LAMBCAST #411: M. NIGHT SHYAMALAN-A-THON

by Jay Cluitt · January 31, 2018 · Director Retrospective, Featured, LAMBcast, Podcasts · No Comments

It’s been a while since we’ve done a mammoth director retrospective, covering the entire career of a director with more than a handful of films. Usually we tend to cover more prestige film-makers with mostly consistent outputs, but alas that’s not the case this week.

Jay was joined by Bubbawheat and Todd for a full run through of every film M. Night Shyamalan has ever directed. Why did we do this? It’s unclear. Do we regret it? Without a doubt. But does it make for an entertaining show? Abso-twisting-lutely.

Also on tap – no rants, no raves, no game, but some thoughts on the Oscar nominees. So I guess there were some rants in the end.
