And so, as 2016 leaves the smouldering ruins behind and returns to the ocean from whence it came, I emerge from hibernation to wish you all a very Merry Christmas. Be safe, be happy, be loved and, as Abraham Lincoln once said:
The script’s going really well but I miss you all, and I’m looking forward to getting back on the blog horse in February. Something that a lot of people have been asking me is when I’m going to do another Charity Movie Deathmatch and, much as I’d love to, I’m STILL working through the reviews from the last one and amn’t due to finish those until July. So, obviously, the only way I could do another Deathmatch would be if I was the kind of mouse who had a history of taking on huge projects while stile struggling to finish his existing ones…
LET DEATHMATCH BEGIN!!!!!
The Unshaved Mouse Charity Movie Deathmatch 2017 will kick off on Monday, 30th of January and will run all through February. Just like before 12 movies/TV Shows will be selected and you can vote for whichever one you want by making a charitable donation to one of this year’s two charities, the Dublin Simon Community and the Red Cross/Crescent’s Syria Appeal. We’ll go into more detail on how voting works closer to the time, but for now, I just need you all to nominate as many movies and TV shows as you like in the comments. The choices with the most support will be selected as this year’s contestants.
Who can I nominate?
I’m going to do away with the “animation and comic book movies only” rule. My only rule this year is No Star Wars Movies. It’s not that I don’t love them, it’s just that when it comes to reviewing those things on the internet I feel like frickin’ Sarabi.
However, that only extends to the main canon movies. If you want to nominate some of the more obscure Star Wars ephemera out there I have no objection.
So that’s it. Let’s show 2017 that we mean business.
Merry Christmas and a Very Happy New Year.
