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 27 - Secondhand Lions (2003) - Jenn
This movie is a bit older that even I almost forgot about it. I’m not sure honestly if many people have heard of it but this feel good movie is definitely not one to be missed, and that’s "Secondhand lions". From the title, you might be thinking --what? But trust me this sweet movie might just be what you need if feeling down. This is about a boy who goes to stay with his rich uncles, and ends up having the family he always wanted, if his no good mom doesn’t come back and ruin everything. He also ends up teaching his uncles that maybe having him around isn’t so bad either.
Melanie Says - This reminds me of the old Disney movies like Candleshoe. If you haven't seen it you really should (although Michael Cane's accent takes a bit of getting used to lol). There are actually a lot of big names to look out for, some in young appearances but half the fun there is spotting them (or not if you are me - I just wait for Greg to tell me after guessing wrong a bunch of times).
Have you seen it? What did you think?
