Some trailers of note

Really pretty trailer for the Christmas showcase movie from Disney, The Alamo. And a fun trailer for the upcoming Zatoichi feature film from Takeshi Kitano (for Windows users, the link will pop up a dialog box asking if you want to install the Japanese language character pack which, if you're like me, you'll never be able to locate, so just click the Cancel button).
My dad was a huge fan of the Zatoichi Blind Swordsman series, and it was contagious. The conceit of a blind samurai swordsman is a fun metaphor, and if the entire DVD series is too rich to purchase it's at least worth putting on your Netflix/Greencine rental list. The Kitano version will doubtless be more bloody.
I wonder if holding your sword with that strange backhand grip really works.
