    THE LAMB DEVOURS THE OSCARS – POOL RESULTS!

    The 91st Academy Awards ceremony happened last night/this morning/at some point in the recent past, so now we know who won, who lost and who wore a train made of stuffed rabbits, there’s only one question on everyone’s minds – who won the LAMB’s first annual Oscar pool? We had 33 entrants, thank you to everyone who played, but there can only be one winner so, without any further ado, here’s the rankings of the...

    LAMBCAST #467-B 2019 OSCARS WRAP-UP

    The Oscars have happened! The Oscars have happened!

    We stayed up to watch the Oscars so you didn’t have to, and now you can listen to our thoughts.

    A tired and mostly addled Jay was joined by Richard, Amanda, Howard and Vern to discuss the locks and surprises of the show, and who correctly predicted the most wins.

    The show can be found, of course, via iTunes – just do a search for...

    LAMBCAST #467 2019 OSCAR PREDICTIONS

    The awards season is almost over, so that can mean only one thing – it’s time for the Lambcast’s Oscar predictions show!

    Jay was unable to host, Richard didn’t really want to and Kevin Hart turned down the offer, so MovieRob stepped in to host his first ever Lambcast proper, after helming the Acting School shows for almost two years. He was joined by Richard, Vern, Courtney and Howard to make their...

    Lambscores: Serenity, The Kid Who Would Be King

    Two films for you this week, the solidly entertaining return of Joe Cornish (Attack The Block, watch it now) with his second feature, The Kid Who Would Be King, and whatever the heck Serenity is (seriously, I’ve no idea other than it’s bonkers, I’m trying to stay in the dark until it hits UK streaming in two weeks). Here’s what the LAMB community had to say about...

    LAMBCAST #466 JAMES BOND FRANCHISE PART 1

    The name’s cast, Lambcast, licence to discuss movie franchises.

    We’re taking inspiration from ourselves, namely how we split up the Harry Potter franchise last year, and chopping up the James Bond movies into six chunks, which we’ll hit at a leisurely pace over the next year. We’re kicking things off with, somewhat predictably, the first four films: Dr. No, From Russia With Love,...

    Lambscores: Glass

    Just the one film for you this week, M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass. It didn’t get the best critical reception, but given its themes of disappointment and not giving audiences what they want, this could well have been Shyamalan’s intention. Here’s what the LAMB community had to say about it:

    Richard and his huckleberry Jay were joined by Tombstone fans Nick Rehak and Damien Riley, as well as first time viewer and self described disliker of westerns, Zoe Rose Smith. Was she converted? Was everyone recording as sick as Val Kilmer? Were all their...

    LAMBCAST #464 SPORTS MOVIE DRAFT

    Sports drafts gave the inital idea for the Lambcast draft shows, and now we’re holding a Lambcast draft of sports movies. Full circle, baby!

    Jay refereed the draft, with Richard, Todd, Mark, Sean and Matt all competing to build the best team of sports movies. What is a sports movie? Can white men jump? Does she likes swimming? All of this and more will be answered (or at least asked) on the show! Plus there’s some...
