    LAMBCAST #420: READY PLAYER ONE

    Are you sick of the state of the world today? Want to escape to a place where everything is wonderful and exciting? A place of diverse opinions but mutual respect and appreciation for movies and life in general? Then why not listen to the latest Lambcast episode, dedicated to Spielberg’s latest blockbuster, Ready Player One.

    Jay was joined by Audrey, Cameron, Matt and newcomer Getter to delve into the Oasis and...

    LAMBCAST Extra Portion: Acting School 101 – Michelle Pfeiffer ‘Reminder Post’

    As you should already know by now, Michelle Pfeiffer is our actress 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 Damien Riley from Riley On Film to...

    LAMBCAST #419: AVA DUVERNAY DIRECTOR RETROSPECTIVE

    We’ve held many director retrospectives on the Lambcast but, somewhat unforgivably, we’ve never covered a female director. Well all that changes today, because this week’s show is dedicated to the works of Ava DuVernay.

    To celebrate the release of her latest film, A Wrinkle In Time, Jay was joined by Audrey, Rebecca, Chris and Cameron to look at her documentaries and feature films, half of which are...

    Lambscores: Deadly Sparrow

    Just two films for you this week, neither of which I thought looked particularly good, but that could be more for my general disinterest in Jennifer Lawrence than anything else. Anyway, here’s what the LAMB community had to say about Red Sparrow and Death Wish:

    LAMB Average: 2.88 (8 sites)

    Lambscores: Let’s Play Annihilation

    We’ve got two movies for you this week. First up is Annihilation, Alex Garland’s follow-up to Ex Machina, which went straight to Netflix everywhere outside of the US (fine by me, it means I’ve seen it), and then there’s Game Night, which sounds far better than expected. Check them out, and check out the reviews from the LAMB community:

    LAMBCAST #418: THE SPIELBERG DRAFT

    Ready Player One is just a couple of weeks away from being released, and it’s a film we at the Lambcast are pretty excited about, so it seemed like the perfect time to celebrate the career of one of the greatest directors working today, and the best way we know to celebrate something is to critique, debate and flat-out fight over it in a draft.

    The Movie of the Month for April 2018 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    As is customary, our April Movie of the Month is a franchise special, and as usual we had a pretty diverse range of franchises put forward, from animation to superheroes, indie romance to, well, Tremors, but there’s no real shock as to what eventually won, although some others were chasing like a giant boulder rolling behind it for some time. If that’s not a big...

    Lambscores: Prehistoric Panther

    I don’t mean to disrespect the previous few weeks of Lambscores, but I think it’s fair to say that today is where 2018’s films really begin, at least in terms of spectacle. Paddington 2 may still hold the top spot for the year so far (a fact I am in no way annoyed by), but in terms of a cultural milestone and slice of event cinema you can’t really compare anything so far to Black Panther. As such I...

    Acting School 101 – April Introduction – Michelle Pfeiffer

    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 – March 2018 – Steve McQueen

    This month’s Acting School 101 teacher was Steve McQueen.

    We received a total of 63 reviews for 27 films that Steve McQueen had parts in.

    That’s quite an impressive amount.

    Let’s see what the members of the LAMB community thought of Steve McQueen’s career:

    LAMBCAST #417: CELEBRITY LAMBPARDY

    It’s time for everyone’s favourite time of the year, Celebrity Lambpardy!

    Alas your regular celebrity host, Sean Connery, was too ill to record, but fortunately Nicolas Cage stepped up to the plate to attempt to wrangle this year’s competitors in some kind of order. Joining him in the Lambpardy studio were Matthew McConaughey, Swedish Chef, Jimmy Stewart, Jeff Goldblum, Harvey Fierstein and Al...
