LAMBScores: A Little Fish And A Big Ocean

by Jay Cluitt · July 9, 2016 · Featured, LAMBscores · No Comments

The LAMB is an international community, and somewhat annoyingly not all films get released at the same time worldwide (*cough* Snowpiercer *cough*). For the bigger releases there might be just a week’s difference, but here in the UK the films that really hurt me personally are the Pixar releases, which are often released over a month later than a lot of other countries, presumably to match up with the school holidays. As such I’ve still not seen Finding Dory yet, despite it being one of my most anticipated films of the year, and as such I’m going to sit here and seethe at all of you who have. I also haven’t seen Central Intelligence, but I’m more OK with that. Here’s what the LAMB community had to say:

If you want to get involved, here’s how LAMBScores work: Over in the LAMB Forums there’s a sub-board  called LAMBScores. If you’ve written a review or recorded a podcast on a new release, find (or create) the thread there, and leave a link to your review, along with your site name and a score out of 5. Three weeks after the film has received a wide release the reviews will be collated and posted here, as long as there are at least five.
