The next Movie of the Month will be…

The poll results are in – thank you to the 81 voters who took part. The next MOTM will be Moon, which destroyed the competition by taking in 27.2% of the votes. Here’s what goes down from here:

* The first thing you need to know is that November 12th is the big day. You have just under three weeks to watch the flick (if you haven’t already) and to write up something, then send me the link (dylan at 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 12th (you can send a link prior if you have the capability to do so).

* On November 5th, we’ll be recording our MOTM-themed episode of the LAMBcast, where we’ll dissect and discuss Moon. If you’d like to get in on it, there’s still an open spot (and maybe more, as some of the participants are tentative at this point – keep an eye out at the LAMB Forums to for the future shows schedule.

* On the 12th, 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 I have a bunch of suggested films, so no more needed at this point. I typically drop off the films that receive the lowest percentage of votes. That poll will run for a week, and then there’ll be 3-4 weeks until the next event, and so on.

Here are the final results of the poll:

* Moon, Lethal Weapon, Once Upon a Time in the West, and The Great Escape will be removed from the next poll, to be filled by your previous suggestions.

    Man, it’s a sad thing to see Once Upon A Time in the West not get enough votes to stay in the running for future editions of MOTM.

    I hear ya, but don’t fret too much. I was thinking that perhaps every few months, I might swap out the default list and populate the poll of films with nothing but dropped-out movies. A loser’s bracket, if you will. I know that kind of goes against the whole purpose of dropping them out in the first place, but it just kinda seems like fun to give some of them a second chance.

    Hm… I just wrote an enthusiastic review about this one. The only problem is that I’m not yet a LAMB member. I’m stalking you though!

    I think I’m just about to pass the 3 months requisit… So I’ll send my application as soon as possible. It remains to see whether it will be considered before this movie comes up. Anyway – I’ll send my link to Dylan and see what happens.

    Dylan: Thats a great idea with a loser round-up round! Not to often though.

    Jessica: If I understand the Lamb regulations, pending lambs are allowed in the blogathons and its just a matter of time before you’re a lamb. Damn if a few more join the next couple of months Swedish will be the second lamb language. =)
