The Last of the Mohicans review

Posted : 8 months, 1 week ago on 8 April 2017 07:58 (A review of The Last of the Mohicans)

During the French and Indian War, Cora Munro and her younger sister Alice are on their way to Fort Henry, unaware that the fort, under the command of their father Colonel Munro, is besieged by Indians in league with the French. Leading the girls is Magua, a heinous Indian who has been cast out from the Huron tribe. En route, they meet Uncas, Chingachgook and the scout Hawkeye. Realizing Magua's identity, Hawkeye attempts to capture him, but the scoundrel eludes him. Next morning, the group is captured, but Uncas, Chingachgook and Hawkeye escape and rescue their party. Just as they approach the fort, Colonel Munro is forced to surrender with the agreement that the women and children be spared. Meanwhile, the Hurons, incited by Magua, attack the fort and a terrible massacre ensues. Magua takes Cora and Alice prisoner in the Delaware Indian camp. Soon after, Uncas arrives and reveals himself to be the "last of the Mohicans" and therefore a royal member of the Delawares. Attempting to accommodate royalty, a compromise is reached among the Indians: Cora is to go with Magua and Alice is to be freed. Later, Magua murders both Cora and Uncas but is felled by a bullet from Hawkeye. The Delawares then lament the passing of the last of the Mohicans.

Custer of Big Horn (With General Custer at the Little Big Horn) review

Posted : 8 months, 1 week ago on 8 April 2017 07:48 (A review of Custer of Big Horn (With General Custer at the Little Big Horn))

Lem Hawks, a civilian scout attached to General George Armstrong Custer, is attracted to Betty Rossman, the daughter of a pioneer. Rivaling Lem for Betty's affections is Captain Page, who serves under Custer. Unknown to Custer, Cheyenne Chief Little Horse meets with Sioux leader Gall, who is wanted by the Army, and Sioux medicine man Sitting Bull, who is known as "the brains of the Sioux nation." Worried about the loss of their buffalo and lands, the Indian leaders form an alliance to fight the white man. Learning that Gall is in the area, Custer sends Lem to the warrior's encampment. Lem tries to persuade Gall to discuss peace with Custer, and although Gall adamantly refuses the offer, an Indian named Bear promises Lem that Gall will visit the general. Lem returns to Custer with the news, unaware that Page and his men have surrounded and bayoneted Gall. When he hears of Gall's injury, Custer is outraged, but Page replies, "A dead Indian is a good Indian." The attack on Gall rallies the Sioux to action, and they launch a series of attacks on homesteads and wagon trains. One evening, while Page romances a married woman at a dance, Lem enters with the news that the Indians are on the warpath. As Custer spreads word of the situation among his officers, Lem dances with Betty. This enrages Page, who blames Lem for the injury to Gall. The two men fight, but Custer, reporting that he has been ordered to pursue the Indians located by Major Reno's scouting party, urges them to put their argument aside. In the meantime, there is a war council between the Sioux and the Cheyenne. The whites must go, they maintain, so that the Indian can roam the plains freely. A war dance is then performed to the accompaniment of drum playing and singing, but later, having been notified that U.S troops are approaching, the Indians ride away. Back at the post, Page apologizes for having resorted to lying in his courtship of Betty. As she bids Lem farewell, Betty begs him to return to her. The troops depart, with Reno in the lead, Captain Benteen to the left, and Custer to the northern end of the Indian village. During the battle between Custer and the Indians, Page dies in Lem's arms. Lem rides to notify General Terry of their plight, but by the time Terry's advance guard reaches the battlefield, Custer and his men are dead. Sitting Bull is captured and confined to a reservation until his death. Lem then returns to Betty and they embrace.

It's in the Air review

Posted : 1 year, 1 month ago on 7 November 2016 06:25 (A review of It's in the Air)

As a motorbike courier prepares to get on his bike he hums a romantic tune. Overheard by a passer-by who unknowingly sings along, the song is passed from person to person across the city from launderettes, to shop keepers, to taxi drivers to security guards. Journeying along the roads, through the streets and even in the metro, the song makes a romantic odyssey across Paris all the way back to the man who started it. A whimsical short film that captures the reason Paris is known as the City of Love.
