Well...I guess that it's no secret that I'll be posting the rest of the winners today...I just can't wait for Friday!
Alas...this was a difficult job...I didn't enjoy having to pick just three winning entries from so many great ones! But...decisions had to be made...
So...without further ado...the Second Place Winner of the Roger Corman Blogathon is...
Congratulations, Rachel! Do a victory lap!
I feel that it is necessary to explain again why I chose the winner that I did. The simple reason is that her entry on "The Haunted Palace" doesn't really belong in a blogathon...it belongs in a film theory book. Probably more than any other entry did Rachel examine how the film worked, what made it tick, and, of course...how it was made. Reading it was like being given a lesson in film criticism...a lesson that was simultaneously captivating and thrilling to read. Also, she gets major points for not being afraid to point out what she DIDN'T like about the film instead of just focusing on its strengths. For writing one of the entries that most deserves to be published in film journals, Rachel more than deserves her award, accolades, praise, and, of course...her site banner.
