Photo Contest #1: Finalists

Category: Uncategorized @ 11:14 pm

We’ve moved into a new world now that we’ve started hosting photo contests. Despite my love for our writing-based contests, the web is really made for photos. Plus, it’s fun to get to see our users. We’ve worked some bugs out and are ready to go for future photo-based competitions.

There won’t be any special mentions for this week, so let’s go straight to your five finalists. The five most creative costumes were Snoconegrl’s Bob Ross, amueth’s Rorschach (from The Watchmen), Lalaith’s flying purple people eater, Jakutz‘ high tide, and Mach3‘s Alex Trebek.

The polls will be open until 5pm EST on Thursday. Remember, there’s a sweet $50 Amazon.com gift certificate riding on this as well as the title: winner of the first MM photo contest.

    I love that Rorschach costume so much. The scarf is the only thing I might change about the outfit. The rest (and especially the mask) is fantastic.

    Watchman.

    I’ve never heard of The Watchmen. My roommate said it’s a comic and they made a movie recently. Is it a must-see?

    The comic is a classic–one of those works that is so innovative that it creates more dignity and power and possibilities for its medium. The movie is not out yet. Trailer here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E4blSrZvPhU

    Note that the writer of the comic does not approve of the movie and that Hollywood tends to butcher his work. Alan Moore wrote the comics “From Hell”, adapted to a movie I haven’t seen, and “League of Extraordinary Gentlemen”, adapted into one of the worst movies of its decade, and “V for Vendetta” adapted into a decent blockbuster. “Watchmen” is his masterwork (and considered the best graphic novel of all time by more people than would call “Citizen Kane” the greatest film), and it deserves to be a high-end miniseries for its breadth instead of a movie that could never hope to hold all of its goodness without losing the mainstream audience or being longer than 4 or 5 hours. I’m not holding my breath for the film being as good as the comic (one never should–they’re separate media anyway) and I’m a little upset the guy who directed “300″ gets to direct it, but I must say the trailer still excites me at some level.
