Quantrill’s Raiders is filled with howling historical inaccuracies. It's basically an outlaw movie, a standard-issue studio Western. We’re talking a B movie with B movie writing, B movie acting, and B movie action.
Though it’s inspired by the Kansas-Missouri Border War and is filled with characters drawn from history, Kansas Raiders says a lot more about assemblyline Hollywood moviemaking than it does about the era which it purports to depict.
Fly Away Home is one of those “children’s films” too good to be left to just the kids. Inspired by a true story, it's a ravishingly beautiful, often very funny, sensitive study about family and human/animal interaction.
