The Fly (1986) starring Jeff Goldblum, Geena Davis

The 1986 remake of The Fly is a very different take on the original story. In both, a young scientist transforms himself into a fly hybrid in an experiment gone horribly wrong. Here, Seth Brundle, a brilliant but eccentric scientist attempts to woo investigative journalist Veronica Quaife. How? By offering her a scoop on his latest research in the field of matter transportation. Imagine Star Trek‘s transporters working in real life … Which against all the expectations of the scientific establishment works! Up to a point. Brundle thinks he has ironed out the last problem when he successfully transports a living creature. But when he attempts to teleport himself, a fly enters one of the transmission booths … And Brundle finds he is a changed man.

The Longshot (1986), starring Tim Conway, Harvey Korman, Jack Weston, Jonathon Winters

 If you’re like me, you consider  Tim Conway  and  Harvey Korman  to be one of the classic comedy teams, and wish that they had worked together beside The Carol Burnett Show. Thankfully, they did!  The Longshot is an independent film  written by Tim Conway, co-starring Tim Conway,  Harvey Korman  (as well as Jack Weston, Ted Wass, and  Jonathan Winters).   The basic  plot is that a group of four life-long losers decide to take a chance for once in their lives, and place a large long-shot bet on a broken-down horse.   With borrowed money.   Borrowed from the mob.   Read More »The Longshot [Tim Conway, Harvey Korman]
