    LAMBcast #150: Best of 2012

    It started off as a tight race between all five films, but it didn’t take long for two to break from the pack.  In the end, the pick from Brian Roan of Dear Film, 1961’s Last Year at Marienbad,  took home the prize (see poll results below). As such, Brian becomes the latest Champion and has won a chair in the LAMBcast in which we’ll discuss the film, and the hosting rights to the MOTM segment (more...

    LAMBScores: The Misery of Slavery


    This week on the LAMBScores we catch up with 2012’s big Christmas Day releases Django Unchained and Les Miserables. On the surface, these films seem completely different, but they have more in common than you think. Specifically, both films are set in the 1800s and are focused on a former slave who becomes empowered. Find out below what the LAMB members thought of these two Oscar nominees. Remember,...

    In this first episode, we...

    MOTM/LAMBcast #149: Night of the Comet

    Before we get to the links, here’s the IMDb summary for the film, for those that aren’t familiar with...
