I don't think I've seen this film in ages... I'd have to return to it to remind myself of it. It was pretty much the Geena Davis show, with Samuel L.

Released in 1996, it was kind of like Bourne before Bourne - a trained killing machine/human suffering from memory loss, starts to regain pieces of her past, when that past catches up to her, and, in turn, finally realizes who/what she really is.

I plan on being there this year; missed it the last couple of years. I might actually be on a panel... details on that later, once everything is worked out finalized; regardless, I'll be there, panel or not. Maybe I'll run into some of you... maybe not.
