A classic

3 years, 5 months ago at Aug 23 9:11
I had already seen this one but it was really ages ago so I thought it was time for a re-watch. Anyway, this time again, I wasn't disappointed. Indeed, up to that point, David Cronenberg had been involved with some rather gruesome horror features for a limited audience and it was his first mainstream project, if I recall correctly. The most startling aspect with this movie, in my opinion, is that ... read more

To start off with, The Fly is 4-in-1; Horror, sci-fi, tragic-romance and a film with a message. Let's start with the first shall we?

Horror: To the modern audience he is known for crime-thrillers but to fans he is best known for the 80's body-horrors which had originally propelled him to stardom. The Fly is his best effort to date. Chris Walas's ground-breaking imagining of what would... read more

Description: David Cronenberg's remake of the 1958 classic transcends its genre to become a moving portrait of a man and his lover attempting to come to terms with his physical disintegration. "The Fly" stars Jeff Goldblum as a spaced-out scientist who invents a genetic teleportation machine and accidentally transforms himself into a fly ... (more)

"In this intellectual remake of the 50's classic, Jeff Goldblum portrays a professor whose experiments metamorphisizes him into a large, hairy, decayed-looking housefly. And in the process, still gets to score with super-fly 80's beauty, Geena Davis. *sigh*....only in the movies. "

"18.10.2012 "I was not pure. The teleporter insists on inner pure. I was not pure." "I don't know what you mean." "A fly... got into the... transmitter pod with me that first time, when I was alone. The computer... got confused - there weren't supposed to be two separate genetic patterns - and it decided to... uhh... splice us together. It mated us, me and the fly. We hadn't even been properly introduced." "

"Oct. 8th (rewatch) It's been so long that this almost felt like my first time visiting Cronenberg's scifi-horror shocker, The Fly. I'd forgotten just how fun the ideas are in this film. And while I remember the crux of Jeff Goldblum's character and performance, I'd forgotten just how good Geena Davis is here. She strikes me as one of the smartest and most capable actresses to emerge in the 80s, even if she doesn't always jump to mind when considering the best actresses of the era. The Fly i"

Interesting film facts (389 movies items)

"The inspiration for the design of the telepods came from the shape of the cylinder in director David Cronenberg's vintage Ducati motorcycle. Brundlefly's "vomit drop" was, in reality, made from honey, eggs, and milk. After watching some of his early films, director Martin Scorsese asked to meet David Cronenberg. After meeting him, Scorsese said he looked like a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon. That is why Cronenberg gives himself a cameo as a doctor in this film. "

Movie Diary 2012 (551 movies items)

"19.7. Aluksi katsomiskokemus tasapainoilee rooliinsa erinomaisesti sopivan Goldblumin ja aivan hukassa olevan Davisin suoritusten seuraamisen välillä, mutta kärpäsen saadessa hiljalleen yliotetta elokuva paranee paranemistaan. Cronenberg on tunnetusti mestari satuttamaan ja karmaisemaan samanaikaisesti, ja teleportaation väärinkäytöstä otetaan kyllä kaikki ilo irti. Erikoistehostetyöskentelylle vielä mittavat kunniamaininnat: voi vain ihmetellä, miten vitun suurta takapakkia suuren"

"I was around seven when I watched this movie for the first time. Watching Jeff Goldblum turn into the fly made my skin crawl. When his teeth and fingernails started coming off... I think I'm still bothered by that to this day. Not painful at all for adults, but pure horror for kids. "
