Allllrighty Then!! What started as an episode about escape became rather important (and long as this is only 1 of 3!). It can be hard for stories about American history to avoid feeling like a lecture. Few of them clock in at less than 3 hours, either. Last of the Mohicans is significant for so many reasons, the easiest of which is that it is entertaining. It also has many layers woven within it that do not feel as outwardly powerful as they in fact are. Learning a thing or two and walking away without hating an entire group is not always an easy task. This movie can make you think without a need to make you angry.
What else can be said? Tune in to find out. Then come back to us in 2 weeks to find out what else goes alongside this story with our conclusion to "Last of the _____" group.

It's TV Time again!!! Join Matt as he acts like your personal TV guide. Television has been a great asset in learning the highs and lows of making serial entertainment. Modern media (Netflix, Amazon, Hulu) has learned from many of those lessons and started with a bang. Even Youtube is making original content. What a great time to absorb tons of visual fluff!! Staycations are now a possibility to catch up on your queue and binge some new shows at home. The quality of the home entertainment flood has increased drastically in the last decade or so. TV isn't necessarily in its death throes, but it is closer than some desire we imagine. Slip your shoes off & enjoy some joy over the babble box.
Our twitter is @CinemaSluts if you wanna find us there!!
Just for you peeps - Matt looked up the writers for Supergirl after all: half of 18 are women. Shane Black only wrote the 1st 2 LW films (3 & 4 were character writing credits). We discussed Jeffrey Wright in Casino Royale. He & Thandie Newton were in W (Powell & Rice), just in case you haven't had enough political input this year (wink wink nudge nudge).
Correction: Death style contractors are not a thing; Death STAR contractors was what he meant to say (as in Clerks - also applies to the thankless jizzmopper job).
