    Lambscores: The Life of a Power Ranger

    Where the heck did Life come from? I swear there are movies that just kind of creep up on you, until the day they get released and suddenly they’re on every bus-side and billboard, and for me that was Life, and apparently it’s actually pretty good. On the other hand, Saban’s Power Rangers was over-marketed to the point of parody, and looked awful, but some people seemed to like it. Here’s what the...

    LAMBCAST #370 DIRTY HARRY FRANCHISE MOTM

    The latest Movie of the Month franchise special – which joins the ranks with the Back to the Future trilogy, the Godfather trilogy and the Airport franchise – is the Dirty Harry series, five movies following the busiest and seemingly most chaos-attracting detective in San Francisco.

    Jay Cluitt was joined by Todd Liebenow, Jacob Lusk, Howard Casner and Dirty Harry superfan...

    Lambscores: Beauty and the Begbie

    More remakes and sequels this week, as we take a look at a long-anticipated and warmly-received sequel, and in my opinion a less-anticipated, highly unnecessary and frankly lacklustre big budget remake. Here’s what the LAMB community has to say about T2: Trainspotting and Beauty and the Beast:

    Lambcast #369 Danny Boyle Director Retrospective

    Since his debut with 1994’s Shallow Grave, Danny Boyle has been one of the most interesting and varied British film-makers, trying his hand at practically every genre and combining stunning visuals, powerful performances and awesome soundtracks, so with the long-anticipated released of the Trainspotting sequel, it’s about time we devoted a whole show to him.

    Lambscores: Kong: Skull Island

    The blockbusters are going to start coming thick and fast as the summer approach begins! This week’s sees the largest Kong yet, taking on an Apocalypse, Now-style army platoon out for his blood, but is it any good? I liked it a great deal, but who cares about what I think, when there’s a whole community of LAMBs to be consulted instead:

    Lambcast #368 Bring A Discussion Topic

    It’s time for another edition of Bring A Discussion Topic!

    Jay Cluitt was joined by Heather Baxendale, Zoe Rose Smith, Howard Casner and newcomer Simon Appleton, all of whom brought along a different topic of conversation that they wanted to chat about. We covered trailers, horror music, movie news, directors vs writers and actors, but took a few tangents along the way too, as usual.

    Also on tap: Rants and Raves of...

    LAMB TRACKS #3 JURASSIC PARK 3 COMMENTARY

    Part three of our Jurassic Park movie commentary series is here!

    Elwood Jones was joined once again by Jay Cluitt as well as Justin Gott, parasailing back onto the Lambcast after far too long of a break. The trio chatted over the movie and it’s many, many flaws, but did their best to at least try and find some positives along the way.

    We’ll continue the franchise coverage next month, but if there are...

    Lambscores: Logan’s Pun

    Superhero movies, we get a bunch of ’em every year, and so far 2017’s releases have been enjoyably different from the standard origin stories or more-of-the-same-but-more sequels. The Lego Batman Movie was immensely fun and refused to take itself (or anything, really) seriously for a second (in my opinion it should be topping the Lambscores board by a considerable margin) and now we have James Mangold’s closing of...

    Lambcast #367 Celebrity Lambpardy

    It’s time for another round of Lambpardy! And as a special treat, just like last year around this time, we’ve done away with the regular contestants and found some celebrities to compete instead!

    Sean Connery is back to host, and once again he’s brought along a couple of friends to help him, but don’t worry about them, you should be here for the guests! Team one is Arnold Schwarzenegger and President...

    Lambscores: GTFO

    It’s a good movie week! Yay! And by the sounds of it, this one is terrific. First-time feature director Jordan Peele (of Key and fame) has apparently knocked it out of the park with his debut, taking a far less comedic approach than expected. Given how much love this film has received there’s no surprise whatsoever that it has found it’s place at the top of the leaderboard, and I think it’ll take quite a bit...

    LAMBCAST #366 BEAUTY AND THE BEAST REMAKE-A-PALOOZA

    It is with deepest pride and greatest pleasure that we welcome you tonight. It’s time to relax, pull up some headphones, as the LAMB proudly presents: The Lambcast.

    For this week’s show Jay Cluitt is joined by Rebecca Sharp, Audrey Fox and Richard Kirkham for the latest Remake-A-Palooza, this time looking at three adaptations of Beauty and the Beast. We started out with Jean Cocteau’s 1946 French...

    Lambscores: A Cure For The Great Wallness

    The high riding of last week is sadly behind us as we now embrace the true mediocre scores that come with diverse opinions. These are films that some people appreciated, others did not, and most people seemed to watch then walk away with a shrug and an “it’s OK.” Chances are they won’t be bothering most peoples’ Best Of 2017 lists, but they might just escape the Worst of lists too. Anyway, here’s what the...
