The Spoils of Babylon, a Cool Satire on Soap Operas

SPOILS boxart

 

A one-hit mini-season wonder, The Spoils of Babylon a spoof on soap operas, has been released on DVD. The campy six episodes were shown on the Independent Film Channel in 2014 and are a satire to the movie making industry with cardboard cut-out sets, green screen epic views, one camera cinematography, simplified special effects and other cheaply devised movie tricks. Whew! That was a mouthful. That said, the 6 part miniseries homage strikes the silly heart strings resonating to those who have worked in the industry and love the life. For all you other folks this comedy’s just a flat out mash up of plots from Gone with the Wind, Giant, “Rich Man, Poor Man” and even a little bit of “Dynasty” to name a few. Read more

Last year’s Disney film Cinderella came out around the same time as this Friday’s release of Disney’s Zootopia. While Cinderella’s March release went on to make a massive amount of money for the mouse house, time will tell if an animated film directed to families will do the same. Certainly Zootopia has a good storyline with a message that it doesn’t matter who you are, you can make your dreams come true, “as long as you work hard to accomplish them”. With that in mind and an excellent voice cast too boot, the family film should start good out of the gate. Read more
