Following a bomb scare in the 1960s that locked the Webers into their bomb shelter for 35 years, Adam now ventures forth into Los Angeles to obtain food and supplies for his family, and a non-mutant wife for himself.
What a wonderful little film this is, it even got a few laughs of out me.
Sissy Spacek and Christopher Walken steal this film, fantastic work between them. The dance they do when they finally open the shelter door was adorable.
Yet another reminder that 1999 was a truly astounding year for film. There is so much to enjoy in this film, whether it be the sixties swing/late 90's alt pop soundtrack or performances by both Christopher Walken and Nathan Fillion, it is easily one of the underrated gems of the year. Sissey Spacek might have had her best year as an actress as well, doing this alongside The Straight Story.
I keep watching this! Has so much charm.
¿qué tiene? ¿estoy mal?
(perdón pero: alicia silverston, christopher walken en piloto automático*, el baile de brendan fraser, todo es tan tonto que no puedo resistirme.)
*christopher walken en piloto automático es mejor actor que la mayoría de los actores echándole todas las ganas del mundo.
"Blast From The Past" is charming and funny indeed but it doesn't hold up to multiple viewings, I've come to discover.
I saw this one for the first time a long time ago with my then girlfriend and now wife as a date movie and it is pretty solid as a lightweight romantic comedy for such an occasion. Directed by relatively unknown director Hugh Wilson who has been responsible for all manner of lightweight entertainment like the first entry into the "Police Academy" franchise and the Shirley MacLaine's vehicle "Guarding Tess", "Blast From The Past" might be his best movie I've seen.
The ostensibly mismatched couple of Brendan Fraser and Alicia Silverstone work together pretty well and I particularly like the cast of secondary characters like Christopher Walken as a paranoid and goofy Republican, Sissy Spacek as his repressed and anxious wife and Dave Foley as a fast-talking gay stereotype with a couple of really funny lines.
Just watched it for the first time and wow: this was such a treat!!
This was a shocker for me. Such an interesting premise that was really well executed. This film additionally really altered the pacing of your typical 3 act structure, and while odd, I thought it worked close to flawlessly. The romance of the movie is a little thin, but it's a perfect time capsule of both the 60's and the 90's, with fun performances to boot. Definitely check this out.
I don't want to set the world on fireeeeeee
the Fallout 3 movie was pretty good
Brendan Fraser's full-throttle commitment to this fish out of water wacky story is commendable, and great screen chemistry with Alicia Silverstone make Black From the Past an infectiously charming watch.
I am such an idiot.
Concealed from the world above since birth, audiences are given a fresh perspective on modern society from a naive man in search for true love. Although out of sync with the people he encounters, his good nature and sense of moral decency make a big impression. Retro music and décor are used well to help further enhance the mood, while the quirky antics of Christopher Walken as an overly eccentric scientist and father, carry the film during first act, setting the story and pace for what is a fun off-beat romantic comedy.
Blast from the past, indeed..
