    Lambscores: The Rest of 2018

    Here it is, the last Lambscores for films released in 2018, so it seemed appropriate to collate all the scores for the films as yet unpublished for the whole year. Needless to say, it’s quite a list! Here’s what the LAMB community has to say about a whole bunch of movies from last year:

    Lambscores: Aquaman, Bumblebee, Second Act, Welcome to Marwen, Mary Poppins Returns, The Favourite, Mary Queen of Scots

    It’s the penultimate Lambscores of 2018, and as such we’re elbow-deep in both awards- and family blockbuster season, so there’s plenty of both for your perusal today. Here’s what the LAMB community had to say about Aquaman, Bumblebee, Second Act, Welcome to Marwen, Mary Poppins Returns, Mary Queen of Scots and The Favourite:

    LAMBCAST #461 TALK TO HER MOTM

    Pedro Almodóvar has made some incredible films, but this is the first time we’re exploring his work on the Lambcast. January’s Movie of the Month is Talk To Her, a gripping and powerful story of two hospitalised women and the men who care for them.

    Jay and Richard were joined by the film’s champion, Rebecca Sharp, as well as Jessica Manzo and a Lambcast newcomer, Marya Gates. Also on tap: Rants, Raves...

    Vote for February 2019’s Movie of the Month!

    Just like last August, we’re doing something a little different for February’s Movie of the Month. In fact, every other month will be themed in some way. As we celebrated Jay’s birthday in August last year, so this year we’re celebrating Richard’s birthday, and as such he has selected the range of films to choose for February’s Movie of the Month. The poll is at the bottom of the page, but first here are...

    LAMBCAST Extra Portion #21: Acting School 101 – Jan ‘Reminder Post’

    As you should already know by now, Rosamund Pike  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 Simon  from the Moustache Movie News to discuss all...

    Lambscores: Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Mortal Engines, The Mule

    Three films this week. There’s The Mule and Mortal Engines, fine, but also Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, aka the third-highest rated film of 2018 according to the LAMB community! To say I couldn’t be happier that this film is getting ranked so highly would be a lie, as somehow it’s still being beaten by the thoroughly average A Star is Born, but I’ll just be happy that so many...

    Lambscores: The Ballad of Buster Scruggs

    The problem with films being released directly to Netflix is they’re easy to forget when it comes to compiling these amalgamated posts, hence why we’re a little late getting to the round-up for The Ballad of Buster Scruggs. It wasn’t completely forgotten though, so here’s what the LAMB community had to say about the latest offering from the brothers Coen:

    The Movie of the Month for January 2019 is…

    The latest Movie of the Month has been decided upon!

    It’s almost a tradition at this point that January’s Movie of the Month winner is a film that’s, for some reason or another, deemed not great by most people. There have been exceptions, but just like with American cinemas January could be seen as a kind of dumping ground for films people don’t necessarily want to watch. Not so for January 2019! This...

    LAMBracket: Best Christmas Movie Final Results!

    The further this tournament has gone, the closer the results have been, but this has gotten ridiculous. The final results, between Die Hard and The Muppet Christmas Carol, were separated by just five votes. Richard and Simon both campaigned heavily, and some other LAMB members got involved too across Twitter and Facebook (due to an emergency and a technical issue the final could not be posted on Instagram), but of course...
