    Acting School 101 – September Introduction – Mickey Rooney

    Welcome Back Students!

    Rob from MovieRob here!

    Like The Director’s Chair series being run by Tony, I think that this reignited series is a great way to get a look at what the members of the Lamb community think about the work of some of the most prolific actors/actresses who have been entertaining us all for so many years.

    I plan to try and focus on an actor or actress every month who has a birthday in that given...

    Acting School 101 – August 2018 – Edward Norton

    This month’s Acting School 101 teacher was Edward Norton.

    We received a total of 156 reviews for 19 films that Edward Norton had parts in.

    That’s quite an impressive amount.

    Let’s see what the members of the LAMB community thought of Edward Norton’s career:

  • Lambscores: Equalizer 2: Here We Home Depot Again!

    Lambscores: Equalizer 2: Here We Home Depot Again!

    Apparently it’s sequel week here at Lambscores, as today’s selection are the sequels to The Equalizer, a thoroughly underwhelming Denzel Washington action flick that should not have spawned Washington’s first sequel, and Mamma Mia, a film that features far more ABBA music than anything I ever want to encounter. As such I haven’t seen either of this week’s films, and I probably never will....

    LAMBCAST #439: THE MEG

    We’ve got a great show for you to sink your jaws into this week, as we take a swim with The Meg!

    Jay was joined by a couple of newcomers, Tim Costa and Doug Jamieson to discuss whether The Meg deserves to sink or swim at the box office. For such a B-grade movie concept the discussion went in some surprising directions as we covered the Oscars, Hitchcock, Marvel and Geostorm in far greater detail...

    Lambscores: Transylvanian Skyscraper

    There’s another race for mediocrity this week, with two new releases not critically setting the world aflame. First up is part three in a franchise I’m shocked completed a part one, Hotel Transylvania (though to be fair, I’ve not seen a single second of any of them), followed by a Die Hard knock-off that failed to reach the lofty heights its name might  suggest. Here’s what the LAMB community had to...

    LAMBCAST #438: SNAKES ON A PLANE MOTM

    OK, so it’s about snakes, and they’re on a plane and, well, yeah that’s about it really.

    In an unprecedented turn of events Jay went all megalomaniacal shepherd on everyone and forbade any and all other Movie of the Month submissions for August, monopolising the board and only submitting films he wanted to see. The LAMB revolted and selected probably the film he was least excited for on the entire list,...

    LAMBCAST Extra Portion: Acting School 101 – Edward Norton ‘Reminder Post’

    As you should already know by now, Edward Norton is our actor of the month in the newly-revived Acting School 101 feature, being hosted by me, MovieRob. Alongside the monthly blogathon held here on the LAMB site, I will also be hosting a monthly podcast episode devoted to the actor and their roles, and wouldn’t you know it but that’s this very show here!

    I was joined by Audrey from the 1001 Movies and...

    LAMBCAST #437: MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – FALLOUT

    There’s a lot of podcasts out at the moment covering the latest Mission: Impossible franchise entry, but I’m willing to bet this is the only one to feature three people across two continents simultaneously performing an impression of an obscure side character from Die Hard with a Vengeance, and if you’re not going to listen for that, then I’m not entirely sure what you’re doing here.

    Lambscores: Sicario: Day of the Soldado

    No reviews for Uncle Drew this week so we’ve just got the sequel to Sicario for you today. It lost Denis Villeneuve, Roger Deakins and Emily Blunt, and subsequently dropped an entire Lambscore too. Here’s what the LAMB community thought about Sicario: Day of the Soldado:

    LAMBCAST #436: CHILDHOOD MOVIES

    It’s summertime! The cinemas are filled with blockbusters and the kids are all off school, so what better time to take a look back at the films that shaped us when we too were young and free of all the soul-crushing responsibilities of adulthood.

    Jay and Richard were joined by Getter, Audrey and Zoe to list their top 3 films they each loved when they were kids, a topic that was more difficult for some than others. Also on...

    Lambscores: Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

    It’s widely known that Jurassic Park is the greatest movie ever made [citation needed], but that’s an accolade that cannot be heaped upon the franchise born in Henry Wu’s incubator. Some argue that the films have gotten progressively worse with each new release, others – like myself – believe Jurassic Park 3 was the nadir, and found Jurassic World to be rather enjoyable. What doesn’t seem...

    LAMBCAST #435: MURDER BY DEATH MOTM

    Murder! Racism! Truman Capote! All this and more on the latest episode of the Lambcast!

    This week we’re covering the latest movie of the month, which in this case is 1976’s Murder by Death, featuring a star-studded list of both actors and characters. Does the podcast make more sense than the film? Listen to find out as Jay and Richard are joined by the film’s champion, Sean, as well as Kellee and...
