Comments– Well that was disgusting.  The one thing I absolutely love about 80’s sci-fi movies is the excellent special effects work, and The Fly was no different.  I thought this was a memorable movie, but had to bump up the score to a “good” because of the special effects.  I’v never seen this, or the original Fly movie before, and was not sure what to expect.  I would argue that this was really more of a character study than an action movie, which wasn’t at all what I thought it would be.  It would have been neat to see it done the other way around, where the movie spent 25 minutes becoming the fly, and the other hour and change
being the fly.  As it stands, though, it was a very interesting movie, and I thought Geena Davis and Jeff Goldblum did a great job.  This stands as separate from other 80’s sci-fi horror movies, but that isn’t a bad thing in my book.  We’re definitely interested in watching the sequel soon enough.  Good-Memorable.
