    Lambscores: Serenity, The Kid Who Would Be King

    Two films for you this week, the solidly entertaining return of Joe Cornish (Attack The Block, watch it now) with his second feature, The Kid Who Would Be King, and whatever the heck Serenity is (seriously, I’ve no idea other than it’s bonkers, I’m trying to stay in the dark until it hits UK streaming in two weeks). Here’s what the LAMB community had to say about...

    LAMBCAST #466 JAMES BOND FRANCHISE PART 1

    The name’s cast, Lambcast, licence to discuss movie franchises.

    We’re taking inspiration from ourselves, namely how we split up the Harry Potter franchise last year, and chopping up the James Bond movies into six chunks, which we’ll hit at a leisurely pace over the next year. We’re kicking things off with, somewhat predictably, the first four films: Dr. No, From Russia With Love,...

    Lambscores: Glass

    Just the one film for you this week, M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass. It didn’t get the best critical reception, but given its themes of disappointment and not giving audiences what they want, this could well have been Shyamalan’s intention. Here’s what the LAMB community had to say about it:

    LAMBCAST #465 TOMBSTONE MOTM

    It’s movie of the month time! To celebrate Richard’s birthday we let him pick the roster of films, the LAMB community voted and Tombstone won!

    Richard and his huckleberry Jay were joined by Tombstone fans Nick Rehak and Damien Riley, as well as first time viewer and self described disliker of westerns, Zoe Rose Smith. Was she converted? Was everyone recording as sick as Val Kilmer? Were all their...

    LAMBCAST #464 SPORTS MOVIE DRAFT

    Sports drafts gave the inital idea for the Lambcast draft shows, and now we’re holding a Lambcast draft of sports movies. Full circle, baby!

    Jay refereed the draft, with Richard, Todd, Mark, Sean and Matt all competing to build the best team of sports movies. What is a sports movie? Can white men jump? Does she likes swimming? All of this and more will be answered (or at least asked) on the show! Plus there’s some...

    Lambscores: Escape Room

    January rarely starts out strong movie-wise, and whilst that’s the case this week it’s still not the worst start to a year. I’ve not yet seen Escape Room, but I’m really looking forward to catching it on streaming later in the year as it feels like a Saw sequel with more gimmicks, fewer prolonged plot contrivances and far fewer people stabbing themselves in the eye to get a key from the socket....

    LAMBCAST #463 GLASS

    Glass? Who gives a shit about glass? Turns out, we do, as it’s the topic of this week’s Lambcast!

    Jay and Richard were joined by DJ, James and Bubbawheat to peer through Glass and its myriad of fractures and stains, along with the potential half-full beauty within. They also had a spirited round of Rants, Raves and Reviews of the Week, followed by a game of Last Lamb Standing.

    The Movie of the Month for February 2019 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    To celebrate the Lambcast co-host’s birthday month, we let Richard select all the contenders for February’s Movie of the Month poll, and he’ll be hosting the upcoming Lambcast on it, so the surprise here isn’t who wins, but which film they picked that everyone else voted for. It was a very close-run race, with just one vote separating the top two...

    Lambscores: The Rest of 2018

    Here it is, the last Lambscores for films released in 2018, so it seemed appropriate to collate all the scores for the films as yet unpublished for the whole year. Needless to say, it’s quite a list! Here’s what the LAMB community has to say about a whole bunch of movies from last year:
