Ivory Tower (1999) from Johnny Web (Uncle Scoopy; Greg Wroblewski)
|Even those of you who don't belive in God
probably do believe in a natural order of the universe.
The two rocks dropped from the Tower of Pisa will hit the
ground together, hippos don't fly, and Julia Roberts will
be the only one in her family to take one of those best
It is the consistency of the universe that is the basis for all human learning, and all human survival. We are here now because our ancestors managed to figure out to adopt puppies and avoid sharks, rather than the other way around.
|But modern scientists have been grappling with the issue of chaos, beginning with the ability of man to recognize unpredictable elements in the universe, and to manage them. For example, a drop of water on the exact gravitational top of a perfect sphere - which way will it travel? We don't know, but recognizing our inability to predict this improves our ability to learn and survive. We may even be able to use the very unpredictability of certain things, like sub-atomic particles, as part of our advancement as a species.||
arises when we fail to distinguish the predictable and
the chaotic, and so it was with me and this movie. I knew
it would be bad. But I also knew it had Kari Wuhrer in
it, so I didn't think I needed any chaos theory to
determine that she would be naked. Grade b movie, r
rating, starring Kari Wuhrer - you know she's going to be
naked, and you hope other women will be as well.
Lo, and behold, I turn my back for five minutes and the natural laws of the universe are repealed. Rivers run up hill, dogs can outrun light, yuppies hate Starbucks, and Kari Wuhrer kept her clothes on for the entire movie.
Only one question - if you have a female role that requires no nudity, how did Kari come up to the top of your casting list?
|Dreadful movie. Lower
quality than a made-for-network-TV flick, trying to cash
in on interest about the microchip industry and
Michael Ironside plays a new V.P. hired to manage a loose high-tech organization to greater efficiency. His Draconian ways cause dissension and intrigue and that kinda discordant shit. Or maybe the new guy is even more than he seems to be. Is he working for the competition, or ........
There is a surprise ending. It may fool you, but if it does please call me because I have some property I'd like you to take a look at. Actually, you may be surprised, but you surely won't care.
