I like movies and there are even a bit out there that I can watch over and over again. But there are only a few flicks that can make me get just as excited as the first time I saw them; and if you have seen the Horatio Hornblower movies, then you understand.
A&E several years ago filmed a made-for-tv series of the novels written by C.S. Forester, and well, they are just amazing. Besides being filled with adventure, honor, and passion.... Horatio is simply... well, yummy! :) There is nothing like sitting down after a long day, curling up with some popcorn and watching hours of a dreamy lookin' guy fighting for honor and bravery. He is the best of what good men should be and everything you like to see in a human.
These movies tell the adventures and life of Horatio Hornblower, who is a sweet humble guy that is out to work hard and always ready to prove himself. The story takes place the early 1800's right around Napoleon's time. The British and french are constantly fighting and they are either trying to stop Napoleon or help end the french revolution.
We have introduce these movies to several families and we have all loved them. Not many people have seen these, but there is a strong following. A&E has been selling the complete box set for a little while now. I have seen them on Amazon for around $37 and the A&E website for $39. But if these are a little too pricey for you, you can rent them from Netflicks, they have all 8 of the discs.
So if you are ready for a good fella that loves sailing the high seas and can make McDreamy look dreary... then check out Horatio Hornblower, you wont be disappointed.
And p.s. .... the hubby will love it too... well, hopefully not for the same reason we women do :)
