The corpses all hang headless and limp bodies with no surprises and the blood drains down like devil’s rain we’ll bathe tonight I want your skulls I need your skulls I want your skulls I need your skulls Demon I am and face I peel to see your skin turned inside out, ’cause gotta have you on my wall gotta have you on my wall, ’cause I want your skulls I need your skulls I want your skulls I need your skulls collect the heads of little girls and put ’em on my wall hack the heads off little girls and put ’em on my wall I want your skulls I need your skulls I want your skulls I need your skulls

Me too, but I'm still excited about this movie none-the-less. Looks interesting at least, which is more than I can say for most movies coming out these days =/.

Cruise needs to work on his war face. Looks to be relieving himself.
We often went to the cinema, the screen would light up and we would tremble, but also, increasingly often, Madeleine and I were disappointed. The images had dated, they jittered, and Marilyn Monroe had gotten terribly old. We were sad, this wasn't the film we had dreamed of, this wasn't the total film that we all carried around inside us, this film that we would have wanted to make, or, more secretly, no doubt, that we would have wanted to live.

Never-Before-Seen Footage From The Last Samurai
Source: Warner Bros. Pictures

Warner Bros. Pictures has provided ComingSoon! with a first look at never-before-seen footage from Tom Cruise's The Last Samurai. You can view the 2 1/2 minute clip in QuickTime below.

After examining the ravages of 19th century America in his Academy Award-winning Civil War drama Glory, director Edward Zwick explores the birth of modern Japan in this sweeping epic set in Japan during the 1870s. Tom Cruise stars as Capt. Nathan Algren, a respected American military officer hired by the Emperor of Japan to train the country's first army in the art of modern warfare. As the Emperor attempts to eradicate the ancient Imperial Samurai warriors in preparation for more Westernized and trade-friendly government policies, Algren finds himself unexpectedly impressed and influenced by his encounters with the Samurai, which places him at the center of a struggle between two eras and two worlds, with only his own sense of honor to guide him.

Saw the trailer before Matrix: Reloaded (opening night... mmmmm).  It came off like they were trying to pass Cruise as an actual last Samurai.  You know?  One of the guys in the theater was like, "Why does it always have to be a white guy??"

So he's playing an American, eh?  That makes more sense.

I'm half-interested, and half-too-entirely-obsessed-with-Rings-and-Matrix-and-Kill-Bill-to-care.

I'll see it... or I won't.
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free, silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands, with all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves, let me forget about today until tomorrow.

I thought it looked like a pud, but Tom's face is getting more beautiful and characterful with age, so I will be seeing that.

HOLY SHIT!!! tom cruise really immersed himself in this samurai role, he's a sure bet for the oscar!!!  at first i hardly recognized him!
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

He must be playing three roles, because:
