    Off Topic, But On Topic

    For fans of the "Age of Sail"
    I just saw a post on us.imdb.com that there is a new movie
    called "Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World",
    based on one of the books by Patrick O'Brian. Stars Russell
    Crowe as Capt.Jack Aubrey.  I really liked the make for TV movies of
    C.S. Forester's Hornblower books by A&E. I have the DVDs. I hope they do
    more in the series.
    Someone said that in this particular O'Brian book the British
    go after an American raider and that in the movie they change
    it to a French ship. Don't know if that's the case or not.
    I can saythat all in all, the "American Revolution" and the
    "War of 1812" don't seem to be very popular subjects in American
    movies. I think Americans like to root for the British and like
    being on the same side as Britain. We don't like the British to
    be the bad guys. The less said about wars with England the better.
    Just my $.02 of course.
