    Lambscores: Haunted Homecoming

    Two very different movies for you this week. One is a big superhero sequel/reboot that could well be the best entry within its franchise, and the other predominantly features Casey Affleck wearing a sheet, and includes an interminably slow scene in which Rooney Mara eats a pie. I know which one I’d rather watch. Here’s what the LAMB community has to say about Spider-Man: Homecoming and A Ghost Story:

    LAMBCAST Extra Portion: Acting School 101 – Sean Connery  ‘Reminder Post’

    As you should already know by now, Sean Connery 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 Richard Kirkham from Kirkham a Day and The Strother...

    Lambscores: Baby Driver, The Beguiled, Despicable Me 3, The House

    You know when you look forward to a film and it turns out to be really good? Well my most anticipated film of the year is amongst this week’s crop of Lambscores, and I’m overjoyed that it’s at the top of the pile, and that the rest of the LAMB community also deemed it good enough to make the Lambscores Top 10, hurrah! As well as Baby Driver, this week we also have reviews of The Beguiled, Despicable Me...

    LAMBCAST #384 DUNKIRK

    Do you enjoy  long stays on the beach? Weekend pleasure cruises? Short plane excursions? Then the latest Lambcast is for you!

    Jay Cluitt was joined by war movie aficionados and world war two enthusiasts Simon Appleton, JD Duran and Richard Kirkham to dig into Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk, a film that allowed us to rattle off old plane names and complain about British motorways, as you do.

    One movie this week, and it ain’t a good one, so let’s get it over with, shall we? It’s the latest Transformers movie, and frankly that’s all I need to know. Here’s what the LAMB community had to say about Transformers: The Last Knight:

    LAMBCAST #383 WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES

    War is upon us in the latest Lambcast, as we take on the film that sees the apes taking on the humans once again in the battle for world domination.

    Robert Zerbe is in the hosting chair, and was joined by Rebecca Sharp, DJ Valentine, Mario Brown and Howard “The Naysayer” Casner to monkey around with the latest edition to the Apes franchise.

    Acting School 101 – August Introduction – Sean Connery

    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...

  • Lambscores: 47 Meters Down, All Eyez On Me, Cars 3, Rough Night, The Book of Henry

    Lambscores: 47 Meters Down, All Eyez On Me, Cars 3, Rough Night, The Book of Henry

    When Cars 3 was announced, if you’d told me that upon it’s released its Lambscore would be the highest of five movies that same week, I doubt I’d have believed you. 3.14/5 isn’t exactly an incredible score, but it’s a great deal better than many might expect based on the disappointing Cars 2. Anyway, here’s the scores for Cars 3, All Eyez On Me, 47 Meters Down,...

    Acting School 101 – July 2017 – Natalie Wood

    This month’s Acting School 101 teacher was Natalie Wood.

    That’s quite an impressive amount.

    Let’s see what the members of the LAMB community thought of Natalie Wood’s career:

    LAMBCAST #382 SAVING PRIVATE RYAN MOTM

    With Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk just around the corner, this month’s Movie of the Month could well be considered a companion piece to it, as this week we’re delving into Steven Spielberg’s Saving Private Ryan.

    As the movie’s champion Rob led the discussion, and was joined by super fan and regular host Jay, relative newcomers to the film Jess and Damien, and absolute first-timer...

  • Lambscores: Mummy, Cousin Rachel and It

    Lambscores: Mummy, Cousin Rachel and It

    There’s an unintentional connection between the three movies up for today’s Lambscores – they all have very dark, almost-but-not-quite black-and-white posters. Could this be because they all have an element of horror to them? Probably. That’s more likely than all the poster-printing companies having run out of magenta ink, so let’s go with it. Anyway, here are the thoughts of the LAMB community on It Comes At...
