Marine biologist or King Leonidas: it's a toss-up.

I don't remember much about this one. At the time I thought there was not much to it, even for a family picture.

A friend of mine's daughter had it on for weeks a few years ago. I thought it was mildly amusing, but definitely for the younger female set.

Correct-o. The Last of the Mohicans (1936).



Based on the 1896 James Fenimore Cooper novel. This is the fourth version of this story and according to Michael Mann was the version he followed for his 1992 film and you can see the similarities. I ran across this movie while browsing through the Amazon Prime selections, it's a pretty rough copy.

Starring the inimitable Randolph Scott, incredibly already his 34th film including minor parts. Also starring Bruce Cabot and Binnie Barnes.

Correct.

"Pepsi Perfect" is just one of many predictions about the year 2015 that the movie got slightly wrong.

True, but I love my new hoverboard.


Every once in a while, quite inexplicably, things actually go according to plan.

I can tell you who it is, who probably made it and what it's about. Beyond that, I haven't a clue what it is.
