The Fly

The Fly ★★★★½

Jeff Goldblum stars as a reclusive geek Seth Brundle who has unlocked the secret to teleportation, only he is struggling to make it work on live subjects. Geena Davis is the reporter looking for the big story, chronicling Brundle's trials and tribulations. Directed by David Cronenberg, this is one of the more gruesome body horror tales released in the 80s.

The onscreen chemistry between Goldblum and Davis translates from an off-screen real romance at the time. This is one of those rare few remakes that is better than the original, classic movie. The original movie lacked the special effects in this one. If you haven't seen this one, it's very recommended.
