    Thanks, Oscar. Sounds interesting. Let's just hope that it turns out better than Gladiator...

    Maybe because we like movies. No one said they wasted their time watching Gladiator. They expressed their opinion that there were better movies than Gladiator. Besides you asked.

    Lets make this into a poll, who likes Gladiator Yey or Ney! Seriously though Gladiator is one of those movies that some people around here think is overrated being that it didnt deserve all the Academy Award praise, other movies like Braveheart and Titanic generally fall in that area as well. Personally I felt Gladiator was a great movie, its competiton at the Academy Awards was Traffic and Crouching Tiger, Traffic was good but not great which is why it didnt win, I have yet to see Tiger so can't comment there.

    I thought this was a thread about The Last Samurai.
    Why do we need everyone's opinions on Gladiator ?

    I argee. This thread is about The Last Samurai not Gladiator. I will be interested in seeing some clips. It would have been nice if it was based on the book The Sun Rises by Colin Maxwell. In that book the civil war officer has to travel to Japan because he was framed for murder and is trying to stay free. While in Japan he falls in love with an Englishwoman who is a slave to one of Japan's greatest Samurai swordsman. If I remember the book spans about 10 years.

    Sorry if I helped to hijack this thread off-topic, but felix's first post just demanded my response (being a smart-ass who didn't like Gladiator). [​IMG]
    For the record, The Last Samurai sounds very intriguing, and I'm looking forward to hearing more about it. BTW, what role did Timothy Spall play in Vanilla Sky?

    Timothy Spall played the British advisor to Tom Cruise's character, who stood by him when he was injured, and the Seven Dwarfs were trying to take over the company.
    And, before you say "thanks," keep in mind that I liked Gladiator, too. [​IMG]

    I am very interested in this film since I am fascinated with that part of Japan's history. Let's hope it doesn't turn into the usual drek that spews forth from Hollywood these days. I can see it now...cut to slo-mo decaptiation showing every bit of gristle with DMX rapping in the soundtrack.[​IMG]

    He is damn funny and this should be hilarious
