My Fellow LAMBs,
It’s summertime, which means you should be doing one of three things: Swimming, enjoying the outdoors, or watching and reviewing movies for the latest summer-long blogathon over at John Likes Movies.
Last summer’s Criterion Collection blogathon was a great success. Thanks to everyone who participated. The scope of this year’s annual blogathon has narrowed considerably, but should be no less enjoyable for you hardcore cinephiles.
“Are You 2012’s Cannes Connosseiur?” (http://john-likes-movies.blogspot.com/2012/05/are-you-2012s-cannes-connoisseur.html
) is a contest to determine just that—Who is the man or woman best acquainted with the directors who showed films at the crown jewel of all festivals. I’ve identified 50 films from those directors, and assigned each a point value. Submit reviews of these films, and you’ll earn points. The person with the most at the end of the summer wins a DVD or Blu-Ray of their choice. I’ll also be awarding the same prize to another blogger at random. For every five points you accumulate, you’ll earn an entry into the random drawing.
John, Who Likes Movies
Got a Press Release, something to Plug, or a Screener available for review (or some combination of the three)? Ok, don’t get all crazy about it. Just click here and give me the details (what, when, where, and a link, for starters) – I’ll handle the rest.
