Jenn - Jennifer Rhodes met Melanie back when True Blood was popular and they have been friends ever since. She loves TV (especially things that make you smile), Doctor Who, Finding new shows, and regularly provides awesome fandom items for Muser Giveaways. Jennifer is now a proud member of the VIPers - the Melanie's Muses Spotlight Feature Team!
I remember first watching this movie, and thinking what is this but the more it got into the movie, the more excited I got. That movie was "Blast from the Past". It’s actually a very interesting theory. Guy builds bomb shelter. Is convinced there was a nuclear bomb attack , he takes his family down into the shelter. Was there a nuclear bomb? Well I could tell you but seeing as this is a older movie, you’ll just have to watch for yourself. I can tell you this family ends up staying underground since 1962 until present day, which then was about the year 1999. So this movie really gets going whenever the son goes up to get supplies and meets a girl, his words. Does everything work out for him and this family? Well you just need to watch and see, but I can tell you that this forgotten treasure is definitely one of my favorites.
This movie could easily have ended up on the "Movies that time forgot" list but Jenn and I love it SO much that it got a feature all to itself! This is definitely showcasing Brendan Fraser at his best. The dialogue, the timing, the way he straight plays off of Alicia Silverstone's total disbelief - just all fabulous. Throw in Christopher Walken and Sissy Spacek as supporting cast and this movie has something for everyone.
Check out the trailer below, and as a bonus I added in my favorite scene - THE DANCE! I mean I have to give it to Alicia, it would probably have been the thing that made me look twice too!
