LAMBSCORES: The Rest of 2019

by Jay Cluitt · February 6, 2020 · LAMBscores · No Comments

Where are the Lambscores for 2020? Where are they? WHERE?!?! Yeah, I know, they’re coming, but we can’t move onto the current year until we finish off the last one, which means it’s time for the annual round up of all the “smaller” films that didn’t accrue enough reviews upon their initial release, but have done now. I use the word “smaller” loosely, as this batch includes a Best Picture nominee, a few other Oscar hopefuls, a smattering of animated films, some horror, a big budget disaster movie and a heap of dramas with more limited releases. Basically, there’s something for everyone, so take a peruse at the LAMB community’s thoughts on a whole bunch of 209 movies.

LAMBscores will return next week with: The Grudge, Like a Boss, Underwater, Dolittle, Bad Boys for Life
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.
