Well...it was a difficult choice...but it's time to reveal the Grand Prize Winner of the Roger Corman Blogathon.
The winner is....
What can I possibly say about this incredible post? Seriously...what can I say? I'm lost for words!
Ivan's review was absolutely insane. He was the first blogger to post their article during the blogathon. Even though his was the very first article that I read...I knew that he was going to be winning something. His review had everything: insightful analysis of the film, fascinating tales of the film's production, and incredible writing. This may sound offensive, but I mean it with all of the love and respect in the world: reading his review was like watching a B-movie. It was loud, brash, funny, in-your-face, exciting, and thought-provoking. One of the very first things that struck me while I was reading it was the insane attention to detail that he displayed. There was barely a scene or line that wasn't explored or parsed during his review. His blog truly went above and beyond the call of duty.
Congratulations, Ivan! You win the prize, the banner, and $60!
On a side note...stay tuned tonight for my closing thoughts on the blogathon.
