    Lambcast #605  No Time to Die

    If you have listened to the podcast any time in the last two years, you will certainly know that “No Time to Die” has been one of the most anxiously awaited films for our podcasting community. In the lead up to the original release, we had prepared and executed a series of Lookback episodes covering the entire franchise. We also had a couple of drafts and there were some MOTM episodes featuring 007 as well. The pandemic threw a...

    Lambcast #604   Titane

    Crazy people making movies, that then get discussed by crazy people watching them. Those are the best ways to describe this week’s Lambcast. The Winner of the “Palme d’or” at this year’s Cannes Film Festival arrives on the LAMB with a bang.

    Is it a horror film, a socially conscious feminist take down of convention, a transphobic waste of time, or an artistic bravura achievement? Our...

    Lambcast #603  Dear Evan Hansen

    A musical about teen suicide sounds delightful doesn’t it? Probably not, which is one of the many obstacles this film will face when trying to find an audience. In spite of being a Broadway hit, the challenge to making this into a film is considerable. This week, the smallest flock we have had in a year, gathered to figure out why the movie is having trouble reaching the same heights of success that the play did....

    Lambcast #602  Cry Macho

    Let’s go ahead and get this out of the way. Clint is 91. That means he is far older than the members of our podcast this week. So any of you out there, thinking of mocking the old guys on this week’s show, keep in mind that we are still whippersnappers to the Man.

    Collectively, including the star of the movie, we may have the most mature Lambcast ever assembled, but it’s still a good...

    Lambcast #601 Enter the Dragon: MOTM

    Those Kicks were Fast as Lightning and it was a little bit frightening.

    One of the reasons a novelty song about Kung Fu could become a #1 hit world wide is that Bruce Lee had made martial arts films the hot ticket item of the decade. Although he did not live long enough to see it happen, his movie also also made it to number one around the world on the box office charts. If any of you are only familiar with Bruce Lee from the...

    Bonus Lambcast 600 Episode Lookback

    According to the Spreadsheet that Jay turned over to me when I took over as the host of the Lambcast, the first episode was March 14, 2010. It took me a minute to figure that out because the dates are listed as the English do, Day/Month/Year rather than the more appropriate Month/Day/Year, what do you expect from people who want us to use the metric system? That means that the podcast is over eleven years old and has run continuously all...

    Lambcast #600  Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

    600 episodes is a milestone worth celebrating, but we really don’t do that this week. Instead, we let the film we are focusing on provide all the fireworks. A new MCU hero is being introduced and there is an origin story to accomplish that. The Universe expands with this entry by allowing an under utilized part of the world to be center stage for the 25th film in the official cannon.

    Whether it is magic,...

    If you say her name five times in front of your computer, she will appear as host of this week’s Lambcast. For a second week in a row, Richard is on the road but the good sheep of the community have rounded up a few strays and they wander through the pasture dispensing opinions on what is nominally a horror film.

    Lambcast #598  MOTM: The Orphanage

    So the end of August turns out to be a confluence of interesting bumps. Lisa Leaheey champions “the Orphanage” to Movie of the Month Status. Richard is traveling this weekend so he asks Lisa to host the show by herself, since she was going to do most of the hosting anyway. Everything is set until Tropical Storm “Henri” decides to batter the Northeastern U.S. and Lisa is without power or internet connection. Knowing...

    Lambcast #597   Free Guy

    This week we finally get a film that has been promised to us on three other dates during the pandemic. The big question should be whether delayed gratification was worth it, but our guests this week found a lot of bigger questions to ask as well. This Ryan Reynolds vehicle is full of movie special effects and sardonic humor, but you will discover strengths and weaknesses that you never imagined.

    Richard was joined...

    Lambcast Episode 596 The Suicide Squad

    This week our group of super villains, “The Yak Attack” dissects the newest film from the DCEU, “The” Suicide Squad, not to be confused with simply Suicide Squad. There has been a range of opinions on line about the film, and not surprisingly, we repeat the pattern. Jeanette Ward, James Wilson, Todd Liebenow and Bubbawheat follow Richard onto the beach and into the face of enemy fire.

    We are...

    Lambcast #595   The Green Knight

    Highly anticipated, and like many other films this year, long delayed, “The Green Knight” is a retelling of the Arthurian Legend of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. It is a poem that has been translated by many, including J.R.R. Tolkien, from it’s middle English roots. This week it is translated by writer/Director David Lowery to film and our guests tackle it’s meaning, accomplishments and...
