Oh, Strider. I want to love you but if you keep dragging these hapless halflings up mountains and getting them stabbed with Morgul-blades, I am revoking your Mifune status.
Speaking of Toshiro, he is further evidence, if any was needed, that my mother and I have the same taste in men, which is kind of weird. We are both very fond of that scene in Seven Samurai where Kikuchiyo strips down to his underwear to catch fish with his hands. I am also fond of him laughing maniacally as the trussed-up bandit Tajomaru in Rashomon, but maybe that's just me.
