An Intro From Dave
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 24 - Dead Again (1991) - Dave
Kenneth Branagh, Emma Thompson, Robin Williams. Williams has a little more than a cameo in this film but overall, his performance and delivery of some of the dialog steals the show. A bit of a thriller about a woman with memory loss but is retaining flashes of a past life where she was murdered. Excellent work. Part noir, part thriller, part murder mystery, all entertainment.
Melanie Says - I remember watching this in the movie theatre and thinking it was just totally inspired. Definitely a movie that is seriously underrated and I agree Dave, although Robin Williams part is small - it is one of the things I remember the most clearly!
