The Spoils Of Babylon On IFC
I haven't seen The Spoils Of Babylon, that begins airing on IFC tomorrow, but based on the ads it looks like good ridiculous fun. It's a spoof of the epic novel TV movies we grew up watching in the 1980s. A multi generational tale of ill gotten goods and, I'm guessing, a touch of incest. All that and expansive panoramic shots with equally epic over acting.
It has an all star cast, including the hysterical Kristen Wiig, Tim Robbins, Michael Sheen, Tobey Maguire, and Haley Joel Osment (Who I don't think I've seen in anything since that little ghost movie he was in).
I have high hopes for this one. I think it's a pretty safe bet.
