Reviews: "The Hound Of The Baskervilles" (1983) And "The Sign Of Four" (1983) Starring Ian Richardson; Blu-ray Releases From Second Sight

It’s about as popular a sequel as World War Two, the fourth in, to many, a near-perfect trilogy of adventure films that helped define their decade, and the childhoods of millions. Indeed many try and revise history to erase it from their minds, considering Last Crusade the last hurrah. Like it or not, however, Disney know Indy = money given the near $800 million the fourth movie made on just shy of a $200 million budget. Almost nobody liked it, yet almost everybody went to see it. Therefore, after Disney’s epic purchase of LucasFilm, »
