I read a very silly piece in The Conversation about the wholesomeness of the old Russel Crowe slash-n-dash epic, Master and Commander. I’m not even going to bother quoting from it because I just re-read the whole thing and the silliness seemed even more profound the second time through.
Watched it as soon as it hit the video rental store. (Seems like 200 years ago, eh?)
Good reminder fo a re watch. By the way, those TV adaptions of Horatio Hornblower were a good watch. Mind my spelling, Yohwin Griffid? , and Robert Lindsay.
It is a brilliant retelling of a number of classic 19th century Royal Navy stories. Every bit as good as Hornblower.
I’m sure Matilda’s Phd dissertation will be a real page turner.
and now Travis Johnson on Flicks blog has chimed in https://www.flicks.com.au/features/retrospective-master-and-commander-the-far-side-of-the-world-20-years-on/ I guess it highlights that there is an insatiable demand to fill media, no wonder AI is touted as the great white hope as it can generate endless copy based on the same previously produced stuff.
For some strange reason, I never saw this. Which is really odd.
Hold Fast. Great motto. Great name for a band
A great movie.
I have not seen it, not ever, and I intend for that state to remain.
