Once again, the MOTM feature proves that all good things come to those who wait. Of course, your definition of “good things” may differ from someone else’s. Namely, Dan Heaton’s, whose championing of Timecop has now finally paid off with its selection as the MOTM, beating out Joel’s selection of Runaway Train. (Apparently, Joel is persona non grata when it comes to MOTM film selections, though I suspect he, too, will have his day in the sun sooner rather than later. For now, Dan won a decisive victory over Joel, leading us all into some serious Van Dammage!
So, here’s what goes down from here:
* The first thing you need to know is that January 19th is the big day. You have just over 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 19th (you can send a link prior if you have the capability to do so).
* On January 12th, we’ll be recording our MOTM-themed episode of the LAMBcast, where we’ll dissect and discuss Timecop. If you’d like to get in on it, there is the NEW Wild Card spot on the show, delivered via first-come, first-served. The show’s recording time is 9am Pacific, so if you’d like in, speak up! Also, for anyone else, 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 19th, 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.
* Public Transportation Snob will be ineligible to become a Champion for the next three months. Man, I Love Films has two more months of ineligibility remaining, and Two Dude Review has one. The Cinematic Katzenjammer becomes eligible again with the next poll.
