    LAMBCAST #441: BRING A DISCUSSION TOPIC

    What do you do when you host a podcast, but there are no big movie releases and no obvious tie-ins to current events? It’s simple, you do a show on pretty much anything, and we call them Bring A Discussion Topics.

    Whilst Jay was off gallivanting around Wales, Richard stepped into the hosting chair and was joined by Audrey, Howard, Todd and Vern to cover every aspect of the movie-loving experience, from theatres to...

    Lambscores: Teen: Titans – Fallout!

    Lambscores have been pretty mediocre-to-poor the past few weeks, but those days are behind us as today we’re looking at the latest and potentially best Mission: Impossible movie! Christopher McQuarrie has broken the chain of each new instalment having a unique director, but it’s difficult to complain when the results are this gripping. Also covered this week is Teen Titans Go! to the Movies, an animated DC film that’s...

    LAMBCAST #440: MOST ANTICIPATED MOVIES FOR THE REST OF 2018

    As the summer blockbuster season draws to a close it’s time to look ahead to the next stage in the cinematic odyssey that is 2018: Award’s Season, when the films have fewer literal explosions, but more metaphorically explosive performances, space jazz and shirtless Hemsworths.

    Jay and Richard were joined by Audrey, Kristen and Tony to look ahead at potentially the best of what the rest of this year has to...

    Acting School 101 – September Introduction – Mickey Rooney

    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 2018 – Edward Norton

    This month’s Acting School 101 teacher was Edward Norton.

    We received a total of 156 reviews for 19 films that Edward Norton had parts in.

    That’s quite an impressive amount.

    Let’s see what the members of the LAMB community thought of Edward Norton’s career:

    American History X (2)

  • Lambscores: Equalizer 2: Here We Home Depot Again!

    Lambscores: Equalizer 2: Here We Home Depot Again!

    Apparently it’s sequel week here at Lambscores, as today’s selection are the sequels to The Equalizer, a thoroughly underwhelming Denzel Washington action flick that should not have spawned Washington’s first sequel, and Mamma Mia, a film that features far more ABBA music than anything I ever want to encounter. As such I haven’t seen either of this week’s films, and I probably never will....

    LAMBCAST #439: THE MEG

    We’ve got a great show for you to sink your jaws into this week, as we take a swim with The Meg!

    Jay was joined by a couple of newcomers, Tim Costa and Doug Jamieson to discuss whether The Meg deserves to sink or swim at the box office. For such a B-grade movie concept the discussion went in some surprising directions as we covered the Oscars, Hitchcock, Marvel and Geostorm in far greater detail...

    Lambscores: Transylvanian Skyscraper

    There’s another race for mediocrity this week, with two new releases not critically setting the world aflame. First up is part three in a franchise I’m shocked completed a part one, Hotel Transylvania (though to be fair, I’ve not seen a single second of any of them), followed by a Die Hard knock-off that failed to reach the lofty heights its name might  suggest. Here’s what the LAMB community had to...

    LAMBCAST #438: SNAKES ON A PLANE MOTM

    OK, so it’s about snakes, and they’re on a plane and, well, yeah that’s about it really.

    In an unprecedented turn of events Jay went all megalomaniacal shepherd on everyone and forbade any and all other Movie of the Month submissions for August, monopolising the board and only submitting films he wanted to see. The LAMB revolted and selected probably the film he was least excited for on the entire list,...

    LAMBCAST Extra Portion #16: Acting School 101 – Edward Norton ‘Reminder Post’

    As you should already know by now, Edward Norton 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 Audrey from the 1001 Movies and...

    LAMBCAST #437: MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – FALLOUT

    There’s a lot of podcasts out at the moment covering the latest Mission: Impossible franchise entry, but I’m willing to bet this is the only one to feature three people across two continents simultaneously performing an impression of an obscure side character from Die Hard with a Vengeance, and if you’re not going to listen for that, then I’m not entirely sure what you’re doing here.

    Lambscores: Sicario: Day of the Soldado

    No reviews for Uncle Drew this week so we’ve just got the sequel to Sicario for you today. It lost Denis Villeneuve, Roger Deakins and Emily Blunt, and subsequently dropped an entire Lambscore too. Here’s what the LAMB community thought about Sicario: Day of the Soldado:
