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.

It's our 'GoDaddy Coupon' page at http://scottsigler.com/godaddy that matters, man

This week we have a guest! Author Rob Reid joins us on the release day of his new book After On, to discuss one of his favorite movies — Shallow Grave.

Rob came to the office to discuss this awesome 1994 black comedy starring Christopher Eccleston, Ewan McGregor & Kerry Fox. If you haven’t seen it yourself, watch before you listen to us!
