The Last Samurai

Post by Zarie » Thu Dec 11, 2003 10:57 pm

I saw it yesterday and it was amazing. The Japanese culture and traditions (from the past and present) are interesting. I find them to be very strong individuals... strict, but strong and disciplined.

I watched it and I ended up crying like 3 times during the whole movie (give me a break, I was PMSing and the scenes were really intense with emotion).

Has anybody else seen it?

Yeah, it was pretty good.
Democracy. It rolls off the tongue nicely. Better than others. I can say it, spell it, define it, but can?t admit to ever believing it. So convoluted has it become that it has mesmerized generations into a comma of perfect sublimity. You dance to the music of your youth, identify with your own memory, become a time capsule of numb comfort. And there, mired in the exhaustion of a life in progress, you surrender your right to question for the luxury of not being bothered.

The whole arrangement's designed for men who, at some time or other in their lives, were looking for something their own environment couldn't supply them with. Or they thought their own environment couldn't supply them with. So they gave up looking. They gave it up before they ever really even got started"

Well, first of all, it's "SAMURAI". If you're Japanese, at least learn how to spell things of your past culture. Secondly, the last samurai is supposed to be an american and not someone Japanese. The real life story was about a man who came from San Francisco to join the army in Japan, dumbass. Get your facts straight.

okay I can sorta see where this guy is coming from... I am Chinese and whenever I see a white person doing Chinese stuff and trying to look all knowledgable and like an expert on it I can't help but get annoyed and laugh (especially when the mispronounce every word that they say in Chinese)...

but yeah, I think this guy was jumping the gun when he judged what the movie would be about...



ANYWAYS..

I loved the movie, saw it 4 times in the theatres, and am gonna buy it when it comes out...

this is most definitely a movie EVERYONE should see, I absolutely LOVED it (loved, loved, loved, loved, loved :))

Yeah, but I also hate when people hate americans just because they're american. Not all americans are fat disgusting dumbasses. I say this because Tom Cruise is a brilliant actor and if anyone said he wasn't suitable for the role because he's white and a hollywood star is a dumbass. This whole judging shit based on race and wealth is getting old. Eyes Wide Shut, Vanilla Sky, Minority Report, Jerry Maguire, Magnolia, Rain Man, Born on the Fourth of July, A Few Good Men, Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles, The Last Samurai -- all of his great work, which is more than some actors can say.
