  • Wee Hunk's rating of the film The Last Samurai

    This epic story starts right in with the sword battles. It has that florescent red color for the blood, and the crazy orange headdresses of the fighters to the black teeth of the Ohaguro. It's a time of transition though, as gunpowder and western clothes are seen in the big battles. Most fortunately of all, this has no Tom Cruise, despite similar time periods. It's a good movie for Misumi to go out on.
