Six Degrees Movie Connection: Training Camp

by Dave Umbricht

Two weeks until tourney time – and right now Mags appears to be the frontrunner.  Why?  because she has been the only one brave enought to enter this death match.  Will you let her take the prize without any competition?  Are you afraid that she may use the stars of Love Actually in a way that no human could ever conceive possible?

Email me at to enter now.

But before we get there, let’s play a game.  In honor of all of your hard training, take us from Mr. Miyagi to whatever they named Mr. Miyagi in the Karate Kid remake.  Pat Morita to Jackie Chan.

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.

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.
