    Lambscores: A Kind Of Magic

    Just two films this week, a bit of a relief after the mammoth ordeal that was the recent Hodge-Podge post. Here’s what the LAMB community had to say about Bohemian Rhapsody and The Nutcracker and the Four Realms:

    LAMBCAST #454: 1960S MOVIE DRAFT

    It’s been a while since we’ve done a draft show, but it’s been even longer since the 1960s!

    Richard and Jay were joined by Nick, Todd and Audrey to compete to build the best team of movies released in the 1960s. Sci-fi, westerns, horror, musicals, pretty much every genre was tackled in a very fun show! Listen first, then vote for your favourite team in the poll at the bottom of the page.

    Lambscores: 2018 Hodge-Podge

    So this week’s film was supposed to be Hunter Killer, but given the only review submitted for that came from the Lambcast co-host Richard (find it here), I opted instead to dig through the forums for some of the smaller releases that took a little while longer to accrue the minimum of five submitted scores to be published. I figured this would be a quick job – after all, how many could there be? Evidently quite a few, hence why...

    LAMBCAST #453: FANTASTIC BEASTS: THE CRIMES OF GRINDELWALD

    What’s that? You thought we were done with all the Harry Potter talk? Think again!

    The Harry Potter franchise shows were all leading up to this, the discussion on the latest addition to the franchise, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. Was it worth the build-up? Listen to find out as Jay and Richard are joined by Amanda, James and Rebecca to lumos some light on the revelations within.

  • The Movie of the Month for December 2018 is…

    The Movie of the Month for December 2018 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    For December’s MOTM poll we once again took a festive-themed diversion into primarily Christmas films, with a Hanukkah one thrown in for good measure this year too, and as with previous winners (Die Hard, Die Hard 2, Gremlins, Batman Returns), the winner isn’t a film that everybody might consider a holiday film, but which...

    Acting School 101 – December 2018 Introduction – Denzel Washington

    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...

    Acting School 101 – November 2018 – Sylvester Stallone

    This month’s Acting School 101 teacher was Sylvester Stallone.

    We received a total of 176 reviews for 42 films that Sylvester Stallone had parts in. Plus 2 general posts about his life and work.

    That’s quite an impressive amount.

    Let’s see what the members of the LAMB community thought of Sylvester Stallone’s career:

    Lambscores: This is Halloween

    This is Halloween! This is Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!

    Ahem, guess what film we’re covering on today’s Lambcast? That’s right, it’s the Halloween sequel released 40 years after the original, confusingly with the same name, and which wiped out all the other Halloween sequels from continuity, and speaking as someone who has only seen the now just two canon Halloween...

    LAMBCAST #452: HARRY POTTER FRANCHISE LOOKBACK PART 2

    Part two of our Harry Potter franchise lookback is here, as we make our murky way through the darker half of the series, from Order of the Phoenix to the Deathly Hallows parts one and two!

    This time around, Jay is reunited with Richard, and joined by Harry Potter superfans Amanda and Nikhat to despair over Dobby, go la-la over Luna and vehemently vilify Voldemort. Oh, and the best way to enjoy this show...

    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...
