Robin’s Week #30 Recommendation: The Plague Dogs (1982)

Watership Down was one of my favorite books as a child. I can still remember my father taking me to see the movie in the theater when I was 8 or 9. I think I loved it so much because … Continue reading

Robin’s Week #29 Recommendation: Thunderbolt and Lightfoot (1974)

Robin’s Week #24 Recommendation: Paan Singh Tomar (2010)

I have a thing for outlaw anti-heroes. Particularly guys who were basically good men forced to become outlaws in order to get justice or freedom, like Ned Kelly, Rob Roy, and William Wallace. Paan Singh Tomar was just such a … Continue reading
