This is one of Tom Cruise's best and one you never really see mentioned (much like Oblivion). Absolutely fantastic cast, great story and a satisfying ending.

I think this movie got hate early on because everyone thought Tom Cruise WAS a samurai...but samurai is plural in this instance and is not about him. If you havent see it, I strongly recommend doing so. If you haven't see it in awhile, here is a nice reminder.

you'll enjoy it. it's fuckin intense.

movies tried so much harder 2000-2010 than now.

you know, i really do believe this, awesome video quality, great sound quality/music/scores/soundtracks, etc., shit didn't get spoiled by social media spoilers, movies went into the theater and then took months to come out on dvd, so people felt the need to get into a theater to see shit.






RIP 2000-2010.

Did you watch this because you’ve been playing Ghosts of Tsushima? Because I’ve been thinking about it a lot when I play it :ROFLMAO:

Never seen it. Tom Cruise is a hard watch for me, especially after his Oprah show.
