Blu-ray Review: The Last of the Mohicans (1992)

Some movie posters are unforgettable regardless if you’ve seen the film in question or not. I remember The Last of the Mohicans as one such poster that was alive with intensity as it hung in the widow of my local video store. Now the ‘90s epic charges its way to…

Blu-ray Review: Whirlpool (1949)

Twilight Time Movies build upon their catalogue of Twentieth Century Fox classics with Otto Preminger’s Whirlpool, now on Blu-ray, a crime-laden film noir that uses a socialite’s undiagnosed kleptomania as a device in a cunning scheme to fuel one’s greed and fraudulent lifestyle.

Blu-ray Review: Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991)

Some movies define their respective year and you cannot think back to 1991 without the Kevin Costner blockbuster Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves entering your mind, whether you want it to or not. I actually didn’t see the film in its entirety until last year but was well familiar with…

Today Andrew Jackson is regarded as one of American’s most controversial Presidents, but he’s also one of the country’s most interesting historical figures due to his humble beginnings, decorated military service, fiery temperament and rise to the land’s highest office. One of the most common talking points of Jackson’s legacy…
