Post 47 Ronin (AKA: Hollywood and foreign stories)
To Hollywood: please just stop making crappy versions of old stories from history. 47 Ronin could be forgiven for the effort if it just left out the cliched fantasy elements like the witch. If you are going to make these films, at least put some effort into understanding the historical and cultural context so that you don't completely come across as money-grubbing assholes. I hope this film bombs, because that seems to be the only way you will learn.

While I'm dreaming: please tell Emily Blunt to come to my place and sit on my...lap.

Yeah the trailer for this film was yawn-inducing, I can see why it was put on the shelf for over a year.

My nephew saw it yesterday and said it wasn't very good.
