    The poll results are in – thank you to the 54 voters who have made The Long Kiss Goodnight the next MOTM. Here’s what needs to go down from here:

    * The first thing you need to know is that August 20th is the big day.

    * You have just about four weeks to watch the flick if you haven’t already, and to write up something, then send me the link (dylan at manilovefilms.com) to either what you write or something...

    Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #76: The Third Man

    Veteran LAMBcaster James was pushing hard for The Third Man to be the next MOTM for a few months now, and he finally got his way. The 1949 drama starring Joseph Cotten and Orson Welles is regularly included on lists of the best noir films and was voted in 1999 as the best British film of the 20th century by the BFI.

    For those unfamiliar with it, the plot synopsis from IMDb:

    “An out of work pulp fiction novelist, Holly...

    The Next Movie of the Month Will Be….


    The poll results are in – thank you to the 78 voters (a new high again!) who have made The Third Man the next MOTM (we’re gonna have a string of movies that start with “The Thi-” going here, if we’re lucky). Here’s what needs to go down from here:

    * The first thing you need to know is that July 16th is the big day.

  • Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #71: The Thing

    Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #71: The Thing

    It seemed inevitable that The Thing would finally become the MOTM, after a couple progressively better showings in the polls (just as it seems inevitable that The Third Man will win one of these months).

Interestingly enough, it wasn’t deemed a classic (and wasn’t commercially successful, either) upon its release, where it barely earned its budget back and arrived...
