Background Info (from Wikipedia): The Fly is a 1986 American science fiction horror film… remake of the 1958 film The Fly, but retains only the basic premise of a scientist accidentally merging with a housefly during a teleportation experiment. Some critics saw the film as a metaphor for the AIDS epidemic. The score was composed by Howard Shore and the make-up effects were created by Chris Walas, who won the Academy Award for Best Makeup.

This week’s movie picks are:

Jason’s Pick:

Philadelphia (1993)
