It was one of the lower voted-upon MOTM polls we’ve had in a while, but it was so less tense. Dead Alive was pretty much staked out to a two-vote lead over The Incredibles from the start, and that’s exactly how it ended. Every time I looked at the results, that’s what it showed me. Weird. In the end, the Peter Jackson grossout took the vote, giving French Toast Sunday the win. As such, FTS 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 June 16th is the big day. You have just under three weeks to watch the flick, write up something, then send me the link (dylan at manilovefilms.com; you may also post to the LAMBcast’s Twitter account) 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 16th (you can send a link prior if you have the capability to do so).
* On June 9th, we’ll be recording our MOTM-themed episode of the LAMBcast, where we’ll dissect and discuss Dead Alive. 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 (click to enlarge):
* French Toast Sunday will be ineligible to become a Champion for the next three months. The Vern’s Video Vortex has two more months of ineligibility remaining, and The Cinematic Katzenjammer has one. Man, I Love Films becomes eligible again with the next poll.
