    The Movie of the Month for November 2019 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon! November is theme-free, so as usual a wide selection of films were submitted, but only one could win. For this November we’ll be tackling a film from a director who has won twice before with The Shining and 2001: A Space Odyssey, but this time around we’ll be discussing his last film… Eyes Wide Shut!

    Congratulations to Nick Rehak from French Toast...

    Acting School 101 – November 2019 Introduction – Sam Rockwell

    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...

There’s a nice eclectic mix of movies today, so here’s what the LAMB community had to say about a horror sequel, a British period TV adaptation, a stripper con film, a franchise closer (hopefully), a novel adaptation, an animation about a yeti and yet another pondering space...
