    The Movie of the Month for May 2020 is…

    It’s time to announce the latest Movie of the Month winner! 10 films were originally submitted, but due to Memories of Murder not being readily available anywhere it was agreed to be withdrawn until it’s easier to watch. That left 9 films to be voted upon, and as always only one could win. So, for May 2020 we’ll be discussing… The Taking of Pelham 123! (The original, of course.)

    Congratulations...
