The (slightly) less silly of Richard ‘Superman’ Donner’s 1985 fantasies (the other being, natch, The Goonies) with Matthew Broderick on the run (good so far) hooking up with, respectively, wolf and hawk shapechangers Rutger Hauer and Michelle Pfeiffer for a bit of bishop swatting. Leo McKern turns in a fine Benedictine cameo, and The Alan Parsons Project play on. In fact, between the soundtrack for this and the frequent use of Sirius on Ron-Reagan-Jr-period Record Breakers to introduce an in-studio record attempt, didn’t ver kids of the ’80s have more than enough exposure to the former Pink Floyd engineer’s prognum opus?
