Hello World!

So remember how a couple of weeks ago, I was a day late with an Enterprise review because I'd won a pass to the area premiere of Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World?

Well, I have to admit that I'm totally obsessed. And I did not see it coming, even though I tend to love Napoleonic-era flicks (Sharpe!) and sea epics and even, on occasion, Russell Crowe. But I'd never read any of O'Brian's novels, and I'd heard that there wasn't a single woman with a speaking role in the movie, which does not tend to make me predisposed to like a film.

But I just fell in love. I mean, the ship! The costumes! The details of the silver and the deck! The musical duets! And the child actors in this film are just amazing. It's just superbly done.

M&C has done lukewarm box office despite the presence of Crowe and director Peter Weir, and I wonder what is wrong with audiences. Because while this isn't an action flick like X-Men, it's got wonderful acting and storytelling and visuals; all the elements are there, unlike the newest Matrix and The Hulk. And I so, so much want them to film more of the books now, which will only happen if there's serious money to be made. I hate the way entertainment industry decisions are made.
