LAST OF THE MOHICANS: 25th Anniversary

StorySmack Episode #23

Sponsored by 'Stamps.com promo code' page at http://www.scottsigler.com/godaddySo we’re a few weeks early on this celebration. Sue us. Keep in mind that I’m just a small-town pizza lawyer, but I know how to defend against egregious lawsuits.

This movie stars three-time oscar winner Daniel Day Lewis and Madeleine Stowe, but the show is completely stolen by Wes Studi. Studi’s portrayal of Magwa is one of my favorite roles of all-time — positively bad-ass. And this flick? Yeah, it’s got lots (and lots) of violence.
