LAMBCAST #421: INDIANA JONES FRANCHISE MOTM

by Jay Cluitt · April 13, 2018 · Featured, LAMBcast, MOTM, MOTM Champions, Podcasts · No Comments

Our Spielberg coverage concludes this week with a very well-timed movie of the month win for the Indiana Jones franchise, a collection of four films varying from some of the greatest ever made to at least one we’d have preferred not to discuss, but dammit we did anyway.

Jay was joined by the franchise’s champion, Jeanette Ward, along with Todd Liebenow, Richard Kirkham and Getter Trumsi to dig into and uncover the many and various hidden treasures these films contain, doing our best to avoid the snakes, bugs, rats, traps, giant boulders and Shia LaBeoufs along the way.
