Holding out for a Hero Champion

by Dylan · March 10, 2012 · MOTM, MOTM Champions · 4 Comments

Do you have what it takes to be a Movie of the Month Champion?

Actually, that was somewhat rhetorical, as it doesn’t really take all that much.  Anyway, the call is officially out for those interested in championing a film for the next MOTM/LAMBcast.

Here are the finer details:

* If your championed film wins, you get to not only appear on that month’s LAMBcast, but to ‘host’ the MOTM segment – explain why you chose the film, what you might like (or dislike) about it, guide the discussion, etc.

* To prevent highly influential LAMBs from dominating the feature every month, we’re putting a small rule in place: the Champion with the winning film won’t be eligible to participate in the Champions event for the following three months. We want you to participate but not dominate.

* If you would like to volunteer, send an email to dylan at manilovefilms.com by Saturday, March 17th with your name, site name and film selection.  Volunteers from last month will be welcome, but I will (barring something unforeseen) be going with the first 10 people to hit me up.  The only person not eligible this month is Fogs of Fogs’ Movie Reviews, as he was the Champ last month with Blade Runner.  The next MOTM LAMBcast is scheduled to record on April 7th at 3:30pm Pacific time, so you must be able to make that show.  (Films previously chosen as MOTM or those that have appeared on the polls and failed to earn 5% of the votes will be ineligible – I’ll let you know if you have chosen one of these films.)

Sound good? Let me know of any questions, comments, etc.

    I think you should ditch the 5% rule on this new format. Who knows maybe I feel like campaigning the Cube and doing so in a lot bigger fashion than Nick did etc.

  2. “The only person not eligible this month is Fogs of Fogs’ Movie Reviews,”

    That is bullshit man.

    Total BS. I dont know who makes these rules up.
