The LAMB’s Movie of the Month: Help Support “The Shining”!

Calling all FMR Readers! I need your help!

(Fogs gets up and sounds the bugle, but all that comes out is a weak, dying bleat…)

“Never had one lesson!” 😀

I’ve been lucky enough to score a spot on another Lambcast! The Lambcast is the official podcast of the Large Association of Movie Blogs, which now includes over 1,200 sites as members. The episode I’ll be on is scheduled to record early next month… and the topic will be the movie that wins this month’s “Movie of the Month” poll.

So I’m getting out the vote… I dont want to wind up talking about “Hackers”… c’mon! There’s a movie there I’d like to champion, and I’m hoping you’ll help me support it, so that I can make the most of my guest spot and really get behind the movie in question. It’s Stanley Kubrick’s “The Shining”. In my opinion, it’s one of the greatest horror films of all time, from one of the greatest directors of all time, starring one of the biggest movie stars of all time, in one of his most legendary roles. This is an awesome movie, complete with iconic images, memorable quotes, and one of the greatest villains (anti-heroes? LOL) ever to hit the screen.

Jack Torrance.

I’ve also been hoping to connect with a “Movie of the Month” in order to write up a “Movie That Everyone Should See” column on it. Each month LAMB members who choose to submit articles they’ve written in regards to the MOTM in question, and I just haven’t connected with one in the few months since I’ve been a member. This is a chance to change that in a BIG way.

So help me out! Swing over to the Movie of the Month poll by clicking this link, tell ’em…

Heeeeere’s Johnny!

  1. All right, I’ve pitched in my support. It helps that there’s only two of those films that I’ve seen myself, and The Shining is one of them. As to the other, well, I wouldn’t want you to have to talk about Hackers either.

  2. I want to talk about The Shining (and see it in full, as it’s long been a blind spot for me)…but I’m pulling for Pitch Black this month. We can do The Shining next month. 😀

    • Nooooo. I wont be on next months. So THIS has to be “The Shining” month.

      YOu’ll have the excuse you’ve finally been waiting for. You oughta see it. Its 10x the movie Pitch Black is. Not that Pitch Black’s bad or anything…

      • Hackers has always been a bit of a guilty pleasure for me. I concede all the flaws which many smarter people have pointed out over the years, but it comes on and I’ll probably sit and watch it. Oh, and re: PSYCHO… Crazy=hot. You dont want to live with crazy, but still… 😀

    • Yeah, I guess if Blue Velvet does win it wont be one of the ones I’m bummed to see win. But I’d still rather talk the Shining, 😀

      Thanks for the help man, and yeah… I think the “push” is working. Right now…

  3. Can ya vote more than once?(Like the Republican primaries). Anyway I voted the Kubrick, King kombo. Wanta hear yous on that there internet!

    • You and Aidy should start the “Run Lola Run” party 🙂

      I wouldnt eb so sure about the Shining winning it. Its been on the list for months (I know because I’ve been voting for it) and hasn’t won yet. It has a lead at this moment because a bunch of people from here went over to it. We’ll see how that holds up.

  4. Impressive numbers you are bringing in on the poll. You know that you can embed the entire poll on your blog if you want to? I have done that a couple of times when campaigning for a film.

    • I did NOT know that.

      Once again you prove to be the biggest mensch in bloggerdom by hooking me up with the 411. I’ll keep an eye on the results, buddy and see if that’s a trick I need to pull out of the hat. 😀

      Thanks Joel!!

  5. I don’t get people voting for a movie other than than The Shining. I mean, a movie blogger, a friend even, directs others to an on-line poll, with a SIMPLE REQUEST to vote on something that’s important to him.

    Do people give a SINGLE MOMENT’S THOUGHT about what it means to go vote for another movie instead? Even though the blogger has put their COMPLETE CONFIDENCE in you to vote on The Shining?

    Do you have the SLIGHTEST IDEA what a moral and ethical principle is? DO YOU?

    • 😀

      Oh. I’m watchin’ it… I’m watchin’ it… 😉

      Thanks for your support S, it’s been nice having you around and commenting, and its nice to know that the crew here has my back!! YEAH!!

  6. Can I vote for The Shining even though it’s the only one I saw ?!? This movie scared the h___ out of me because it could have really happened . It’s not some super human villain in some kind of mask/outfit. If you’ve ever dealt with the mentally ill, you know how true it could be!!! Jack nailed this role so perfectly, as always.
