Movies I Forgot Exsisted: Michael

It’s hard to forget this 1996 comedy about Michael (John Travolta), anĀ archangel who for some reason is living in a motel drinking beer, smoking cigarettes and has a very active libido…the libido line is the exact phrasing from the movie’s synopsis. The film was meant as comedy with some preachy subplots/messaging. It had very mixed reviews, but proved to be interesting enough of a concept to make over $90 million at the box office. Even though the 90’s seems like last decade, this film is getting close to being 20 years old. Because of this fact it’s extremely hard for me to remember much of anything from this flick. But if there is one thing I do remember, other than the image of John Travolta with wings, is the dance scene. There is nothing better than watching Travolta break it down in a film. This might not be as good as Saturday Night Fever, or the “batman” in Pulp Fiction, but Michael does have some unique moves.
