Master and Commander


Guys check out this part of a review of "Master & Commander" a new movie with Russell Crowe:

"In Master & Commander: The Far Side Of The World, the decks are swabbed not with seawater but rather buckets of boiling testosterone.
Peter Weir's enthralling adaptation of novelist Patrick O'Brian's 19th-century naval gazers is the most unabashed act of male pride since King Kong renovated Manhattan. Men and boys band together to cut jibs and throats, cannons have porn-star names like "Jumping Billy" and sissies are bullied into walking the plank. You expect to see a handwritten sign "No Girlz Allowed!" nailed onto the mainmast, smeared with peanut butter."

Gotta see this one..


I saw it last night. I thought it was pretty cool.. I was expecting more, but it was entertaining. During some of the action packed scenes.. it seemed like the camera was changing too fast to really see what was happening. I was pretty burnt though..

It didn't grab me like Gladiator, so I don't think it was worth the 10 bucks. I'd rather have watched Kill Bill again.
