A grubby PI (Adrien Brody) looks into the suicide of TV’s Superman George Reeves (Ben Affleck) in 1950’s LA. This was slow. Reeves was kind of a jerk who had discontentment with his career. He sits around in his Superman outfit and drinks and smokes and later burns the suit on a BBQ. Then he dies mysteriously. This was remarkably unsuccessful.
“That’s the best you were ever going to be. I knew that. Why didn’t you?”
“Superman doesn’t smoke.”
“Since when do suicides miss twice, lay down on the rug and start over?”
Saigon aka Off Limits (1988)
A Vietnam film with Willem Dafoe, Scott Glenn and Amanda Pays. It devours time.
Solitaire For 2 (1995)
A delightful Brit flick comedy with Amanda Pays (who wears horrid outdated clothes), the late Mark Frankel and Right Said Fred. It is sweet but there is no DVD!
Blazing Saddles (1974)
It’s not that funny.
The Bodyguard (1992)
Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner star in this froth.
The First Wives Club (1996)
Discarded first wives take revenge on their thick feckless ex-husbands. Daft.
