I really like it, but the books are even better.

I'm very curious about these.  Might need to check some of those out and revisit

I'd say give the first one (Master and Commander) a try, if you like it, you'll like the rest of them too.  The nautical terminology can be tough at the beginning, but eventually you get the hang of it.

You just sold me. I love esoteric terminology. :)

You have never seen this Smirnoff? You will LOVE it I guarantee. It is totally your kind of movie.

Oh I meant the book. I've actually seen the movie. I saw it way back when it first came out. I have almost no memory of it now, other than it was a positive experience. I was only 18 or 19 at the time though and hardly into film like I am now. I guess I should rewatch it eh :)

I am amazed it is not on your top 100 to be honest. It is about sailing, outdoors, huge battles etc. It is made for you. Not to mention it is pure awesome.

I LOVE all that stuff too.  I'm puzzled how the film was unable to generate any excitement for me.  I think I just wants more sailing, more outdoors and mor....err...actually the huge battles were pretty friggin awesome.

It's funny because I'm not a fan of naval anything-- not even the oranges-- so I thought I'd be bored watching the movie.  However, it instantly became one of my favorites.  I watched it again with my 9 year old a few months ago and we were both so inspired by it that we invented a new version of Risk for it.  I love this film.

Wow.  I didn't expect to be in the minority on this one.  I obviously missed something!

I haven't seen it. The only reason I'm saying I haven't seen it is because I think Ferris would enjoy hearing from someone who isn't telling him he's wrong :)
I actually consider a lot of movies to be life-changing! I take them to my heart and they melt into my personality.
