The INCspotlight (6 Year Anniversary Special) - The Curse of Capistrano (1919) and The Mark of Zorro (1920)
In the words of Sir Anthony Hopkins, "there are many who would proudly wear the mask of Zorro." History has proven that to be true, but Douglas Fairbanks has the distinction of being the first.

Riddle me this: what do you get when you cross one of my favorite superheroes with my favorite film/literary genre?
Well well well...Talk Like a Pirate Day is upon us once again. And this year's review comes with a little bit of introspection, and the return of Tyrone Power to the INCspotlight.

I should have learned my lesson from The Crimson Pirate - when Burt Lancaster is the star of a swashbuckler, run away screaming. That being said, I went into The Flame and the Arrow thinking it would be just another bad post-World War II swashbuckler. I wasn't expecting it to piss me the **** off as much as it did.

Sir Francis Drake fights for queen and country in Seven Seas to Calais, another film that tries to recapture the magic of the Golden Age of swashbucklers.

For obvious reasons, I kinda have the number "three" on the brain right now. And that means it's finally time for me to review Disney's The Three Musketeers, which once upon a time was my favorite movie ever.

It's once again time for my favorite internet holiday - Talk Like a Pirate Day! And what better way to celebrate than by reviewing a pirate movie...from the Silent Era.

Douglas Fairbanks Jr. plays twin brothers on a mission of vengeance in The Corsican Brothers, an excellent swashbuckler I wish I'd heard of sooner.

Well, I'm back! Just in time for the INCspotlight's two-year anniversary! And as I did for my last anniversary post, I wanted to spotlight something - or in this case, someone - who has had a huge impact on my life.
The INCspotlight, formerly hosted on the website Channel Awesome, now has a new home on my own website! Putting the spotlight on classics that deserve to be remembered!
