    Lambscores: A Good Time with Annabelle and Ingrid

    Well what do we have here? Could it be? A week with three well-reviewed films? Surely not! And one of them has even made it into the top 10? Who’d’ve thought? Well indeed it is so, as this week sees the collated reviews for Good Time, Ingrid Goes West and Annabelle: Creation for your perusing pleasure. Of course, it helps that not many reviews were submitted for The Glass Castle, and apparently no-one even saw The Nut Job 2: Nutty...

    LAMBCAST #390 IN THE LOOP MOTM

    It’s Movie of the Month time once again, and this month we’re wading into the thick of it with a British/American political comedy, so what better way to discuss it than with a mix of British and American movie fans?

    Jay was joined by In The Loop‘s champion and fellow Brit Tony to duke it out against Richard, Howard and newcomer to the LAMB and the Lambcast, Cameron.

    Also on tap: Rants and Raves...

    Lambscores: Kidnap The Big Dark Sick Tower

    Summer is, alas, drawing to a close, and sadly that means we’re starting to close out the films deemed unworthy of the tentpole release dates, and have been relegated to the dreaded August time slots. It’s not all doom and gloom though, with the lack of quality blockbusters some smaller gems poke through, which is exactly what happened with this week’s crop. Here’s what the LAMB community had to say about The Dark...

    LAMBCAST Extra Portion: Acting School 101 – Paul Walker  ‘Reminder Post’

    As you should already know by now, Paul Walker (RIP) 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 Darren Lucas from Movie Reviews 101 to discuss all...

    LAMBCAST #389 HARRISON FORD DRAFT

    Blade Runner 2049 is just a few weeks away at this point and, whilst there’s sadly no room in the Lambcast schedule for a show devoted to it, we can partially celebrate it in another way, by holding a draft on the original film’s star, Harrison Ford. So grab your whip, your blaster and your commemorative Firewall pickaxe, we’ve got some drafting to do!

    Jay was joined by draft veterans David and Richard,...

    Lambscores: Atomic Blonde

    Given that David Leitch has so far directed or co-directed two established-star-goes-on-highly-stylised-killing-spree movies, I think we can imagine a fairly accurate template to predict what Deadpool 2 is going to be like, and that’s fine by me. This week’s Lambscores are just for one of Leitch’s movies, Atomic Blonde, here’s what the LAMB community had to say about it:

    LAMBCAST #388 ROLL YOUR OWN TOP 5

    Got a long show for you this week, but I think it’s worth it as it’s a fan favourite – Roll Your Own Top 5!

    Jay was joined by Heather, Zoe, Howard and Damien to discuss a variety of topics, including South Korean films, introductions to horror, modern franchise reboots, man-made women and Star Wars spin-offs. Pretty eclectic mix this week, right? Well it got even more so, when we broadened the discussion to...

    LAMBCAST #387 CLUE MOTM

    There’s been a murder! Several, in fact, and someone on this very podcast did it…

    Fear not, there’s no detective work required to seek out this show, in which we covered the most recent movie of the month, arguably the greatest board game adaptation yet, Clue. Jay was joined by the movies champion, Sean, as well as big fans Jeanette, Nick and Todd to discuss the characters, weapons and numerous...

    Acting School 101 – September Introduction – Paul Walker

    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 – August 2017 – Sean Connery

    This month’s Acting School 101 teacher was Sean Connery.

    We received a total of 77 reviews for 34 films that Sean Connery had parts in. Plus 2 general posts about James Bond

    That’s quite an impressive amount.

    Let’s see what the members of the LAMB community thought of Sean Connery’s career:

    Lambscores: Monkey’s Paw

    Before anyone says anything about the post title, I know that monkeys and apes are different things, but when there’s a simian-centric movie out the same week as a be-careful-what-you-wish-for horror, well there’s only one direction I’m going in pun-wise. So without further ado, here’s what the LAMB community had to say about War For The Planet Of The Apes and Wish Upon:

    LAMBCAST #386 THE DARK TOWER

    When planning the Lambcast schedule, it’s now always easy to tell which films are going to be big summer tent-poles, and which will be less than noteworthy, so sometimes we’ll talk about Dunkirk, and other times we’ll look at The Dark Tower.

    Robert filled in as host alongside Jeanette, Howard and Damien to discuss the latest Stephen King adaptation, amongst many other things. Also on tap: Rants...
