Lambscores: 2018 Hodge-Podge

by Jay Cluitt · November 25, 2018 · Featured, LAMBscores · 2 Comments

So this week’s film was supposed to be Hunter Killer, but given the only review submitted for that came from the Lambcast co-host Richard (find it here), I opted instead to dig through the forums for some of the smaller releases that took a little while longer to accrue the minimum of five submitted scores to be published. I figured this would be a quick job – after all, how many could there be? Evidently quite a few, hence why this post is two days late, sorry about that. Anyway, here’s what the LAMB community had to say about a whole darn bunch of movies from this year:

LAMBscores will return next week with: Bohemian Rhapsody, Nobody’s Fool, The Nutcracker and the Four Realms
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.

  1. I was unable to submit my review for First Reformed, as I wrote it for another outlet, but I gave it a 5 out of 5. My favorite film of the year so far.

  2. Love that you took the time to go back and find out these movies – I’ve just added a few to my watchlist!
