Luca, are you saying that you worked on 47 Ronin, or are you quoting? I can't tell. I find the Reddit thread remarkably typical and quite seriously boring. The comment quoted above about "Keanu faking his own death" is either ridiculous or disgusting or both. Someone has been reading and believing too much of that godawful fake celebrity news site.

I think that it could have been a very different film, but I still find it beautiful and fascinating.

If it helps, Keanu's immortality is a running joke on Reddit, ONTD, and the like. From what I've seen, the jokesters are huge fans of his. It's an affectionate salute, if you will.

@MmeRenard: I'm not sure what you're referring to, because there hasn't been any disagreement on this thread, at least not in the recent posts I see.

And yeah, the Keanu-is-immortal is a long-running joke on Reddit, from people who love him.

Yeah, I know. That one doesn't necessarily sound like a fan to me.

Say what anybody will about 47 Ronin, Keanu's performance in it is nuanced and lovely and I love the evolving relationship of Oishii and Kai. I do think the film ended up very different than initially envisioned, but I can't and won't disregard some wonderful performances and Rinsch's excellent direction.

MmeRenard - I was quoting. As is should have been obvious. But edited my post right now. Sorry, can't make it more obvious than that.



Could you please tell me exactly what is your problem with my posts?
Thank you.

And yes, it is interesting how many people are saying they liked the film.

Yes, that. And the comments on 'creative accounting'.
It just confirms some of my suspicions and feelings about the whole saga behind this movie.

Yep, "creative" even by big business standards. Fascinating to read about the way the money moves in Tinseltown.

I do hate that KR got tarred with the whole "biggest box office loser of 2013" brush, though. I want him to bust out of the gate with some crazy blockbuster thing that makes a ton of money and for which he ALSO gets long-overdue critical praise.

Luca, regarding
"MmeRenard - I was quoting. As is should have been obvious. But edited my post right now. Sorry, can't make it more obvious than that.

Thank you."

Sorry, there were not quotes, so I was not sure. I do not have a problem with your posts generally, and obviously you are here to discuss Keanu's films and you post a great number of fascinating links that I appreciate very much.
I was referring to posts by some people who appear to be here only to criticize other posters and who have little to say about Keanu's work and don't appear to like him much. It should be very obvious that I don't think that's you.

Jack, could you please remove that image? Thank you.

Anakin, I'm not referring to anything specifically in this thread and I am sorry that it is off-topic. I am editing those posts above and moving them where they are more appropriate. Thank you.

Done. So I know for the future, are we not allowed to post gifs or images here?

Sorry, but you didn't specifically mention names, so I was not sure.

Jack, I just found that image to be sort of annoying. Thank you for removing it.

Luca, I understand, I was trying not to mention names. I should have added clarification. Sometimes I disagree with you, but I respect and appreciate you because of your many thoughtful contributions. I think now that I've moved it to a different thread, if anyone sees themself in my post, they can draw their own conclusions. I don't know people's motivations, and tone is very hard to convey online.

It's allowed (just not too big, because those end up stretching the screen).

Hey!
My second forum post, unfortunately without the profile avatar :( Ani and I are still working on that one. 47 Ronin just came and went like a lightning in my place(Chennai, India). Before i could even put take a step out of my house, they removed it from theatres :( my friend in Italy was able to see it. Still cursing myself for that. Hope i get my hands on the DVD atleast.

today on ZDF, German public-service television broadcaster.
My Mum was so happy to tell me this, and quite disappointed that I don't like this one very much :-D

Rewatching this and liking it even better on second viewing. What an incredibly moving story. Kai's first kneel still takes my breath away,and KR makes me feel his pain, isolation, and hopeless love all the way through. The cast is all great and the story is gut-wrenching across the board. And boy, do the fight scenes look good. I hope more people will discover it and show it the love it deserves.
