Welcome Back Students!

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...
The Last Jedi is out today, and whilst that’s the topic of next week’s show, this week we’re gearing up to it by looking at its director, Rian Johnson, and his previous three films.
Jay Cluitt was joined by Richard Kirkham, Chris Staron and Daniel Lackey to discuss Brick, The Brothers Bloom and Looper, as well as predict what Johnson will possibly do with a Star Wars...
This month’s Acting School 101 teacher was Samuel L. Jackson.
We received a total of 360 reviews for 64 films that Samuel L. Jackson had parts in. Plus 1 general post about his life and work.
That’s quite an impressive amount.
Let’s see what the members of the LAMB community thought of Samuel L. Jackson’s career:
This week was almost a write-off. Last week, I announced that the next Lambscores would look at Murder on the Orient Express, Daddy’s Home 2 and A Bad Mom’s Christmas, the latter of which I’d missed covering a couple of weeks earlier. I compiled the scores and links, but it was a thoroughly underwhelming and unimpressive list of movies. Then, however, I checked to see what next week’s films...
Ho Ho Ho! It’s December, and the holiday season is in full swing, so it’s time for our latest Christmas-special Movie of the Month, and really what could be more festive than terrorists taking over a skyscraper full of hostages?
That’s right, it’s time to grab your biggest teddy bear, put on your filthiest undershirt, remove your shoes and make fists with your toes because we’re jumping off the roof...
The hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiills are aliiiiive with the soooooound of podcasts!
They said it would never happen – and by “they,” I mean “me,” mainly because I didn’t want to – but due to popular demand the Lambcast has opted for the musical genre to be the subject of its latest draft. Breaking out into song alongside Jay were Howard, Audrey, Todd and newcomer Kami Koren, who all competed to build...
As you should already know by now, Samuel L. Jackson 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 Simon from the Moustache Movie News to discuss all...
Just one film for you this week but that’s OK because it’s a big one, and a great one at that. Clearly everyone isn’t sick of the Marvel onslaught yet (myself included) as everyone seems to have mostly positive remarks on Thor: Ragnarok:
LAMB Average: 3.97 (18 sites)
The Michigan Movie Guy (5)
Surrender to the Void (5)
We’ve got a battle for mediocrity this month as two of the most middling reviewed films of the year went up against each other. Here’s what the LAMB Community had to say about Suburbicon and Jigsaw:
LAMB Average: 2.40 (6 sites)
Mahan’s Media (3.5)
Keith Loves Movies (2.5)
Wherever I Look (2)
Avengers, assemb- what? Oh, wrong franchise, sorry.
We’re taking a break from our Marvel idolising this week to take a look at the latest offering from the DC Expanded Universe, Justice League, a film fraught with production difficulties and the so-called “DC Curse”. Jay was joined by Robert Zerbe, Jeanette Ward, Richard Kirkham and Howard Casner to compare the film to our expectations, dissect some of the...
For part of the recent 400th Lambcast Spectacular we held a mini James Bond Draft, and now it’s time to vote for the winner! Dylan, Richard and Jay all competed to build the best trio of James Bond movies. You can vote at the bottom, but first let’s look at the teams:
Dylan’s Team: Skyfall, Licence to Kill, A View To A Kill
Jay’s Team: Goldfinger,...
My Girl! My Girl? My Girl! Talkin’ ’bout My Girl!
My Girl won the Movie of the Month for November, so we covered it as one of the mini segments in the epic 400th Lambcast Extravangaza, but it didn’t feel right to short change the movie like that. To make up for it, Kristen, Audrey and Jay stuck around and recorded this special bonus discussion, to dig a little deeper than we were able to do in...
