EPIC – Epic Plot and Intense Cinematography
FEAR – Fear Excitement Angst Revenge
I liked the horror ideas, we have so many halloween spoofs but an actual horror film with good characters that is outstanding is missing in my opinion. I know we have good films in a scary obscure mood, but I mean a classic horror film that might even have splatter elements.

Agreed, I don’t think it’d be a good idea to have a genre-themed contest as all previous ones have been based on theme. A common theme results in an interesting variety of films, instead of, say, ten sci-fi movies.

I liked the acronym thing, however I do not think a concept should be abandoned simply because it doesn’t fit with any cute, pronounceable acronyms. btw, I like ICE and ABC. MoM isn’t bad either, but I don’t think the acronym fits.
As for my suggestions, it is my opinion that not only most, but nearly all brickfilms are made purely to entertain. I think it might be an interesting concept to base a contest around the premise that films should have a serious message of some sort; this can be almost anything from a cute moral lesson (a la some of the Words of Wisdom contest entries) to a political message and even if the subject is serious the film itself certainly would not have to be. Some ideas:
CAUSE – Communicating A Uniquely Satirical Examination: This is a somewhat lame attempt at filling out the acronym, but there aren’t many satirical brickfilms, likely because good satire is difficult to write. I think a satire-themed contest could be interesting.
SAM – Sharing A Message: See above.

i liked the RRR idea…. that could be good, some film about like overthrowing a communist government or like George Orwells 1984. I think we have to do something with a serious theme. It is much more of a challenge to do a brickfilm like that. You need to have great cinematography and you have tp be able to show emotions through little plastic people. cognizance was a great serious brickfilm.
How about PAD? Passion, Anger, Determination? haha not the best but something along those lines
