The MOTM for February 2013 will be…

by Dylan · January 22, 2013 · Blogathons, Featured, Features, MOTM · 10 Comments

It started off as a tight race between all five films, but it didn’t take long for two to break from the pack.  In the end, the pick from Brian Roan of Dear Film, 1961’s Last Year at Marienbad,  took home the prize (see poll results below). As such, Brian becomes the latest Champion and has won a chair in the LAMBcast in which we’ll discuss the film, and the hosting rights to the MOTM segment (more below).

So, here’s what goes down from here:

* The first thing you need to know is that February 10th is the big day. You have just under three weeks to watch the flick, write up something, then send me the link (dylan at; posting to the LAMB’s Twitter account or to mine does not suffice) 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 13th (you can send a link prior if you have the capability to do so).

* On February 3rd, we’ll be recording our MOTM-themed episode of the LAMBcast, where we’ll dissect and discuss Last Year at Marienbad. If you’d like to get in on it…sorry, that show is full. But keep an eye out at the LAMB Forums to for the future shows schedule, as people often have to bail before the day arrives.


* On the 10th, 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 (the call for new Champions will be coming at some point before then). 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 (click to enlarge):

* Dear Film will be ineligible to become a Champion for the next three months.  Journeys in Classic Film has two more months of ineligibility remaining, and Lord of the Films has one. Public Transportation Snob becomes eligible again with the next poll.

    I can’t say I championed for my film that well… Glad to see I came in a close 2nd though! Power to Modern Times and Chaplin!

    I was really hoping for Tombstone. One of my favorite films.

  3. Dan Heaton says:

    This is going to be a fun conversation. I’m looking forward to checking out Marienbad again and am curious what the others will think about it. Congrats Brian!

    I’d almost like to be on this podcast, except that would mean I’d have to watch this piece of crap again.

    One of my top 100 films of all time!

    This is going to be another episode of Brian Roan versus the World!
    I’ll be cheering for him from my headphones.
