movie out
we went to the cheap theater and watched The Last Samurai tonight. It was a lot better than I expected. Better than the previews led both of us to believe.

Now, personally I can't believe that anyone who knew better would charge cavalry strait up the line of fire of stationary Howitzers, no matter how soon they expected to die. But maybe that's just me.

otherwise, it was pretty good.

Funny, a buddy of mine and I had this *SAME* conversation when I went to see it in frustration because RotK was sold-out... again. Anyway, he tried to defend the "honorable charge blahblahblah" line of reasoning while I went for the "bloody stupid tactics" line. I think we kind of stalemated, as we often do.

Personally, I believe "Die if you have to... just don't die STUPIDLY!"

I don't pretend to understand the psychology behind that action, but I bought into it enough to not get taken out of the story. Frankly I have to say that I expected to see that kind of futile tactic, well before they got to that point.

Overall I loved that movie. It was one of my favorites from last year. And I'm not usually a big what's-his-name fan. My friend who I saw it with was also blown away by the movie.

I've seen most of the movie, out of the corner of my eye and without sound, over the course of several airplane flights. It doens't look very interesting. And it looks violent.
