    MOTM/LAMBcast #153: <i>Last Year at Marienbad</i>

    I could easily lead off with some joke about how abstract Last Year at Marienbad is or how much I want to play Nim or what those people standing there like mannequins might have been thinking the whole time this film was made, but frankly, I think we did enough of that on the podcast (see below).  Suffice to say, Marienbad is a strange, interesting, boring, mysterious, exciting, beautiful, bizarre film…often times all...

    LAMB Hangout #1 (the one that we didn’t prepare too much)
    I have participated in a couple of Google+ hangouts before and think its a great communication tool so I thought we'd launch our own regular hangout. This first one was very improvised but I still hop you enjoy it....

    LAMBScores: Mama’s Last Stand in the Broken City

    Another January weekend, another dismal lineup of films. None of this week’s releases (Mama, Broken City, The Last Stand) cracked the 3.0 mark on the LAMBScore scale. Maybe next week will be better? Remember, you can head on over to the forums if you wish to add your reviews for the next...

    LAMBcast #152: Ask the LAMB (audio version)

    I believe the proper nomenclature is as follows:

    *ahem*

    If you got a problem, yo, we’ll solve it.

    That’s basically the motto for the Ask the LAMB feature here, a segment that finds its host Jason Soto alternately begging for fun/interesting questions from LAMB members and (eventually) just trolling Yahoo Answers for the truly insane questions.  It’s been a personal favorite feature of mine on the site,...

    Foreign Chops #9: Cinema of Quebec

    Hi everyone. I’m Robert from Sketchy Details and I’ll be taking over Foreign Chops. I want to thank Steve from 1001plus for starting this great feature and running it so well.

    The first topic of the new year is the cinema of Quebec. The Oscar nominations came out last week and Canada is once again in the running for Best Foreign Language Film with War Witch. In the past eight years, Canada has made the short list...

    LAMBScores: Maya’s Gangster Squad Haunts Bin Laden

    January continues to be the dumping ground for weak films, but thankfully there are still some holdovers from Oscar season to keep us happy. This week we have scores for A Haunted House and Gangster Squad, but the big one is Kathryn Bigelow’s controversial film Zero Dark Thirty. Find out what the LAMB members thought of...

    THE FILM PASTURE EP. 3: BEGINNINGS, ENDINGS AND THE MILESTONES IN BETWEEN

    We all have milestones we achieve with our blogs.  It may be getting our 100th follower or our first comment.  It may be finishing a project or a site redesign.  Sometimes, it’s even writing that first post ever, or saying goodbye to the site we’ve built over the years.

    On today’s episode of The Film Pasture, we talk to a couple of bloggers about milestones they’ve recently hit.  First, we’ll talk with...

    LAMBcast #151: Top 5 Most Anticipated for 2013

    The Film Pasture Goes to Sundance

    This special episode focuses on the just-finished 2003 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, UT.  With over 40,000 attendees, you know there was bound to be at least a few LAMBs there.  We talk to Shala Thomas from Life Between Films about her Sundance experiences: how she approaches the fest, where to go and (of course) what her favorite films were.

    I hope to do more mini-episodes like this so if you have a film festival or another...
