    There’s been a murder! Several, in fact, and someone on this very podcast did it…

    Fear not, there’s no detective work required to seek out this show, in which we covered the most recent movie of the month, arguably the greatest board game adaptation yet, Clue. Jay was joined by the movies champion, Sean, as well as big fans Jeanette, Nick and Todd to discuss the characters, weapons and numerous...

    Acting School 101 – September Introduction – Paul Walker

    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...

    Lambscores: Monkey’s Paw

    Before anyone says anything about the post title, I know that monkeys and apes are different things, but when there’s a simian-centric movie out the same week as a be-careful-what-you-wish-for horror, well there’s only one direction I’m going in pun-wise. So without further ado, here’s what the LAMB community had to say about War For The Planet Of The Apes and Wish Upon:

    Lambscores: Haunted Homecoming

    Two very different movies for you this week. One is a big superhero sequel/reboot that could well be the best entry within its franchise, and the other predominantly features Casey Affleck wearing a sheet, and includes an interminably slow scene in which Rooney Mara eats a pie. I know which one I’d rather watch. Here’s what the LAMB community has to say about Spider-Man: Homecoming and A Ghost Story:

    The Movie of the Month for August 2017 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    It was a tough battle for supremacy this month, with pretty much every champion campaigning heavily for their chosen film to win the poll. Throughout almost the entirety of the voting period there was one film just in the lead, whose campaigner was going above and beyond on the leg work, and had the votes been closed 2 days earlier than they ultimately were then Vern would...

    You know when you look forward to a film and it turns out to be really good? Well my most anticipated film of the year is amongst this week’s crop of Lambscores, and I’m overjoyed that it’s at the top of the pile, and that the rest of the LAMB community also deemed it good enough to make the Lambscores Top 10, hurrah! As well as Baby Driver, this week we also have reviews of The Beguiled, Despicable Me...
