The Last Samurai DVD

02.23.2004

Yeah, I realize that I'm just beating a dead horse at this point, but I'm a fanboy at heart and when there's a movie that I really like (it was my #2 movie of 2003, after all), I want to push it as best as I can here. THE LAST SAMURAI wasn't as grand a success as lots of people had anticipated in North America, but according to BoxOfficeMojo.com, the film is cleaning up internationally and may just finish with close to $500 million overall ($110M from North America), making it the 2nd most successful Tom Cruise movie ever...after MISSION IMPOSSIBLE 2! Not bad for a film that "didn't do well".  Thanks to 'Tuukka' for that head's up.

The film's 2-disc Special Edition DVD is slated for May 4th, so be sure to, at the very least, rent it at that time, and give it a shot in your homebase. If you really don't like it, drop me a line and tell me to go f*ck myself. It's all good. I really think most people will enjoy this movie. DavidDVD just received a revised copy of the cover, which may have been part of the problem in North America, as the film didn't exactly receive the best marketing campaign (even I thought it looked like crap before seeing it) You can now pre-order the DVD at Amazon.com, and scroll a little further down to see its jampacked extras. Great movie that looks like a great dvd!
