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 9 - Four Rooms (1995) - Dave
Anthology movie with 4 stories in a hotel and the adventures of a bellhop that has a rather interesting list of guests on one fateful night. Of the recognizable names, Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino are 2 of the writers/directors involved.
Melanie Says - Can't I will watch pretty much anything that Quentin Tarantino puts out and when you add huge names such as Tim Roth, Antonio Banderas, Marissa Tomei, and even Madonna, just to kick things off, this is one of those movies that you can't believe wasn't a bigger hit. It leans way more dark comedy than most other Tarantino stuff and Dave's right when he say an anthology (with all the guests sort of having their own story) although I never thought of it like that. If you haven't seen it I recommend it!
