The Medusa Touch (1978 UK)

Rare sci-fi starring role for Richard Burton. This was late in his career and he plays an unlikable, creepy sort in this one, someone who finds out that he has vast telekinetic powers which can be used for acts of vast destruction. Lee Remick co-stars as a psychiatrist who gradually comes to believe the unbelievable. Most of the film is actually a flashback. The key scene and what everyone who has seen this remembers is when Burton's character shows off his power on a flying commercial airliner. This is also part murder-mystery, but Burton's character - the supposed victim - is hard to kill due to supposedly superhuman will to live.  Rather hackneyed and a bore... similar to The Fury (78) from around the same time.  BoG's Score: 4 out of 10
