The Man with Two Brains, a review by Rich


Man with Two Brains



A wacky brain surgeon, married to a beautiful but coldhearted woman, falls in love with the brain of another lady who has everything he wants... except a body!

Typical zany Steve Martin film, he became rather typecast at this stage of his career, and this is one of his less prestigious attempts. The storyline is ridiculous of course, the filming style and music very late 70's early 80's in style, which dates it considerably. The direction keeps it just on the right side of silly, so it is watchable.
Kathleen Turner is a leading lady I would typically not rate, but I was surprised watching this movie that 20 years ago she was an absolutely stunning voluptious woman, and perfect for the role as the scheming P.T. temptress.
Put your brain to one side and just enjoy the slapstick and whackiness of thisd film to enjoy.

Babylon A.D., a review by Rich


Babylon A.D.



Veteran-turned-mercenary Thoorop (Diesel) takes the high-risk job of escorting a woman from Russia to America in a post-apocalyptic world. But it isn't long before they are pursued by warring factions who are both determined to take the girl, and it is up to Thoorop to stop them.

Ignore the trailer for this film, it will give the impression this is worth spending your hard earned dosh on, it isn't. A woeful effort which is reminiscent of the superior Children of Men, the effects and action don't get going till the last half an hour, and these are so choppy it is difficult to understand what is actually happening.
The acting is poor, the action pedestrian and badly filmed, direction amateur and characters unbelievable. An awful ending where it is jumped several years in advance without explanation or what happened in-between culminates this waste of viewing time.
 :yawn:

This is a series, where I really like the first few episodes. But sadly it's a one joke premise which grows tired quickly. Still I like the pilot very much so.
