Re: Tao Okamoto/Mariko Yashida Thread
Now that I've finally watched the movie again, I like Mariko more than I thought I did. Caught up some subtle things. The small facial/eye expressions, manner of speech, and the way when Wolverine wakes up from his nightmare, Mariko doesn't freak out and instead calmly places her hand on his. Damn, she grew on me. I actually now like the slow part of the movie (Logan and Mariko in the cabin) a lot. I bought that transformation from a cold, distanced person into a little more open one. She is a lot like Logan in a way. I originally felt that Mariko's character wasn't that good, but now it's the opposite.
Both japanese actresses were really, really good.
