    LAMBCAST #475 LAIKA STUDIO LOOKBACK

    Stop! OK, move a little bit closer to hitting play on your podcast player. Stop! Move a little bit more. Stop! Move a teensy bit more again. Stop! Oh jeez, this could take a while.

    …Several days later… This week’s Lambcast is all about the Laika studio, and specifically the five films they’ve produced. With the release of Missing Link, also known as Jay’s most anticipated original film of...

    LAMBCAST #474 SPECIES FRANCHISE MOTM

    The Godfather! Back to the Future! Indiana Jones! Airport! … Species? That’s right, the latest addition to the ranks of our Movie of the Month franchise specials is the Species franchise, which also joins Airport in garnering my response of “Wait, that’s a franchise?”

    As the series’ champion, Vern is once again hosting another Movie of the Month show about a subject with a less than fresh...

    Lambscores: Captive State, Five Feet Apart, Wonder Park

    Three films this week, but judging by the scores none of them are all that much to write home about, presumably why they’ve all been released in Captain Marvel‘s wake. Here’s what the LAMB community had to say about Five Feet Apart, Captive State and Wonder Park:

Here are the films in competition, and their groups. To make it up to the full 32 we’ve...

    As usual with Marvel releases, there’s only one film this week as everyone else wisely shied away from competing with the box office. Here’s what the LAMB community had to say about Captain Marvel:

    LAMBCAST #471 SILVERADO MOTM

    It’d be understandable if you thought you were experiencing deja vu, as it’s movie of the month time, we’re talking about a western, and there’s a Kirkham at the helm of the show’s feature discussion, but whilst there are some similarities between Silverado and Tombstone, this is a different (and potentially better?) film in its own right.

    Amanda Kirkham is once again in charge of...

    Lambscores: Parody Robot Dragon Sequels

    There were no Lambscores last week, mainly because I was nowhere near a computer and ran out of time to prep them in advance, so you know what that means… DOUBLE LAMBSCORES WEEK! FOUR MOVIES IN TOTAL! SO! MANY! SCORES!

    Here’s what the LAMB community had to say about How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, Alita: Battle Angel, Happy Death Day 2U and Isn’t It...

    LAMBCAST #470 CAPTAIN MARVEL

    It’s Marvel Movie Time! Captain Marvel (no, not Shazam, the other one) is finally here, so we’re doing our usual thing and dedicating a show to her, and her cat of course.

    Richard took the hosting chair in Jay’s absence, and was joined by Jeanette, LeAnne, Marya and Doug for a spoiler-free then spoiler-full chat, followed by Rants, Raves and Reviews of the Week and a game full of potential future Movie of the...
