The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!
Last month we proved that anything can win Movie of the Month by, um, celebrating? Southland Tales. Fortunately for February, a bunch of more highly regarded films were submitted, from Buster Keaton to Rodney Dangerfield, via Disney along the way. However, the winner for February is a film that’s been submitted many times before, but has finally taken the gold. That winner is… The Goonies.
Congratulations go to the Lambcast’s co-host Robert Zerbe of To The Escape Hatch, who in championing the victorious movie gets to host the upcoming Lambcast devoted to it. There’s still an open Wild Card slot on that show (recording date Sunday January 11th, 9am Pacific), so if you want to discuss Richard Donner’s search for treasure please leave a message in the comments section.
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 Monday 9th February. That day will also see the next poll go up, so if you would like to champion a film for March’s MOTM, be sure to get in touch as well.
To The Escape Hatch will be ineligible to become a Champion for the next three months. From the Depths of DVD Hell is ineligible for two more months. Exploding Helicopter has one month of ineligibility. Life vs Film becomes eligible next month.
