    Because it's not here, nor the future.

    It's long ago in a galaxy far, far away...

    Don't get me wrong. Acting was fine. It was just visually stunning. It's what I remember the most. (except how Tom Cruise actually didn't look stupid as a Samuri) Great movie. I just remembered so many scenes where I wished I could visit.




    I like movies set in oriental areas. I like seeing places I'll never see.

    Tom Cruise wasn't a Samurai, though. He just wore the armor.

    Ken Watanabe is the title character, technically. Though, could be plural and refer to all of them.
