Just the one film this week, with The Curse of La Llorona offering counter-programming against next week’s Avengers: Endgame. And counter-programming in this sense doesn’t just mean horror instead of family-oriented, but also terrible as opposed to amazing (spoilers for next week). Here’s what the LAMB community had to say about The Curse of La Llorona:

No, your eyes do not deceive you, we’re covering a horror movie in May, and a recent one at that. Up is down, left is right, heads will roll. Hereditary received much critical acclaim in 2018, but what do we on the Lambcast think of it?
Jay and Richard were joined by Damien, Getter and the film’s champion, Sean, to discuss pigeons, poles and Paimon, amongst many other things.

It’s here! The culmination of a decade of Marvel movies, most of which we’ve covered on their own dedicated shows, and we’re continuing the tradition with Avengers: Endgame. The tradition also continues with Jay not being here to discuss it (seriously, this is never planned, but he’s always on vacation or unavoidably busy whenever these movies he loves get released).
Have no fear though,...

Here on the Lambcast we love drafts, and we love Marvel movies, so let’s do a Marvel Movie Draft!
However, this is a draft unlike any we’ve done before. Jay and Richard were joined by Jeanette, DJ, Bubbawheat and Cameron to not pick Marvel movies, but instead try to build their own from various components in existing films. Everyone had to pick a hero, a love interest, a parent/mentor, two buddies or sidekicks, a...

The Godfather! Back to the Future! Indiana Jones! Airport! … Species? That’s right, the latest addition to the ranks of our Movie of the Month franchise specials is the Species franchise, which also joins Airport in garnering my response of “Wait, that’s a franchise?”

Three films this week, but judging by the scores none of them are all that much to write home about, presumably why they’ve all been released in Captain Marvel‘s wake. Here’s what the LAMB community had to say about Five Feet Apart, Captive State and Wonder Park:
