Topic: Master and Commander (the movie)


My wife and I disagree 100% on this one. I always buy movies I can watch over and over. Everytime I watch this one, she says "it sucks."

Well, what do people think of Master and Commander?

I thought it was OK. I didn't really get it. We watched it in school. Nobody liked it.

I really liked it because of the amount of history it covered. If there were more battle scenes, I think it would have been a more popular movie. To the non history loving folk, it made for a boring movie. If you pay close attention, the movie gave you a first hand look at life on a ship.

Just think that some ships were out at sea for well over 2 years. I do not think I could have handled life under such conditions unless I was an officer.

If you like Naval history especially age of sail history it's great. If not it's still okay.

I liked it but didn't think it was the great movie it was made out to be. You're right, Doody, if there had been more action it would've been more interesting. You're also right that it covered alot of history. Guess that kinda shows what we expect from movies huh?

I think it was a nice glimpse into the ancient world of exploration. The discovery of fascinating animals, navigating the vastness of the seas (to which we now compare with exploration to space).
However, I felt more people needed to die of disease etc. to really let it be a representation of the past in accuracy.

I liked it, and so did my JROTC battalion when our SAI showed it to us in class. I'm really into history, and the humor that Russell Crowe showed was great. I love puns.
