    The Last Samurai - 2003
    "Great production value and the drama builds well through the film. The Japanese cast give great performances with Ken Watanabe really shining, could have done without Tom Cruise. Like many high budget American films the characters have no shades of grey and it is all good against evil. Entertaining nonetheless." -Bob Brown, AP {last-samurai55612622517191202.jpeg}

    Early samurai would fight on horseback, and their weaponry in addition to samurai swords was bows and arrows.
    Samurai would use wooden swords (Bokken) for practice for safety reasons as well as for preserving their real swords from unnecessary damage.
    A samurai's sword is his most prize and sacred possession.
    Japanese samurai sword was made by an intricate process of heating the steel, hammering it flat, then folding it, then hammering it flat again, and folding.
