A year ago I was tasked with a top secret mission. Melanie: I want a list for next July. Like the opposite of everybody else’s “Christmas in July”. Something with a “Dave spin” on it. So my mind went to work. It almost took on several different incarnations before landing here. It could have Christmas Horror. It could have been Halloween themed. Then it started as a random list of movies that got buried in the sands of time that people forgot. That's actually our specialty. But I also included a few that made money but seemed to have been forgotten since then, as I haven’t heard much about them since their release. So hop in, buckle your seatbelt, and remember to keep your hands inside the ride at all times.
Day 16 - Super 8 (2011) - Dave
For all the success this movie has had, it doesn't seem to have reached the level it deserved as the masterpiece it truly is. It should be seen a future classic but I hear very little about it nowadays. Right after the release, the talks died down like it didn't even exist. Very reminiscent of classics such as E.T., Close Encounters and The Goonies.
Melanie Says - I vaguely remember this, but I more remember the fact that like you said it just sort of went away even though it has all the right hallmarks to make it a cult classic. Great pick Dave!
Have you seen it? What did you think?
