LAMBScores: Resurrecting a Pet with a Particular Set of Skills

by Nick Powell · October 28, 2012 · LAMBscores · No Comments

Here’s another edition of the LAMBScores, just in time for Halloween. Although Frankenweenie is the only film that’s really related to the holiday, I’m sure you can find something to be scared about when it comes to Taken 2. Throw in some teenage angst with The Perks of Being a Wallflower and America’s favorite ingredient, Butter, and you have this week’s LAMBScores. As always, feel free to post your own scores in the LAMBScores Forum, but please, read the rules beforehand.

LAMB Bites:
Movie Reviews by Tom Clift: “While the film contains all of Burton’s recognizable – one could say tired – auteurist trademarks, it also boasts a sense of inventiveness and sincerity that makes it his most enjoyable production in quite a considerable while.”
Citizen Charlie: “The story is a bit forgettable but the wink-wink praise for its horror ancestors makes the movie worth the trip.”
Kirkham A Movie A Day: “If you love a dog, you should love this.”

Go, See, Talk!: “It becomes a fascinating character arc triumphing over isolationism and personal demons with with endearing characters and an awesome 80′s soundtrack”
