cinema_as_it_is REVIEW: The Last Samurai

After Being Captured In Battle By Those He Was Forced To Fight, An Alcoholic Military Officer Must Learn The Ways Of The Ancient Japanese Warrior and Decide To Which Side His Loyalties Lay. With An Unexpected Sense Of Realism and Action, The Last Samurai Is Entertaining War Period Piece Despite Its Long Runtime. Tom Cruise's Performance As The Officer Turned Samurai Is Sensational. His Character Is An Unlikable Asshat At First But Through Some Strong Acting and A Commitment To Stunt Work, Cruise Breathes Some Life Into The Proceedings. Ken Watanabe Plays Katsumoto, The Warrior Who Befriends Cruise's Character and He Delivers a Towering Performance Filled With The Nobility Of A Actual Samurai. Timothy Spall Is Excellent In His Role As A Author/Photographer/Translator. Seizô Fukumoto Plays A Silent Samurai Character Here But By The End, He Became My Favorite Person Of The Film. Billy Connelly, Tony Goldwyn and Masato Harada Do Well In Their Supporting Roles. The Direction By Edward Zwick Is Dramatic, The Cinematography Is Grand and The Screenplay/Story Is An Arresting War Drama That Honors The Legend Of A Clan Of Extraordinary Warriors. It Won't Be The Last Time I Watch This Movie.

zooey_tsar Произведения кинематографа историй основанных на реальных событиях, всегда меня завораживали и интересовали.
Эта история меня впечатлила.
Сериал в которой фигурирует семья состоящая из матери и 3 детей (вообще их 4, один учится в школе-интернате), в которой появляется полтергейст в виде не спокойной души мужчины, который умер в этом доме.
Эта история не в стиле, когда кто-то рассказывает о паранормальном явлении, а когда приходи время продемонстрировать данное явление, загадочный дух не показывает себя. В сериале они называют этот эффект — «Эффект наблюдателя». Здесь дух того самого мужичка не боится никого и всячески готов продемонстрировать свою силу. Когда получилось идентифицировать его личность, оказалось, что и при жизни он не был самым приятным человеком, что его родственники не особо хотят говорить о нем и возвращаться в его дом…
Единственная сцена, которая показалась немного сомнительной, это когда производили процесс изгнания этого демона из дома, как-то всё просто произошло и почему этого не сделали раньше…
Актерской игре веришь, особенно хочется отметить Дженет (Элинор Вортингтон-Кокс), её роль была самая сложная и я ей поверила.
Вообщем, я очень рекомендую!
3 серии не так уж и много;)

dvd_collecter #TheEnfieldHaunting was amazing. In August 1977, single parent Peggy Hodgson called police to her rented home in Enfield after two of her four children claimed that furniture was moving and knocking sounds were heard on walls. The children included Margaret, age 13, Janet, age 11, Johnny, age 10 and Billy, age 7. A police constable saw a chair slide on the floor but couldn't determine if it moved by itself or was pushed by someone. Later claims included allegedly demonic voices, loud noises, thrown rocks and toys, overturned chairs and levitation of children. Reports of further incidents in the house attracted considerable press attention and the story was covered in British newspapers such as the Daily Mail and Daily Mirror, until reports came to an end in 1979. #TimothySpall #MauriceGrosse
