LAMBScores: Cardigan Sweaters and Demonic Possessions

by Nick Powell · September 21, 2012 · LAMBscores · No Comments
Believe it or not folks, this is the last edition of the LAMBScores of the summer. As fall begins, we will surely have plenty of higher scores, with Oscar bait rolling into theaters as we speak. In the mean time, check out the scores for Lawless, the prohibition era gangster movie, The Possession, another horror movie about a girl getting in touch with her demonic side, and The Queen of Versailles, a little documentary about a family with too much money to spend.  As always, feel free to post your own scores in the LAMBScores Forum, but please, read the rules beforehand.

LAMB Bites:
Two Tickets For…With a slower burn than most movies, the occasional bursts of extreme violence really hit the mark, as did the great performances by Tom Hardy, Guy Pearce and Gary Oldman.”
Brian Vs. Movies: “Hillcoat stretches beyond his comfort zone by adding warm and fuzzy emotions to his typical brutality, but focusing on Shia’s character was the film’s big mistake.”
Anti-Film School: “It may be brewed from a familiar recipe, but it has enough burn going down and a unique lingering buzz to have ewe reaching for a second shot and maybe even a third.”
The Movie Review Warehouse“A terrific adaptation carries over the novel’s intrigue and charming character dynamics with a new level of clarity.”
The Movie Waffler: “This movie has all the depth of a Dukes of Hazzard episode.”
