yeah I read the book and liked it. I can't wait to see the movie.
i think ken watanabe is a bad ass actor.
and ziyi zhang is gorgeous and also a great actor.
ive never read the book or seen it performed, but it should be stunning based on those two actors alone
i am disappointed that ziyi zhang flopped her name around to americanize it though. hardly necessary!
The book is awesome. The movie looks amazing. I smell Oscar noms.
I watched the trailer, and i noticed that they use music from the Last Samurai, maybe something to do with Watanabe being in it. looks good though.
They use scores from prior films in new film trailers so that people who liked the film with that particular musical piece would be attracted to this film. rarely do they use original work in trailers. thats what made me mad when I saw the corpes Bride trailer, they used nightmare before Christmas' score. But its how it works.
But I Love Xiyi, and I think it's ok she moved her name around. it just proves how successful she really is, that she'd have to adjust her name because Americans are ignorant to her culture.
