I've complained about this repeatedly in movies; it's that annoying form of exposition that's nothing but characters flat out describing the relevant and non-relevant names and organizations that are offscreen as if this is all super important setup to absorb, yet by the end of the movie, I can tell you EXACTLY what happened, but I'll be damned if I remember a single name of one of 13 samurai in the title of your FRICKEN' MOVIE.
