Apparently one of this week’s films, The Nun, is part of the Conjuring Cinematic Universe, a franchise that so far consists of five feature films, with three more announced for the near future, and as yet I haven’t seen any, any I’ve no real plans to either. Why not? Well it’s mainly that I’m not really a horror guy, but also to me they all sounded kind of dull, and given the reviews for The Nun...
It’s Lamb Vs Predator this week as we dig into our highly anticipated Predator franchise lookback!
Jay and Richard reunite with an entirely necessary and not-at-all excessive mid-air arm wrestle handshake, and are joined by the elite squadron of Heather, Simon and Will to dissect all four Predator films, and briefly touch upon the unfortunate AVP additions as well. Also on tap: Rants, Raves and Reviews of the Week and a...

Honestly, I’m gone for a couple of shows and the show’s structure gets thrown right out the window.
Traditionally on a Whatcha Been Watchin’ Lately episode we’ll have some guests on and everyone will talk about one film they’ve seen recently. Not today! No, with Jay still away, Richard took sole hosting duties and let Cameron, Todd, David and Howard run amok, listing up to twelve films each, plus way...
One film this week. Just one, and coincidentally that’s also the score it got. It seems the premise of Who Framed Roger Rabbit but with puppets and silly string jizz just wasn’t enough to make an actually decent film. Here’s what the LAMB community had to say about The Happytime Murders:

It’s Lambpardy time again!
There’s two competitions in one in this week’s round of Lambpardy. Yes, returning champion Chris “Tank” Tanski is back to try and defend his title against some new competitors, but there’s something much more important going on amongst those very opponents – sibling rivalry. That’s right, for the first time in Lambpardy history we’ve got siblings...
Two films! One is amongst the top 10 of the year, the other is probably amongst the bottom 10, but we don’t really keep track of that. Here’s what the LAMB community had to say about Crazy Rich Asians and Mile 22:

You know what happens when Vern submits a film for Movie of the Month? We end up talking about Showgirls.
After Howard the Duck, Jay basically vowed to never let Vern host a MOTM show again, yet somehow this happened, so in protest Jay isn’t here this week and Richard reluctantly took the hosting reigns to try and wrangle Vern, Chris and Doug towards a sensible discussion of a movie that begs the...
It probably says something about me that of today’s two movies I haven’t seen the critically acclaimed, historically significant and dramatically insightful BlacKkKlansman, but I have seen the movie where Jason Statham fights an old giant dinosaur shark. Hell, we even did a podcast on it. Judging by the reviews though I clearly made the wrong choice (regardless of how much fun I had watching The Meg). Anyway,...
2018 Movies! 2018 Trailers! Dark comedies! Heists! They’re all here for the listing on this week’s Lambcast!
Jay was joined by Nick, Damien and newcomer Troy to reel off top 5 lists on whatever topics they chose, and derail the conversation with numerous tangents and anecdotes along the way, you know the drill. Also on tap: Rants, Raves and Reviews of the week and a game!
06:34 Top 5s
As you should already know by now, Mickey Rooney 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 Tiffany from the Pure Entertainment Preservation...
Yes I’m proud of that title. Judge all you like. Given the reviews below, it may well be better than the two films we’re looking at this week. Here’s what the LAMB community had to say about Christopher Robin and The Spy Who Dumped Me:
