A Pair Of Reissued ’80s Movies Leads New Films On Dvd | Deseret News

This sequel to the hilarious hit The Gods Must Be Crazy (1985) follows hapless Xi (pronounced Key), a gentle bushman in the Kalahari Desert (played by N!xau), as he is forced to again approach civilization when two young children from his tribe are inadvertently kidnapped by ivory poachers. Writer-director Jamie Uys has a talent for sweet, gentle comedy and a keen eye for slapstick timing, and if this one isnt quite up there with the hilarity of the first, its still quite funny and endearing. (Available at warnerarchive.com) Modern Romance (Sony Choice/DVD, 1981; R for sex, nudity, language). In his second writing-directing effort (after the faux documentary Real Life), Albert Brooks stars as the ultimate neurotic, repeatedly sabotaging his relationship with his on-again, off-again girlfriend (Kathryn Harrold). The film also skewers the movie business with lots of inside gags. On the romantic side, this is a dark comedy, and Brooks isnt afraid to portray his character as alternately charming and irritating, resulting in a film that is only on-again, off-again funny. In his later pictures Brooks still played neurotics but managed to soften his own characters to make them more appealing.

Absurd Radiation Limits Are A Trillion Dollar Waste – Forbes

These regs cover situations like finding a national nuclear waste disposal site ( Where? ) and clean-up of radiologically-contaminated sites. EPA is just walking away from some of these sites since they know we cant clean-up to these ridiculously low levels ( Florida Clean-Up ). This latest step by the EPA to revise the radiation threat levels seems to be driven by none other than the Government Accounting Office itself ( GAO Wants Action ). More and more reports indicate that the forced evacuation in Fukushima was not necessary ( Fukushima 2.25 ). The panicked Japanese authorities were following old American plans under the ALARA policy (As Low As Reasonably Achievable) that has always been misinterpreted to mean any and all radiation is dangerous no matter what level.
