my male parental unit, I attended the new Russel Crowe movie, Master and Commander Of The Far Side of the World. I expected this movie, despite the excellent reviews, to be one's usual action packed, shallow plot lined blockbuster, that all the jocks at school claim immediate allegience to. My theories were proven wrong. The movie not only had an amazing soundtrack but a real plot! I was highly impressed with the special effects and the performances of the various actors. The movie, while having some predictable occurences, was on the whole surprising and mildly suspensful. I enjoyed it greatly and was pleased further when I arrived at school the next day and heard the jocks complaining about the length of the film. I highly recommend this film to anyone who is sick of movies such as Biker Boyz or 2 Fast 2 Furious, as well as recent disappointments, i.e. Matrix Revolutions.

Plus, Russell Crowe's shirt is unbuttoned half way down the whole time. [Happytears]

p.s.:I thought I was the only one who noticed the awesome music!

I was going to see this and then decided to see The Matrix:Revolution at the last minute. Big mistake. [Frown]

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie, and it's definately one to see on the big screen.

A friend of mine gave me the first book in the series about 6 years ago, I burned through the whole series as fast as I could. I've re-read all of them, they are an amazing body of work. I'm scared to watch the movie, I don't want to ruin my impression of the in-depth, detailed world that Patrick O'Brian pulls the characters through. I'll probably break down and go anyway, though. But if you like the movie, get the series of books- they're not cheap, and there's like 14 of them, but they're worth every penny.
