Plugs 4/1

by Dylan · April 1, 2009 · Plugs · 2 Comments

Got a Plug? Head on over to the LAMB Forums and post it. I’m looking for special events – contests, giveaways, blog-a-thons – something you don’t normally do, but you’re doing it now and want need the world to know. Here’s the latest batch:

Film for the Soul needs ewe to chronicle a decade of film.

In 8 months plus it will be 2010 and the 00’s (the naughties) will be behind us leaving in its wake 10 years of cinema.

I want to take a look at cinema from 2000 – 2009, each month focusing on a different year, obviously starting with the year 2000 and I’m looking for submissions; reviews, opinions, awards, news, anything and everything film related for each corresponding year.

I believe that not only are we looking at 10 years of cinema but also the rise of the ‘casual critic’, the blogsphere has given voice to thousands of on-line reviewers and I’m looking for as many of those differing voices as possible.

So if ewe have a review; one ewe may have already posted on your blog many years ago, or are interested in writing a new one for a film in 2000 then please get in contact. For example I’m especially interested in any review, or articles, on the following films

Gladiator (Ridley Scott)
O’ Brother Where Art Thou (Joel/Ethan Coen)
House of Mirth (Terrence Davies)
Dancer in the Dark (Lars Von Trier)
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (Ang Lee)
Requiem for a Dream (Darren Aronosky)
Ju-on (Takashi Shimizu)
Amores Perros (Alejandro Gonzalez Inarrittu)
Almost Famous (Cameron Crowe)
Yi Yi: A One and a Two (Edward Yang)
X-Men (Bryan Singer)
Billy Elliot (Stephen Daldry)
Traffic (Steven Soderbergh)
Girlfight (Karyn Kusama)
Nine Queens (Fabian Bielinsky)
Best in Show (Christopher Guest)

These are just ideas, if ewe have a hidden gem, for example one reviewer is covering a Japanese Anime I’ve never heard of, then don’t hesitate to get in contact.

Over the coming months I hope to build a resource of film in the 00’s, culminating with an ultimate list of the naughties greatest films at the end of the year.

Hopefully you’ll take part.


Hey there fellow LAMBs. I’ve declared next week (3/29 to 4/4) Norma Shearer week on my blog Out of the Past ~ A Classic Film Blog. TCM is showing a lot of her films in the next upcoming months and with the new WB Archive films, 4 of her films are now available on made-to-order DVDs.

Just want to get people interested in my absolute top favorite Actress!

This is for an upcoming blogathon of sorts that I did last year.

I declared April “30 Days of Horror” where every day in April I watched at least one horror movie. Towards the end, things didn’t go so well cause of family stuff, so hopefully this year things will go off without a hitch.

This time though, I’m asking for help. I’m writing out all the films I wanna see in that month but if anyone is willing to contribute by watching and writing a horror film on your own and I’ll do a linky thing. How I’ll do that is if ewe wanna participate, let me know what film ewe want to cover and I’ll let ewe know if I did it already or if I’m gonna do it.

Here’s the link to last years films:

I have sort of a theme going on this time, since this is the “sequel” to the first event. Betcha never guess what the theme might be.


Hi LAMB Members,

For those of ewe who(m) are interested….
My blog is “undergoing” a “format” change.
Starting April 1st….No! This Isn’t An April Fools Joke!

Oh!…She is going to write her own movie reviews? No!….I still don’t like to write, …. but what about the contests?….

*No worries,* movie contest(s) will still be offered on my blog.
And where are all these changes taking place?
