Master and Commander-Far Side of the World (Review)

I saw the movie and loved it. One of the problems that movies have is, how to show the passage of time. In the book they would tell about the repair and re-provision time after the battle, but in the movie they condensed it to some shots of them doing some carpentry and painting.
I agree they did a good job of showing some of the hardships and hard choices that we are not used to now.

I hope it does well so that we may see more adventures of Lucky Jack Aubrey and H.M.S. Suprise.

I just finished reading the story of Magellan''s Voyage called "Over the Edge of the World" and was very much interested to see a wooden ships and iron men sort of movie. It was a lot of fun.
