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 4 - Blades of Glory (2007) - Jenn
This has to be one of my favorite movies about friendship out there. "Blades of Glory". I remember seeing in the theaters over and over again, because I just couldn’t get enough of it, which at that time was rare for me. This movie about skating rivals turned friends is absolutely hilarious. It basically starts as them being rivals in men's figuring skating, but doing something stupid and getting banned. A few years later they realize that the only way to get around the ban is to team up and enter teams figure skating, which happens to open a whole lot of other problems including new rivals. Do these two work together and win the gold? Well you just need to watch and see for yourselves because I promise you that you will definitely laugh from start to finish in this movie.
Dave Says - This movie is a little out of wheel house but it works. Not a huge Will Ferrell fan and wasn't a Napoleon Dynamite fan. But if you put them together in an ice skating movie (also not my usual thing), maybe it can work wonders.
Melanie Says - There is literally noone in this movie that I would normally bother with. I will confess the music in the trailer made me pay attention - and as stupid and crazy as this movie is - it actually works!
