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 23 - A League Of Their Own (1995) - Jenn
This movie is a great reminder that women can do anything they set their mind to. Even play softball in a actual league when all the men have gone to war. "A League of Their Own" is about two sisters who love softball. Though one is better at it then the other. A scout seeing their games asks them, well the older sister anyways, if she’d be interesting in joining or auditioning for a pro league. Turning it down, it’s actually her sister that ends up talking her into it, not wanting to be stuck in the town she’s in forever. I think some of us can relate to that. Not only does this movie show the power and heart of women. The message is phenomenal. If you have a dream and believe in it, nothing is impossible unless you give up.
Melanie Says - I never really watched this one but I know it is loved by many. I think just because baseball really isn't a thing in England. Lots of big names in this though!
