The MOTM for May 2014 will be…

The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon! And boy was it a nail-biter this time around!

LAMBMOTM18

It was pretty close for four of the five films for almost the entire run (sadly my own All About Eve never really got off the starting block), but in the last few hours there was a last ditch attempt for both Rosemary’s Baby and Shame, with Shame eventually taking the crown by one solitary vote.

Congratulations go to Alex Withrow of And So It Begins, who by winning the poll has also gained himself a place on the upcoming Lambcast and hosting duties for the feature discussion, if he wants them. There is a Wild Card slot available to anyone that wants it – first come first served. Either leave a comment, drop me an e-mail, put something in the forums or whatever. The show’s recording date is Sunday 11th May, 9am Pacific/5pm GMT.

As always, when that Lambcast is posted, any reviews the rest of the LAMB wishes to write about the film will be posted too. Please send in any submissions – new or old – to jaycluitt(at)hotmail.com by 16th May. That day will also see the next poll go up, so if you would like to champion a film for June’s MOTM, be sure to get in touch as well.

Here are the results of this month’s poll: May 2014 MOTM

And So It Begins will be ineligible to become a Champion for the next three months. Forgotten Films has two more months of ineligibility remaining, and Simplistic Reviews has one. Exploding Helicopter becomes eligible again with the next poll.

    Damn, I thought I’d have done better than that with Grosse Point Blank. That was a great lineup of films though. All About Eve is an old favourite of mine too. I wasn’t a huge fan of Warrior (sports movies rarely do it for me), but it’s still pretty decent. Shame is quite divisive so it should be an interesting episode of the Podcast. Can’t wait to listen!

      This was one of those rare occasions where I genuinely didn’t mind who won, as I’ve got them all on DVD, haven’t seen three of them and need to review four of them for lists. I think Grosse Point Blank could do well another time David, so be sure to champion it again if you like!

    Can I pleeeeease be on the Shame podcast! I absolutely adore that movie (and I should be available then as well)

    • jaycluitt says:

      You of course can be on the show Stevee, it’ll be great to have you back on. Is the time (I think 4am Monday morning, your time) OK for you? I can check with the others to see if we can move the time around if you like.

      • Stevee says:

        Haha, it is a bit early (if you could push it back a couple of hours back so it’s at 6am that would be better). If you can’t though, that’s fine, I should be able to wake up for that!
