    LAMBCAST #452: HARRY POTTER FRANCHISE LOOKBACK PART 1

    We’ve got a treat for you this week! A bumper double-bill of podcasts looking at the entire Harry Potter saga, a franchise so full of fantastical fancies that it just had to be split across two shows, and they’re not exactly short ones either!

    Jay was joined by Jeanette, Bubbawheat, newcomer James and returning Harry Potter trivia champion (no pressure) Rebecca to quarrel about Quidditch, lavish over...

    Lambscores: First Times at the Goosebumps Hotel

    Three films for you this week: First Man, Bad Times at the El Royale and Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween. My personal favourite is the apparently under-rated Bad Times, which I loved (but not enough to write a review, evidently), but it seems the LAMB community, as usual, doesn’t agree with me. Here are everyone’s thoughts:

    LAMBCAST Extra Portion #19: Acting School 101 – Sylvester Stallone ‘Reminder Post’

     

    As you should already know by now, Sylvester Stallone 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 Tony from Coog’s Reviews to...

    Lambscores: A Star is Born like a Turd in the Wind

    We’ve got two films for you this week, and one of them has made it onto the top 10 of the year so far. More than that, it’s in the top spot, and I, for one, do not agree with that ranking. The film in question is A Star is Born, a film that in my opinion is utterly fine and nothing more. The Lambcast that featured a review on it (which I was unable to be on) featured a very discussion containing divided opinions, with two...

    LAMBCAST #450: SCREAM FRANCHISE LOOKBACK

    I scream, you scream, we all scream for the Scream franchise!

    This year’s Halloween-special, horror-centric month-capper is another franchise lookback, this time on the franchise you all voted to be the one we should cover this month, the Scream franchise! Four films of varying quality and one silly mask, all ready to be stabbed open and dissected by the crew. Jay and Richard were joined by a bumper crop...

    Lambscores: Night School for Smallfeet

    Just two films this week, we’re in a smaller movie lull between Oscar-bait with a light comedy and a family animation, in which I’m reliably informed Zendaya plays Meechee. Here’s what the LAMB community had to say about Night School and Smallfoot:

    LAMBCAST #449: HALLOWEEN 2018

    There’s a new Halloween movie! Technically it’s the 11th Halloween movie. Also it’s the second. And it has the same title as the first. And the ninth. Which apparently doesn’t exist any more. Confused? Then you need to listen to this week’s Lambcast!

    Jay and Richard were joined by Amanda, Courtney and Robert to cut open the new movie with a terrifyingly large knife and a worrying...

    Acting School 101 – November 2018 Introduction – Sylvester Stallone

    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...

    The Movie of the Month for November 2018 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    For November’s MOTM poll there were five films submitted, but it was really only a two horse race between the competitors undertaking the most campaigning. Those two were Simon and Rob with The Hunt For Red October and Trains, Planes and Automobiles. It was an incredibly close run but, the winner, by just three votes is… The Hunt For Red...

    We received a total of 182 reviews for 29 films that Jeff Goldblum had parts in.

    Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension (1)

    Lambscores: The Nation With An Assassination In Itself

    Three films this week: one good, one bad, one entertaining but mediocre, nothing to really set the world alight. Here’s what the LAMB community had to say about Assassination Nation, The House With A Clock In Its Walls and Life Itself:

    LAMBCAST #448: THE HAUNTING MOTM

    It’s time for the some horror over on the Lambcast!

    Traditionally the run up to Halloween is dedicated to horror films and franchise here at the LAMB, and that’s no different this year with our horror-themed Movie of the Month. This time around the original 1963 version of The Haunting is our focus, with its champion Howard Casner taking his first seat in the MOTM host chair. He’s joined by Sean, Tony,...
