    Lambscores: Avengers: Infinity War

    The Marvel Cinematic Universe. Love it or hate it (and by and large, at the LAMB we’re very much in the former category) you can’t argue that it’s massively successful, and the latest addition, Avengers: Infinity War, was easily the most ambitious and grandest in scale yet. So it’s fitting that potentially the biggest movie of all time – and at time of writing, the fourth highest in box office gross –...

    The Movie of the Month for June 2018 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    We had a bumper crop of thirteen movies to pick from for the latest MOTM poll. That may have been too many, causing the votes to be split amongst several films, or the outcome might not have changed regardless of how many films were submitted. Either way, there’s only one winner, so for the month of June we’ll be talking about… The Shawshank...

    Acting School 101 – June Introduction – Meryl Streep

    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...

    LAMBCAST #426: MIDNIGHT RUN MOTM

    Morons! Donuts! The Litmus Configuration! It’s time for Midnight Run!

    For the latest movie of the month Jay was joined by Todd, Richard, Sean and Will to discuss an ultimate so-called guys’ movie, Midnight Run!

    Also on tap: Rants and Raves of the Week, a new game, and a near-constant barrage of incredulity at people who haven’t seen classic movies or TV shows.

    Lambscores: Rampage, Truth of Dare, Isle of Dogs

    We’ve got a pretty good selection for you this week: a bombastic smash ’em up video game adaptation, a throwaway horror with creepy faces and a delightful stop motion animation that’s one of my favourites of the year so far:

    Lambscores: Blockers, Chappaquiddick, A Quiet Place

    Every so often when I’m compiling these weekly posts I’ll come across an apparently widely released movie starring actual famous people and with a half-decent critical score, but which I’ve never once heard of. Such is the case this week with Chappaquiddick. Apparently it had a trailer, stars Jason Clarke, Ed Helms, Kate Mara and Bruce Dern, and is at least watchable, but this also could be an incredibly elaborate...

    Hello everyone, it’s time to announce the director that will be highlighted for this month and, seeing how we’ve just had the release of Avengers: Infinity War, I thought it would be good to highlight the director that started off the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Jon Favreau.

    Now, Favreau is one of those...

    The Movie of the Month for May 2018 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    Once again it has been proven that, at least when it comes to the Movie of the Month poll, persistence certainly pays off, as this month’s winner is a film that has been put forward time and time again, and it has finally achieved the hallowed title of Movie of the Month! That’s right, for the month of May we’ll be talking about… Midnight...
