A Lack of Humility Before Nature

Splendid News for New Yorkers with refined taste - the Quad Cinema is running a miniature Jeff Goldblum retrospective in February! As of now they're showing 12 movies, but the press release promises more will be announced -- I am really deeply hoping that the titles among the unannounced-so-far are two of his goofiest mid-80s vehicles, 1985's  Transylvania 6-5000 and 1988's Earth Girls are Easy, which would also function as a "Geena Davis Double Bill," aka four of the finest words in the English language. 

Anyway of the 12 they are definitely showing there are the Obvious Musts like the first two Jurassic Park films and my beloveds David Cronenberg's The Fly and the best of the Body Snatcher bunch the 1978 one with Donald Sutherland, and then there are some I haven't seen -- I've never seen John Landis' Into the Night with Jeff & Michelle Pfeiffer, now have I seen the 1990 serial killer slash Satanic Panic thriller called Mister Frost, nor crazily enough have I ever seen 1984's The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension, which seems a thing that should be rectified this time around. Check out the whole schedule here!

Aw, look at dorky Geena Davis in that pic! I just saw "In a World..." where she has basically a cameo and it made me miss her.
