Master and Commander (2003)

We've been trying to get to see this movie for a couple of days, and finally today we got ourselves together to see "Master and Commander" at a local cinema this afternoon.

It was really good... set almost entirely on board a frigate in the British navy in the 18th century, it gave the appearance of being true-to-life, depicting realistic conditions, even if it wasn't really. A ripping good yarn, and it really made me want to go read the books. I'm told there are 20 of them! I hope they make a sequel or two.
