The Way of the Samurai is a selfless one where you have to read books about it AND practice it. Which sounds like a lot of work to me but probably why there's no Samurai movie about me. Forrest Whitaker is mostly convincing as a Samurai but definitely convincing as a lover of books. He bonds with people over those bound pages, over ice cream, and an appreciation for pigeons so there's something for everyone! Which you see as we discuss it with special guest Chuck Vaughn! Especially if you're into racist old Italian men, a French ice cream man, a sassy well read girl named Pearline, and the GD Ghost Dog himself! This movie's ARF ARF AF dawg!
