Pretend that I am a substitute blogger and we are going to watch a movie today instead of reading about Mr. Shife's latest and greatest adventures (part of the reason I don't feel like posting is because the creative tank is almost empty.)
My pick would be "The Last of the Mohicans" with Daniel Day-Lewis. It's a movie that checks all of the boxes for me: amazing story, awesome action, beautiful cinematography, extraordinary characters, and dazzling dialogue. Below I shared a quote from the movie where Cora tells Duncan that he is a big old turd but in a diplomatic way.Duncan: You are defending him because you've become infatuated with him!
Cora Munro: Duncan, you are a man with a few admirable qualities, but taken as a whole, I was wrong to have thought so highly of you.
