The Manhattan Project (1986) does not take place in Manhattan at all (unlike theÂ super-secret government project of the same name), but there is a plutonium bomb built by a high-school student who, in real life, would probably end up riddled with cancerous tumors from radiation poisoning, but the movie goes in a different direction.
Deborah M. Staab usually writes about 400 words and then has a cup of coffee. Her Cine-meh House is a regular series of movie commentaries. The pithy musing focus on old, forgotten, sometimes really bad movies from the 1980s, a time when she and her brother watched many a film while their Dad snoozed in the aisle seat.
