    Acting School 101 – July Introduction – Natalie Wood

    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 #379 THE SPY WHO LOVED ME MOTM

    It’s Movie of the Month time again on the Lambcast, and for the second time we’re talking about a James Bond movie, in this case The Spy Who Loved Me, the 10th Bond film overall and the third to star the sadly departed Sir Roger Moore.

    Now when it comes to talking about Bond, surely nobody does it better that Aaron Neuwirth, the movie’s champion. He was joined by Richard Kirkham, Bubbawheat and Jay...

    Lambscores: Alien Pirate Lifeguards

    Apologies for the delay in Lambscores posts recently, as you may have noticed the LAMB site was down for a short period, but is now back up and running, so there’s two weeks of scores here today! That’d be so much more exciting, if only they were for better movies. Alas, here’s what the LAMB community thought of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales/Salazar’s Revenge, Alien: Covenant and...

    Acting School 101 – June 2017 – Gene Wilder

    This month’s Acting School 101 teacher was Gene Wilder

    We received a total of 31 reviews for 17 films that Wilder had parts in.

    That’s quite an impressive amount for someone only having starred in only 22 films in his career.

    Let’s see what the members of the LAMB community thought of Wilder’s career:

    Lambscores: Snatch 2: Lock Stock and a Stone-bed Sword

    I’m not gonna lie, this week is not a good one for new releases. King Arthur looked like it might be decent, and given Snatched was Amy Schumer’s follow-up to Trainwreck there were high hopes there too, but alas it seems expectations were mostly disappointed given the generally negative scores from the LAMB community:

  • The Movie of the Month for June 2017 is…

    The Movie of the Month for June 2017 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    June’s Movie of the Month race saw a great deal of campaigning from at least three of the contenders. Damien, Kristen and Vern all fought tooth and nail to try and get either Breaking Away, My Girl or The Neon Demon to victory, but alas a great tragedy fell with the sad loss of Sir Roger Moore, so it was no surprise that the eventual winner...

    Lambscores: Gotta Guard That Galaxy Again

    2017 once again sees a steady stream of superhero movies for us all to enjoy (there’s another promising-looking one released today that you may have heard of), but perhaps the most eagerly anticipated was Marvel’s first entry of the year, the sequel to 2014’s surprisingly awesome Guardians of the Galaxy. Personally I really enjoyed this film and think Kurt Russell is a terrific addition to the franchise, plus it...

    LAMBCAST Extra Portion: Acting School 101 – Gene Wilder ‘Reminder Post’

    As you should already know by now, Gene Wilder (RIP) is our actor of the month in the newly-revived Acting School 101 feature, being hosted by me, MovieRob. Alongside the monthly blogathon held here on the LAMB site, I will also be hosting a monthly podcast episode devoted to the actor and their roles, and wouldn’t you know it but that’s this very show here!

    I was joined by Damien Riley from the Talking Stars Podcast to discuss all...

    Lambscores: Early 2017 Round-Up

    This week I was all set to present to you the LAMB community’s thoughts on The Circle and How To Be A Latin Lover. The only problem is, those films didn’t seem to appeal to pretty much anyone (not I can blame you) so we’ve had scarcely any reviews in for either! That’s fine though, because for the past few months I’ve been shamefully neglecting some of the smaller releases, which round about now...

    LAMBCAST #374 SCHOOL OF ROCK MOTM

    It’s Movie of the Month time once again for the Lambcast, as we take a look at the winner for May, School of Rock.

    Jay Cluitt was joined by the movie’s champion, Rebecca Sharp, as well as Richard Kirkham and Sean Homrig to discuss the film and what makes it such a delight to behold (spoiler alert, we all liked this movie and you should too!).

    Also on tap: Rants and Raves of the Week and a couple of games of...
