    The Movie of the Month for April 2022 is…

This oversight has been noted and we’re here today to rectify it, right this very instant. Ten franchises (or almost-franchises) were submitted,...

    The Movie of the Month for March 2022 is…

    The vote has been cast and the results are in for March’s Movie of the Month! Five very different films were nominated, there can be only one winner and, given that it’s Oscar season, it seems only fitting that March’s winner is also a Best Picture nominee. That’s right, for March 2022 we’ll be talking about… The Conversation!

    The Movie of the Month for December 2021 is…

    It’s the holiday season! That means December’s Movie of the Month is, as usual. holiday-themed and, as usual, the winning holiday-themed film is only tangentially related to the holiday season (hello Die Hard, Die Hard 2, Gremlins, Batman Returns and Meet Me in St Louis). This time around the film in question might be vying with Batman...

    It’s October! Horror month! And with it comes the horror-special Movie of the Month. We made a special exception this month as Lisa couldn’t make it to her own previously winning show, which worked out in her favour because she’s won again! Hopefully she can make it this time as she’ll be hosting the discussion on this month’s winner… Cube!

    Congratulations go once again to Lisa...

    The Movie of the Month for July 2021 is…

    July was a bumper month for MOTM votes, with several of the potential champions doing a whole heap of campaigning for their particular film to be crowned the next winner. There were five options, and despite one being a timely action behemoth and another getting a lot of support online, it was Vern’s sheer, dogged onslaught of campaigning that led him to victory with almost half the total votes. The Movie of the Month for July 2021...
