Recordé que Tom Cruise había hecho una película de samuráis así que decidí revisitarla a ver que tal y mis conclusiones son las siguientes: La historia es Dance With Wolves situado en el Japón feudal, Tom Cruise hace de un ex soldado maniaco depresivo con estrés postraumático que es llevado a entrenar nuevos soldados ahí para apaciguar y posteriormente aplastar una rebelión de samurá... 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.... 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... read more

I already saw this movie but since it was a while back and since I had it on DVD, I thought I might as well check it out again. Well, the first thing I noticed while re-watching the damned thing was that it was actually pretty much 'Dances with Wolves' in Japan. As a result, they made a similar mistake which was that, in 'Dances with Wolves', Kevin Costner actually became a better Indian than the ... read more

“A beautifully done film, and a sweeping and spellbinding epic in every sense. The Last Samurai is exquisitely shot, with stunning locations, wonderful cinematography and well designed costumes. The music by the ever reliable Hans Zimmer is gorgeous, dramatic in the battle sequences, and poignant in the slower scenes. Speaking of the battle sequences they were extremely well staged and came across as spine tingling. The story is strong, and the performances and direction are too. I have never really liked Tom Cruise, but here he gives one of his better performances ever in this film, sometimes I forgot that it was him acting. Billy Connelly also handles his role well, though I usually associate him with comedy. However, it is indeed Ken Watanabe who captivates, and easily walks away with th” read more

“Recordé que Tom Cruise había hecho una película de samuráis así que decidí revisitarla a ver que tal y mis conclusiones son las siguientes: La historia es Dance With Wolves situado en el Japón feudal, Tom Cruise hace de un ex soldado maniaco depresivo con estrés postraumático que es llevado a entrenar nuevos soldados ahí para apaciguar y posteriormente aplastar una rebelión de samuráis. A nivel histórico y narrativo se justifica la rebelión como parte de la transición entre el feudalismo y la monarquía a la par del desarrollo industrial y políticas del periodo Meiji. Muy bonito todo ese segmento a secas.

No me gustó realmente el retrato de ambos bandos, no es un problema grave, pero se nota que los miembros del estado son representados como corruptos oportuni” read more
