    Lambcast #572  MOTM Le Samourai

    February was Richard’s Birthday Month and it has become a tradition here for the hosts of the show to select the choices up for Movie of the Month at that time. There were eight options and the Lamb community chose the one blindspot on Richard’s list. It turns out that it was also new to some of the other guests on the show as well.

    The stylish and deliberately paced Le Samourai from Jean-Pierre Melville...

    The Movie of the Month for February 2021 is…

    It’s Movie of the Month announcement time! For February we let Richard, the host of the Lambcast, make all the choices, because he has to endure the other winners for the rest of the year, and this time around he picked, shocking no-one, a bunch of films from the 1950s, 60s and 70s. You all voted, one of them won, and the film we’ll be celebrating in February 2021 is… Le Samouraï!

    No congratulations...

    Acting School 101 – February 2021 Introduction – Josh Brolin

    Welcome Back Students!

    Rob from MovieRob here!

    I think that this 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 calendar month.

    Obviously, there are thousands upon...

    Lambcast #566 “The Red Shoes” MOTM

    While it is still possible that 2021 could go even further south than it’s predecessor, we at the LAMB look around and see signs of hope. After all, there is a vaccine now available and…well at least we have that. Also, “The Red Shoes” finally will move off of your monthly ballot for Movie of the Month because it won. If there is any hope for movie based podcasts this year, it will be in the form of looking at our rich...
