Our Acronym is Better Than Theirs – Picking the LAMB’s Top 10 9 Chick Flicks

Do you even remember this one? It sorta got lost in the shuffle when Dylan stepped down and I took over back in October. Actually, it sorta got lost in the shuffle during voting, because we had a record low of 5 voters chime in. I was going to just skip over the results, but that wouldn’t be fair to the five LAMBs who took time to make their lists and vote.

So here are the LAMB’s Top 10 9 Chick Flicks (1st place votes in parentheses):

7. Gentlemen Prefer Blondes-9 points from 1 vote (0)
7. Show Me Love-9 points from 1 vote (0)
7. High Fidelity-9 points from 1 vote (0)

6. Gone with the Wind-10 points from 1 vote (1)

4. The Women (1939)-17 points from 2 votes (1)
4. The Devil Wears Prada-17 points from 3 votes (0)

2. The Princess Bride-18 points from 3 votes (1)
2. Love Actually-18 points from 2 votes (1)

1. 500 Days of Summer-19 points from 2 votes (1)

Dylan normally posted all the votes separately for the Top 10 lists, but with only five, they’ll do just fine here  (listed picks 1 to 10, top to bottom):

500 Days of Summer
High Fidelity
Love Actually
The Princess Bride

Big thanks to our five voters!

And now we’re going to tell the world what we really thought of film in 2010. It’s time for our 4th Annual LIONs for LAMBs Awards. I want to know what your best and worst films of the year were, plus some fun extras, like actor, actress, director, poster and loads more. Out of twelve categories, there is only one change from last year’s awards.

The poll is now up and all LAMBs will be able to vote through February 10th. The results will begin on February 16th, with one category posted every day, and end with the Top 10 on February 27th, the day of the 87th Academy Awards.

Let’s get more than 5 voters this time (don’t make me beg). Go vote!

    Sorry – I missed when this was posted. Having only 5 left out some important ones – I’ll be sure to vote next time.

  2. Robert says:

    Ah, I remember doing this! I didn’t consider (500) Days of Summer a chick flick otherwise it so would have made my list. Fun to see what other people wrote though! 🙂

  3. Clarabela says:

    How in the world did I miss this one. Chick Flicks are my specialty.

  4. Film Gurl says:

    Awesome! It will be interesting to see the results, vote submitted! 🙂

    Clarabela-You didn’t miss this one. Your votes are the last set, are they not?

    High Fidelity is a chick flick? Really? I call shenanigans. High Fidelity is TOTALLY a dude flick even if nothing blows up.
