Went to see Last Samurai at Silvercity Coquitlam on Tuesday . . . saw a dropped, tinted white Legacy wagon take off afterwards . . .

Didn't see any ladies . . . but I wasn't very close.

I have to say I was pretty skeptical at first, because I expected that the movie would devolve into Tom Cruise being the saviour of the Japanese people or something (which I guess, to a degree, it did, but not nearly as much I was expecting it to). Also glad that they didn't do a full-blown love scene (even the kiss was a bit much, IMHO).

I think it did a reasonably good job at conveying bushido, but I also could have used more gratuitous and lingering sword shots.

I agree pretty much with you. The first third lead me to believe it would not be as good as it was. There should have been no kiss. It ended fairly well but a little hollywood. They did a reasonable job with Bushido but I found the Samurai were VERY glamorized...that was good as far as specticle goes but as far as an accurate portrayal goes....not great. The best part by far was the ninjas!! Anyways, all in all I thought it was a great movie and I will definitely purchase the DVD when it comes out.

gaw, this site never fails to amuse...

Q: What do ninjas do when they're not cutting off heads or flipping out?

A: Most of their free time is spent flying, but sometime they stab.

who knew?
