Thank you, J, (using the European spelling of his name from the traditional Irish "JJ") for the review of The Last Samurai. Did yawl realise.. that big chunks of that movie was filmed about 40 minutes away from where I grew up? My formative teenage years, anyway. They renamed "Taranaki" to "Tomanaki" while Tom Cruise was here.

Apparently, everytime Cruise's chopper (inside his traditional Japanese garb inside his traditional privately piloted helicopter) flew overhead, the wimin-folk of the district gave Tom the "Tomanaki Wave" which is: to bare their breasts at him. Like a Mexican wave but naffer - or, like a Mexican whore, only cheaper.
