  1. I think someone needs to take a look at the Lambscores, there are lots of films that haven’t been published yet

    • Shane Slater says:

      There will inevitably be a lot of films that aren’t published, based on the guidelines of the LAMBScores. You won’t see every film on the site because:

      (a) Only films with at least 5 reviews within 3 weeks of release get published. This is an effort to try to somewhat reflect a consensus of the LAMB.

      (b) The 3-week time frame is due to the desire to maintain relevancy of the scores. We want the scores to be about the latest films in theaters.

      There is a thread in the forums about the rules here: http://thelambforums.proboards.com/thread/1214/read-before-posting-lambscores-rules

    • Joel says:

      Shane is right. However, the problem is mainly that most lamb members don’t post their reviews in the forums. If say 90% of our active members would I doubt very many films would be left out. So I suggest recommending sites you visit that are LAMB members to post their scores.

  2. Mettel Ray mettelray says:

    Oh man, I’ve seen both 42 and TPBTP but I haven’t written the reviews yet.. I kind of wished I made it to the time frame of the scores but no such luck…

  3. 42 better LAMB score than The Place Beyond the Pines = Mind Blown
