    Acting School 101 – June 2018 – Meryl Streep

    This month’s Acting School 101 teacher was Meryl Streep.

    We received a total of 158 reviews for 37 films that Meryl Streep had parts in. Plus 2 general posts about her life and work.

    That’s quite an impressive amount.

    Let’s see what the members of the LAMB community thought of Meryl Streep’s career:

    Lambscores: Deadpool 2, Book Club, Show Dogs

    We’ve got a mixed bag for you this week. Deadpool 2 peaked it’s head (or a different body part, it’s probably best not to ask) out of the schedule gap between Infinity War and Solo, and was joined by a couple of smaller releases too, one of which is easily the worst reviewed film we’ve seen on here for a long time. It’s almost impressive to obtain a review below 1.0, but Show...

    LAMBCAST #430: THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION MOTM

    The latest Movie of the Month show is here! It’s been dragged through a river of shit and come out clean(ish) the other side. That’s right, this month is all about The Shawshank Redemption.

    Freshly-impounded co-host Richard Kirkham took the lead, and was joined by the film’s champion, Rob, along with Damien and Howard. And before go ahead and dismiss the show off hand as being a full-on love-in and...

    Lambscores: Breaking In, Life of the Party

    We’re still in the wake of Infinity War, so again no powerhouse releases this week, just a Melissa-McCarthy-as-Rodney-Dangerfield back to school comedy and a Gabrielle Union in bad-ass mode home invasion thriller, neither of which is lighting up the scoreboard. Here’s what the LAMB community had to say about Life of the Party and Breaking In:

    LAMBCAST #429: MODERN ANIMATION DRAFT

    I hope you’re ready for a very animated discussion! It’s draft time once again and, following on from last year’s Disney Animation Draft, this time we’re heading towards a more modern direction by drafting movies released since 1995, otherwise known as the Year Animation Changed Forever, when a little story about some toys was released, I just can’t seem to remember it’s name right now.

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 Shane Slater from Film...

    Lambscores: Tully

    It seems most studios took the wise decision to duck and cover from Thanos’ attack and steered clear of opening anything big the week after Infinity War. As such we’ve only got one movie for you this week, the third collaboration between Jason Reitman and Diablo Cody, Tully. Here’s what the LAMB community had to say about it:

    LAMBCAST #428-2: SOLO – A STAR WARS STORY (PART 2)

    What’s this now? Another post promoting this week’s Lambcast episode on Solo: A Star Wars Story? Did Jay screw up and post it twice? No. Well, he did screw up, but this isn’t a re-post. No, when the show was recorded, it looked like there was something wrong with the hyperdrive on the recording, and the file was deemed lost, so a second show was recorded. Only then, wouldn’t you know it, but the original...

    LAMBCAST #428: SOLO – A STAR WARS STORY

    There’s a new Star Wars story in the world, so let’s talk about it! Punch it, Chewie!

    Jay was joined by Jeanette, Matt and DJ to dig into Solo in what’s easily one of the nerdiest conversations the Lambcast has ever heard.

    Also on tap: Rants and Raves of the Week, a game of Rotten Tomato Catch-Up and due to a very entertaining post-show chat, about half an hour of out-takes,...

    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 –...
