The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!
It seems there’s something about the first Movie of the Month for each year that requires it to be a little off-book. 2014 saw Jean-Claude Van Damme high-kicking his way through time in Timecop, and in 2015 I still can’t explain what the heck was going on with Southland Tales, so it seems fitting that the winner of prize for 2016 will be going to another film that might be something of an unusual choice. It was a close race between three of the contenders, but for January 2016 we will be talking about Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins.
Congratulations go to DJ Valentine of Simplistic Reviews who in winning the poll also gets to host the feature discussion on the upcoming Lambcast devoted to it. If you’re a fan of Remo Williams and want to take part in that show,being recorded on January 10th 2016, then please drop a line in the comments or find the Lambcast on Twitter, @lambcast.
As always, when that Lambcast show is posted, any reviews the rest of the LAMB wishes to write about the film in question will be posted too. Please send in any submissions – new or old – to jaycluitt(at)hotmail.com by Monday 11th January. That day will also see the next poll go up, so if you would like to champion the Movie of the Month for February, get in touch.
Here are the results of this month’s poll:
Simplistic Reviews will be ineligible to champion a MOTM contender for the next three months. Forgotten Films still has two months of ineligibility left. Life vs Film will be ineligible for one more month. Journeys in Classic Film in now eligible again.
