Lambscores: A Silent Singing Passenger Assassin Calls

by Jay Cluitt · January 21, 2017 · Featured, LAMBscores · 1 Comment

There’s so many films to discuss this week! As usual, a bus-load of movies got released for that post-Christmas break, and that bus seems to have been driven by Paterson, which has become another of 2016’s highest rated films. Also in the discussion today are the likes of Silence, A Monster Calls, Passengers, Assassin’s Creed and Sing, as well as a bunch of smaller films of varying degrees of quality. So, without further ado, here’s what the LAMB community had to say about them all:
