Speak for yourself, ace.

i liked the fly more than i thought i would when i saw it. it is cheesy and sort of silly by today's standards and i grew up with the 80's version but the older version was a lot of fun. i would re-watch it anytime.

I rewatched the Fly 58, and I was reminded how disturbed I was over the hydraulic press death concept when I was a kid. Very disgusting & horrifying.

The film had some slow parts. The concept of the doctor's mind becoming more fly-like wasn't expanded upon; whereas Pouge & Cronenberg did a good job expanding on that and some teleportation issues. The 58's whiteheaded fly ending will go down as one of the best ever made.

Cronenberg's version sated my gore lust but the original was great too.

I thought the story had some anti-ubermensch (Nietsche), that being going beyond human, human restraints, morality... wanted to be the only insect politician, but they're aren't any... What'd you think?
