However, the real star of this show, for me, was Ken Watanbe. What a talent! Seeing Algren complete... read more

I've decided to review of all of movies of Tom Cruise that I've seen-- which I guess is actually only three: The Last Samurai, Valkyrie, and Minority Report....

(Seriously, though, this is nothing against Katie Holmes: I just like to keep... read more

"The Happy Ending: American soldier Nathan Algren (Tom Cruise) helps the Japanese emperor realise that Japan needs to modernise in order to progress, and the country rediscovers its fighting spirit. The Depressing Implications: Just seventy years later, the country bombs Pearl Harbour and launches itself into World War II… Gulp. "

The Samurai's Shattered World

“I've decided to review of all of movies of Tom Cruise that I've seen-- which I guess is actually only three: The Last Samurai, Valkyrie, and Minority Report.... And if I had to rank them, I guess that that would be the order that I would put them in, yeah-- just because I'm thinking of the guy. And.... Why could that be? (Seriously, though, this is nothing against Katie Holmes: I just like to keep myself amused.)

"There is some comfort in the emptiness of the sea, no past, no future."

This won't be the best review that I've ever written, but I remember being kinda impressed by this movie, and by Tom's performance in it, whenever I saw it....

That was a close call! (32 movies items)

"While filming the first battle in the woods, the animatronic horse Tom Cruise was riding on malfunctioned, and he was nearly decapitated by a sword swing from Hiroyuki Sanada, but he was able to stop the blade from cutting off the head inches from his neck."
