The Next Movie of the Month Will Be….

by Dylan · June 19, 2011 · MOTM · 5 Comments

The poll results are in – thank you to the 78 voters (a new high again!) who have made The Third Man the next MOTM (we’re gonna have a string of movies that start with “The Thi-” going here, if we’re lucky). Here’s what needs to go down from here:

* The first thing you need to know is that July 16th is the big day.

* You have four weeks to watch the flick if you haven’t already, and to write up something, then send me the link ( to either what you write or something previously written. If you’re planning on doing the former, please hold the post in draft until the 16th (you can send a link prior if you have the capability to do so).

* On July 9th, we’ll be recording our MOTM-themed episode of the LAMBcast, where we’ll dissect and discuss The Third Man. If you’d like to get in on it, there are still a couple spots open – just head over to the LAMB Forums to claim one.

* On the 16th, the LAMBcast will be posted, as well as all of the links to anything written. In addition, I’ll include a poll to decide what the next MOTM flick will be. If you have suggestions, leave them in the comments here (though I imagine I’ll include most of the films from this last poll that received a good percentage of the votes). That poll will run for a week, and then there’ll be three weeks until the next event, and so on.

Here are the final results of the poll:

* The Third Man, Clerks, Wild at Heart, and Five Easy Pieces will be removed from the next poll, leaving four spots for new suggestions.

    My ploy to get people to watch old movies has succeeded!

    Also, I’m not sure The Brown Bunny would be the best pick for a movie of the month, from what I’ve heard about the film.

  5. All I can say is it’s about damn time. I have voted for this one in practically every single one of these so I’m pleased that it’s getting the nod.
