Lambscores: Prehistoric Panther

by Jay Cluitt · March 17, 2018 · Featured, LAMBscores · No Comments

I don’t mean to disrespect the previous few weeks of Lambscores, but I think it’s fair to say that today is where 2018’s films really begin, at least in terms of spectacle. Paddington 2 may still hold the top spot for the year so far (a fact I am in no way annoyed by), but in terms of a cultural milestone and slice of event cinema you can’t really compare anything so far to Black Panther. As such I kind of feel sorry for Early Man, the latest release from Aardman, which has to accept being in the shadow of a much more acclaimed blockbuster. Here are the LAMB community’s thoughts on them both:

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.
