Forgotten Flix

We're talking about the movies YOU grew up with!

Six Degrees Summer Tourney Week 1

So let’s try this gang.

A couple of people have emailed me, expressing their interest to enter.  I encourage all of you to do so.  Fun, fabulous prizes at the end of the summer.

The rules are simple, email me ( with your links between the two actors or actresses listed.  Points will be given for brevity or for creativity or for however the committee feels they should score it.

All entries will be anonymously submitted to the judges, so don’t think there will be any bias (unless of course you pander to some of Joel’s movie fetishes).  Judges may rotate from week to week, so don’t try and game it by sucking up to anyone.

So without further adieu, let’s get it going:

Today we start with some truly Forgotten Flix faves:

Bruce Campbell to Rodney Dangerfield

Why these guys?  Because, really, has either one ever gotten the respect they deserve?

Email those entries to or post below if you just want to play along and not join this free contest.

The leaderboard will be divulged in next week’s post — so you have until next Thursday to submit.

Happy Linking.

Rodney Dangerfield

Dave Umbricht loves his family, movies and the NBA (in that order). His unexplainable, genetic attraction to movies flourished in the early ’80s thanks to Siskel and Ebert. It’s also believed Dave was the only 8-year-old to know of My Dinner with Andre, even though he didn’t see it until he was 28. In the ’90s he wrote three awful screenplays, including next summer’s Cowboys and Aliens (or at least a script with the same title). He still can’t dunk a basketball.

Check out his blog here.

About Dave Umbricht

Dave Umbricht is a self proclaimed "guy who knows a couple of things". However, he has never claimed to know them well. Genetically predisposed to love movies, at age ten he felt really cool being the only fourth grader who knew of the film "My Dinner with Andre", thanks to Siskel & Ebert. For the next twenty years he pretended to have seen the movie until he finally watched it at age 28 and understood what all the fuss was about. He attempted to watch all of the films on Ebert's Great Movies list by age 40. He failed.

    Good luck to all, I can’t quite do it myself. I’m terrible at these.

      Well, I did it. This proves everything I learned in inspirational 80s rock montage songs, that if I put myself to the test I do have the power to succeed.

    Congrats Will! Of course, I assume since you learned from 80s montages that you were able to answer in about the time it takes for a truncated Survivor tune to play out. 🙂
