PostSubject: The Last Samurai   Fri Jul 04, 2008 3:19 pm

Likely one of the few filmes I liked with Tom Cruise (And believe me, that is saying...ALOT!)

I adore this film and the way it is told. Even though it is an american made film and with an american cast...they added that japanese spiritualism and sense of space, calm, serenity and anger (When presently needed)

The way they unfolded the story and the character were really quite impressive!

One thing that does bug me though (Which is a common misconception) is at the end most believe the female who Nathan Algran is staying with falls in love with him and when she dresses him and touches him, it was almost a sexual thing.

I think it can be taken like that, but, I believe it was meant to be taken more as a scene that he has come to bond in the Japanese culture and that she is the apitany of it, and as she accepts his and adorns him in her fallen lovers armour. She has moved past the stage of resentment to him because he is an alien to there country...and has accepted him as a man of the same beliefs, even if his culture is different and is willing to help him take that final step.

Also, the way he takes so many hits...god, he must have been so broken, but...again, you need to break the old for the new to move on through...

What is everyone elses thoughts/opinions?

Definitely. If he had a polearm and soloed light, then it would be Oscar-worthy. but he didn't, so, psssht.

I'll wait for the sequel, The Last Dragoon.

I like to stalk though! XD

In other news though, I was looking and did find some news of a possible sequel been made, however, it looks like it will likely be canned ; ;

Ah well! Better to be one film really to be honest, it had so much more impact that way...

I wish they had given more screentime to the development between himself and the townspeople though...I think it would have explained things so mucb better in some aspects.

I think this film as well, though Tom Cruise has the kinda of character acting skills that rival Jack Nickelson its good film largely because it has the guy playing Katsumoto in it and i like him alot

Personally i think they could have replaced Cruise with a plank of wood and the plank would portray the role with more depth ^^

You think he's good in this? He does a good job and all but he basically spends 3/4's of the film drunk and unpleasant, how is that different to his normal personality?

I remeber seeing this film at the cinema. After drinking 6 cans of coke when the advertisements were on I needed a pee when the main fight began... I needed to see so bad that my bladder hurt like hell and i had to basicly curl in my seat... When we all walked out it hurt to walk lol. (Maybe this is why I have a bladder of steel?)

Anyways I thought the film was pretty good and wouldn't mind seeing it again.
