LAMBScores: Resurgence of Uprising Model Shark Corpses

by Jay Cluitt · July 16, 2016 · Featured, LAMBscores · No Comments

Changes to the leader board again this week, with the “Farting Corpse Movie” proving far better than that high concept would have you believe. In fact, this week proves that a giant budget and flood of marketing doesn’t guarantee a great movie, as you could practically plot on a graph this week that the bigger the film, the worse the reviews. Here’s what the LAMB community had to say about the recent major releases:

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.
