Lambscores: The Birth on the Train

by Jay Cluitt · October 29, 2016 · LAMBscores · No Comments

This week we’re looking at two films which both had a great deal of buzz around them early on, be it from the festival circuit or being an adaptation of the latest must-read thriller (personally, I’d say your fine not to read it, I was underwhelmed), but which both ran into stumbling problems when they hit the general public. Here’s what the LAMB community had to say about The Birth Of A Nation and The Girl On The Train:

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.
