    Lambscores: Avengers: Infinity War

    The Marvel Cinematic Universe. Love it or hate it (and by and large, at the LAMB we’re very much in the former category) you can’t argue that it’s massively successful, and the latest addition, Avengers: Infinity War, was easily the most ambitious and grandest in scale yet. So it’s fitting that potentially the biggest movie of all time – and at time of writing, the fourth highest in box office gross –...

    LAMBCAST #427: DEADPOOL 2

    Did you think the Deadpool films were just extremely violent comedies with a far higher ratio of butt jokes per minute (BJpM) than most other movies? Well here at the Lambcast we know there’s far more to it than that.

    Jay was joined by Kristen, Howard, Cameron and Darren to really dig into the second instalment starring the merc with a mouth, as we cover female archetypes, pansexuality and who knows what...

    Acting School 101 – June Introduction – Meryl Streep

    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...

    We received a total of 58 reviews for 22 films that Annette Bening had parts in.

    That’s quite an impressive amount.

    Lambscores: Rampage, Truth of Dare, Isle of Dogs

    We’ve got a pretty good selection for you this week: a bombastic smash ’em up video game adaptation, a throwaway horror with creepy faces and a delightful stop motion animation that’s one of my favourites of the year so far:

    Lambscores: Blockers, Chappaquiddick, A Quiet Place

    Every so often when I’m compiling these weekly posts I’ll come across an apparently widely released movie starring actual famous people and with a half-decent critical score, but which I’ve never once heard of. Such is the case this week with Chappaquiddick. Apparently it had a trailer, stars Jason Clarke, Ed Helms, Kate Mara and Bruce Dern, and is at least watchable, but this also could be an incredibly elaborate...

    LAMBCAST #424: AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR

    It’s here! Potentially the most ambitious movie of all time! And we did a podcast on it, just like everyone else!

    Jay Cluitt was joined by Bubbawheat, Jeanette Ward, Tony Cogan and newcomer Sophie Athawes to re-enact a full blow-by-blow of the entire Avengers: Infinity War plot, so if you haven’t seen it then you should really pay attention to the spoiler wall warning, as we cover everything, even things not...
