The next MOTM will be…

I’m here to tell you that persistence does indeed pay off.

On its sixth time in the MOTM poll, the film chosen by Lord of the Films, Children of Men, has finally won!  What started as a three-horse race between it, Primer (note to Invasion of the B Movies, chooser of Primer, see the first sentence of this post), and the original Dawn of the Dead eventually turned into a blowout, with the Clive Owen-starring film eventually taking more than twice as many votes (and 39% overall) of its next-closest competitor.   As such, Ryan Fernand of Lord of the Films 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 December 16th is the big day. You have just under four 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 11th (you can send a link prior if you have the capability to do so).

* On December 9th, we’ll be recording our MOTM-themed episode of the LAMBcast, where we’ll dissect and discuss Licence to Kill. 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 16th, 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:

*  Lord of the Films will be ineligible to become a Champion for the next three months.  Public Transportation Snob has two more months of ineligibility remaining, and Man, I Love Films has one. 100 Years of Movies becomes eligible again with the next poll.

    Congrats Ryan, thats well deserved considering how long you have been championing it.

    When it comes to the closed polling system I think its quite neat. It might not get as frantic as with the old two-horse race system. But to be honest this might be the most fail proof system we have have had so far due to technical under the hood stuff. I’ll leave the decision on how the poll is run to Dylan but I think its worth going blind for a while.

    Great! I voted for Children of Men and already watched it a while back. I remember different parts of the movie but have little interest in watching it again, just to refresh my memory of the whole thing. Do we have to write reviews or can we write something else in reference to the film?
