    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.

    * You have four weeks to watch the flick if you haven’t already,...

  • 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). Good thing, too (no pun intended), as it’s a hell of a film. 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...

  • Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #68: Oldboy

    Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #68: Oldboy

    The voters in our last MOTM poll overwhelmingly selected Oldboy as this month’s film, and it’s not hard to see why. Chan-wook Park’s genre-spanning 2003 film shockingly was not an instant classic, but has become more than a cult icon in the eight years since its release, climbing the IMDb Top 250 (it currently sits at #97) and, more importantly, becoming more and more known as one of the quintessential Asian films of the new...

    MOTM Reminder/Update


    I posted this on Facebook, but wanted to put the note up here as well: due to scheduling conflicts, the MOTM blog-a-thon (and the posting of the MOTM-themed LAMBcast) will be happening on Monday rather than today. The good news – this gives you more time to get your posts/reviews of Oldboy in!

    Send all links to blogcabins@yahoo.com. Thanks!
