Best Sea Flick
Re-watching Master and Commander on blu-ray, I am reminded of the brilliance of this film. Even under close HD scrutiny, the sea battles and storms look incredibly real. Weir has made a masterpiece in my opinion, in which every aspect of the film - the acting, the effects, the dialogue and the cinematography all create a work of art.
But can any other seafaring pic come close to this film? Sea Hawk (1940) for example? Or any of the Bounty films? What about the more modern efforts like A Perfect Storm or White Squall? Is Master and Commander the best sea flick ever made, or am I just being deluded?
