And get a load of how young the Ship’s Boys were. From the Hornblower books, that wasn’t a stretch, either.

I stopped watching the review because there was to much blah blah blah.

I remember seeing the movie way back when, and very much enjoyed it. At the end, when they turn around to re-engage, was a great ending.

“Master and commander”

It’s not just Canada; the video has been blacked out here also.

"Master And Commander." Its a great movie...

I especially like the brain surgery scene haha The tools he used looked like my great grandfathers carpentry tools from the 1920's :/

I'm pretty sure I watched it, but it's from 2003 and I really don't remember. It's available on Hulu so I added it and will watch it again.

I also like the 1992 movie “Wind.”

My sons were 11 & 12 at the time. Now, twenty-eight and a half years later, they still groan, thinking about how much they hated it. :D
