Master and Commander on Blu-Ray-Finally!
Following a series of delays, Russell's turn in the Oscar-nominated 2003's Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World is finally available on Blu-Ray.
Many on Amazon and other sites are complaining about Fox's bare-bones approach to this DVD--leaving out many of the extras which were included on the regular DVD release. But the movie itself stands as one of Russell's best, and in a movie career like Russell Crowe's that's saying a lot!
Master and Commander was nominated for 10 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, and Best Director for Peter Weir, along with a whole slew of other nominations and wins. So, if you're collecting Blu-Ray discs, your collection won't be complete without this one.
