I'll probably wait until next year's challenge to give them a spin. I'll let you know then.

Did anybody manage to see a movie at an actual drive-in theater this year?

Re: Third Annual Drive-In/Exploitation/B-Movie Challenge March 31-April 30 2012

Yeah, I feel bad, too. Last year I went to an unrelated convention halfway through that completely sapped my focus so that I messed up the counting and prize thing. I wanted to run it plain jane this year to make sure it got completed. We can make it more ambitious again next year.

As I was typing this, I got a last second sponsor. So we will have some cool prizes after all. Thanks to Hamilton Books.

Hamilton Books is *GREAT*! I believe they sponsor every challenge and always provide some really nice prizes. Because of their support of us, I've added them to my "purchase radar". I'd like to say I order regularly but it seems like that every time I get enough stuff together to offset the shipping fee a bit *something* I wanted very badly goes OOS so I put off the order... again... I'm trying to get faster...

I don't know if the rest of you have noticed but Rich also participates in many of these challenges! It looks like we've sucked him in!

*THANKS* Hamilton Books!

Hamilton Books rules! And I know that at least 1 of the 2 dvds I gave away through my blog went to a DVDTalker (it'll be in the mail soon).

Very nice of them to step-up and be a last-second sponsor.

Certainly have! Wish I had gotten in on this one (I think I did last year) as I love me some exploitation/B-movies. I'll be in for sure on the October Horror Challenge...it's an easy excuse to watch all the Hammers again for the umpteenth time.

And the challenges have been awesome for my unwatched pile...sometimes I just need a reason to get me to toss a DVD in the player. Keeps me from watching the old favorites over and over and helps me find some new favorites.

Re: Third Annual Drive-In/Exploitation/B-Movie Challenge March 31-April 30 2012

the challenges really do help my unwatched pile as well. now if I could just raise the numbers a bit to close to 50 that would really help me. backlog is just too much.
