We had ourselves another two-horse race in the last MOTM poll, and it came down to two four-word-titled, underrated (?) modern films – White Men Can’t Jump and Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. In the end, the Robert Downey, Jr./Val Kilmer vehicle won out (championed by Justin Gott of Man, I Love Films), taking 26.3% of the 95 votes. As such, Justin 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 October 14th is the big day. You have just about two-and-a-half 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 14th (you can send a link prior if you have the capability to do so).
* On October 7th, we’ll be recording our MOTM-themed episode of the LAMBcast, where we’ll dissect and discuss Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. 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 14th, 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:
* Man, I Love Films will be ineligible to become a Champion for the next three months. 100 Years of Movies has two more months of ineligibility remaining, and 3 Guys 1 Movie has one. Grind My Reels becomes eligible again with the next poll.
