I don’t know what to tell you, but this contest was over before it started. Not sure what Justin of Man, I Love Films used to bribe people, but it worked (and he assured me that his campaigning was all “legit”). Identity destroyed the field from about two hours into the polling all the way through the end, winning with over 40% of the vote. As such, Justin 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 March 17th is the big day. You have just under four weeks to watch the flick, write up something, then send me the link (dylan at manilovefilms.com; 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 March 10th, we’ll be recording our MOTM-themed episode of the LAMBcast, where we’ll dissect and discuss Identity. 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):
* Man, I Love Films will be ineligible to become a Champion for the next three months. Dear Film has two more months of ineligibility remaining, and Journeys in Classic Film has one. Lord of the Films becomes eligible again with the next poll.
